Modern design meets rustic Roman charm in the smartly designed Antonello Colonna Resort & Spa. A boutique hideaway just outside Rome, the retreat is surrounded by 50 acres of gorgeous parkland, complete with a garden and farm, paying tribute to its peasant heritage. Here, you’ll find just 12 rooms, so if you’re after a private, more personal experience than those typical of larger hotels, this is the place for you. Each is sleekly designed with luxury contemporary furnishings and flooded with natural light.
A trip into Rome reveals an extraordinary collection of historic attractions, and at the end of the day you can retreat from the city buzz to a restful rural base. The Romans famously knew their way around a relaxation zone, and the hotel lives up to its heritage with a fabulous zen-like spa. Natural treatments, indoor and outdoor pools and a 3,000-square-metre terrace make up some of the perks here. There’s also a gourmet restaurant serving delicious rural Roman cuisine, complimentary valet parking, and a private parking area.
Good to know
Please be aware that children aged 12 and under are not allowed at the hotel, and guests must be aged 16 and above in order to access the spa.
How to Get There
A beautiful and elegant small hotel about 50 minutes drive from Rome. Best feature of hotel really is the staff (reception team is wonderful) and the excellent chef in charge who is producing wonders. The hotel you should know is in a remote location so not a lot of interest to drive to (say similar to tuscany), so the objective should be to relax for 2-3 days tops. The hotel has an outdoor pool at the roof of its structure, an indoor pool (albeit a bit dark and in need of natural light), and a small spa. Rooms are fairly modern and full of light with ceiling to floor glass windows. No gym or fitness room at this facility though. Free parking is provided, Wifi connection especially in rooms is on the poor side. I understood kids below 10 years old are below the minimum age for guests. A final light hearted note to guests from overseas would be this - this hotel is extremely pet friendly - they allow guests to bring their pets into common areas and rooms and the hotel keeps a few around site, so raising that in case that bothers you in anyway (Most of hotel clientele are italians and they didnt seem to mind the dogs barking from one room!). Beautiful place would visit again.
This resort is really perfect in every way. If you like minimal design and quiet chic places with food out of this world then you will find it here.
We spent the weekend there and from the rooms, the spa, the pool and the amazing staff it was just perfect.
Antonello the Chef/Owner is top of his craft and has created a menu Gourmet that is just fenomenale. His attention to detail and amazing taste in every way makes this report top of the list.
We will be going back as soon as possible.
Thanks to all the staff again for their hospitality. See you soon.
Grazie a tutto lo staff.
My husband and I ended a 3-week European vacation by staying one night at Antonello Colonna Resort & Spa. What an experience this place was! We visited during off season; I think there was one other couple at the resort. Our room was spectacular! The views were as if we were looking at pictures. Everything was so modern, but also very cozy. In the spa we had a couples massage, which was great, and then had the spa all to ourselves. It was amazing and much needed after all of our travels. We also did the chef's tasting for dinner. That was the most unique and delicious dining experience we have ever had! We had perfectly paired wines with the several courses that we ate, and were filled to the rim with amazing, amazing food. We were so happy that our room was just down the hall from the dining room because we had a lot to eat and a lot to drink! Breakfast was another beautiful feast! There were so many options and it was just the two of us eating! What an experience! Everyone at the resort was very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend staying here, and don't be like us and stay one night...book two or more nights please! The grounds were beautiful but we didn't get to explore them because we didn't have enough time. We would definitely travel back to Italy just to go here.
Great location, great architecture, great friendly staff, great gastronomy within the hotel; cannot ask for more for comforts in a Mid Century design. Staff are efficient and friendly, hotel spaces are enjoyable to experience, and also surrounding countryside. Dinners are a gastronomic experience, both for the tongue and for the eyes. Owner and chef greets during dinner. Memorable and astounding fresh breakfast too. Spa is great to enjoy. We went for the winter months, and we loved the ambiance. Summer should be another experience.
Stayed for four nights in this great place. Modern minimal architecture in a bucolic landscape is the first thing you see at your arrival. It may look cold from the outside. However once you enter the premises you wil be overwhelmed by how "cosy" modern design can be. The rooms are extremely well conceived with a spacious bathroom and direct access to the garden and pool area. The gastronomic restaurant and the bistrot offer such tasteful and Creative dishes that have made our whole stay unforgettable.!!! we'll be back!!
