Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has added Chengdu to its list of properties in its Asia-Pacific pipeline, which currently includes hotels in Greater China, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

Currently having an opening date of 2023, the Rosewood Chengdu is the group’s fifth planned hotel in Greater China.

The hotel will form part of a mixed-use development in the city’s central business district, occupying the top floors of the 300-metre-tall tower. So far, 180 rooms and suites are planned, with facilities including a Manor Club executive lounge, four restaurants and bars, and a spa, fitness centre and pool. The group’s signature The Pavilion residential-style events space will also feature.

“We selected Rosewood to manage this special property due to its innovative yet sensitive approach and we are confident they will introduce a successful and unique brand of ultra-luxury hospitality to the market,” said Yin Qiu Ping, chairperson of property developer Saiho Group that is developing the mixed-use complex.

The group recently opened its second property in China, the Rosewood Sanya (pictured), joining the Rosewood Beijing in August this year as the group’s two sole properties in Asia.

Despite being headquartered in Hong Kong, the group has a limited presence in Asia-Pacific under its flagship Rosewood brand (the company originated in the Americas). That is set to change over the coming years, with nine new hotels planned for Asia by 2023 – more than any other region.

Along with the new Chengdu property, these also include the hotels in Hong Kong and Guangzhou, both set to open next year.
