Rosewood Phnom Penh opens today, nestled in the iconic 39-story Vattanac Capital Tower prominently located in the central cultural and business district along Preah Monivong Boulevard.
At 188 meters high, atop the tallest building in the Cambodian capital, the hotel boasts breath-taking 360o views of the city and offers leisure and business travellers to the city a stately vantage point to witness the revival of what is already considered one of the most charming capitals in south-east Asia.
Specially created introductory experiences offer varied ways for guests to experience the dynamism of Phnom Penh.
“With its rich history and dynamic future, Phnom Penh is an ideal place to expand the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts brand and this debut represents an important milestone in our global growth,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group.
“With the ever-increasing desire for authentic travel experiences among affluent explorers, Rosewood Phnom Penh satisfies this urge while also giving us the opportunity to raise our flag in one of Asia’s most fascinating cities.”
Designed by Melbourne’s BAR Studio, with two restaurants created by Tokyo-based Bond Design Studio, the interior of the ultra-luxury hotel aims to capture the essence of the country with a blend of Khmer architectural aspects, the country’s French colonial heritage and Cambodian craft techniques, all embraced by a subtle classic-meets-contemporary style.
“Phnom Penh fuses the majesty of the past with the pulse of the present and the promise of the future,” said hotel managing director Daniel Grau.
For travellers experiencing the vibe of Phnom Penh, Rosewood Phnom Penh is the ideal base to become immersed into the vigour of the city.
The iconic landmarks of The Royal Palace, National Museum, Central Market, Wat Phnom, the art street, riverside and the central business district are all conveniently located nearby.
The hotel’s residential-style guestrooms are among the largest in Phnom Penh, with a total of 175 rooms including 37 suites.
Their design includes large, round, window-facing tables that double as dining or work spaces, inviting guests to soak in vistas of the city skyline and tranquil Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers.
Guestrooms at Rosewood Phnom Penh start from a spacious 50-square-meter Executive Room to the signature Norodom House at 225 square meters.
