Visually stunning, an architectural marvel, Rosewood Bangkok was one of the iconic brand's latest offspring. And for a hospitality household that always strives to reflect the local culture and spirit of a destination, opening in a city brimming with traditions like Bangkok, was nothing short of an exciting challenge. StickyRice was selected among 8 other agencies to design, produce and launch Rosewood's latest creative social media campaign. Needless to say we had quite a few ideas in mind.
Right off the bat, what struck us was the immense contrast that separated such a serene, peaceful brand from a bustling and -at times- chaotic city. Snapping a few cool shots and branding Rosewood as the new hip place to lay around was not going to cut it. We needed more. We needed a true storytelling. That's when it hit us. Let's not fake a marriage destined to fail, but instead embrace that opposition, take pride in diversity and make it irresistible. Don't we say "opposites attract"?
We had our angle.
From exquisite Pool Suites to Chef-led Restaurants, it was all about associating the Rosewood Bangkok brand with a one-of-a-kind experience, blending culture and sophistication to redefine the notion of modern luxury. Key was to appeal to a local audience while generating top-of-mind notoriety towards a regional/international crowd, anticipating borders reopening, through engaging, vibrant and bold content.

Let's take things up a notch
Keeping in mind one of the main challenges of the campaign, our content needed to be used across social media while being able to maintain Rosewood' sophisticated standards. This meant being creative, edgy but not over-the-top. In that regard, our proposal included a set of short animations, designed to reflect the brand's contemporary vision while engaging with a younger crowd.
