Rosewood Hangzhou is slated to open in 2025. Located in Wangjiang New City, an emerging hub of innovation, technology and financial services in the heart of Hangzhou, the new build property will be the brand’s ninth hotel in Greater China and its seventeenth in Asia.
“We are thrilled to further our presence in China and bring a new level of luxury hospitality to one of its most alluring cities with the addition of Rosewood Hangzhou,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Hangzhou is a prosperous and dynamic city which offers serene natural wonders and rich culture for artistic exploration, as well as a setting for the development of new ideas in business and technology, making it well suited for both leisure and business travelers. The Wangjiang New City development is an exceptional reflection of Hangzhou’s horizons and Rosewood is excited to be a part of the city’s continued growth.”
Spread over close to eight million square feet, the Wangjiang New City development will include a K11 Art Mall, office buildings and workspaces, luxury residences and cultural attractions as well as the 140-key hotel.
Architecture of the project will be led by Büro Ole Scheeren, with interiors by Shanghai-based Neri&Hu. Büro Ole Scheeren is a seasoned expert in environmentally sensitive architecture projects. In line with Rosewood’s commitment to environmental preservation and protection, the property is being designed for both LEED and WELL certification, following the optimal framework for engineering a holistic green building with maximum sustainability features and benefits while also including architectural and operational elements that aim to advance human health and wellness.
When it opens, the property will offer:
- 140 guestrooms, including 17 suites;
- four new dining outlets, including an all-day bistro, a Chinese restaurant and a specialty bar;
- a new culinary-retail hybrid concept combining the offerings of a flower shop, living room lounge and patisserie;
