Once again, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has put its name on a unique property that will stand out in location, design and amenities. The company recently announced that Bald Mountain de Mexico’s ultra-luxury resort currently in development in San Miguel de Allende will be a Rosewood Resort.

When it opens in late 2009, the Rosewood property will combine an intimate ultra-luxury resort, private residences and a spectacular spa, all with the local charm and culture of San Miguel de Allende a historical colonial town located in the mountainous state of Guanajuato in central Mexico.

“We are delighted with Rosewood's involvement in Rosewood San Miguel de Allende and Artesana Rosewood Residences,” said Scott Writer, a principal of Bald Mountain de Mexico. “The Rosewood brand is an international symbol of quality and luxury in the hospitality industry and is the ideal partner for our newest development in San Miguel de Allende.”

Within the historical heart of downtown San Miguel de Allende, the new property will present 63 beautifully appointed guestrooms, including 15 deluxe guest rooms, 46 spacious suites and two multi-bedroom presidential suites encompassing more than 1,700 square feet each.

All rooms will provide luxurious amenities such as fireplaces, balconies and private outdoor terraces, many of which will include a plunge pool. The resort will also feature a Rosewood spa that will offer guests one-of-a-kind ambience, style and attention to detail. Food and beverage options will incorporate casual and fine dining restaurants, a rooftop lounge and tapas bar, and a wine and tequila cellar available for intimate private dining events.

“We are so pleased to announce Rosewood San Miguel de Allende and our relationship with Bald Mountain de Mexico,” said John M. Scott III, president and chief executive officer for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.

“This will be Rosewood’s third property in Mexico. And just as Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort in Los Cabos and Rosewood Mayakoba in Riviera Maya embrace the unique history, architecture and culture of their respective communities, this property will be a stunning complement to the vibrant San Miguel de Allende community.”

Designed to define luxury in San Miguel de Allende, the Rosewood property will also boast the Artesana Rosewood Residences. Crafted by local artisans with the look and feel of Old San Miguel, the residences will capture the historical essence of one of Mexico’s most beloved towns.
Two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom residences available for sale later this year will range in size from 1,800-square-foot casitas to 7,500-square-foot villas. Residents will enjoy full access to all resort amenities.

“Bald Mountain is an excellent development partner for Rosewood,” Scott added. “Their experience in creating spectacular properties that embrace a community’s architectural, historical and environmental customs perfectly matches Rosewood's guiding principle, A Sense of Place.”
