A veritable 'Mansion in the Sky', the second urban outpost for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in mainland China opens as the tallest 5-star hotel in the world and the most breathtaking address in the Greater Bay Area.
Offering a differentiated, stylish hotel experience in mainland China, Rosewood Guangzhou opens today in the heart of Guangzhou’s cosmopolitan Tianhe District. Located on the top 39 floors of the 108-story CTF Finance Centre, the 7th tallest building in the world, the property has become an instant icon and a fitting symbol of Guangzhou’s ascent as an international economic hub and the Greater Bay Area’s emergence as a global economic powerhouse. Soaring to 530-meters at its highest point, Rosewood Guangzhou also earns the singular status as the world’s tallest 5-star hotel.
Since its early days as a major port on the Maritime Silk Road and a hub of foreign trade, Guangzhou has always been ahead of its time. Reflecting the city’s industrious history of innovation, Rosewood Guangzhou fuses together bold architecture, elegant design, natural scenery and boundary-pushing artwork for an elevated experience in the southern Chinese metropolis.
The inspiring and novel experience on offer at Rosewood Guangzhou is immediately conveyed upon arrival where the soaring 5-metre-high lobby provides a grand yet intimate welcome with tastefully designed bronze screens, lacquered red accents and a mesmerizing art installation giving guests a taste of the stylish and contemporary experience that awaits them upon further exploration. This ambience is the result of Toronto-based design firm Yabu Pushelberg’s design inspiration combined with Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® guiding principle which articulates stories of Guangzhou through the spaces and décor, while keeping the needs of discerning global travelers top of mind.
Within this sky-high urban oasis, guests will discover one of China’s most complete and contemporary hotel experiences: a stylish and artistic design aesthetic combined with a modern and residential-inspired approach pervades throughout the entire hotel. In addition to the 251 supremely stylish and well-appointed guest rooms and suites, the property showcases Guangzhou’s most fashionable and refined serviced apartments as well as a wide variety of innovative dining experiences – destined to create Guangzhou’s most exciting culinary destination.
The hotel is also home to the region’s largest spa and fitness facility spread over two dedicated floors and one of the most comprehensive, diverse and innovative collections of venues for weddings, celebrations and corporate events – all set in a convenient location that’s within easy walking distance of many of the city’s most important cultural and commercial points of interest.
“As one of the fastest growing cities in mainland China, Guangzhou has been – and will continue to be – a major contributor to economic growth. The city is well on its way becoming a global megacity with increasing international influence, as the country’s vision for the Greater Bay Area comes to fruition, and we are thrilled to open Rosewood Guangzhou during this ambitious ascent,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer, Rosewood Hotel Group.
“Rosewood Guangzhou is our second urban outpost for the Rosewood brand in mainland China and we look forward to the property offering a differentiated vision for a modern urban lifestyle in the country. Building on the momentum set in motion by Rosewood Beijing, Rosewood Sanya and Rosewood Hong Kong, as our fourth property in the Greater China region, we look forward to the property setting new benchmarks for style and sophistication. Excitingly, alongside the newly-opened Rosewood Hong Kong, the Rosewood brand will now be able to offer a distinguished, modern and inspired hotel experience at both ends of the Greater Bay Area.”
