Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has announced plans to make its first move into China with the opening of a 279-bedroom property in Beijing's Chaoyang District.

Located opposite the city's iconic CCTV Tower, the Bar Studio-designed Rosewood Beijing will open in mid-2013 and will be owned by New World Group. Facilities will include a Rosewood Sense-branded spa.

The spa will house six treatment rooms with balconies, as well as becoming the group's first to offer five spa suites designed for overnight stays. Treatments will reflect the cultural and natural environment of Beijing.

An indoor pool, a gym and a yoga studio will also feature among the amenities on offer at the new hotel, along with seven restaurants and lounges serving a variety of cuisines.

Rosewood Hotels and Resorts president Radha Arora said: "Guests will see A Sense of Place - our guiding philosophy to reflect and celebrate each location's culture, history and geography - exquisitely expressed in Rosewood Beijing.

"Contemporary and warm, homelike and refined, energetic and serene - all these aspects will be incorporated into the hotel's design and ethos."

Rosewood Beijing forms part of the group's Asian expansion plans and is a "precursor" to fast-paced growth that will add 10 properties open or in the pipeline within five years.

Hong Kong-based conglomerate New World Group incorporates management company New World Hospitality, which acquired Rosewood Hotels and Resorts last year.
