The Rezidor Hotel Group will open the Hotel Missoni Ilha de Cajaíba in Brazil in early 2012.
The hotel will feature 118 guest rooms and suites and 32 villas and with this signing Rezidor brings the total number of Missoni hotels to five.
The first Hotel Missoni debuted in Edinburgh just in June last year and further properties are also due to open in Cape Town and Oman.
Hotel Missoni is developed in co-operation with the iconic Italian fashion house Missoni as a new and distinctively different kind of lifestyle hotel targeting well-travelled individuals with a strong interest in design, an understanding of food and wine, a belief in authenticity, and a cognizance of culture from a contemporary point of view.
Rezidor, president and CEO, Kurt Ritter said: “I’m delighted to add another unique Hotel Missoni to our portfolio with the interior design once again being led by Rosita Missoni herself. At the same time I’m proud to enter a new country – Brazil is the 59th nation where Rezidor is present and the first country outside our core region Europe, Middle East and Africa.”
Property Logic Brazil, managing director, Dick Blom said: “Ilha de Cajaíba is a truly unique project – designed to work in harmony with nature – and therefore a natural choice to partner with a unique brand like Hotel Missoni. Together we share a passion for a new concept in lifestyle, design and superior levels of comfort that will make the resort the most luxurious project in north-east Brazil.”
Hotel Missoni Ilha de Cajaíba will be part of a luxurious, eco-friendly resort development on the island of Cajaíba, within the Bahia de Todos os Santos (All Saints’ Bay). It is located 40km from the international airport and the city of Salvador, which has been Brazil’s first capital city and is today the capital city of Bahia.
Besides 118 rooms including 48 suites, Hotel Missoni will offer two restaurants including the signature Missoni Cucina and a Bar Missoni too.
Additionally, 32 luxurious Missoni villas with golf and sea-views will be operated by the hotel. Leisure facilities will include a private beach and swimming pool.
Guests will also have access to the island’s other facilities which will comprise a signature golf course, five other luxury hotels, a conference centre, sports centre, a marina, spas, retail shops, water sports and yacht club, and a heliport.
