Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has sought to continue its growth in China with the announcement of Rosewood Hangzhou opening in 2025.
Located in Wangjiang New City, an emerging hub of innovation, technology and financial services in the heart of Hangzhou, the new build luxury hotel will occupy real estate within a mixed-use development project.
“We are thrilled to further our presence in China and bring a new level of luxury hospitality to one of its most alluring cities with the addition of Rosewood Hangzhou,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive of Rosewood Hotel Group.
“Hangzhou is a prosperous and dynamic city which offers serene natural wonders and rich culture for artistic exploration, as well as a setting for the development of new ideas in business and technology, making it well suited for both leisure and business travellers.
“The Wangjiang New City development is an exceptional reflection of Hangzhou’s horizons and Rosewood is excited to be a part of the city’s continued growth.”
Spanning 740,000 square meters, the Wangjiang New City development will include a K11 Art Mall, office buildings and workspaces, luxury residences and cultural attractions, in addition to Rosewood Hangzhou.
The hotel itself will sit in a standalone building totalling 25,000 square meters over 16 storeys.
The area will also be connected to two subway lines, allowing for easy travel to other parts of the city.
Upon opening, Rosewood Hangzhou will offer 140 rooms, including 17 suites.
Rosewood Hangzhou adds to Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ impressive Asian footprint as the eighth property in development in the region, with a pipeline that includes projects in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hoi An.
The hotel joins nine existing properties in Asia, including the city landmarks of Rosewood Beijing, Rosewood Guangzhou and Rosewood Hong Kong.

Ruby Hotels has launched its third Dusseldorf hotel, in Kasernenstraße.
Ruby Luna opens as a 206-room hotel, joining the two existing Düsseldorf properties, and will be the hotel group’s Dusseldorf flagship property.
The property is set in the former Commerzbank building, recognised as one of Germany’s most significant high-rise buildings located between Königsallee with its many boutiques, and Carlsplatz with its bustling market stalls.
Just a short walk away is Dusseldorf’s old town, the Schloßturm, the Tonhalle, and the Rhine promenade, as well as the futuristic Benrather Straße train station offering excellent transport links and easy access to the airport.
Inspired by the 1950s and 1960s optimism, which saw man’s adventure into space, an outer space theme runs throughout the hotel, with countless interior elements that bring the Space Age to life.
Rockets and space capsules can be found at every turn; a ‘floating’ open ground floor creates a unique sense of space in the public areas; a former concrete ramp to the basement is decked out with glass panels to offer a bird’s eye view of the ground below.
Ruby Luna’s bar, the longest bar of all Ruby properties, features gold-tinted glass panes, terrazzo and flagstone tiles that glamorously contrast with the exposed concrete of the public areas.
Konstantin Olbrecht will take over management of Ruby Luna, and said: “Ruby Luna is architecturally unique, and our interior design team has contributed with a lot of charm to ensure that every guest will enjoy a wonderful stay.
“Düsseldorf is and will continue to be an important business location.
“We are confident that our business will pick up in a timely manner.”

Tourism insiders in the Algarve have welcomed inclusion on the ‘green list’ of tourism destinations published by England on Friday.
The decision means holidaymakers will be able to visit the region without the need for quarantine on their return.
Travellers will, however, still need to take a PCR test for Covid-19 before departure and on their return.
João Fernandes, president of Algarve Tourism, said: “We are obviously delighted with the news that Portugal will be on the green list, and are very ready to welcome British visitors to the Algarve.
“Our amazing beaches, world-class golf courses, restaurants, bars and water parks are all open from mid-May and the sun is shining.
“With 44 per cent of our international visitors coming from the UK in a typical year, the absence of British visitors was noticed and missed last summer.”
He added: “Flights are resuming from mid-May, so hotels are prepared and offering some great packages.
“There is plenty of availability at the moment.”
The Algarve is considered Europe’s Leading Beach Destination by voters at the World Travel Awards.
Following the government update, Ryanair has announced new flights to Portugal, with over 175,000 extra seats added from May 17th.
UK holidaymakers will now have even greater choice when flying to the Algarve, Lisbon and Porto this summer.
Ryanair director of marketing, Dara Brady, said: “With quarantine-free travel now permitted to the likes of Faro, Lisbon and Porto, even more flights have been added to our UK schedule in order to meet the demand from our customers.
“The UK summer 2021 schedule comprises 480 destinations, having recently launched 26 new routes and with more to be added as restrictions relax throughout Europe over the summer months.”
