“As one of the fastest growing cities in mainland China, Guangzhou has been – and will continue to be – a major contributor to economic growth. The city is well on its way becoming a global megacity with increasing international influence, as the country’s vision for the Greater Bay Area comes to fruition, and we are thrilled to open Rosewood Guangzhou during this ambitious ascent,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer, Rosewood Hotel Group, in a statement.

Rosewood Guangzhou is the hotelier’s fourth property in the Greater China region, following Rosewood Beijing, Rosewood Sanya and Rosewood Hong Kong. “Excitingly, alongside the newly-opened Rosewood Hong Kong, the Rosewood brand will now be able to offer a distinguished, modern and inspired hotel experience at both ends of the Greater Bay Area,” added Cheng.

The hotel boasts the region’s largest spa and fitness facility, with two floors dedicated to the amenities.
