DALLAS--The 279-room Rosewood Beijing will open Summer 2013 as the first China property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts(R), spearheading its ambitious Asia expansion plans.
The hotel will be located in the central business Chaoyang District, opposite the iconic CCTV Tower. Designed by Melbourne-based Bar Studio, the ultra-luxury property will represent a number of firsts for both Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and Beijing.
"Guests will see A Sense of Place(R) -- our guiding philosophy to reflect and celebrate each location's culture, history and geography -- exquisitely expressed in Rosewood Beijing," says Radha Arora, president, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.
The hotel will offer more landscaped outdoor space than any other Beijing luxury hotel, with terraces, gardens and balconies integrated into the design of many of the restaurants, spa, recreational facilities, meeting and function areas.
With their residential-style layouts and floorplans, guestrooms will be designed to evoke sensations of luxury apartment living and, at 538 square feet (50 square meters), they will be amongst the largest in the city.
Seven restaurants and lounges will serve authentic international cuisines amidst innovative design style. For example, the Chinese restaurant will feature a casual and contemporary lower floor restaurant as well as nine private dining suites on the floor above.
The Rosewood Sense(R) spa brand, featuring treatments reflecting the location's cultural and natural environment, will make its first appearance in Asia and be accompanied by another Rosewood first: five spa suites designed for overnight stays. (Antara/tw)
