Dorchester Collection's Hotel Eden Rome is celebrating its 130th anniversary. To celebrate this moment in the hotel's history with guests, Hotel Eden has launched a series of three experiences available from now until the end of the year, including a luxury spa treatment, a signature cocktail and a traditional Roman dish.
The celebratory offerings are as follows:
Il Giardino dell'Eden
Inspired by Italian author Gabriele D’Annunzio’s 1889 novel “Il Paciere,” the Eden Spa has created a pampering ritual in collaboration with Mei. Guests will experience a 130-minute sensory journey with fig fragrance and essential rose and jasmine oils, a steam bath, candle massage and a moisturizing facial. Additionally, guests will be treated to a complimentary cocktail and canapés.
In the 1960s, Silvio Favot, the former bar manager of the Hotel Eden, created a new recipe for King Constantine II of Greece, titled the “Royal Eden.” For a long time, the ingredients remained secret, but today Il Giardino Bar offers this celebratory cocktail made according to the original recipe based on vodka, dry vermouth, Campari, tonic water and drops of orange bitter.
Octopus and Celery
After searching the hotel’s historic menus for culinary inspiration, executive chef, Fabio Ciervo, rediscovered the century-old octopus and celery recipe. Today, Ciervo serves the traditional Roman dish in a contemporary version at the Michelin-starred La Terrazza restaurant.
