Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®: Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel, Rosewood
London and Rosewood Bangkok
Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel - Timeless Parisian landmark hotel begins a new chapter
in its history
Fronted by the majestic architecture of Ange-Jacques Gabriel, Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel faces the
spectacular Place de la Concorde, one of the most beautiful city-squares in the world. In keeping with RosewoodHotels & Resorts’ concept in which each property reflects its location’s history, culture and sensibilities, Hôtel de Crillon’s design has been reinterpreted through the collective work of leading architects, designers, artisans, and artists.
History has been brought to life with a fresh and modern twist, while beloved and unique objects emblematic
to the hotel’s history can still be found throughout the property. Architect Richard Martinet
led the whole restoration and renovation of Hôtel de Crillon including the landmark façade and grand reception rooms on the second floor, which are classified heritage landmarks. Under the Artistic Director Aline Asmar d’Amman insured the coherence of the whole design project, and drove and inspired the interior designers, the hotel’s interiors were created by four Paris-based designers: Tristan Auer, Chahan Minassian, Cyril Vergniol and Aline Asmar d’Amman (Culture in Architecture). The approach was to respect history, while simultaneously
injecting a modern attitude and a touch of Parisian irreverence. Karl Lagerfeld, renowned designer and a great
18th century admirer, has decorated two exceptional suites on Place de la Concorde and together called "Les
Grands Appartements.", which convey his personal vision of French chic and modernity. Landscape architect Louis Benech, with his subtle hand, conceived Hôtel de Crillon’s whimsical courtyards.
With its prestigious address and reputation for exquisite hospitality à la française, Hôtel de Crillon has attracted
royalty, heads of state and celebrities over the course of its storied history. The hotel features 124 guestrooms and suites; four restaurants; Sense, A Rosewood Spa; a newly created swimming pool; three heritage landmark
salons for meetings and functions, and more.
Rosewood London - Heritage building transformed into a stylish retreat in the heart of London
Located in Holborn, one of London’s most historic locales where the City meets the West End, Rosewood London is a unique retreat set in the very heart of London. The hotel sits next to the shopping areas and tourist attractions such as Covent Garden and Royal Opera House, as well as many renowned museums and art galleries.
Located at the old headquarters of Pearl Assurance Company, following an extensiverenovation to sensitively transform the 1914 Edwardian Belle Epoque building, the original architectural features have been painstakingly restored by an expert team of craftsmen, including the magnificent Grade II- listed street frontage and dome, and the grand Pavonazzo marble staircase which rises up through all seven storeys of the hotel beneath the 166-foot cupola.
Rosewood London is designed to be one of the most exciting places to drink and dine in London. The Lobby Lounge, a public meeting space, is the window into the stylish world of Rosewood London and the Mirror Room, a striking salon elegantly adorned with mirrors, offers appealing and social all-day dining and afternoon tea. The hotel’s bar, designed by the renowned Martin Brudnizki, evokes a convivial atmosphere with a roaring fire at one end and wooden bar running along the other. Brudnizki’s interior draws on classic British design, mixing reclaimed oak with antique mirrors and leather upholstery. The dining room includes a bar and a dining counter, each topped with aged copper and patina brass, it leads to The Terrace in the hotel’s peaceful inner courtyard, where guests can dine alfresco or enjoy a fine cigar.
The 262 guestrooms and 44 suites of Rosewood convey the feel of stylish London residences, the suites offer some of London’s finest accommodation and include the Grand Manor House Wing. Accessed via a private elevator and its own street entrance, it is the only hotel suite in the world to have its own postcode.

Rosewood Bangkok - Reshaping Bangkok’s Skyline
Rosewood Bangkok, a striking new landmark for the capital, has opened as an intimate, ultra-luxury hotel on
Ploenchit Road in heart of the city’s prime central business and retail district in 2019. Rosewood’s A Sense of
Place® philosophy is exuberantly expressed with a design that honours rich Thai culture while celebrating the cutting-edge creativity and contemporary design ethos of the dynamic capital. The silhouette of the 30-storey
standalone property is a dramatic addition to the Bangkok skyline. Two graceful, connected structures have been masterfully combined to create a new icon for the capital. The building’s form is inspired by the wai -- the charming Thai gesture of hands pressed together in greeting – and is itself an expression of the Thai capital’s
growing influence as a design, fashion and creative hub in the region.
The hotel has been designed to create a sense of intimacy and privacy throughout the entire guest journey; the brand’s signature blend of stylish comfort and inspired design is delivered by a décor of rich materials and
finishes in a soothing, neutral colour palette. In addition to the structure’s glossy façade and stunning architecture, water features within the hotel -- including a dramatic, indoor 10-story waterfall -- are a tribute to Bangkok, a city built on water. The element of water -- sacred in Thai culture, featuring in rites and rituals to
symbolize peace and harmony -- is a pervasive theme throughout the hotel.
The hotel also showcases works of established and emerging Thai artists including significant pieces by Preecha Thaothong, named Thailand's National Artist of the Year 2009; Pinaree Sanpitak, one of the country’s most respected female artists of her generation; and Torlarp Larpjaroensook, whose work both challenges and intrigues. The hotel’s “Art Connection” quarterly rotating exhibit features the multi-media works of emerging
Thai artists, launching with a showcase of oil paintings by Kittaya Poolsawatdi.
The ultra-luxury hotel embraces a striking, contemporary architectural design and is home to 159 guestrooms. In an inspired expression of the brand’s A Sense of Place® philosophy, carefully curated interiors, dining, and spa experiences are an amalgam of contemporary sophistication and a modern showcase of Thailand’s rich
Sense, A Rosewood Spa is a sanctuary of simplicity and purity that embraces traditional Thai healing practices paired with natural ingredients that are sustainably cultivated. This is reflected in signature treatments that are based on Thailand’s time-honored “lost remedies” tailored for health and beauty.

The scones and pastry items also adopt shapes from modernism in architecture that are distinctly The Murray.

FILA x WilsonGear up the Elegance
This Summer, anticipation among tennis enthusiasts and sports fanatics flares up as Italian high fashion sportswear icon FILA and renowned American sports brand Wilson join hands in a two-strong collaboration.
Both FILA and Wilson boast a prominent presence in the modern tennis scene. In 1973, the F-Box logo brought the first splash of colour to the all-white tennis tournament attire, a historic moment when FILA established itself in the world map of tennis sport. The brand went on to become the official partner of the US Open for 22 consecutive years from 1982 onwards. Meanwhile, Wilson rose to international fame with the first alloy racket and composite racket, made possible only by consistent innovation in materials. Over the years, amicable competition has spurred both brands to strike sparks off each other as they strived to make waves in the tennis world.
The collaboration tapped tennis player Kiki Bertens as the face of the crossover collection. The 28-year-old rising star won a total of 10 WTA titles with current ranking at seventh.
A nod to the trending retro style, FILA x Wilson collection presents a coveted ensemble of on-court and off-court apparel, with a sophisticated interplay of classic elements such as the signature F logo and W logo, crispy lines and colour-blocking.
Functionality and technical materials play a key role to ensure high performance on court. A perfect union of FILA’s sporty-chic codes and Wilson’s professional savoir-faire, the collection borrows the signature palette and silhouette of Wilson rackets,with the use of the light and breathable triacetate from Japan for excellent practicality.
Comfort and style blend well in the versatile line of off-court items perfect for all occasions. The signature logos of the brands are reimagined with stylish logo play and monogram, while athleisure chic dazzles with the brands’ classic red and white palettes.
Alongside sportswear items, FILA and Wilson also remake the much-coveted FILA ADE tennis shoes for the crossover. Tennis culture stands out with the collage of mesh and leather inspired by the tennis net. A combination of retro and modern vibes in totality, the shoes feature the brands’ red and white DNA palettes and the iconic eagle claw, while the light and robust Goodyear sole offers a refined final touch．

On the night of a romantic reunion, drink the glass of cognac with that special someone that you miss every day, and may your bond be forever true, rich in love and full of happiness.
In 1870, Maurice Hennessy created Hennessy X.O for his circle of friends. Since then, it has become the cognac to share with friends and family, as its outstanding quality has been maintained for 150 years, recognised as a symbol of luxury, power and passion. Hennessy X.O is bold and complex, blended with the spicy aroma of oak and leather.
Each Special Edition gift box of Hennessy X.O and V.S.O.P contains a 700mL bottle and an additional 50mL mini bottle. Celebrate this Chinese Valentine’s Day with a glass of cocktail inspired by Hennessy’s cognac and share your love and affection with your beloved.

Our collarless linen belted jacket and unstructured shirt dress offer a relaxed take on elegance, while our men's suiting can be mixed and matched, creating multiple styles.
