Rosewood’s Clearwater Bay a ‘private, sophisticated sanctuary’

by Jane Kitchen | 24 Aug 2015

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will open a new 116-villa resort on Hainan Island, China in 2018. Rosewood Clearwater Bay Hainan will feature the brand’s signature Sense spa with six treatment rooms and balconies overlooking private gardens.

Designed by Bangkok-based architectural firm Blink Design Group, Rosewood Clearwater Bay will also have exclusive access to a 1.6km (5,250ft) beach, and the design will incorporate water features, indigenous timber and stone, and unobstructed sightlines to the South China Sea. The accommodations will all be directly connected to the beach via foliage-shadowed pathways.

The 116 villas will include 95 within low-rise buildings designed to blend harmoniously with the surroundings, as well as private elevators dedicated to two sky villas on each floor. Sky villas feature outdoor terraces and most have private swimming pools.

The 21 standalone beach villas will feature 165sq m (1,776sq ft) interiors, as well as courtyards, gardens, large private swimming pools and high walls for privacy. There will also be 47 villa residences for purchase.

Public spaces and guest rooms are designed by Singapore-based interior design company Jaya & Associates, and Bangkok-based TROP landscape architects are also involved with the project.

“By topography, design and intention, Rosewood Clearwater Bay will be a private and sophisticated sanctuary on the island,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Its concept is timeless yet contemporary, melding strong architecture with breathtaking landscape, offering discreet yet superb service.”

The resort will also include three restaurants, a 320sq m (3,444sq ft) pavilion meeting and event space, a gym, tennis courts, open-air tai chi and yoga deck, recreation centre, lap pool and children’s pool.

This will be Rosewood's second resort on Hainan Island and the fourth in mainland China following Rosewood Beijing's launch in October 2014, plus Rosewood Sanya and Rosewood Guangzhou, both opening in 2017.

Rosewood also recently announced it is partnering with Philippe Starck and Jean Nouvel to transform a landmark Sao Paulo, Brazil hospital into a resort and spa.
