Rosewood’s opening in Hong Kong marks the evolution of another meaningful historic legacy. The site is the former Holt’s Wharf, dating back to 1910, which subsequently became New World Centre, a lifestyle magnet for the city in the 1980s.
A vertical estate
The Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed, 65-storey exterior pays homage to the city’s impressive verticality. Renowned hospitality designer Tony Chi has conceived the hotel as a “vertical estate”, which incorporates significant green spaces and outdoor areas throughout.
Masterful and important art throughout the property includes works by internationally acclaimed artists Henry Moore, Damien Hirst and Bharti Kerr, as well as China’s Wang Keping and homegrown Hong Kong artist Wilson Shieh.
More than 80% of Rosewood Hong Kong’s rooms boast standout harbour vistas, with the remainder featuring verdant Kowloon Peak views overlooking Lion Rock and the mountains. Generous “salons” on each guestroom floor from the 24th level up feature carefully selected objects that reflect Hong Kong’s richly layered past.
Generous space and residential luxury are the hallmarks of Rosewood’s 322 light-filled guestrooms, which start at 53 square metres and include the Grand Harbourview Rooms, boasting panoramic views of Hong Kong Island. Elevated homely comforts include curated interior details, considered amenities, generous marble bathrooms with a freestanding soaking bath, separate vanities and twin showers, as well as spacious walk-in closets.
Distinguished suite stays
Rosewood Hong Kong is home to the highest number of suites of any Hong Kong luxury hotel and also some of the largest. The 91 suites start from 92 square metres, offering guests exclusive services including access to Rosewood’s Manor Club executive lounge, personal butler service, monogrammed pillowcases and robes and personalised amenities. On each floor, the 123-square-metre Grand Harbour Corner Suites offer glittering panoramic harbour views from every vantage point.
In addition, Rosewood Hong Kong features 18 of the most outstanding signature suites in the metropolis, each with its own unique character. The crowning jewel among them, the 1,000-square-metre Harbour House boasts spectacular views from private sky terraces on the 57th level. Enhancing the lavish interiors, a garden oasis features harbour-view sun decks and private lap pools. Located on the same floor, the Harbour House and Garden House can be combined, offering an entirely private five-bedroom retreat complete with state-of-the-art private gym.
Extended stays will be catered to by 186 exclusive Rosewood Residences, set to launch this Spring.
With its prime position on the 40th floor affording Victoria Harbour views and multiple outdoor terraces, Rosewood’s signature executive lounge concept, the Manor Club, extends a sense of residential refinement to suite stays. The Manor Club offers 24-hour, all-encompassing personalised service as well as a host of auxiliary amenities and exclusive spaces.
Each of Rosewood Hong Kong’s eight dining concepts possesses a distinctive character and showcases creativity and a contemporary interpretation of accessible gastronomy and refined beverage craft.
In addition to Rosewood Hong Kong’s outdoor infinity pool and state-of-the-art fitness centre overlooking the harbour, the property will host the first urban outpost of Asaya, Rosewood’s signature integrative wellness offering, in Autumn 2019. Set over two dedicated floors, Asaya will revolve around specific individual wellness goals supported by comprehensive programming.
