Hotel Amigo Offers René Magritte Package

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

The Rocco Forte Collection’s Hotel Amigo, located in the heart of Brussels , is celebrating the new René Magritte Museum with a Magritte Museum package. The museum, set to open in June, will include 170 works by Magritte, who was born in Belgium in 1898 and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels .

The influence of René Magritte’s work has infiltrated several design aspects at the five-star Hotel Amigo. In remodeling the interior, Director of Design Olga Polizzi used copies of Magritte’s paintings in all the rooms as well as Magritte-inspired decorative apples and pears as whimsical accessories. The Magritte Suite, named in his honor, features an elegant series of rooms on the third floor with views overlooking the Grand Place.

As part of the package, guests will receive:
Tickets to the museum
A copy of the hardback exhibition book
A special edition box of Wittamer chocolates with a Magritte theme
A customized Magritte-Amigo umbrella
A welcome cocktail in the Amigo Bar
One night in a luxurious room for two people
A buffet breakfast with homemade pastries and freshly baked Belgian waffles
Hotel Amigo’s Magritte Package starts from $389 (€293) per room, per night (based on a two person occupancy)

The Amigo’s fine dining restaurant, Ristorante Bocconi, is also presenting a dinner menu appropriately entitled “This is not a menu,” in homage to Magritte’s famous image of a pipe with the enigmatic caption “This is not a pipe.” The menu features three starters, main courses and desserts, prepared to a Magritte theme by award-winning chef Vincenzo Regine, and is offered to anyone booking the Magritte package at the special price of $133 (€100) for two people. Extra nights, room upgrades and limousine airport transfers are also available on request.
