Dream Hotel Group has announced plans to launch the first Mexican location for its five-star luxury brand The Chatwal in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2020. Envisioned by CallisonRTKL, a U.S.-based firm responsible for the hotel’s architecture, planning and design, the property will feature 44 freestanding villas and 125 branded residences.

Nestled among 200 acres of French-imported vineyards, The Chatwal San Miguel will also include a polo club, spa and fitness facilities, and a farm-to-table culinary program.

“We’re honored to partner with developer Alejandro Tamayo Ibarra [ceo, Tamayo Desarollos] and his team in bringing The Chatwal brand to San Miguel de Allende,” Dream Hotel Group ceo Jay Stein says. “San Miguel is one of the most creative and culturally significant cities in Mexico and an ideal destination for The Chatwal flag. We’re fortunate to collaborate with visionary developers like Tamayo Desarrollos who share our ambitions to grow and develop our brands in Latin America.”

The signing of The Chatwal San Miguel de Allende comes on the heels of the Dream Hotel’s recent announcement to develop three new properties in Latin America: Unscripted Tulum, Unscripted Belize and Dream Belize. Dream also plans to sign another 50 hotels and resorts worldwide across all its brands—Dream Hotels, Time Hotels, The Chatwal and Unscripted Hotels—over the next five years.
