What was once the early 20th century Roman villa that bordered the Tiber River and the home of the Malaspina family (who hosted countless high-class soi rées) is now a luxurious hotel named Palazzo Dama. Opened this year in January as a 30 room hotel, the luxury resort has become an opulent retreat within it’s own city, a place where historical marble mosaics and original art-nouveau doors beautifully complement the Loro Piana fabrics and spectacular mid-century Italian furnishings. Even architect Antonio Girardi culled many exotic objects from across the globe to add a little panache or liveliness to the hotel, all the way from antique Persian carpets rolled-out in the restaurant to a shower of crystal chandeliers (derived from New York’s Plaza Hotel) in the lounge. Enjoy life in the hotel like the Malaspina family, take your time and have a relaxing afternoon by the property’s swimming pool, then take it easy with a light excursion through it’s blossoming flower gardens and finish the day off watching the sun set atop the rooftop terrace.
