Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® ultra-luxury brand in Asia. The 283-room hotel, located at the core of Beijing’s Central Business District (CBD) of Chaoyang, opposite the iconic CCTV Tower, is a true reflection of Beijing, a city where ancient meets modern.
A Sense of Place® in Beijing
Rosewood Beijing brings to Asia the collection’s A Sense of Place® philosophy which was interpreted by the hotel’s designer, Stewart Robertson of BARstudio. The guest experience subliminally mirrors the ageless Chinese concept of journey and welcome: travellers arriving at imposing city gates and passing through fine gardens, engaging with hospitable hosts, before finally, as though symbolically ascending through a classic Chinese mountainscape, arriving at a private, relaxing retreat.
Contemporary, Timeless Art
Guests enter via a soaring, three-storey-high lobby featuring striking art and calligraphy inspired by Chinese poet Bei Dao’s Rose of Time. The artwork throughout the hotel – from ink-brush painting to photography, mixed-media to sculpture – is a reminder that Beijing is the artistic centre of China.
Residential Styled Guestrooms
Guestrooms, each measuring at least 538 square feet (50 square metres), are amongst the largest in the city. Soft-touch bed linens, marble-tiled bathrooms with bespoke bath products, fine furnishings with subtle colour palettes and gentle mood lighting all contribute to the serene residential feel. This is complemented by carefully selected art pieces and books on Chinese art, architecture and customs, echoing the brand’s signature A Sense of Place®.
Culinary innovation is a hallmark of Rosewood Beijing, with six sophisticated restaurants and lounges presenting cuisines from across China and around the world. The House of Dynasties evokes the exquisite dining experience once reserved for Beijing’s emperors, including luxurious private dining suites. Inspired by a rustic Chinese village, Country Kitchen specialises in Northern Chinese comfort fare. RED BOWL stylish hot pot restaurant elevates the authentic cuisine from its humble origins. Bistrot B, with the adjoining Bistrot B Lounge • Bar, is an international bistro with interactive kitchens under the charge of Chef Jarrod Verbiak, a protégé of renowned chef Daniel Boulud. MEI comprises three stylish bars: a cocktail bar, wine bar and whiskey bar, with live musicians, resident DJs, and an outdoor terrace overlooking the Beijing skyline.
Recreation and Retreats
Rosewood’s Sense® spa brand, based on the principles of purity and authenticity, also makes its debut in Asia with a special feature – five spa suites designed for overnight stays. The conservatory-like, glass-domed indoor swimming pool, a first amongst Beijing luxury hotels, with its relaxation deck and lush foliage is an equally striking retreat. The property’s exclusive Manor Club, provides an elevated level of personalisation and luxury for guests staying in hotel suites. Complete with library, pool table and fireplace, serving a menu of cocktails and light dishes, the homey indoor/outdoor lounge is also distinguished by 24-hour butler and concierge service.
Stunning Gathering Spaces
Rosewood Beijing’s central location makes it the perfect venue for both grand corporate events and intimate soirées, with 36,060 square feet (3,350 square metres) of venue space. A light-filled, three-storey-high pre-function space adjoins a pillar-less ballroom of 7,860 square feet (730 square metres.) It is the first luxury hotel ballroom in Beijing to feature a connected outdoor garden for weddings and other special occasions. In another first for Beijing, the residential-style Pavilion annex offers two combinable areas for events in the style of an elegant private home.
