Just when you thought that there was no more prime real estate to be had on the frontage of Hong Kong’s fabled Victoria Harbour, along comes the Rosewood to prove otherwise.
Occupying 27 floors of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates’ shiny new 65-storey tower, the 413-room and 186-residences hotel makes the most of its perch overlooking Tsim Sha Tsui’s Victoria Dockside and Hong Kong’s bristling silhouette of neon charged skyscrapers.
If there was a budget, we suspect no one told Tony Chi – who also created the marque’s London hotel – the New York-based designer swathing the spaces, the bathrooms in particular, in acres of marble and beveled mirrors, textured wallpaper, and discretely patterned furnishings.
When the hotel’s eight food and beverage outlets and two-level wellness spa no longer appeal, the hotel’s concierges can organise insider visits to fashion ateliers and neighbourhood tours in a Range Rover Supercharged Long Wheelbase.
