Rosewood has opened its first hotel in Asia in Beijing, the 283-room Rosewood Beijing at the core of Beijing’s Central Business District (CBD) of Chaoyang, opposite the iconic CCTV Tower. Guests enter via a soaring, three-storey high lobby featuring striking art and calligraphy inspired by Chinese poet Bei Dao’s Rose of Time. “This hotel was envisioned as an unconventional haven and a distinctively different hotel encounter,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We want to provide sophisticated guests the ease they feel at home, yet also a place where they can create their own journey to experience the authentic and unexpected Beijing.” Guestrooms, each measuring at least 538 square feet, are amongst the largest in the city. Soft-touch bed linens, marble-tiled bathrooms with bespoke bath products, fine furnishings with subtle colour palettes and gentle mood lighting all contribute to a residential feel. Rosewood’s Sense spa brand is also making its debut in Asia with a special feature – five spa suites designed for overnight stays. The conservatory-like, glass-domed indoor swimming pool with relaxation deck and lush foliage is an equally striking retreat. Recreational facilities also include a gym and yoga studio. The property’s exclusive Manor Club, provides an elevated level of personalisation and luxury for guests staying in hotel suites. Complete with library, pool table and fireplace, serving a menu of cocktails and light dishes, the homey indoor/outdoor lounge is also distinguished by 24-hour butler and concierge service. Rosewood Beijing’s central location makes it a perfect venue for both grand corporate events and intimate soirées, with 36,060 square feet of venue space. A light-filled, three-storey-high pre-function space adjoins a pillar-less ballroom of 7,860 square feet. The residential-style Pavilion annex offers two combinable areas for events in the style of an elegant private home. The hotel also features six restaurants and lounges presenting cuisines from across China and around the world.
