HONG KONG—Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will open the brand’s first property here in 2018 in a Victoria Harbour waterfront location at the former New World Centre on Salisbury Rd. in Tsim Sha Tsui. Rosewood Hong Kong will occupy 27 floors of a multi-use tower owned by New World Development Company Limited.
“As one of the world’s great cities, with iconic character and landscape, Hong Kong is a superlative location to open a Rosewood hotel and exquisitely express the brand’s A Sense of Place philosophy,” says Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We aim for this hotel to capture Hong Kong’s grace and dynamism, culture and modernity, while debuting Rosewood’s engaging, intuitive and refined service here in our home city.”
Tony Chi and his New York-based studio, tonychi, will work to illustrate the Rosewood brand’s A Sense of Place concept. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates will blend classic design elements with references to the contemporary surroundings in the architecture of the 398-room hotel.
The property will offer eight dining options; recreational facilities will include a fitness center, swimming pool and Rosewood’s holistic wellness concept; and the Manor Club executive lounge will provide an array of exclusive privileges.
In addition, Rosewood Residences will provide 199 luxury accommodations for longer stays located on the top 19 floors of the tower, some with outdoor terraces. There will also be a dedicated lounge, indoor swimming pool and fitness center along with special services and amenities for residents.
