Rosewood to operate urban spa hotel in Chengdu, opening in 2023

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has secured a management contract for a luxury hotel and spa in Chengdu, the capital of China's Sichuan province.

The 180-bedroom hotel is being built by property developer Saiho Group as part of a 300-meter tall, mixed-use tower in an integrated complex in the city’s central business district. Covering the tower’s top floors, the hotel will target both business and leisure guests and will have a focus on wellness and dining.

Facilities include an urban day spa, a large health club and four restaurants and bars. The exact details of the spa are yet to be confirmed, but it is expected to be operated under the Sense, a Rosewood Spa brand.

Rosewood is the latest hotel group to announce a property in Chengdu, one of China's major IT bases and among the country’s fastest-growing urban areas. Local officials have set an ambitious target of transforming the city into a major trade gateway and commercial hub.

According to the local government’s “Five-Year Plan”, published in December 2015 and covering the period from 2016 to 2020, the city plans to become a “comprehensive affluent society” with high living standards, a core growth hub for western China, and an international regional centre by 2020. By 2020, the city’s GDP is expected to be three times that of 2010’s figure, and personal income is expected to double.

“We are very grateful to Saiho Group for the opportunity to express the Rosewood brand’s A Sense of Place concept in this fascinating and vibrant destination,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We will draw upon the location’s history, commerce, culture and striking surrounding landscape to create a very memorable guest experience, enhanced by the engaging service which is Rosewood’s hallmark.”

Chengdu will add to Rosewood’s expanding footprint in Greater China, which includes the Rosewood Beijing; recently opened Rosewood Sanya, the brand’s first China resort; and the upcoming Rosewood Guangzhou and Rosewood Hong Kong, both opening in 2018.

In total, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts currently manages 20 luxury properties in 11 countries, with 17 new hotels under development.
