Hilton has signed a deal to bring its Curio brand to Tuscany, Italy.
The 101-guestroom La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena is set to welcome guests from March 2017.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton said: “La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena is a stunning, one-of-a-kind hotel and, in joining the Curio Collection, this remarkable property will keep its unique identity while benefiting from Hilton’s support as a leading global hospitality company.
“With over 11 million tourists visiting Tuscany every year, there continues to be strong demand in the region for an upscale, full service hotel, and we’re absolutely delighted to welcome La Bagnaia into the Curio Collection.”
Surrounded by the beautiful Sienese countryside, La Bagnaia is a tranquil oasis set against a landscape scattered with charming medieval hamlets and towns.
Spread over 1,100 hectares, the upscale hotel has a village-like look and feel, divided across a number of buildings and featuring two main ‘hamlets’ - Borgo La Bagnaia and Borgo la Filetta.
The resort includes the Buddha Spa by Clarins and is connected to an 18-hole golf course.
The range of facilities provided by the hotel for leisure and business travellers include two restaurants and two bars, three swimming pools, 12 treatment rooms, a tennis court, and conference rooms which combined cater for almost 1,000 delegates.
Situated just 12 kilometres from the city of Siena - a World Heritage Site and one of Italy’s most popular tourist destinations - the hotel is conveniently located for guests wishing to access the city’s many attractions including the Piazza del Campo, the Mangia Tower and the Santa Maria Assunta Cathedral.
Steeped in history, culture-rich Siena and its surrounding areas offer multiple attractions including exquisite Italian cuisine and world-famous vineyards.
The resort is 95km from Florence Peretola Airport and 130 km from Pisa International Airport, both of which provide regular domestic and international flights.
Siena-Ampugnano Airport is only seven kilometres away, while Siena’s main railway station is 30 kilometres from La Bagnaia and also offers access to a number of national rail services.
Many frequent bus services are also available, and the hotel is easily accessed by car and holds 360 car parking spaces.
