As the world locked down in response to the coronavirus pandemic, many battened down the hatches to wait for the storm to pass. Others, like Niamh O’Connell, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ group vice-president of wellness and brand experience, decided to face the challenge head-on.
Applying 26 years of hospitality wisdom and leadership, O’Connell viewed the unfolding crisis as a “once in a lifetime opportunity to press the reset button” and brought together her dedicated wellness team to supercharge Rosewood’s newly launched Asaya wellness concept.
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts currently manages an ultra-luxurious portfolio of 28 properties in 15 countries, with 19 further new hotels under development. Its ground-breaking wellness concept, Asaya, debuted in October 2019 with the opening of Asaya Hong Kong at the Rosewood Hong Kong. Set over two floors and offering 3,716sqm of dedicated indoor-outdoor space, this urban haven offers a wealth of curated wellness experiences delivered by expert practitioners to residents, day guests and an exclusive city membership.
