Rosewood Hong Kong - now open

Saw on Instagram that the hotel is up and running. Definitely designed with SNS in mind judging from the location tag. Hope our esteemed HK based agents will be able to post more room pictures and reviews.

Stay, with video etc, will come later this year - going to give them some time to iron out any opening issues.
For photos, I'll be back there in April but I think some of the others on this forum are coming through earlier and staying so may be able to get pics!

Here at the IAD BA Lounge...11:15pm and not boarding for another hour (getting too old for this!)...But fear not, I shall touch down in HK in 16 hours and will be staying at Rosewood for 4 nights. Will supply photos! Will post videos of the airport transfer (include VIP meet & greet), hotel space, rooms, Manor Club, etc...via my Instagram story as well. Might be a better tool for some than just photos on here. Instagram handle: @BESVISOR

Looking forward to your photos/review
I'm currently booked at the Upper House for a 1 night lay over stay later this May
but slightly tempted to switch my stay to the Rosewood (although I do feel slightly bad as the Upper House team concierge team has been really helpful)

Ok, just arrived at the hotel an hour ago. Already really impressed. GM greeted me at the entrance at 6am. My room was ready (Manor Club Room) and I was not expecting it till much later as they are so busy this week. Stunning property, just fabulous, I'm trying to find a way to extend my stay However, bad news that the pool isn't ready yet. There's a permit issue and it's dragging on a bit.

For those who can't wait for photos and a detailed review after the stay, I've just posted airport VIP meet and greet, transfers, and hotel (room and manor club) videos on my Instagram Stories: @BESVISOR

Just watched all your stories, looks good!
Reminds me a little of the Rosewood in Beijing.
View seems awesome.

Views from Grand Harbour rooms/suites are insanely good. Especially being on floor 37th at the moment. You can actually get a full display of Central, Victoria Harbour and Kowloon all in the same frame. Pretty amazing and neither IC nor the Peninsula can really match it.

Yea I like how you can see the Peninsula and the helipads too, pretty iconic shot!
Hows the EWB Range? I saw the Qi Charger on the arm rest, thats cool, but hows the legroom and seat comfort? Do the back seats recline?

Yes, I really liked the Qi charger. The Range Rover was extended wheel base for sure and seats do recline a substantial degree. It was enough for me to nap
Chilled water with snacks. You can select a variety of music as well from the monitor.

I would take the RR over the Jaguar here, every time.

Just posted tour of the Grand Harbour Corner Suite on my Instagram story...it's an AMAZING suite!!! I don't think any other hotel here can really compare with its views. Specially at sunset.
Would highly suggest booking the Deluxe Harbour Suite and upgrade at booking (via ELITE) to the Grand Harbour Corner Suite.

I will post photos post trip but even the entry Kowloon Peak Suite has a wide view of the Harbour but just to the west side so you're not able to see the skyline in central.

Posted a video of the outdoor pool as well.

Is there a bar or restaurant that offers good views as well? Ill be there next month (but not staying at Rosewood) and Id like my kids to see the skyline view from Kowloon.

How many Deluxe Harbour view suites are there? I'm guessing everyone is going for a suite when staying there.

There are no mention of the Harbour House and the Garden House on the website, the top suites with private lap pools as mentioned in the press release below ?
https://www.rosewoodhotels.com/en/ho...h-2019-Opening

Any ideas ?
