Not only did we ogle Rosewood London last week (hopefully just phase one in Europe for the group), we also picked up some additional news: a first few snapshots of the rooms at Rosewood Beijing (coming next year) and the exciting update that another hotel is being planned for Bangkok.

Both hotels sound like they will be rather unique; the building in Beijing “will recall a mountain profile with contrasting volumes and shapes” and Bangkok promises 650-square foot Pool Sky Villas, with large terraces and private plunge pools (!!).

Rosewood Beijing will be opposite Rem Koolhaas’ CCTV Tower, with an exterior of Mongolian-sourced bluestone, whatever that is. All we suggest is that there will be no fireworks to celebrate the opening, something neighbor Mandarin Oriental would undoubtedly support. There will be 283 rooms and suites, spread among 22 stories, with the Manor Club as Executive Lounge. We like the first images showing clean lines and the usual crisp white sheets and contrasting dark wood.

A choice of six restaurants serving different cuisines should allow you to eat your way around the world without leaving the hotel, and spa facilities go beyond the indoor swimming pool and usual amenities to include five spa suites for overnight stays.

Rosewood Bangkok will open in 2017 on Ploenchit Road, next to the Ploenchit Skytrain Station Station and down the road from the new Park Hyatt, in a 33-story tall building of two connecting structures. The architecture will be inspired by the “wai”, the Thai gesture of greeting and welcome, and designed by the firm responsible for the International Commerce Centre in Hong Kong (home of the Ritz-Carlton), the Shanghai World Financial Centre (home of the Park Hyatt), and the renovation of the MoMA in New York.

Those Pool Sky Villas will be among a total of 146 rooms and suites. Naturally, there will be a couple of restaurants and a bar, a Sense spa, and swimming pool and fitness center.

Other Rosewood openings include Riyadh (Saudi Arabia, 2014), the Bahamas, Chongqing, Dubai, and Phuket (all 2015), and Bali and Jakarta (2017).
