Patrizia Pozzi and Efisio Onali designed the resort landscape and architectural concept, while Patricia Urquiola has been appointed to the interior design.

Set to open in 2024, the fully redeveloped resort by Rocco Forte Hotels will also offer its guests a state-of-the-art spa and the choice of three restaurants as well as a panoramic rooftop bar and meeting and event space.
