The best luxury Rosewood hotels and resorts in the world can be found below. We outline the very best hotels for families and couples looking for a pool and beachside luxury.
Rosewood hotels, which is now also part of New World Hotels and Resorts, and Pentahotels, was founded in 1979, with its first hotel being The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas. Their properties are skewed to the US, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
Prices usually range between $500 USD and $1,000 USD per night. Some of the most expensive Rosewood hotels include the super luxurious Hotel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris, Ile-de-France, which usually comes in over $1,000 USD per night, along with Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, Montalcino, Toscana (Tuscany), Italy, which is again, usually over $1,000 USD per night, The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, New York City, New York, the United States which comes in a smidge under $1,000 USD and Rosewood London in Westminster, the United Kingdom starting at around $925 USD per night.
One of our favorite Rosewood hotels is Las Ventanas Al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort in Los Cabos. Still, with the impending opening of an Aman and a new Four Seasons in the region, this Rosewood may or may not be knocked off one of the top spots. You can see which we think the best hotels in Los Cabos are, for future reference.
Is There A Rosewood Loyalty Scheme?
How about a loyalty scheme? Interestingly, although there is no Rosewood guest loyalty program, so there’s no way to collect points or miles for hotel stays. The good news is that, much like Four Seasons, select luxury travel agents can get you extra benefits for Rosewood stays.
Our Luxury Travel Concierge is one of those travel agents. Book with us for a variety of benefits at any Rosewood hotel or resort. Crucially, you can benefit from all our VIP benefits whilst still booking the same rates as on the hotel’s website direct. In some cases, we might even be able to add our benefits to existing Rosewood bookings.
Luxury Travel Diary’s concierge can also get you room upgrades, free breakfasts free, and perks, at no extra cost, at many other luxury hotel chains, including Four Seasons, Hyatt, Belmond, Aman, JW Marriott, InterContinental, and more.
Whether you are looking for family pools, a spa, a beachside resort, or a convenient city location for business or a short break, here are some of the best Rosewood hotels in the world across America, Asia, the Pacific region, Europe, and Africa:
1. Rosewood Phuket, Thailand
Rosewood Phuket is located on the holiday island of Phuket in Thailand. This luxury hotel is a magical place to spend your vacation. Lying just 60 minutes from Phuket International Airport, the Rosewood Phuket is a serene island escape set on a 600 meter beachfront at Emerald Bay (pictured above), in Kathu.
This tropical beach hideaway hotel features innovative architecture with subtle Thai influences that blend into the lush natural landscape kissed by glistening, crystalline waters. Unwind at the Asaya Spa, and enjoy dining at four exquisite restaurants and lounges. Our favorite is Ta Khai. A rustic beachside restaurant serves authentic Thai dishes.
The resort features 71 pavilions and villas, including one and two-bedroom Ocean View Pool Pavilions, Oceanfront Pool Pavilions, Ocean View Pool Villas, Beachfront Pool Villas, and two-bedroom Beach Houses, all with separate lounge and dining spaces, private terrace pool, garden, outdoor shower and bath and views of the Andaman Sea. We think the best rooms are those with direct beach access, step straight out into that deliciously warm sea.
The resort is spread along a white sand beach. One end is dedicated to action, sports, and families, while the other is peaceful and ideal for couples and romance.
Spend your days lazing in the immaculate tropical gardens and around the azure blue free-form pool. Those searching for an adventure can visit local fish farms, go snorkeling or enjoy a Phuket Elephant Sanctuary tour.
2. Rosewood Abu Dhabi
Rosewood Abu Dhabi is the epitome of palatial luxury with opulent and deeply luxurious interiors complete with sparkling chandeliers, inspired by the glistening Arabian Gulf. It is easily one of the best Rosewood Hotels in Asia.
This luxury five-star hotel delivers extravagance in bucketloads and is one of the best five-star hotels on Al Maryah Island in the United Arab Emirates.
The hotel is connected to the city’s upmarket Galleria Mall and is a short drive from the Corniche and other attractions like Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The Rosewood Abu Dhabi also has one of the best club lounges in Abu Dhabi.
The 25-meter outdoor pool is cooled in summer and heated in winter, and it is fabulous for families. There is also a wonderful Health and Fitness Club with state-of-the-art equipment and Sense, a Rosewood Spa® offering an extensive range of indulgent therapies.
Discover some of the finest global cuisines at one of the hotel’s nine incredible restaurants and bars, along with fine wines from their exclusive underground wine cellar. Try Dai Pai Dong with sumptuous Cantonese dishes and Sambusek offering exquisite Lebanese dining, not forgetting the Hidden Bar gin library, the ultimate, cozy spot to enjoy one of over 150 gins whilst taking in the Abu Dhabi skyline.
3. Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort
We think Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort in Los Cabo is the best Rosewood Hotel in Mexico. Other Rosewood hotels in Mexico include Rosewood Mayakoba on the Riviera Maya, Rosewood Puebla, and Rosewood San Miguel de Allende.
Offering “the windows to paradise,” Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort, is one of the best luxury hotels in Los Cabos. Located 20 minutes from San Jose del Cabo International Airport, the hotel is located between the cities of San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas in an area known as Cabo Real.
Every room is a spacious suite complete with a marble shower, Conchuela limestone floors, and a telescope for viewing the night sky. The Signature Beachfront and Oceanview Villas are mere steps from the legendary Sea of Cortés. From private, infinity-edge pools to the expansive bathroom, with steam and rain shower and infinity bathtub for two, this will be your private paradise.
Beyond the seven pools with poolside butler service, don’t miss the recently added beach cabanas with private Jacuzzis.
4. Hotel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel
How about Europe, which is the best Rosewood Hotel in Europe? There is the Rosewood London and the beautiful Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany, Italy. Still, in our opinion, the best Rosewood in Europe is Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris, France.
Hotel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel, has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and now shares the epitome of the elegance and spirit of Paris. Guests sink into the warmth and refinement of guestrooms offering a comfortable blend of 18th-century heritage and contemporary creature comforts. Dining options include Paris’s best-kept secret, L’Ecrin, the distinctive Brasserie d’Aumont the Jardin d’Hiver, and the hotel’s favored rendezvous spot, Bar es Ambassadeurs.
Sense, A Rosewood Spa, has a carefully curated menu of selected East Asian- and French-inspired treatments as well as a pool with a wow factor that features in our best hotels with pools in Paris.
A natural well of light illuminates the 17,600 gold scales of the residential-style pool of Hôtel de Crillon and the walls are decked in whimsical silvery greys. There are loads of textures throughout the room, and golden baubles on the walls punctuate the textured surfaces. The look is unusual and modern, if a little weird.
5. Rosewood Hotel Georgia
There is only one Rosewood Hotel in Canada, so we felt it deserved a position in this listing for all those North Americans that are located further North. Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver, British Columbia, combines the grandeur of the 1920s with contemporary elegance in the heart of Vancouver. This legendary hotel has been returned to its place as one of the most prominent hotels worldwide. Designed with a residential feel, the 156 guestrooms and suites layer modern sophistication against the historical backdrop of the hotel.
Like the unique character of the hotel, the restaurants and bars deliver classically grounded local ingredients driven by signature cooking techniques. The award-winning Hawksworth restaurant is considered one of Canada’s best dining venues, so be sure to try it out! Recreational facilities include Sense, a Rosewood Spa®; a state-of-the-art fitness center; and a saltwater lap pool.
6. Rosewood Mansion On Turtle Creek, Dallas, Texas, United States
We found it hard to choose the best Rosewood Hotel in the United States. We have included Rosewood, Washington, D.C, below. Other Rosewood hotels on American soil include Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Rosewood CordeValle in San Martin, California, Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, California and Rosewood Miramar Beach in Montecito, California and the sophisticated city hotel of The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel in New York.
But if we are picking the best Rosewood hotels in the world, surely it would be crazy to miss out on the very first Rosewood hotel in the world. Rosewood Mansion On Turtle Creek, Dallas, Texas, in the United States.
Rosewood Mansion On Turtle Creek, is the first-ever Rosewood hotel. This iconic hotel is also the most celebrated hotel and restaurant in Texas. The Mansion Restaurant is housed within a historic private residence built in 1925 by the cotton baron, Sheppard King. The hotel was opened in 1980.
In the heart of Dallas’ most fashionable neighborhood, the hotel offers the ambiance of a private residence with 127 guest rooms, each of at least 450 ft² and 16 suites.
The five-star restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and includes small, intimate private dining areas, as well as the main dining room with its adjacent enclosed veranda and outdoor terrace. A fireplace at each end of the main dining area and a collection of art and antiques make this room feel like a grand hall. Another great feature of this hotel is the complimentary car service, which will take you to dinner, shopping, or anywhere you like within five miles of the hotel.
7. Rosewood Bermuda
Rosewood Bermuda is one of the best Rosewood Hotels in the Caribbean, although you could argue that Bermuda lies further North in the Atlantic. Other Rosewood hotels in the Caribbean are Rosewood Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas, and Rosewood Little Dix Bay in Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. It is hard to choose which of these hotels is best as they are all wonderful!
The Rosewood Bermuda is actually the centerpiece of Tucker’s Point Club, Bermuda’s premier resort, golf club, and residential community. Gracing 240 beautiful coastal acres on the island, the award-winning tropical hideaway neighbors the estates of Tucker’s Town and offers breathtaking vistas of the ocean and sound. With 92 rooms and suites, guests feel they are part of an elite club with access to private pink-sand beaches, as well as the island’s finest amenities. Golf, sail the ocean blue, dive shipwrecks, play a friendly game of tennis, or “spa” to their heart’s delight within this well-appointed setting.
For a bit of fun, you can explore the resort’s 240 acres of manicured grounds by golf cart or scooter or simply take the short trolley ride to the hotel’s private pink-sand beach and spend the day there!
8. Rosewood Hong Kong
Rosewood Hong Kong soars over Victoria Harbour on the Kowloon waterfront and is one of the best luxury hotels in Hong Kong. On passing the gate and traversing the cobblestoned drive, the urban din falls away, revealing lush topiary and a serene forecourt that commands the harbor.
Occupying 43 floors of a multi-use tower, the ultra-luxury hotel will offer 413 guestrooms, eight dining options, a fitness center, a swimming pool, and the first urban setting for Asaya, Rosewood’s innovative holistic wellness concept. The Manor Club executive lounge provides an array of exclusive privileges for its guests and is one of the best club lounges in Hong Kong.
9. Rosewood Luang Prabang
Rosewood Luang Prabang is nestled on a wild and jungly hillside on the outskirts of Luang Prabang. All ages are welcome (there is a Rose Bud’s kids club to welcome the little ones), and there is so much to enjoy at this unique resort in this UNESCO World Heritage Site in Laos.
The interiors are stunning and mix French colonial furniture with modern style. This is a small boutique hotel with just 23 rooms, including four suites. These include riverside suites, waterfall villas, and hilltop tents.
The hilltop tents are like something out of a luxurious safari, with their peaked pinnacles hidden beneath enormous trees that sit behind them. Their stilted bases raise the tents above the foliage in front, affording them incredible views, the best in the hotel.
These luxury tented rooms are unique and very private as they are reached by little well-maintained pathways that are lit by hidden nightlights stuffed between the jungly leaves. Wake to hear the birdsong as the sun rises over these mystical mountains.
Villa and suites are closer to the resort center and the main oval pool, overlooking a natural waterfall. Here you can lounge on the lawns under pretty parasols. If you like to sunbathe, go for the waterfall villas with beautiful verandas and private pools. Another option is the Riverside villas. You can actually hear the river sloshing from these rooms.
Sense Spa is a highlight of this resort and is made up of several tents under the trees. Treatments are based on traditional Laotian medicine, using organic plants, herbs, and fruits from the hotel’s own garden.
A must-do trip from Rosewood Luang Prabang is to take a quick drive to a nearby waterfall. You can jump in and swim surrounded by splashing water and jungly foliage.
10. Rosewood Washington DC
This is a superb Rosewood to choose from as it has just undergone a massive refurbishment and is re-opening this year with a new look and brand-new, everything!
Ideally located in the charming neighborhood of Georgetown, alongside the historic C&O Canal, Rosewood Washington, D.C. features 49 rooms and 12 suites, so this is very much a boutique Rosewood hotel.
In addition to its enviable location, Rosewood, Washington, D.C., overlooks the picturesque canal. The Grill Room and adjacent Rye Bar are particularly good with seasonally inspired cuisine. On the rooftop, a wraparound bar and lounge area boast a stunning indoor-outdoor swimming pool and sweeping views of the Potomac River, Washington Monument, Roosevelt Island, and the spires of Georgetown University.
Fitness and spa services, private dining and meeting venues, and a calendar of intriguing curated events and occasions round out the hotel’s remarkable offerings.
Explore the national treasures of Washington, D.C., along with remarkable shops on Wisconsin and M Streets and the Washington Harbour. The hotel is easily accessible from The Kennedy Center, the Business and Financial Districts, the Smithsonian Institute museums, the National Monument, The National Mall, and The White House.
