    Kimpton Hotels to make its Spanish debut in early 2020

    Kimpton Vividora in Barcelona will shelter bold Barcelona-inspired design and the brand’s signature heartfelt hospitality, along with creative Mediterranean dining and a rooftop pool…

    Located in Barcelona’s famous Gothic Quarter, with 156 beautifully appointed guest rooms and three distinct restaurants and bars, Kimpton Vividora Hotel is poised to be the most exciting hotel opening in Barcelona in 2020.

    Kimpton Vividora Hotel’s design has been overseen, in part, by Henry Reeve, Head of Interior Design at IHG and who won Highly Commended in the Interior Designer of the Year category at The Brit List Awards last week. The interiors in the hotel are inspired by the textures, colours and historic details of the city. Kimpton’s Creative Director and Global SVP of Design, Ave Bradley, collaborated with local design agency El Equipo Creativo to infuse all spaces with an authentic Barcelona feel, contemporary details and local artwork.

    Perched one floor above the lively streets, Fauna restaurant will welcome guests into a warm space reminiscent of an elegant Barcelonian home. Chef Ferran López’s menu is rooted in Mediterranean flavours and family recipes with a creative, Kimpton twist.

    On the hotel’s ground floor, floor to ceiling windows offer a look at Cafè Got which will offer locally-roasted artisan coffee and light bites by day, and natural wines, artisanal vermouth and cocktails by night.

    The rooftop bar, Terraza de Vivi, will feature a beautiful pool with sun loungers, elegant lighting, pergolas and lush greenery. The rooftop bar offers clever cocktails paired with creative small plates and expansive views of the city centre.

    Mike Robinson, a native of Washington, D.C. has been appointed General Manager of the first Kimpton property in Spain. Mike will oversee the opening of the 156-room hotel, including three restaurant and bar outlets.

    “We are very excited to bring Kimpton to Spain for the first time. From the thriving diversity and inclusiveness, to the passion for gastronomy and the arts, we couldn’t think of a more fitting first city than Barcelona. We are honoured to be Gothic Quarter’s new neighbour and member of the community, as well as becoming Barcelona’s best loved hotel,” said Mike Robinson, General Manager, Kimpton Vividora Hotel.

    Kimpton spaces and experiences centre on its guests, offering inspiring design that evokes curiosity, to forward-thinking flavours that feed the soul. Every detail is thoughtfully curated and artfully delivered, so that guest experiences remain meaningful, unscripted and luxurious without the fuss.

    Kimpton Hotels unveils plans for new Tampa hotel

    1000 562 Daniel Fountain

    Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has announced that it will manage a new, luxury lifestyle boutique hotel in Tampa, Florida, that will incorporate a restaurant from Michelin-starred Tuscan chef Silvia Baracchi.

    The property, which is due to open in early 2018, further expands Kimpton’s footprint on the gulf coast of the Sunshine State and will be its seventh hotel in Florida, joining the recently opened Hotel Zamora in St. Pete Beach, along with existing hotels in South Beach, Miami, Palm Beach and Vero Beach.

    The hotel will be ideally located at the intersection of O’Brien and Laurel streets in the heart of Tampa’s thriving Westshore neighbourhood. The new-build property, built as a modern Italian piazza, will form the heart of a thriving community area, essentially creating an intimate town square in an otherwise commercial area. The luxury lifestyle hotel will be designed by award-winning architect Albert Alfonso, who has earned a reputation for ingeniously highlighting the community activities that occur within his spaces.

    The property will feature 150 rooms and suites spanning five stories, along with a rare Tampa rooftop bar that highlights the spectacular sunsets. There will also be as separate rooftop event space for weddings and special gatherings and the property will feature more than 4,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space, including dedicated venues for musical performances and a lobby bar, pool and fitness centre.

    The new Tampa hotel will also house the first US outpost for Chef Silvia Baracchi, who gained international acclaim at Il Falconiere, a Michelin-starred restaurant and retreat in Cortona, Tuscany. The intimate fine dining restaurant will be supplied by a new off-site, state-of-the-art hydroponic farm named Red Barn Farm, which will devote nearly eight acres of climate-controlled growing capacity exclusively to the property (but guests can still catch a glimpse of the growing techniques thanks to a showpiece vertical garden).

    The owner and developer of the new hotel, Giunta Group, is a Tampa-based developer that has built and managed a variety of real estate projects including retail, residential, and commercial projects.

    “This signature boutique hotel will be unlike anything else in Tampa, from the rooftop bar and access to the fresh air piazza, to the design by renowned architect Albert Alfonso, and the one-of-a-kind dining experiences,” said The Giunta Group CEO Richard S. Giunta. “As local developers, we were especially drawn to Kimpton’s leadership managing boutique hotels and restaurants around the US and within Florida. We knew Kimpton would bring heart to a hometown project for us.”
