Rosewood unveils plans for four new hotels in Asia

Rosewood Hotel Group has signalled the next chapter of its Asian expansion with appointments to manage four key properties.

These include Rosewood Shenzhen, due to open in 2022, Rosewood Hermana Mayor (2023), New World Jaipur Resort (2023) and Rosewood Shanghai (2024.)

“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, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. 

“China remains a priority and our entry into Shanghai and Shenzhen represents an important expansion of our footprint in tier one cities.”

The new Asia hotels join Rosewood deals announced this past year for Chengdu, Yangon, Antigua and Houston, recent openings in Phnom Penh, Luang Prabang and Baha Mar in the Bahamas, and the re-opening of Rosewood Bermuda following a renovation.

Rosewood Shanghai, owned by Hopson Commercial Property Management Company, will feature dramatic views from the top floors a new skyscraper in Suzhou Creek, Jing’an district, one of the most exciting and dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. 

Surrounded by historic Art Deco buildings and contemporary architecture, amid vibrant art, retail and dining scenes, Rosewood Shanghai will also be the centrepiece 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) and offer stunning views of the Puxi and Pudong skylines, with easy access to the famous Bund promenade, Nanjing Road commercial area and People’s Square.

Rosewood was appointed to manage the landmark Shenzhen property by China Resources Land, the flagship subsidiary of China Resources Group. 

Rosewood Shenzhen will be part of a new mixed-use development project offering prime office and luxury retail spaces, as well as the hotel and serviced apartments.

The hotel will have 300 guestrooms and 50 Rosewood Residences, strategically situated in the thriving Pearl River Delta megapolis at the intersection of Nanshan, Futian, and Baoan Districts.

Rosewood Hermana Mayor will be an ultra-luxury resort and the brand’s first entry in the Philippines, located on a pristine private island just ten kilometres from the mainland.


AquaTerra Hotels and Resorts Development Corporation appointed Rosewood to manage the property. 

Rosewood Hermana Mayor will feature 128 villa accommodations and additional Rosewood Residences for private ownership all boasting spectacular sea views and open vistas of the lush tropical forest and immaculate white sand beach. 

Sustainability will lie at the heart of Rosewood Hermana Mayor with initiatives in clean technology, renewable energy and conservation touching all aspects of the resort.

Rosewood Hermana Mayor and Rosewood Shanghai will also be home to Asaya, Rosewood’s innovative, integrative wellness concept. 

New World Jaipur Resort will be the brand and group’s first step into the Indian subcontinent. 

Owned by Keemaya Resorts & Spas, New World Jaipur Resort will be the first all-villa luxury resort in the city, featuring 181 spacious villas and extensive leisure and event facilities.
