US-based hospitality company Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been selected by Chinese property development company Lonsen Land Group to manage Rosewood Shanghai in mainland China.

The groundbreaking ceremony for Rosewood Shanghai is expected to take place in 2022. The new hotel is anticipated to open in 2028.

Rosewood Hotel Group CEO Sonia Cheng said: “As we continue to grow the brand throughout Asia and specifically mainland China, Shanghai has long been a priority destination in which to plant the Rosewood flag.

“The country’s largest city and economic hub, Shanghai embodies several of our key brand values – innovation, creativity and originality. We are thrilled to bring a new standard of luxury to the region and thank our partners at Lonsen Land Group for the opportunity they’ve given us to do so.”

Located in the heart of Shanghai’s Jing’An District and Suhewan area, Rosewood Shanghai is said to offer easy access to the city for its guests.

It will feature 200 guestrooms and suites, five food and beverage establishments as well as Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ wellness concept called Asaya.

Designed by international studio Foster + Partners, Rosewood Shanghai will offer expansive views of the metropolis.

It will be housed in the top floors of a mixed-use site’s landmark building, which at 320 metres will be one of the tallest complexes in the city’s Puxi district.

Lonsen Land Group chairman Ruan Xingxiang said: “For many, Shanghai is known as ‘Mo Du’, the Magic City; cherished for its rich cultural heritage, modern lifestyle offerings and captivating social scenes.

“With the brand’s A Sense of Place philosophy and referencing to the success story of its trophy property in Hong Kong, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts makes an ideal partner of us to reinvent Shanghai’s charm as a destination to the affluential explorers from around the world.”
