Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by Cambodia-based property developer Vattanac Properties to manage Rosewood Siem Reap, scheduled to open in 2019.
It will be the second Rosewood property in Cambodia, following Rosewood Phnom Penh opening in 2016, also owned by Vattanac Properties, and marks Rosewood’s ninth hotel management agreement in Asia.
The property will be situated in the heart of Siem Reap, within six kilometres of the fabled Angkor Wat temple complex and UNESCO World Heritage site, with the Royal Gardens, National Museum, Floating Village, Phsar Chas market and other cultural attractions close by.
Modern Khmer architecture and abundant indigenous materials will be featured in 135 guestrooms at a minimum size of 60 square meters, all with balconies, and 15 standalone villas.
All villas will feature individual pools and landscaped terraces and the largest three-bedroom villas will feature 280-square-meter interiors.
Also showcased will be a free-standing Manor Club villa, a tranquil private space with reception and lounge offered exclusively to villa guests.
Rosewood Siem Reap will offer five restaurants and bars with outdoor terraces, including a bistro, a poolside bar and restaurant, a destination bar, a library lounge and a specialty restaurant.
“We are delighted to anticipate our second property in Cambodia, providing the Rosewood customer a link between the charm of the capital and the culturally rich destination of Siem Reap,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group.
“We’re very grateful for the confidence of Vattanac properties to manage two such significant new properties in the country.”
Rosewood Siem Reap will join sister property Rosewood Phnom Penh, opening in 2016.
