Rosewood Hotels and Resorts will manage a new luxury property being developed in Chengdu, the capital of China's Sichuan province. The 180-room Rosewood Chengdu, which will be the company's fifth hotel in China, is slated to open for business in 2023. The property will occupy the top floors of a new, nearly 1,000-foot-tall tower being developed as part of a mixed-use complex in the central business district. 
The new hotel will offer an exclusive Manor Club executive lounge, as well as four restaurants and bars. A spa, a fitness center and a pool also will be on-site, as will The Pavilion, Rosewood's signature, residential-style meeting and function space.
The property, which is being developed by the Chengdu-based Saiho Group, is part of a significant new development in a city that has become an important commercial center. More than half of the Fortune 500 companies have branches in Chengdu.

"We are very grateful to Saiho Group for the opportunity to express the Rosewood brand's 'A Sense of Place' concept in this fascinating and vibrant destination," said Rosewood Hotel Group CEO Sonia Cheng. "We will draw upon the location's history, commerce, culture and striking surrounding landscape to create a very memorable guest experience, enhanced by the engaging service that is Rosewood's hallmark."
