Rosewood Guangzhou has opened its doors to the public, welcoming guests into a soothing environment in one of China’s most historically important port cities, now a bustling hub of finance and commerce.

We find out more.

The jewel of Rosewood Guangzhou welcomes guests

Perched atop Guangzhou’s tallest building, the Rosewood Guangzhou is a jewel in the crown of the skyscraper within which it sits.

Occupying the top 39 floors of the newly opened CTF Finance Centre, the hotel is an exercise in sophistication and elegance, with its calm and serene interiors creating an urban oasis where guests can retreat to after a long day exploring this historic and important Chinese city.

Sitting at 530m, the Rosewood Guangzhou also now bears the distinction of being the world’s highest 5* hotel. Guests can appreciate all the luxury and style in one of the property’s 251 guest rooms and suites, all of which afford visitors panoramic views through the generous fenestration.

A Sense of Place in Guangzhou

Rosewood’s A Sense of Place design philosophy is one which permeates every hotel they operate, but in Rosewood Guangzhou, this really comes to the fore.

Rosewood has taken the top floors of the Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates-designed building and teamed up with Canadian design firm Yabu Pushelberg to create a hotel which exudes the minimalism of the international style but with local flourishes and accents which speak to Guangzhou’s trading and industrial heritage.

This fusion of old and new is immediately apparent upon entering the hotel after taking a trip in the world’s fastest elevator from the ground floor up to the lobby, which is an expansive 5m high affair decorated with bronze screens and an eye-catching art installation.

Yabu Pushelberg has been methodical in its selection of materials, which recall local history and industry, and they have chosen traditional materials and artisanal crafts to channel the handiwork of local artists.

Vermillion-red lacquered doors and traditional silk screens abound, and these contrast with the simplicity of the guest rooms, which are executed in warm colours, textures and fabrics.

The hotel also boasts innovative dining experiences, the private Manor Club on the top floor, ample meeting and events spaces and a state-of-the-art spa for rest and relaxation.



Established in 1979, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been welcoming guests to a world of refinement and sophisticated travel for over three decades.
