From Paris to Phuket, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is in the midst of an aggressive expansion- set to double its portfolio by 2020. The Hong Kong-based luxury hotel group currently operates 18 high-end properties in 11 countries with 17 new hotels in development. We recently reported about a new Hong Kong hotel scheduled for 2018, along with a new management appointment at the Hotel de Crillon, slated to reopen in Paris next year under Rosewood management. In more buzzworthy news for the brand, Rosewood Phuket is prepping to open in Q2 2017. This will be Rosewood’s first resort in southeast Asia.

What’s in store on Thailand’s largest island? Rosewood Phuket will have 71 villas and 32 residences nestled on one of Phuket's “last secluded beaches”—Emerald Bay. According to the official press release, landscape designers are carefully preserving 150-year-old banyan trees in the surrounding 40-acre forest; landscaped rooftops will blend in naturally with the hillside forest, while also helping with energy conservation.

Facilities will include four restaurants, Sense, A Rosewood Spa with six spa villas, swimming pools, a yoga pavilion, a gym, and a children’s club. There will also be a wedding pavilion which can accommodate up to 100 guests.
