Rosewood Beijing eyes 2013 opening as first China property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts
23 July 2012
The 279-room Rosewood Beijing is slated to open Summer 2013 as the first China property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts
. The hotel will be located in the central business Chaoyang District, opposite the iconic CCTV Tower.
Designed by Melbourne-based Bar Studio, the property will represent a number of firsts for both Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and Beijing.
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. Bangkok-based P Landscape will oversee the landscaping in this urban hotel.
With their residential-style layouts and floorplans, guestrooms will be designed to evoke what was described as “sensations of luxury apartment living”, and, at 538 square feet (50 square meters), these will be among the largest in the city. The wide proportion of the rooms will allow maximum window aspect, enhanced by window seats. Natural finishes and textural overlays, spacious bathrooms and walk-in closets, and non-traditional, residential components and accessories with subtle Oriental overtones, will complete the homelike surroundings.
