As a travel writer, I see that many lodging establishments try to capture the elusive sense of “home.” Of course, that’s a noble objective, but sometimes, you only want a capital-V vacation. Thus, while a decent hotel might provide you with the comforts of home, a fantastic hotel can provide you with something much better: a sense of community in a completely renovated, modern, and distinctive setting. That is precisely what the new Rosewood Munich accomplishes.

During drinks at the property’s October launch celebration, Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, said, “Munich hasn’t seen this before ‚ÄĒ a hotel with a vibe.” With all the artists we feature, the hotel “speaks to the community and place,” he continued. We are relatively confident about this place.  

The current state of Rosewood Munich represents the result of a ten-year endeavor. And it’s as unique as you would anticipate from ten years of labor.

The foyer, 132 guest rooms, Brasserie Cuvilli√©s restaurant, Asaya Spa, and other areas are all decorated with soft earth tones, light woods, royal blue accents, and opulent emerald green velvet furniture that you can’t help but touch. This includes the hotel’s flagship Maximillian Suite, which has a full kitchen and soaking tubs in every bathroom. Named after a royal Bavarian dynasty, it boasts almost 2,500 square feet of living space and starts at over $25,000 per night. Tara Bernerd & Partners, who collaborated with Munich-based architectural company Hilmer Sattler to create the most opulent but welcome room conceivable, is responsible for all these glitzy d√©cor details. 

Bernard said, “Rosewood Munich is our first project in Germany with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and is a key moment for us.” We have aimed to incorporate a modern interpretation of Baroque architecture with a sophisticated residential design. In this lively and diverse city, this refined feeling of refinement will offer a space for distinguished visitors and residents to mingle.

The Rosewood Munich seems lived in, even though it still has the fresh hotel scent. It’s large but comfortable. As you stroll through the common areas, you’re sure to run into both new and old friends getting together over delicious chocolates that are laid out on the table, visitors reading books while relaxing on the soft chairs by the picture windows, and maybe even a four-legged friend or two stretching out like they owned the space. 

One location, though, that you might or might not see when visiting the hotel is 100B; it’s an uber-exclusive and incredibly exclusive speakeasy. I will only ruin a few details here since discovering will only be a few half the joy. I did, however, get a good look at 100B, which is tucked up someplace close to the bar. With its dark lighting, deep red leather furniture, and scarce spirits behind the bar‚ÄĒincluding a couple of bottles of Pappy Van Winkle that would make any whiskey enthusiast go bonkers‚ÄĒit’s as sultry as it gets. Do you want to enter? Attempt befriending a hotel bartender. They may divulge the location and the secret code. Just know that when you inquire about 100B, they are supposed to remain exclusive, so don’t be shocked if they give you a confused look.

Here is my whole assessment of the new Rosewood Munich, along with other information you may find helpful.

The hotel features 59 suites and 73 roomy guest rooms, including five luxurious homes that are large, apartment-style lodgings perfect for large parties or longer stays. The price ranges for entry-level rooms are between ‚ā¨700 and ‚ā¨2,750 (about $740 to $2,904), suites are between ‚ā¨1,200 and ‚ā¨4,650 (roughly $1,267 to $4,910), and homes are between ‚ā¨4,300 and ‚ā¨35,000 (roughly $4,540 to $36,954). Each apartment offers a beautiful view of Munich’s internal courtyard or skyline. You can anticipate custom furniture, minibars stocked with regional delicacies, and marble bathrooms featuring shampoos scented with rosemary that will make your hair smell better than ever. 

Rosewood Munich’s Spa Assaya Spa

The hotel’s mountain environs inspire much of the design and treatments offered at the Asaya Spa. Indulge in holistic therapies here with items from Ground Wellbeing, Dr. Barbara Sturm, OTO, and EviDenS de Beaut√©. Six treatment rooms, two saunas, steam rooms, and an indoor pool are all included in the 1,300-square-foot spa. I suggest making an appointment for The Aufguss Journey, an aromatherapy-based 120-minute treatment that consists of three stages: a body scrub, a wrap, and a massage. I like that the treatment preserves the crucial “sense of place” Rosewood is known for by combining natural pine and spruce. 

Food and Drinks Rosewood Munich’s Bar Montez interior

Cuvilli√©s is responsible for introducing more great dining to Rosewood Munich. The restaurant serves dishes centered around regional foods, such as lamb from a breeder in Jochberg, which is only two hours away, and Helmut Schlader Alpine caviar, which are available to visitors and residents. The cuisine highlights include wiener schnitzel, and bite-sized steckerlfisch (grilled fish) served with spinach dumplings. Don’t forget to try the Celeriac Cream Soup as an appetizer, though. Made with white balsamic, truffle, and spices, it’s the ideal way to start a decadent dinner. 

After your last dinner, head to Bar Montez, where you can enjoy live jazz musicians strumming in the corner while sipping a custom drink, wine, or local beer. 

Things to Do and Things Seen

The hotel has a specialized concierge service to help visitors create custom itineraries. The group may assist with scheduling private guided tours via nearby institutions such as the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) and trips to notable locations like the Nymphenburg Palace or more exhilarating events like BMW Driving Tours.

The hotel also welcomes children with open arms. The concierge staff is pleased to arrange special events for them, such as crafts and culinary lessons in the area. To allow parents to enjoy a night out without their children, the hotel is also pleased to help with babysitting services.

Sustainability and Accessibility 

The Rosewood Munich features a ground-floor elevator for convenient access in and out of the building and three ADA-compliant rooms. Regarding sustainability, 1,500 tons of metal, cables, copper pipes, reinforced concrete, and glass were among the 96 percent of demolition components recycled during hotel construction and used in the new building. Like other Rosewood establishments, this hotel adheres to the company’s “Relationship Hospitality” concept, which calls for strong links with regional vendors to lessen the environmental impact of the supply chain. The most remarkable feature is the trash-to-energy bins in the brasserie kitchen, which power a portion of the eatery.

How to Get the Best Deal at Rosewood Munich’s Entrance

At Rosewood, several methods exist to get the most out of your deal. If you reserve one of the Rosewood Escapes, you’ll receive complimentary breakfast for two, free use of the fitness center, and free admission to Asaya Spa. There’s also the More Rosewood Offer, with free admission to Asaya Spa and a complimentary third night for every two consecutive paid nights. The Suite Sojourn is the last option; it offers access to the spa and fitness center and a 20 percent discount off the best available rate at the hotel.
