Boasting 360-degree views of the Cambodian capital, the ultra-luxurious property features four dining experiences and the brand’s signature Sense Spa.
The sky’s the limit for the just-opened Rosewood Phnom Penh, which occupies the top 14 floors of the 188-meter-high, 39-story Vattanac Capital Tower One.
Boasting panoramic views of the city as well as the Mekong River, the hotel is poised to be the perfect base for exploring all that Phnom Penh has to offer. In fact, it is located within walking distance of sights like the Royal Palace, National Museum, and Central Market.
Designed by Melbourne’s BAR Studio, the hotel’s look is classic-meets-contemporary with elements that draw on Khmer architecture, Cambodian craftsmanship, and the country’s French colonial legacy.
Here are three highlights of this new property:
1. Incredibly spacious rooms
Guests will be spoilt for choice by 175 residential-style rooms and suites that are among the largest in Phnom Penh. Ranging from 50-square-meter Executive Rooms to the Norodom House at 225 square meters, guest quarters feature bespoke bath amenities by Christophe Laudamiel, Frette bed linens, fully stocked private bars, and views over the city or the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers through floor-to-ceiling windows.
2. Delightful dining experiences
The hotel boasts four dining venues, spanning Asian, Japanese, and European cuisines. Located on level 35, Brasserie Louis serves French classic dishes and Cambodian favorites with a side of panoramic vistas. For something more casual, head to The Living Room, a residential-like retreat great for midday cocktails and snacks. Lovers of Japanese cuisine can enjoy a lively robata-yaki meal at Iza, an izakaya-style restaurant. Those seeking an even more elevated experience can head to Sora (“sky” in Japanese) on level 37—perched on a cantilevered terrace high above Monivong Boulevard, it’s the most vertiginous bar in town.
3. Wellness and spa
Leave your worries behind when you check into Sense, a Rosewood Spa, which uses products inspired by Khmer traditional healing herbs. Here, specially trained therapists combine ancient and modern techniques in treatments that will help to restore and revitalize one’s body and mind. Those looking to maintain their healthy regime can also take advantage of the fitness center, which has cardiovascular, strengthening, and weight-training equipment.
From now until July 31, 2018, the hotel is offering introductory offers including the “A Sense of Place” package priced from US$260 per room per night and the “Mekong Indulgence” package priced from US$1,200 per room per night.
