Rosewood Hong Kong opened its Harbourfront doors earlier this week, with Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon's dynamic cultural heart, as its neighbourhood. This marks Rosewood Hotels & Resorts' 26th international property.
The 65-floor hotel comes with 322 guest rooms and 91 suites, each more appointed and luxurious than the last. For example, Rosewood Hong Kong is home to 18 signature suites, including the 1,000sqm Harbour House and The Garden House, which enjoy wraparound Victoria Harbour views from their private sky terraces on the 57th floor, complete with planted landscaped gardens, sun decks with private lap pools and a dedicated, state-of-the-art private gym.
There are also eight dining concepts within the property, including The Legacy House, a Chinese restaurant that showcases the best of Cantonese cuisine; DarkSide, Rosewood Hong Kong's high-end bar; The Butterfly Room, the hotel's all-day lounge; and Holt's Cafe, a restaurant that serves Cantonese dishes with international influences.
In terms of meetings, Rosewood Hong Kong has 3,200sqm of space, as well as one of Hong Kong's most exclusive private garden venues with a view of the Victoria Harbour. There are also social spaces on the third floor of the hotel, which in turn frames the 1,000sqm Grand Ballroom. Finally, the 1,000sqm Pavilion on the fourth floor is a residential-style event space, which is perfect for private meetings and events.
"With Hong Kong evolving from a business and financial centre to become a true global cultural capital, I wanted to create an iconic property that not only showcases the city's rich history but also reflects its bright future," says Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. "New World Centre was conceived as my grandfather's ultimate gift to Hong Kong, a celebration of its progress, vibrancy and spirit. I hope that Rosewood Hong Kong enhances this legacy and helps fulfil his and my father's vision for the city that they loved. Rosewood Hong Kong sets bold new benchmarks for design, guest experience, cuisine, and culture. Our ambition is to create a new world standard for ultra-luxury hospitality and a focal point of the vibrant Hong Kong lifestyle, reflecting its incredible dynamism, style and diversity."
