The Asaya wellness facility is a substantial upgrade over the ordinary urban hotel spa, with a program imported from the Rosewood Phuket, as well as a pool and an expansive fitness center. And in keeping with its maximalist ethos, the Rosewood Hong Kong features no fewer than eight food and beverage venues, from the upscale Legacy House to the Butterfly Patisserie and the chic Darkside, a nightspot featuring live jazz and aged spirits, playfully named for Kowloon’s local nickname.
