Rosewood Phnom Penh
At 39 storeys high, Rosewood Phnom Penh stands proud as the tallest hotel in town. The sleek property is part of the iconic Vattanac Capital Tower, which has been fittingly designed to look like the arched back of a rising dragon oriented toward the East, and offers striking panoramic views over the city and the remarkable Mekong River beyond. Ideally located in the heart of the capital’s cultural and business centre, this hotel is particularly convenient and provides an indulgent stay right amid the buzz of the city.
Designed as a curated mansion, the smart property weaves Cambodian touches into its contemporary yet subtle interior design. This tasteful style continues into all of the 175 comfortable rooms, including 36 well-appointed suites, and is complimented by the beautifully furnished en-suites as well as the sweeping cityscape views seen through the vast floor-to-ceiling windows. Arguably the best spot to enjoy these staggering vistas is from the vibrant rooftop bar, ‘Sora’, and its inviting terrace. We highly recommend treating yourself to an evening drink at the stylish whisky bar here while watching the sun go down over the capital.
Unwind after a day of sightseeing by embracing the other indulgent amenities at this hotel: from the 20-metre lap pool offering panoramic views to the tranquil on-site spa, ‘Sense’, which comes complete with treatments using traditional Khmer traditional healing herbs. If you are feeling in need of something a little more active, the fitness center is fully equipped and is open 24 hours for guests to use at their own convenience.
You can choose between a variety of dining options while staying here: dine at the main restaurant, Brasserie Louis, for a great selection of the finest French comfort food and regional Cambodian favourites; at the highest restaurant, ‘Cuts’, for a more relaxed atmosphere, or at Iza for an ‘izakaya’-style dining experience.
Not only do we recommend this welcoming cutting-edge hotel to couples and solo travellers, but we also believe it is a great choice for families too, for it offers child-friendly service and ‘Rose Buds’ - a specially designed programme that treats young guests to their own comforts, cuisine and activities to make them feel equally as spoiled.
