Rosewood CEO reveals vision as new business hotel brand launches

by Jane Kitchen | 13 Dec 2017

Rosewood Hotel Group has launched a new hotel brand, Khos, with a focus on the modern business traveller and inspired by “the energy, art, innovation, creativity, style and dynamism of modern-day Asia”.

Derived from the Mongolian word meaning 'pair', Khos will be a global brand, with locations in capital cities, urban portals, business centres and resort destinations.

The first Khos hotels will be announced in 2018 and opened later in the year.

Innovative approaches to recreation and relaxation will be applied to areas from spas and wellness facilities to business centres and executive lounges, the company said.

“We’ve created Khos to serve the needs of a new generation of business travellers – individuals who are constantly on the move and crave places to stay that understand, mirror and support their dynamic personas,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood.

“Hotels have not kept pace with the evolution of this group of travellers and Khos reflects a new age in hospitality in which business travel is inseparable from lifestyle.”

Traditional hotel facilities will be re-conceived to create opportunities to spontaneously interact with fellow travellers.

The brand says it intends to create an environment for repose and reflection, so guests can have “time to unwind, meditate and create – all essential components of a lifestyle in which work and leisure are intertwined in one continuum”.
