Rosewood Schloss Fuschl is set to open its doors in late 2023. The group has been selected by Arabella Hospitality, a subsidiary of Schörghuber Corporate Group, to manage the historic Austrian hotel once it has reopened.
The legendary Hotel Schloss Fuschl stood in a 15th century castle originally built for Austrian royalty on the banks of the Lake Fuschl, near Salzburg. Renovation works began on the site in 2022 and it will reopen under the management of Rosewood before the end of next year.
Once renovated, Rosewood Schloss Fuschl will boast 98 rooms, including 46 suites and 6 chalets. It will also house world-class restaurants and lounges as well as an Asaya wellness complex featuring 8 treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a fitness centre.
It is the second collaboration between Arabella Hospitality and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, after Rosewood Munich. The two will ensure the site, which has operated as a hotel since 1954, does not lose touch with its past and heritage through Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® guiding concept.
The announcement comes as part of Rosewood’s ambitious expansion plans in Europe. Projects in Amsterdam, Munich, Rome, London and Venice are all in the group’s pipeline.
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.
Florian Schörghuber, Co-CEO of Schörghuber Corporate Group
I am delighted that, in addition to Rosewood Munich, we will now also entrust Rosewood Schloss Fuschl to our internationally renowned partner Rosewood for management. Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is the perfect luxury hotel brand for the tradition-rich castle with its spectacular location on Lake Fuschl. We are convinced that together we can successfully position it in the European luxury resort segment after the extensive renovation. Rosewood's values and culture are an excellent fit with ours. We are already looking forward to welcoming the first guests from all over the world in Munich and at Lake Fuschl.
Karl-Heinz Pawlizki, CEO of Arabella Hospitality
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 have become an integral part of Rosewood’s brand DNA, and we are honoured to be entrusted with continuing the legacy of this notable property.
