Having already won travel awards for its hotel in the Middle East — Palais Namaskar Marrakech — the Oetker Collection is expanding its portfolio with two new luxury hotels in two bustling cities: New York and São Paulo.

"With these two new properties we continue to carefully expand Oetker Collection portfolio whilst remaining truthful to our promise — not to just open new hotels, but to create true masterpieces," said Frank Marrenbach, CEO Oetker Collection. "Guests will experience the levels of the Oetker Collection's quality and service to which they are accustomed and can trust that we will offer them a very special sense of place in both destinations."

Opening in 2017, the Palácio Tangará, will be located in the economic capital of Brazil and offers 141 spacious guestrooms — including 55 suites — all with beautiful views overlooking the iconic Burle Marx Park. The bespoke interior design has been entrusted to leading Brazilian interior designers William Simonato and Patricia Anastassiadis. Additional amenities include outdoor terraces as well as a fitness centre and spa that features a private garden and indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

The New York masterpiece meanwhile is set to open it doors in the spring of 2018. Minutes from Central Park, the hotel is in close proximity to the city's best boutiques and museums. Located above the hotel, from floors 21 to 43, a total of 115 luxury apartments, which will be sold to highly influential clientele. These apartments are decorated by world famous designer Robert Stern and will be serviced by the Oetker Collection as well.

In the Middle East, the Oetker Collection boasts the majestic Palais Namaskar Marrakech, which, since its opening in 2012, has won prestigious awards including 'Best Hotel in Africa' by Prix Villegiature and 'Best Luxury Fitness Spa' in Africa by the World Luxury Spa Awards 2015.
