Rosewood Hotels & Resorts Introduces A Sense of Place Journeys
September 10, 2014Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® introduces “A Sense of Place Journeys” which are designed to immerse guests in the essence of some of the most desirable destinations in the world. These two-day itineraries have been thoughtfully created to allow guests to explore classic landmarks, unearth hidden discoveries and enjoy unique, private experiences. The journeys are guided by Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy that each property should be a reflection of its location’s history, geography and culture.
Available at selected Rosewood hotels in cities around the world, including New York, London, Vancouver, Dallas, San Miguel de Allende, Menlo Park, Santa Fe and at Rosewood Beijing opening soon, the new “A Sense of Place Journeys” offer a taste of the cuisines, cultures and characters of these intriguing locales. “A Sense of New York” begins in style with a chauffeur-driven Maybach waiting to collect guests from the airport, with the option to arrive at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel via the private underground entrance usually reserved for royalty and heads of state. The journey continues with memorable Manhattan experiences, such as a chartered boat tour around the city, a 20-course tasting menu at New York’s most exclusive restaurant Eleven Madison Park and the finest table at Café Carlyle.
By contrast, “A Sense of Vancouver” encourages guests to explore the great outdoors with a custom-fitting for clothing at the Lululemon Lab in Vancouver, followed by a private, candle-lit evening yoga session at the atmospheric Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. The journey continues with a Harbour Air Seaplane tour that offers sweeping views of Vancouver, Indian Arm, Fraser Valley and Pinecone Burke Provincial Park and concludes with a gourmet picnic on the remote Widgeon Lake.
While in Dallas, guests will experience both sides of the colorful city with some traditional Texan fun including customized cowboy hats from the famous Wild Bill’s Western Store, a tour of the world-famous Southfork Ranch and lunch at the city’s best BBQ restaurant, Pecan Lodge. The second day will highlight the exciting arts scene in Dallas with a private tour of the Nasher Sculpture Center, a picnic in the city’s newest green space, Klyde Warren Park, and tickets to any current performance at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
Whether it is through art, architecture, design or dining, each “A Sense of Place Journey” delivers unforgettable experiences, such as exploring a historic textile factory in San Miguel de Allende, a self-guided tech excursion through Apple’s world-renowned headquarters in Silicon Valley, a docent tour of the Georgia O’ Keefe Museum to learn more about Santa Fe’s most celebrated artist or learning to cook the perfect Great British breakfast in London.
“Today, luxury is increasingly defined by experiences not by objects or labels,” said Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. “We think of Rosewood’s guests as affluential explorers who take delight in discovery rather than display. These journeys are designed to offer a truly memorable insight into a city and to go above and beyond typical concierge recommendations.”
Rosewood’s “A Sense of Place Journeys” are priced from USD1,910 for two persons, excluding taxes, and include either two nights or three nights’ accommodation, based on availability. Further information is available at rosewoodhotels.com.
