Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has announced a future hotel project in Shanghai that will open near the turn of the next decade. The Rosewood Shanghai will be part of a new mixed-use development built in the city’s Jing’An District and Suhewan area.
Occupying the top floors of the site’s landmark building, which will be one of the tallest complexes in the city’s Puxi district at 320 metres, the hotel will deliver unique design conceived to showcase its expansive views of the metropolis.
“As we continue to grow the brand throughout Asia and specifically mainland China, Shanghai has long been a priority destination in which to plant the Rosewood flag,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “The country’s largest city and economic hub, Shanghai embodies several of our key brand values – innovation, creativity and originality. We are thrilled to bring a new standard of luxury to the region and thank our partners at Lonsen Land Group for the opportunity they’ve given us to do so.”
Two years ago, the luxury hospitality company flagged a 220-room Shanghai hotel addition in partnership with Hopson Commercial Property in the centrally located Suhe Creek region. That skyscraper was expected to open in 2024, however, the property appears to now be off the radar.
Rosewood Shanghai will offer 200 guestrooms and suites, five food and beverage establishments and Asaya, and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ wellness concept.
The ground will be broken on Rosewood Shanghai in 2022, with an envisioned opening in 2028.
Rosewood Shanghai will join Rosewood’s collection of city and resort properties in Greater China, which currently include Rosewood Hong Kong, Rosewood Beijing, Rosewood Sanya and Rosewood Guangzhou. Other projects in development in the region include Rosewood Chengdu and Rosewood Ningbo, both set to open in 2023, along with Rosewood Shenzhen and Rosewood Taipei, which are planned to open in 2024.
