Harborside skyscraper channeling an opulent penthouse with its prolific contemporary art collection, chandeliers, and all-day tearoom
West Kowloon, once part of a lawless enclave, was scrubbed clean of its murky past through a series of recent redevelopment projects—namely, the Global Art and Design District, a reimagined turn-of-the-century wharf. In many ways, this graceful, marble-lined hotel inside a 65-story skyscraper is an attractive ambassador for that urban renaissance. The Rosewood’s spacious rooms are the jade-tinged visions of Taiwanese design star Tony Chi and inspired by the property’s polished pedigree—Rosewood Hotel CEO Sonia Cheng is an heir to one of the world’s largest jewelry store chains, Chow Tai Fook. As a tribute to her lineage, Chi adorned the interiors with intricate Asian motifs and geometric chandeliers, though he lets the bustling harborfront panorama take center stage. Damien Hirst butterflies line the walls at the airy all-day tearoom while refined Cantonese plates (minced fish soup, barbecued meats) are the draw at the Legacy House. Just don’t miss a cocktail at the hotel’s glamorous jazz bar, the Dark Side.
In the Area
Though you’re a 15-minute walk from the nearest MTR station, the hotel is positioned near the city’s recently revitalized dockside, a three-million square foot expanse which includes world-class attractions like the Salisbury Garden (a lush tropical green oasis with an elliptically shaped lawn) and the Avenue of the Stars, a tribute to celebs from Hong Kong’s prolific film industry. To get to adjacent Hong Kong island, hop aboard the Star Ferry. A 15-minute ride will bring you within easy reach of the markets of Causeway Bay, the watering holes of Lan Kwai Fong, and the tracks of Happy Valley, a popular racecourse-turned-tourist attraction.
How to Get There
The initiatives and care put to the sustainable concepts is important and would affect my choice of hotels. The stylish room decor, the beautiful design of the lobby area, the tasteful interior design of the hotel itself, the newness and modernness of the facilities and even the elegant staff attire - everything was top level.
Was also especially impressed with the dinner at Asaya and the concept behind it, using local products and showcasing what is special locally. In these tumultuous times I believe it is all the more important to stand with the local community and what HK itself offers, regardless of political opinion.
This is simply one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Our Harbour View suite had the most spectacular views ( hard to rival in the world I suspect). The service and offering in Manor Club and the attentiveness of the staff second to none. The butler team were all most helpful and made a real difference to our stay - particularly Della. She is a huge credit to the hotel and made us feel like her most important guests as did all your staff. You combine professionalism with friendliness. We also loved all the restaurant experiences, particuarly Asaya, which we think is a wonderful concept and wish Chef Marin every success with this venture. Thank you for making my visit to see my son in Hong Kong truly memorable - I am sure you will earn your place as the best place to stay in HK !
We stayed two nights with the family (one four year old daughter). The experience starts after booking by Rosewood sending a questionnaire to understand the guest profile. I highly recommend filling this questionnaire as the hotel will tailor the visit based on it. There were gifts and cards and bathrobes and stepladders and starfish and many other things waiting in the room for our daughter. The rooms are beautiful, restaurants are great but the service is the best part of the visit. The staff is extremely friendly but not over the top or intrusive. We ate the Legacy House and while it looked that the staff was busy they always appeared without promoting when needed as through telepathy. Without the staff this hotel is great, with the staff it becomes an exceptional hotel. Thank you Rosewood!
