Rosewood Guangzhou to Open in 2017
June 10, 2014

Ultra-luxury hotel to crown Guangzhou’s tallest building

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® continues its assertive global expansion with the announcement of Rosewood Guangzhou scheduled to open in 2017, joining upcoming Asia sister properties in Beijing (Summer 2014), Phnom Penh, Phuket, Bali, Bangkok, Jakarta and Sanya.

Rosewood Guangzhou guests will have an eagle’s eye view of the metropolis with the hotel occupying the top 16 floors and podium of the 530-meter (1,738-foot) Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre currently under development. This will be Guangzhou’s tallest building, amongst the 10 highest in the world, and is expected to have the fastest high-speed elevators in the world at 20 meters per second. The ultra-luxury hotel will feature 251 guestrooms at a minimum size of 55 square meters (592 square feet) and 355 Rosewood Residences, 23 of which will be duplex apartments.

The hotel will be located in the heart of Tianhe District’s central business area, near luxury shopping malls and within walking distance of cultural destinations such as Guangdong Museum and the Zaha Hadid-designed Guangzhou Opera House.

Project consultants include New York-based architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates; Toronto-based Yabu Pushelberg creating guestrooms, meeting spaces, restaurants and public areas; Tokyo-based Super Potato crafting the design of the Chinese restaurant and bar; Hong Kong-based Perception directing the design of Rosewood Residences and Bangkok-based P Landscape creating the arrival courtyard and multiple terraces.

Rosewood Guangzhou will offer seven food and beverage venues, including a bistro, bar, lobby lounge and gourmet corner. Open-air dining and entertainment spaces will abound. Of the nine private dining rooms in the Chinese restaurant, three will be free-standing outdoor garden villas, combinable into one space for celebratory events. On the 107th floor, a contemporary, cosmopolitan restaurant and a sky bar with cigar humidor area and fully equipped wine corner and cellar, will incorporate both indoor and outdoor space. The bar will have the distinction of being the highest situated bar in mainland China.

The home-like Manor Club executive lounge will offer exclusive amenities, services, refreshments and surroundings for guests seeking the utmost privilege.

Occupying a total of 2,250 square meters (24,200 square feet), meeting facilities will include The Pavilion, a residential-style function space; a grand ballroom of 970 square meters (10,440 square feet) with capacity for 700 persons; three function rooms; two VIP rooms; one bridal suite; and a Sky Mansion on the 108th floor featuring a show kitchen terrace.

Recreational options will include a two-level Sense® spa with eight spa treatment suites, a health club and indoor pool.

“Rosewood Guangzhou will mark an impressive entry of the brand to this vibrant international commercial and financial hub,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are confident that Rosewood Guangzhou will cleverly express the brand’s A Sense of Place® concept in one of China’s most dynamic and vibrant destinations.”

Is Guangzhou advisable to go on holiday in combination with Hong Kong?

I love the order and planning in Guangzhou's skyline! It is so much better than so many other Chinese skylines, like Shenzhen, for example.

It's like an organic-shaped Central Park surrounded by supertalls.

True. They did a great job here. The observation tower is also perfectly located at the opposite side of the river for perfect views.

It's nice to have such an area in a mostly disordered city.
