Villa Agrippina Gran Melia, part of the Melia Hotels International group, has announced the opening of a stunning new private villa and a plethora of private suites in central Rome this summer.

Nestled within the heart of the Italian capital and set in expansive landscaped grounds with tranquil pools, the 110 room five-starred hotel is a spectacular urban retreat with unprecedented green space for a city-centre hotel. The new Private Pool Suite, the latest and most prestigious residence at the property, is a luxurious two-bedroom suite boasting 200 square metres of outdoor space in addition to a 32 square metre counter-current swimming pool, offering valuable privacy and space for guests.

The Suite can also be connected to a neighbouring Supreme Room with its own private garden and hydro jet plunge pool, accommodating groups of up to eight. Guests staying in the new villa will enjoy the utmost seclusion and privacy with the option to enjoy breakfast on their private patio, as well as hire a private chef for the ultimate al-fresco dining experiences.

Guests of Villa Agrippina’s RedLevel Suites can will receive ultra-personalised service alongside large, private gardens, pools and hot tubs, boasting the most spacious accommodations at the property. From the Vatican Suite with impressive views of St. Peter’s Basilica from its 125 square metre private terrace to the Emperor Nero Suite with private gym, jacuzzi and panoramic terrace, Villa Agrippina guarantees an extraordinary and luxurious stay for all guests. 

Housed in a former palace, Villa Agrippina is a unique refuge spanning 9,000 square metres filled with history, luxury and sophistication reminiscent of the great beauty of the Eternal City.  A stone’s throw from The Vatican and walking distance from St Peter’s Square and Villa Borghese gardens, Villa Agrippina boasts one of the most desirable locations in Rome and provides a calming oasis amidst the narrow, cobbled streets. The building, steeped in history, was built in 1900 before being completely reimagined in 2012 with a cool, contemporary style. The warm pink hues blend in with the rich history of the surrounding area, whilst fresh yet minimalist interiors make Villa Agrippina the perfect destination for the modern traveller.

Non-residents can now enjoy the outdoor pool, complete with sunshades, beds and towels in the beautiful gardens of the hotel. Serving light bites throughout the day, guests and locals can experience the epitome of a life well lived basking in the sunshine at the Gala Pool Bar & Restaurant, one of three gastronomic outlets at the resort. With a focus on sustainable and locally sourced products across all restaurants, Villa Agrippina serves some of the most authentic and traditional dishes that reflect the Mediterranean culture. 

Villa Agrippina recreates the warmth of Southern Europe through its refined hospitality and personalised service. From private tours of the iconic Roman sites to mixology sessions at the villa or state-of-the-art beauty treatments at the SPA by Clarins, guests will be able to experience the signature spirit of Spanish hospitality and heritage, for which Gran Meliá is known worldwide.
