Rosewood’s latest ultra-residential offering marries inspirational interior design and state-of the-art facilities, coupled with signature services and special amenities as the ultimate expression of fuss-free modern living.
July 17, 2019
The launch of Rosewood Residences Hong Kong combines the superlative hallmarks of the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® brand in its home city. A union of leading-edge interior design with the comforts and intimacy of a family home and the world-class amenities, seamless service and exclusive services of Rosewood, the residences present a paradigm shift for luxury residential living. Boasting highly personalised services throughout the length of each stay, Rosewood Residences Hong Kong plays host to a complete suite of offerings crafted for the ultimate in ease, comfort and convenience. Residences’ guests can look forward to bespoke amenities, exceptional services and community-building activities in a compelling destination for Tsim Sha Tsui and the Kowloon waterfront, which adds an important and differentiated voice to the city’s residential market as part of the groundbreaking Rosewood Hong Kong multi-use luxury tower.
As the ultra-luxury hospitality jewel of Victoria Dockside and the first purpose-designed Rosewood Residences made available exclusively for short and long-term rental, according to Rosewood Hotel Group CEO, Sonia Cheng: “Rosewood Residences Hong Kong adds a whole new facet to being ‘in residence’ and brings world class services and amenities to the guest experience.” She adds, “The specialised attention to detail and creating a bespoke experience for residents that emphasises privacy and security but also provides access and convenience – and of course, adding all the touches of home and customisation to a level not seen in serviced apartments - are the cornerstones of what makes Rosewood Residences not only unique for Hong Kong and China, but the finest example of its kind worldwide.”
The amiable splendours begin upon arrival, as Rosewood Residences’ guests enter through a private lobby at ground level on Salisbury Road, before stepping into elevators that transport them to Club 53, Rosewood Residences’ spacious private lounge concept. Here, in this new ultra-luxurious retreat with an array of carefully curated lifestyle amenities, guests can enjoy the expansive full-service offerings of a 24-hour private club, and simply choose to collect their mail, stop to sip a coffee and have a snack, or go for a workout, enjoy a swim, or transition to the elevators to take them to their studio apartment, with one-bedroom units and above having their own semi-private elevator directly into the apartments.
Occupying the 53rd floor of the Rosewood Tower, Club 53 boasts a series of shared areas - centred around the spectacular, double-height lounge and various rooms -- where guests can feel at home and be with friends and family. Light-filled spaces abound, with plunging views onto the sparkling harbour designed by renowned, visionary hospitality designer Tony Chi, of New York studio tonychi. Chi has created a complete experience for a new era of differentiated, elevated residential living that includes jewel-like apartments, leafy private gardens and picturesque verdant terraces for a handful of select units.
In Club 53’s warm, cocooning surrounds, guests can enjoy concierge service 24 hours a day, while cosying up to a good book, working remotely, or helping themselves to a light breakfast or all-day homemade snacks from the well-stocked pantry. An accent on well-being is highlighted throughout - in the spacious, state-of-the-art fitness centre, or for workouts with a personal trainer in the standalone PT studio. An additional yoga studio flanking the heated indoor pool is also set up for TRX training. Here, roasted coffee is available on tap, while water and healthful snacks can be enjoyed alongside a relaxing dip in the marble, heated lap pool or while luxuriating on the designer sun-loungers in this light-flooded space surrounded by glittering views of Victoria Harbour. A plentiful programme of well-being activities such as group yoga, personal training sessions and fitness activities engage the mind, body and spirit.
Showcasing unmatched water, Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peak mountain views, Rosewood Residence’s 186 self-contained apartments boast spacious, meticulously designed luxury at every turn. With monthly rentals starting from HKD 57,000 to HKD 1,600,000 the array of Rosewood Residences Hong Kong apartments ranges from 44-square-metre (474-square-foot) studios, to statuesque one-bedroom apartments starting at 74 square metres (797- square feet) in size and transitioning to two-bedroom apartments starting at 109 square metres (1,173 square feet) in size.
Four stunningly appointed two-storey penthouses located on the 64th floor of the Rosewood Tower, each with its own unique and spellbinding aspect, characteristics and amenities, as well as the finest finishing and designer accessorising, boast sumptuous leather-clad walls, floors and ornamental shelving on each of their private staircases.
These include the three-bedroom, 417-square-metre (4,489-square-foot) Victoria Penthouse with Southwest-facing views overlooking Wanchai and Central, and its own dedicated residential screening room and freestanding bar, built-in oversized wine fridge and personal pantry on the top floor of each penthouse.

Distinguishing them among the largest residences in the city and with an accent on curated residential detailing, the refined styling of each residence is purposefully restrained, allowing guests to add their own accessories and belongings for a comforting personal touch.
During each Residences stay, Rosewood’s commitment to making residents feel instantly at home is highlighted with unique services including assistance with bespoke relocation and individual attention from one’s very own personal host, to help with settling in the city. Assisting with organising everything from after-school tutoring for children, to dog walking and grooming, residents have all the tools at their disposal for a seamless and fuss-free stay. Daily housekeeping and dishwashing, daily grocery shopping service, closet organisation, luggage storage and itemised Winter versus Summer clothing storage are integral services, with hosts going the extra mile to book restaurant reservations and secure privileged VIP status for travel reservations overseas within the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts network.
Enhancing the sense of home, guests are invited to customise their apartment to suit their individual preferences with a wide selection of kitchen appliances, such as slow juicers or blenders, to suit their needs. In-room amenities add to the home-like appeal, with a tailored welcome package for each and every guest. A thoughtful, well-designed work space in every residence offers up everything one needs to work from home, with inspirational harbour views bathed in natural light.
For a taste of adventure, residents are invited to discover the breadth and variety of Rosewood Hong Kong’s celebrated dining, wellness and experiential offerings that celebrate a sense of place in the dynamic, culturally compelling waterfront neighbourhood of Tsim Sha Tsui. With private dining experiences in the comfort of one’s residence catered by the team of expert chefs, memorable moments and masterful gastronomic experiences can be enjoyed with a flourish.
Opening in the Autumn, the Asaya experience will unlock another level of wellness, offering an integrative approach to self-change and transformation. Rosewood Hong Kong will house the first urban outpost of Asaya, Rosewood’s signature integrative wellness offering. Set over two dedicated floors, Asaya will revolve around specific individual wellness goals, supported by alternative therapies and rituals, enriching fitness and lifestyle activities, healthy eating plans, a dedication to pure, authentic ingredients and specially designed social spaces for relaxation and reflection with a membership programme that aims to build a sense of community for residents and global Asaya guests alike. Residents will be invited to discover Asaya with privileged membership rates and advance access to restorative retreats.
Beyond the tangible delights of the Residences is the direct access to a team of Rosewood personal hosts. Equipped with insider knowledge of Kowloon and Hong Kong – as well as a mission to transform wishes into reality – each host is devoted to helping guests settle into their new city with ease. For unparalleled personal attention, each resident will be matched with their very own host throughout the duration of their stay. In addition, Rosewood Residences’ relocation services take the hassle out of moving, with each host taking care of facilitating residents with everything from opening bank and phone accounts to setting up utility bills.
The community activities at the Residences are compelling for guests who are taking steps to newly establish themselves in the city. The discerning individuals who call the Rosewood Residences Hong Kong home will be privy to a robust calendar of engaging events, encompassing inclusive activities that celebrate culture and the brand’s signature A Sense of Place® ethos for all ages.
Meanwhile, the conclusion of each stay at Rosewood Residences Hong Kong is just as important as the arrival. Bidding a fond farewell, the Rosewood Residences team is on-site to assist with all the details of arranging a smooth exit – including transportation, packing services, storage and more. As a meaningful parting memento of each guest’s time at the Rosewood Residences, a member of the Rosewood team will follow up personally afterwards, to ensure that every last detail went flawlessly for the onward journey.
