Rosewood Vienna Welcomes New Managing Director

Rosewood Vienna has welcomed Roland Hamberger as new managing director. Located in Austria’s capital, Rosewood Vienna opened in August 2022. It is the fifth European property in the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts portfolio and the brand’s first in the German-speaking market. Under Hamberger’s leadership, the property aims to immerse guests in Austrian culture.

In his new role, Hamberger will oversee all aspects of the hotel. His remit extends from the hotel’s Neue Hoheit Brasserie and Bar and Salon Aurelie, to the extensive programming and a range of accommodations. He will also oversee the Asaya Spa at Rosewood Vienna, the first Asaya outside of Asia and the first stand-alone Augustinus Bader Spa.

Having spent over a decade as the general manager at Palais Coburg Hotel Residence Vienna, part of The Leading Hotels of the World, Hamberger brings extensive experience and understanding of the ultra-high-end hospitality sector. During his tenure, Roland was responsible for spearheading a comprehensive operational and financial turnaround, which included an impressive increase in gross operating profit and a substantial boost in average daily rates.

Hamberger has also held significant roles in other properties such as The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna, and the Grand Hotel Wien. He has successfully led pre-opening teams, developed robust sales strategies, and managed key stakeholder relationships across multiple properties.
