| ICONIC HOTEL| Delfina Remi
The entrance to Hotel Principe di Savoia is majestic, an emblem of elegance in the Milanese metropolis. It is located in a huge neoclassical building overlooking Piazza della Repubblica and features 257 luxurious rooms and 44 sophisticated suites. Known for its distinct style and unparalleled hospitality, it is the undisputed choice of the cosmopolitan world. Comfort echoes throughout the nine Principe Suites where architect Francesca Basu drew inspiration from a mix of fashion, art, and architecture, designing spacious living rooms with velvet armchairs and ethno-chic furniture.
The Royal Suite includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms, an entrance hall, and a living room with walnut boiseries and inlaid parquet ooring. The Imperial Suite remodeled by Celeste dell’Anna gives off both classic and contemporary vibes in 4 apartments, with an entrance, spacious living room, bedroom, and walk-in closet; focus is on the bathroom where everything is wrapped in the purity of white Lasa marble. The Presidential Suite features three sumptuous bedrooms, a living room, dining room, and private pool, as well as sophisticated décor and a spectacular view of the city.
“There are places that contain all the elements in their history and tradition to be continually renewed, and for the Principe di Savoia it was enough just knowing how to listen,” say architect Cosimo Sasaniello and interior designer Kate Axelsson of A&I, creators of the renovated events venue.
They drew inspiration from the hotel’s lines and colors, creating continuity of new modern style with classic architecture: neutral and delicate shades creating bright, ephemeral areas. 11 exclusive spaces can be combined upon request, able to accommodate up to 700 people over 700 square meters, and offer great exibility in staging. Holding an event at the Principe di Savoia is sure to be a success. The Salotto lobby lounge is characterized by its contemporary style and impactful design expressed in a monumental painting by Luca Giordano, in addition to a spectacular 48-arm Murano glass chandelier created by Barovier and Toso, as well as the signature of designer Thierry Despont in luminous crystal walls that overlook the bar counter and rich bottle collection in view.
Then continue to taste the culinary delicacies of Chef Alessandro Buffolino and his crew at Ristorante Acanto, and prepare to be delighted with dishes boasting exceptional quality and exquisite taste. Located on the tenth oor of the hotel with a view of the city’s skyline, Club 10 Fitness & Beauty Center is a veritable oasis of wellness for both the mind and body – an urban spa for those who are looking for a luxurious atmosphere with all the amenities, treatments, and most sophisticated products available. Among the services offered, there are two special treatments that provide two hours of pure relaxation.
The facial treatment Skin Regimen is designed to counteract signs of stress and pollution, resulting in a treatment for the skin and mind that is deeply holistic, functional, de-stressing and revitalizing. It uses QiGong – an ancient Chinese discipline – which promotes the release of muscle tension and also the Rolling Roulage – inspired by physiotheraphy techniques – which promotes microcirculation, relaxes the facial muscles, oxygenates, detoxi es, and stimulates collagen production. The Sleep Ritual body treatment is an innovative ritual that is highly effective in relaxing both mind and body by using three senses (smell, sound, and taste) to relieve the mind of worries and bring the body to a state of total relaxation.
TranquillityTM Sound is music speci cally created for this treatment with a slow, regular rhythm. Together with olfactory and auditory stimulus, the reatment also includes a slow, calm, and delicate massage inspired by Ayurvedic medicine, or an Indonesian Sea Malay massage. After your treatment is over, you can enjoy time on a chaise longue on the spacious solarium terrace, and taste fresh fruit juices or smoothies and light snacks. The Remise en Forme program is among the latest additions and comes from collaboration between the Salotto Lobby Lounge and Club 10 Fitness & Beauty Center.
Every day from 12pm to 7pm at the Salotto, a selection of light, tasty dishes paired with detoxifying drinks await: warm salmon steak with sesame, orange, and pomegranate paired with fresh broccoli, spinach, celery, and Golden apple juice or a black rice timbale with baked pumpkin and broccoli crudité paired with hot lime, ginger, and star anise juice. Try a slice of sea bass with cream of leek and saffron paired with pineapple, carrot, and ginger juice, or supreme “jaune” chicken stuffed with cauli ower, cumin, and diced mango paired with beet, pear, and mint juice. Then Club 10 awaits for a specialized Easy Detox program: a 50-minute detoxifying or draining body treatment that will leave you feeling relaxed, healthy, and vibrant.
