The DNA: The most exciting luxury hotel opening in Hong Kong for the best part of a decade, the Rosewood Hong Kong now dominates the central Kowloon waterfront. Inside its coppery confines, it has 413 beautifully designed rooms and suites, a splendid contemporary art collection and views that would stagger the gods. The hotel’s cobbled driveway and petite lobby has been designed for discreet arrivals, which means there’s little in the way of arrival buzz. The “oohs” and “aahs” come later, as you come to realise how wonderfully indulgent and thoughtfully designed it all is – gleaming marble, hypnotic eight-point geometric motifs, high-backed chairs, check carpets and artworks that stop you in your tracks.
