Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will be going to Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hermana Mayor (Philippines), while the group will make its entry into India with the New World Jaipur Resort.
“We intend to double the number of Rosewood hotels in the next five years, from our current 24 hotels in 15 countries, with a full one-third of new properties located in Asia,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “China remains a priority and our entry into Shanghai and Shenzhen represents an important expansion of our footprint in Tier 1 cities.”
First up is Rosewood Shanghai, which has a scheduled opening for 2024. The hotel, located on the top floors of a new skyscraper in Suzhou Creek, Jing’an district, will be part of the Hopson One Suhewan development that will include grade-A offices, residences, luxury retail, and spaces for art and culture. The hotel will feature 220 rooms and 83 luxury Rosewood Residences (serviced apartments).
Also in China, Rosewood Shenzhen will open in 2022 with 300 guestrooms and 50 Rosewood Residences. The hotel will be part of a new mixed-use development project in the Pearl River Delta megapolis at the intersection of Nanshan, Futian,and Baoan Districts.
In the Philippines, Rosewood Hermana Mayor will be an ultra-luxury resort on a private island 10km from the mainland. Opening in 2023, Rosewood Hermana Mayor will feature 128 villa accommodations and additional Rosewoood Residences for private ownership. This property will also mark the brand’s first entry into the Philippines.
Come 2023, India will be home to a New World Jaipur Resort, which will be the brand and group’s first step into the Indian subcontinent. Owned by Keemaya Resorts and Spas, New World Jaipur Resort will be the first all-villa luxury resort in the city, featuring 181 villas and extensive leisure and event facilities.
