The Oetker Collection has announced plans to debut in North and South America with two brand-new properties set to open within the next three years.
The five-star luxury hotel collection currently boasts nine properties around the globe but, until now, hadn't ventured into the Americas.
On Monday, the company revealed plans for the 141-room Palacio Tangara in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and a 170-room "New York Masterpiece" in New York's Manhattan borough.
The former is slated to open in the spring of 2017. Since the Palacio Tangara will be constructed within close proximity to Burle Marx Park, guests will have views of the park and its gardens. Of the 141 guestrooms, 55 will be suites.
Amenities will include a ballroom, fitness center and spa as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
In a statement, the Oetker Collection's chief financial officer Timo Gruenert said the Sao Paulo property will "have it all," including a "unique location, exceptional building, creative cuisine and the legendary Brazilian smile."
Meanwhile, the New York property is scheduled to open in the spring of 2018. Located on Madison Avenue, the hotel will offer guests easy access to nearby shops, museums and other popular attractions.
The hotel will be constructed inside the 43-story Sony Tower, featuring more than 100 guestrooms and 60 suites.
In addition to a fitness center, spa and pool, the property's amenities will include a bar, lounge area and gourmet restaurant.
The Oetker Collection will also service 115 luxury apartments currently being developed on the nearly two dozen floors above the hotel by the New Yorker Chetrit Group.
"I am confident that, once Palacio Tangara and our new hotel in New York are up and running, Oetker Collection guests will soon call both properties their new home," the collection's CEO Frank Marrenbach concluded in a statement.
