Rosewood Hong Kong

Victoria Dockside, Tsim Sha Tsui
last updated: 10 Jan 2020

In a region where ultra-luxe hotels are hoisted as regularly as typhoon signals, it takes a truly groundbreaking opening to capture the public’s attention. Enter Rosewood Hong Kong: part of New World’s shimmering multi-use development at Victoria Dockside, seven years in the making. The eponymous hotel group’s Asian flagship towers over the surrounding arts & culture precinct — a gleaming 65-storey monolith that somehow manages both an air of remoteness and intense exhilaration. Conceived by New York-based tonychi studio as a ‘vertical estate’, the property tells the story of the Cheng family (a powerful local clan who indirectly own the Rosewood brand) through its many lofty seamlessly interlocking spaces: lift lobbies double as lavishly appointed sitting areas; characterful nooks & crannies (including a women’s only speakeasy) abound in plain sight; and F&B venues possess a communal, decidedly unstuffy sensibility. Even if you haven’t booked yourself in for a stay, we recommend making time to explore the hotel’s myriad dining offerings. (The Legacy House is a paean to fine Cantonese cookery from Shunde, while DarkSide serves up what is quite possibly the most delicious Old Fashioned in town.)
