Rocco Forte Collection Celebrates European Luxury

Posted: May. 21st, 2009  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Hotels: The Rocco Forte Collection of European luxury hotels has two reasons for luxe-loving travelers to celebrate this month: the official opening of their newest property in Prague, and a great new package at their Brussels outpost. The Augustine, located in Prague's Mal Strana district in the heart of the city's rich cultural center, a short walk from the majestic Prague Castle, the Wallenstein Gardens and the famous Charles Bridge, is the Collection's 12th property. The 101-bedroom hotel was created from a set of seven buildings, many of which have historical significance, including the 13th-century Augustinian St. Thomas Monastery for which it is named.

In Brussels meanwhile the Rocco Forte Collection is celebrating the city's new Ren Magritte Museum with a Magritte Museum package at their five-star Hotel Amigo (above). The museum, set to open in June, will include 170 works by the Surrealist master, who was born in Belgium in 1898 and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. The influence of Magrittes can be seen in many aspects of the Amigo, and Director of Design Olga Polizzi used copies of Magrittes paintings in all the rooms. The Magritte Suite features an elegant series of rooms on the third floor with views overlooking the Grand Place. In addition to tickets to the new museum, a hardcover copy of the exhibition book, and other perks, the Magritte Museum package includes a special dinner at the hotels excellent Ristorante Bocconi.
