Rosewood to take over Marriott’s Schloss Fuschl Hotel in Austria

The Schloss Fuschl Hotel, which was under Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand until now, has been taken over by Rosewood Hotels and Resorts and will open as Rosewood Schloss Fuschl in 2023 after undergoing renovation.

Arabella Hospitality, a subsidiary of Schörghuber Corporate, has appointed Rosewood Hotels and Resorts to manage this legendary hotel in Austria. Idyllically situated on the banks of Lake Fuschl, the graceful, historic property is reminiscent of a fairytale castle and has been welcoming illustrious guests for centuries.

The luxury hospitality brand says that the “reimagining of this 15th century landmark not only adds to Rosewood’s unique collection of ultra-luxury hotels and resorts, but cements the brand’s status as a meticulous and caring guardian of some of the world’s most iconic heritage buildings”.

Located on the shores of turquoise-blue Lake Fuschl, surrounded by mountains and forests, Rosewood Schloss Fuschl is only a short distance away from picturesque Salzburg, a city famous for its history, culture, music and more.

We are pleased to continue our growth in Austria, with the addition of this beautiful and tranquil lakeside property. Complementing the opening of Rosewood Vienna, this property expands our presence in this storied destination with a unique resort offering. Reimagining and restoring historic spaces has become an integral part of Rosewood’s brand DNA, and we are honored to be entrusted with continuing the legacy of this notable property.

said Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of Rosewood Hotel Group.

The full renovation, beginning in 2022, will update the structure and grounds. The hotel feature 98 well-appointed guestrooms, including 46 suites and 6 chalets. In addition, Rosewood Schloss Fuschl will be home to multiple restaurants and lounges and will also feature Asaya, Rosewood’s integrative well-being concept, with eight treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a fitness center.

First used as a hotel space in 1954, Hotel Schloss Fuschl was initially constructed as a castle to serve as a country escape for Austrian royalty, with its original structure dating back to 1450. Across its fabled history the resort has been acclaimed as an exquisite, tranquil retreat for discerning travelers from film stars to foreign dignitaries. Its silhouette has been synonymous with the grandeur and glory of elegance through time.

This is the second partnership between Arabella Hospitality and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, with the brands currently working together to debut Rosewood Munich.

My family is once again investing heavily in the substance of this magical place and in its soul. Along with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts who, with their A Sense of Place philosophy, are the perfect partner for Schloss Fuschl; we will lead our hotel into a new, successful era and secure and expand it as a home of exceptional hospitality and equally as an important economic contributor to the province of Salzburg.

said Florian Schörghuber, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Schörghuber Corporate Group.

We are already looking forward to welcoming the first guests from all over the world in Munich and at Lake Fuschl.
