Rosewood Sand Hill is an elegant retreat and hotel located near the Santa Cruz Mountains on 16 acres of land in the famed Silicon Valley.

Inspired by the surroundings, a luxurious materials palette that echoes the area’s natural beauty includes organic textures, delicate fabric weaves, leather detailing and a lush mix of wooden finishes. The luxury suite features a bedroom, living area, walk-in closet, bathroom, and private terrace.

The intimate living area with fireplace creates a perfect space to lounge, hold meetings, and enjoy a delicious in-room dining meal. A custom-built walnut and navy lacquer bar cabinet, houses a full bar, elegant glassware, and an espresso display. Books placed throughout the room also underscore the sense of place with leather-bound editions on local flora and fauna and other books by Californian authors.

The resulting space invites visitors to relax and renew, celebrating the sense of West Coast ease and an escape from the hustle of Silicon Valley.
