After several delays, Rosewood Phnom Penh is finally about to open its doors

Phnom Penh continues to climb to the top of travellers’ must-visit destinations. With that, the city’s hospitality industry is booming and Rosewood is the latest to announce that they’ll be opening a luxury hotel in the Cambodian capital.

The Rosewood Phnom Penh will occupy the top 14 floors of the stunning 39-storey Vattanac Capital Tower, which has panoramic views of the city and the Mekong River. The skyscraper also has Gold Certification in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

“Cambodia is a location with great potential for tourism that is currently developing at a fast rate,” says Hanny Wahyuni Gunawan, communications director at Rosewood Phnom Penh, adding, “in addition to the increasing amount of many famous services being imported from foreign countries, which in turn, lifts the country’s reputation, as well as the improving infrastructure.”
