The Pavilions Hotel & Resorts has finalised The First Roma resort in the Italian capital with the opening of a third site.

Lifestyle hotel The Pavilions Rome, The First Musica began operations on 1 July 2022.

Tripartite resort

Housed in a mid-century building originally designed by architect Mario Docci, and now elegantly renovated by Studio Marincola, the new five-star boutique joins sister hotels The First Arte and the First Dolce to complete a unique tripartite urban resort experience in the Eternal City. Collectively dubbed The First Roma, the three hotels blend la dolce vita with contemporary Roman culture, tantalising the senses through art, gastronomy and wellbeing.

Framing oversized windows, the strikingly modern mesh and concrete façade in natural brass tones pays homage to Richard Meier’s iconic Museo dell’Ara Pacis, situated on the opposite riverbank of the Tiber; inside, superlative materials such as Loro Piana fabrics and rare Calacatta marble conjure a calm, warmly luxurious ambience. Every one of the 24 rooms and suites features floor-to-ceiling windows, dark boiserie on the walls, chic brass accents – from the bathroom fixtures to Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance wireless speakers – and large format modern artworks.

Dining in style

Serving curated cocktails, fine wines and Italian and international cuisine, accompanied by special live music events and DJ sets, the vibrant six- and seventh-floor Alto rooftop bar commands sweeping views of Rome’s historic cityscape. From a fifth-floor vantage point, sophisticated Italian restaurant Oliva serves a menu of reinterpreted Roman and regional classics in its in- and outdoor dining spaces.

Below street level, a subterranean spa is due to open in September, featuring an indoor pool and wellness area offering two treatment rooms for massages and beauty treatments exclusively for The First Roma guests.

With the opening of The Pavilions Rome, The First Musica, The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts now has a total of 11 owned or managed hotels and resorts in operation across Asia and Europe, with a further two in the pipeline.
