Rosewood debuts in the heart of London

by Aoife Dowling | 28 Oct 2013

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has launched a new luxury hotel and spa in Holborn, London – marking the groups’ entry into Europe.

Following an extensive renovation to transform the 1914 Edwardian Belle Epoque building, the original architectural features have been restored including the Grade II-listed street frontage and dome, and the grand Pavonazzo marble staircase.

Rosewood London features 262 guestrooms and 44 suites, public areas are filled with artwork and books, and restaurants offer both classic and contemporary British dishes.

The accommodations, event spaces and public areas have been designed by Tony Chi and Associates. Chi designed the suites including the Grand Manor House Wing. Accessed via a private elevator and its own street entrance, it features six bedrooms, a dressing chamber, a library, a dining room and sitting rooms spread over 6,318 sq ft (587sq m) of living space.

Matthias Roeke, managing director, Rosewood London said: “Rosewood London encompasses an element of surprise in its design which gives this landmark building, steeped in and surrounded by history, the lease of life it deserves.”

Rosewood’s signature Sense Spa is to be unveiled in 2013 with a range of ancient and contemporary therapies. The spa will house six treatment suites, designed with Asian-influenced split bamboo to encourage energy flow from both the walls and floors.

A double treatment room, the Duet Suite, will offer privacy with separate changing facilities, shower and steam room, as well as two therapists to perform a range of holistic treatments.

Another highlight of the spa will be the teak and gold leaf relaxation room with individual therapeutic loungers surrounding a central island with water, sliced fruits and herbal teas.

Both male and female changing rooms will offer dry-heat saunas and an amethyst crystal steam room.

The hotel also includes a fully-equipped fitness suite featuring the latest equipment from Technogym.

Dining option will include the Holborn Dining Room, designed by Martin Brudnizki, launching in February 2014 and Holborn Delicatessen, launching February 2014.
