HONG KONG, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --  Rosewood Hotel Group is pleased to announce that its chief executive officer Sonia Cheng has today been honored on Bloomberg Businessweek's 2018 Bloomberg 50, the publication's annual list of icons and innovators who have changed the global business landscape this year. Having debuted in 2017, the distinguished Bloomberg 50 list recognizes executives, entrepreneurs, experts and entertainers across a variety of fields, from finance and politics to tech and entertainment, who have actively affected their respective industries in 2018.

Rosewood Hotel Group CEO Sonia Cheng

"It is an honor to be included on this year's Bloomberg 50 list alongside so many incredible trailblazers who are revolutionizing their industries and business overall," says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. "This is an incredibly exciting time for luxury hospitality, with access, interest and expectations for travel growing at a tremendous rate, and I am humbled by the positive market and guest feedback to Rosewood's differentiated and modern approach to the ultra-luxury space."

As the chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group, Sonia Cheng is responsible for the overall vision and the global expansion of Rosewood Hotel Group, one of the world's fastest growing hotel companies that encompasses 63 hotels in 22 countries, with over 40 additional hotels over the next five years across its four distinct brands: Rosewood ® Hotels & Resorts, New World™ Hotels & Resorts, penta ®hotels, and its latest brand, KHOS™. Since becoming CEO in 2011, Cheng has led Rosewood Hotel Group to widespread acclaim, growing the portfolio by 50% and expanding into new territories in cultural capitals and resort destinations alike.

2018 has been a pivotal year for the group as it consolidates its position as one of the most dynamic hospitality companies in the industry with its ultra-luxury Rosewood Hotels & Resorts brand continuing its considered global expansion with four new/renovated properties in exotic destinations, and as it prepares for the opening of an additional five properties in 2019, including the highly-anticipated Rosewood Hong Kong slated to open March 17 on Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour. Additional recent accomplishments include the establishment of KHOS, an innovative concept for business hotels with a distinct lifestyle orientation; the launch of Asaya, a holistic wellness concept rooted in the belief of self-acceptance and self-discovery; and Rosewood Explorers, a new and differentiated children's club concept designed to inspire creativity and social responsibility through fun and adventure. Through these achievements, in addition to the impressive track-record of new hotel openings and deal signings such as that of the recently-renovated and reopened HĂ´tel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris and the former American Embassy in London's Grosvenor Square and the development of brand-wide initiatives that appeal to the modern traveler, Cheng has revitalized the beloved Rosewood into a contemporary luxury brand that is top of mind for today's affluent consumer.    

Sonia Cheng's inclusion on the 2018 Bloomberg 50 list represents the latest in a long line of awards and accolades that the hotel group and its chief executive officer have been recognized with in 2018. Additional honors awarded to Sonia Cheng this year include coveted spots on Fast Company's Most Creative People in Business list and Fortune's 40 Under 40 list, both of which recognize visionary and influential leaders whose accomplishments have impacted their industries and the international business sphere at large. 2018 also marks the year when Architectural Digest (China) named her one of their People of the Year, and Conde Nast Traveler (China) included her in their annual Movers and Shakers list of the industry's 10 most influential and transformative leaders.

Beyond accolades earned by Cheng, the ultra-luxury Rosewood Hotels & Resorts collection and its 24 hotels worldwide have received immense recognition from the most reputable authorities in the travel and hospitality industry. From top-tier publications including Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure to consumer-driven resources such as Trip Advisor, Rosewood's distinct properties and their luxurious amenities have consistently ranked amongst the best in the world.
