Dream Hotel Group today announced plans to launch its five-star luxury brand The Chatwal in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 2020. The latest hotel signing with Mexico-based Tamayo Desarrollos represents a major milestone for Dream Hotel Group, positioning the company as international hospitality innovators and leading the way for new growth in the region.
“We are honored to partner with Alejandro Tamayo and his team in bringing The Chatwal brand to San Miguel de Allende,” said Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein, “San Miguel is one of the most creative and culturally significant cities in Mexico and an ideal destination for The Chatwal flag. We’re fortunate to collaborate with visionary developers like Tamayo Desarrollos who share our ambitions to grow and develop our brands in Latin America.”
Located at The Vines in San Miguel de Allende, The Chatwal San Miguel features 44 freestanding villas and 125 branded residences perched on a dramatic cliff overlooking the Laja River Valley and the world renowned UNESCO World Heritage church steeples of San Miguel de Allende, setting a new standard for luxury hospitality in the central highlands.
Conceptualized by renowned architecture, planning and design firm CallisonRTKL, the highly anticipated development is nestled among 200 acres of beautiful French-imported vineyards, a world-class polo club with unrivaled spa and fitness facilities and a carefully curated, farm-to-table culinary program using only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients for a truly epicurean experience.
“We are very excited to announce The Chatwal San Miguel de Allende as the centerpiece of this incredible development,” said Alejandro Tamayo Ibarra, CEO of Tamayo Desarrollos, S.A. de C.V. “Together, we look forward to creating a new type of luxury experience for Mexico and Latin America.”
“We are thrilled to bring our luxury brand to the city of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico,” said Christian Glauser-Benz, Vice President of Development, Dream Hotel Group. “The Chatwal brand is a perfect fit for this beautiful city and represents everything San Miguel has to offer – rich history and culture, exquisite architecture and design, exceptional gastronomy and a deeply romantic setting designed purely for relaxation.”
A three-hour drive from Mexico City, located in the Bajio region in the far eastern part of the state of Guanajuato in central Mexico, San Miguel de Allende offers year-round spring-like climate, colorful cultural celebrations and creative gastronomy in the most spectacular natural setting. In 2008, the city and nearby sanctuary were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, chosen for its cultural significance, architectural contribution to the Mexican Baroque art and architecture movement, and the role it played in the fight for Mexican independence.
Recently named “World’s Best City”, San Miguel de Allende is undeniably one of Mexico’s biggest draws, attracting thousands of tourists and new residents from abroad every year.
With timeless elegance at its core in architecture, design and details, Chatwal Hotels offer bespoke experiences and refined service in some of the world’s most desired locales. The Chatwal brand represents a seamless mélange of impeccable world-class interiors, serene wellness components, the finest in haute cuisine, elaborate wines, and a deep understanding of local cultures to provide guests with highly personalized and distinguished, five-star, luxury hospitality in new and emerging destinations worldwide.
The signing of The Chatwal San Miguel de Allende comes on the heels of the Dream Hotel Group’s latest announcement to develop three new hotels in Latin America, Unscripted Tulum, Unscripted Belize and Dream Belize, marking a thrilling new chapter for the company.
Dream Hotel Group plans to sign another 50 hotels and resorts worldwide across all its brands – Dream Hotels, Time Hotels, The Chatwal and Unscripted Hotels – over the next five years, continuing to solidify its burgeoning global portfolio.
