Natura Bissé spa and neoclassical Hotel Urso Madrid to launch in August 2014
POSTED 23 May 2014 . BY Helen Andrews
The neoclassical five-star Hotel Urso Madrid will open in August 2014 in Madrid, Spain between the neighbourhoods of Chamberi and Chueca.

The owning company, Torimbia, have converted the former Palacio de Mejía Lequerica hotel into the new 78-bedroom and suite Urso Hotel – ten minutes from the main shopping district and 15 minutes from the Prado and Thyssen museums – which includes the first Natura Bissé spa in Madrid – the Urso Spa.

The spa facilities include four treatment rooms – one of which is a couples’ room – a Turkish steam bath, indoor plunge pool, 12m spa pool (39.4ft), relaxation area and signature treatments from Natura Bissé such as the Diamond Life Infusion, Detox Facial Cure and Maxi Firm Body Citric. It is not yet known if the spa will open at the same time as the hotel.

There is also a Technogym included within the Marugal-managed hotel’s premises.

“The building is utterly unique as it occupies a whole block and therefore all rooms are exterior facing,” said managing director Pablo Carrington.

The 19th Century building has been restored by architect Antonio Obrador, who also masterminded the design of the Urso’s sister hotel, Cap Rocat – located in the Catalan Balearic Islands with a third hotel called Torralbenc.

“This project is about incorporating products that better reflect the setting of the hotel, without sacrificing on quality or on the need to create a product with its own personality,” Obrador said.

Artisan carpenters are restoring the 20th Century elevator and decorations on the ground floor of the building will include wallpaper which has been re-created, based on wallpaper found in the palace opposite the hotel.
