Rosewood Chongqing to open in 2030

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by Chongqing Sunac Huacheng Real Estate Development Co., Ltd. to manage Rosewood Chongqing, set to open in the city’s Central Business District in 2030. Situated in the Jiangbeizui International Financial Center, one of China’s preeminent establishments for financial services, the ultra-luxury hotel will underscore Chongqing’s rapid economic development and growing tourism market as the city continues to build influence and recognition as one of the country’s most premium destinations. In addition to the prosperous potential of the locale, which is one of just four Chinese municipalities, the property further demonstrates Rosewood’s unwavering efforts to diversify its regional footprint as the tenth project in Greater China and the eighteenth in Asia. “Chongqing is quickly becoming a powerhouse of both business and recreational activity,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “It’s thrilling to have our latest project emerge in such an impactful city and to have the opportunity to play a real role in transformation of Chongqing’s luxury hospitality landscape. It’s the perfect place to continue our Asian expansion and we look forward to providing our affluential explorers with exceptional access to all it has to offer.” Sitting in close proximity to the City Center and high-end shopping and dining outlets, as well as multiple transportation hubs including an impressive subway interchange station on site, Rosewood Chongqing will be housed in a new build, mixed-use development and serve as an ideal gateway to the destination’s myriad business, leisure and cultural offerings. The hotel will occupy the most significant of the project’s four towers, which spans 470 meters and 103 floors and is the tallest building in the city and the twelfth tallest building in the world. Together the towers will also feature deluxe offices, apartments, residences, retail shops and public green spaces to present not only an entirely new lifestyle experience, but a completely revitalized city skyline. Upon completion, the hotel will offer 183 refined accommodations, including 25 spacious suites. Apart from four dining outlets – a bistro, a living room, a Chinese restaurant and a specialty bar, the hotel will also feature Sense, A Rosewood Spa® with multiple treatment rooms, a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool to create a serene urban sanctuary in the bustling city center. Rosewood Chongqing will also offer 945 square meters of meeting and event space for gatherings, including a grand ballroom. Rosewood Chongqing marks the latest addition to the brand’s most impressive pipeline to date and evidences Rosewood’s strategic expansion in Asia: when it opens, it will be the brand’s eighteenth property on the continent and the tenth in the Greater China area alone. This project follows the recent announcements of Rosewood Miyakojima and Rosewood Hangzhou and adds to the additional pipeline properties in key areas including Shanghai, Hoi An and Shenzhen.

  1. 2030 is so far ahead that I can hardly imagine it. Must be a huge amount of planning and working needed for a luxury hotel like the Rosewood.

    1. When you have a city that is growing so fast, I think you can see how this could be regarded as a relative safe bet for Rosewood. In 2010 Chongqing had a population of about 11.24 million. It’s now at over 16 million and expected to top 30 million by 2035 making it one of the fastest growing of the world’s largest cities.

  2. It’s a brave call to work on what guests will want in 2030. Technology and tastes are changing so fast that I wouldn’t want to be in charge of future-proofing this hotel.
