This is in addition to these ongoing complimentary benefits:

"Rosewood Hong Kong's unequalled location overlooking Victoria Harbour in the heart of the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront positions it as the crown jewel in the city's most exciting new art, design and retail hub," says Albert Herrera, Virtuoso's senior vice president of Global Product Partnerships. "This property will become a brand icon for Rosewood without question, highlighting the culture and its setting within one of the world's most dynamic cities. Virtuoso travelers will experience Hong Kong's vibrant culture in the ambience of an ultra-luxury private home, while enjoying Rosewood's signature intuitive service."
Rosewood Hong Kong will occupy 43 floors of the new 66-story tower, whose timeless appearance and glowing façade will become an instant landmark on the celebrated skyline. Its classical architecture will harmonize intimate interior elements within its contemporary setting, conveying a graciously elegant lifestyle throughout the public spaces and guest rooms. Rosewood Hong Kong will incorporate abundant green spaces and outdoor areas to reflect the brand's thoughtful vision of an elegant vertical manor, including select rooms and signature suites with private terraces and the presidential suites on the 57th floor, each with landscaped gardens and lap pools overlooking the harbor.
Rosewood Hong Kong redefines the standard for upscale accommodation with 322 impeccably designed guestrooms which, starting at 570 square feet, will be among the largest of any luxury hotel in the city. In keeping with Rosewood's A Sense of Place® guiding principle, more than 80 percent of the rooms will showcase majestic Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island views through floor-to-ceiling windows; the remainder will enjoy verdant Kowloon Peak vistas. Responding to a growing preference for the flexibility to rest, work, and entertain when traveling, the hotel will also offer 91 of the city's most spacious, thoughtfully designed suites, the highest number of any five-star luxury hotel – including the largest standard suite at 1,000 square feet. The collection will include 18 specialty suites with distinctive, inspired residential features such as private sky gardens, swimming pools and wellness facilities, as well as two- and three-bedroom and duplex choices for families.
Rosewood Hong Kong will have the largest number of butlers of any property in the city, providing a high level of relaxed, personalized service. Located on the 40th floor, the Manor Club will offer guests exclusive privileges, including elevated, delectable all-day dining and bespoke curated experiences. Rosewood Hong Kong's eight bars and restaurants will celebrate the city's world-class dining scene, creating an exciting new gastronomic hub in Kowloon. These unique contemporary dining and drinking concepts will reflect Rosewood's approach to intimate, lively dining, with most offering al fresco terraces to cater to the increasing appetite for outdoor living.
The hotel will also house the first urban Asaya, Rosewood's innovative new signature wellness concept. Spanning two floors, guests may enjoy an authentic journey of well-being and self-discovery, with integrative wellness and personalized fitness offerings, 11 treatment rooms, an outdoor swimming pool featuring glittering harbor views, a lifestyle retail concept and wellness gastronomy at Asaya Kitchen. Asaya will offer alternative therapies, lifestyle and nutrition coaching, educational programming, fitness activities, healing treatments and the opportunity to socialize through a shared goal for transformative wellness at your own pace.
