Dream Hotel Group has announced plans to launch its luxury The Chatwal brand in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2020. The Chatwal San Miguel will have 44 freestanding villas and 125 branded residences on a cliffside location at The Vines in San Miguel de Allende. The property will have a view over the Laja River Valley and the UNESCO World Heritage church steeples of the city.
The new development will be helmed by the CallisonRTKL architecture, planning and design firm, and it will be set among 200 acres of French-imported vineyards. Other amenities will include a polo club with spa and fitness facilities and a farm-to-table culinary program.
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 a 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.
The move comes on the heels of Dream Hotel Group’s expansion into Latin America, with plans to develop three other hotels: Unscripted Tulum, Unscripted Belize and Dream Belize. The Chatwal, Dream’s luxury brand, aims to offer bespoke experiences and refined service in a number of locations worldwide.
All told Dream Hotel Group reports it 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.
