ROSEWOOD ROUNDUP
The latest happenings in the high-end hotel world


From Mexico to the Far East, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts manages luxe properties on five continents. Here’s what’s new:

TOKYO: After a recent $4.5 million “wardrobe change,” the Hotel Seiyo Ginza rings Rosewood through and through. Located in the re-nowned Ginza district, all 77 rooms give a private-residence feel, with bamboo, silk, and leather accents. Hate to unpack, iron, or cook? Enter Hotel Seiyo Ginza’s round-the-clock butler, concierge, and room services. Rooms from $230. 011-81-33-535-1111, www.seiyo-ginza.com

LOS CABOS, MEXICO: If you’re bummed that summer’s almost over, head for Las Ventanas Al Paraiso (pictured) in Los Cabos, where summer is in high season (at lower rates) through October 15. A golfer’s spa program preps you for the links of La Querencia through focus, stretching, and visualization techniques. Sample the sumptuous beach barbecues or chill out in-room with personalized aromatherapy
options. From $375. 011-52-624-144-0300, www.lasventanas.com

NEW YORK CITY: The famous Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle Hotel is fresh from a makeover, providing a new must-stop spot in NYC. Named for Ludwig Bemelmans, author of the Madeline children’s books, the bar features whimsical wall murals created by the writer in payment for his many nights in residence. Try the Bemelmans Barter, made of cognac, curaçao, pineapple, and bitters, which celebrates the association. Rooms from $495. (212) 744-1600, www.thecarlyle.com
