Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is continuing its strategic growth in China with the announcement of Rosewood Ningbo, set to open in 2024.
This latest project adds to Rosewood’s growing pipeline in China’s megacities, including Guangzhou, Shanghai, Chengdu and Shenzhen, further expanding the brand’s established presence in Beijing, Sanya and the recently opened Rosewood Hong Kong.
The hotel will feature Sense, A Rosewood Spa, designed as an urban haven to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city, on the 55th floor. An indoor pool and a fitness centre will complete the wellness offerings.
Rosewood Ningbo will be the main anchor of the integrated property complex Ningbo New World Plaza, a CNY15 billion worth project encompassing 100,000 square meters, in the city’s central business district of Sanjiangkou (Three Rivers Junction), owned by New World China Land. Developed in three phases, Ningbo New World Plaza will comprise Rosewood Ningbo, the latest K11 Art Mall, K11 Atelier offices, high-end residences and the first art park in the city.
The area is designed to be a new green landmark for the city with Ningbo New World Plaza designed as an eco-friendly environment with key sustainable concepts, including a bio-retention pond, a rain-water garden, permeable pavements and ecological rooftops.
Rosewood Ningbo will occupy levels 43-56 of a mixed-use high-rise tower. The hotel’s 185 guestrooms and 15 suites will feature views of the urban landscape.
“Ningbo is a vibrant city attracting a growing wave of young entrepreneurs and technology companies and is at the heart of innovation in China,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Combined with its rich history, the destination makes an ideal choice for Rosewood’s growing presence in China. Rosewood Ningbo will join its sister properties across China to create a rich collection of distinct and unique properties for our affluential explorer guests to access the rich diversity of China’s local cultures.”
Rosewood Ningbo will join a growing collection of Rosewood properties in Asia, including Rosewood Phnom Penh, Rosewood Bangkok, Rosewood Phuket and Rosewood Luang Prabang. Upcoming locations include Taipei, Yangon, and Hermana Mayor (Philippines.)
