Rosewood Brings the Warm Bahamian Heart to Beat in Beijing


 May 2, 2018

Ever at home to the unconventional, Rosewood Beijing now plays host to the jewel of the Caribbean, The Bahamas, in a world-class cultural exchange with the soon-to-open Rosewood Baha Mar. It is an exciting time for Rosewood Beijing to partner with The Bahamas Embassy forecasting the vibrant spirit, music, flavors and personality of this exclusive Caribbean paradise, and home to Rosewood Baha Mar Resort.

Beyond creating a mere novelty entertainment experience, through the alignment of sibling properties and the partnership with the Embassy of The Bahamas and The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is facilitating a new international exchange, enabling the very heart of The Bahamas to beat within Beijing in a way that has never been felt before.

On the establishment of this mutually rewarding partnership, Bahamian Ambassador H.E. Robert Sterling L. Quant said: “We at the Embassy truly look forward to Rosewood's presence in The Bahamas, which has been long anticipated, enhancing the high-end resort luxury experience that the company is known for.  We certainly are looking to boost the number of visitors from China to The Bahamas and vice versa, through the efforts of Rosewood, The Bahamas Embassy and our tourism partners such as Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation and AVIAREPS, working in close collaboration. We hope that this relationship between Rosewood and The Bahamas grows from strength to strength.”

At the center of this charming diplomatic overture is the charismatic Bahamian singer, songwriter, and producer Julien Believe. Believe is bringing his signature talent, humility and irresistible swagger into play as he performs a set of his infectious songs, soulfully and solely within Rosewood Beijing. Believe’s 30-minute set is sure to demonstrate the underlying passion and vivacity of Bahamian culture that is the heart of his music, leaving listeners in no doubt as to why he has already taken his small nation, the Caribbean and soon, the world, by storm.


Aside from Julien Believe’s inimitable performance, embassy guests and dignitaries will be served with a cocktail reception and canapés inspired by the rich flavors of The Bahamas, including Grouper Fingers, in the evocatively named “Calypso Sauce” as well as a zesty Pineapple Scallop Ceviche.

Altogether it serves as a stimulating introduction to the bold heartbeat of Baha Mar Resort. And, as if the earth’s tectonic plates themselves have shifted, Rosewood Resorts & Hotels are now bringing urban Beijing and tropical Baha Mar significantly, and irrevocably, closer. As the Bahamian heat begins to be felt right here, Rosewood is ushering in a new way to enjoy ultra-luxury experiences, in Beijing, Baha Mar and beyond.
