Rosewood’s second urban outpost in mainland China features two-storey spa
BY Jane Kitchen

Located on the top 39 floors of the 108-story CTF Finance Centre, the 251-bedroom hotel has been designed by Yabu Pushelberg as a ‘sky-high urban oasis’.

Located on the top 39 floors of the 108-story CTF Finance Centre, the 251-bedroom hotel has been designed by Yabu Pushelberg as a ‘sky-high urban oasis’.

The Rosewood Guangzhou has opened in the heart of Guangzhou's Tianhe District, complete with a large spa and wellness facility spread over two dedicated floors.

Located on the top 39 floors of the 108-story CTF Finance Centre – designed by American architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox – the 251-bedroom hotel has been designed by Yabu Pushelberg as a ‘sky-high urban oasis’.

At 2,628 square meters, Sense, A Rosewood Spa is set across the 93rd and 94th floors. The sleek and contemporary wellness centre includes a spa, relaxation lounge, yoga studio, fitness center and 25-meter-long indoor pool.

Rosewood Guangzhou's spa unwinds the mind through an environment of soft organic shapes, touch-me textures and tranquil soundscapes. Bespoke journeys showcase the latest skincare innovations, and, the heat and water facilities feature temperature therapy pools, steam rooms and salt rooms that can be enjoyed at leisure before and after treatments.

In addition to the latest Artis range of Technogym equipment, the fitness centre also offers several fitness programs and services to help guests reach their personal goals, such as group classes – including yoga and barre – nutrition consultations, personal training and physiotherapy.

As part of its health and fitness program, Rosewood Guangzhou offers Wellness Club memberships to long-stay guests and local residents. The membership includes access to the spa and fitness centre as well as an exclusive club lounge where members will find a spacious living room area, pantry, healthy meals and a juice bar.

Guangzhou's rich history can be seen and felt throughout the new Rosewood Guangzhou, from the white terracotta façade to a curated collection of Chinese artwork, in addition to subtle design details and use of locally relevant materials and finishes throughout the property.

The design duo of Yabu Pushelberg selected materials and textiles that reference ancient Chinese crafts, such as vermillion-red lacquered doors marking the entrance, traditional silk screens in Patina Living Room, wood-and-bronze etched mirrors in the Grand Ballroom, lanterns by the pool, and tea sets in the rooms.

Guided by sustainable development principles, the CTF Finance Centre features a self-cleaning white terracotta "mullion" system that takes inspiration from ancient Chinese ceramic craftsmanship. The tiles not only shade the building from the sun, thus reducing Rosewood Guangzhou's electricity consumption, but they also have corrosion resistance properties for lasting quality. The property also utilises highly efficient cooling and heat recovery systems to further reduce its carbon emissions.

Rosewood Guangzhou features seven terraces as well as several landscaped lawns and gardens across the hotel that have been designed by Bangkok-based Landscape.

In addition to the hotel's guest rooms and suites, the property will also introduce Rosewood Residences Guangzhou – which feature 355 serviced apartments conceived by Perception, a Hong Kong-based design firm.

"Rosewood Guangzhou is our second urban outpost for the Rosewood brand in mainland China and we look forward to the property offering a differentiated vision for a modern urban lifestyle in the country," said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood. "Building on the momentum set in motion by Rosewood Beijing, Rosewood Sanya and Rosewood Hong Kong, as our fourth property in the Greater China region, we look forward to the property setting new benchmarks for style and sophistication. Excitingly, alongside the newly-opened Rosewood Hong Kong, the Rosewood brand will now be able to offer a distinguished, modern and inspired hotel experience at both ends of the Greater Bay Area."
