The tallest five-star hotel in the world: Rosewood Guangzhou opens

Earning the accolade of the tallest five-star hotel in the world, the new hotel soars to 530 metres at its highest point.

Known for their one-of-a-kind luxury properties across the world, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts have continued to live up to their reputation with their Guangzhou premises, their second address in mainland China.

In the heart of Guangzhou’s bustling and cosmopolitan Tianhe District, the hotel occupies the top 39 floors of the 108-story CTF Finance Centre, which has been bestowed the title of the seventh tallest building in the world. An instant icon, the hotel has become a symbol for the exponential growth of Guangzhou as an economic hub, center of innovation and international influence.

As always, Rosewood has employed their ‘A Sense of Place’ philosophy in the architecture, design and curation of experiences at Rosewood Guangzhou, weaving cultural heritage throughout the property in unmatched style and elegance. Guangzhou’s rich history can be seen and felt in everything from the white terracotta façade to a curated collection of innovative Chinese artwork by the country’s foremost contemporary artists.

Within the sky-high urban oasis guests have 251 expertly-designed guest rooms to choose from, in addition to the 355 Rosewood Residences for longer stay guests. The hotel is also home to the region’s largest spa and fitness facility, which sprawls over two floors, as well as a collection of seven distinct dining concepts with their own terraces, taking al fresco dining to new heights.

With views that stretch from the Pearl River to the Baiyun Mountains, guests can enjoy Guangzhou in the lap of luxury, whether that is from the sophistication of their room or mainland China’s highest bar and restaurant. The hotel’s status at China’s first 5G-enabled hotel is just the icing on the cake.
