“This is an extraordinary opportunity for the Le Guanahani team to join Rosewood’s global network and stand alongside sister properties such as the iconic Hotel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris, Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos and The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, in New York City and the soon to be open Rosewood Sao Paulo in Brasil,” said hotel managing director Martein van Wagenberg.
“This marks for me the return to the Rosewood family, having held similar positions at Rosewood Little Dix Bay and Las Ventanas al Paraiso. We are delighted to launch a new chapter of Le Guanahani’s storied legacy with Rosewood by our side.”
