Capping off an exciting year full of distinctions and achievements, Rosewood Phnom Penh invites guests to enjoy festive culinary journeys, dazzling desserts, and gourmet gifts this holiday.
Heading into the final month of the year, Rosewood Phnom Penh is pleased to reflect on a momentous 2022 underscored by prestigious accolades and successful new endeavors. To celebrate these epic moments together, the ultra-luxury hotel invites guests to enjoy spectacular festivities brimming with delicious cuisine and quality time together.
In the true holiday spirit, Rosewood Phnom Penh will deck the halls with stunning adornments, from LED-lit reindeer sculptures to glowing orbs, sparkling vertical garlands, red velvet accents, and dozens of radiant Christmas trees. In this magical setting, guests will encounter unforgettable visits with Santa, live music, and surprises all season long.
Savor Delicious Memories
Since its opening in 2018, Rosewood Phnom Penh has raised the bar for dining, drinking, wellness, and hospitality in Cambodia – and the efforts have garnered worldwide attention. In October, the hotel was honored to be included among the “Top 10 Hotels in Southeast Asia” by Conde Nast Traveler’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards for the fourth consecutive year.
In a nod to the hotel’s strength as a culinary destination, Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia crowned steakhouse Cuts “Cambodia’s Best Restaurant”. The elegant steak and seafood grill also earned a coveted spot on this year’s “50 Best Discovery” list by World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
This festive season, diners will be immersed in the warm service, flavors, and execution that have earned Rosewood Phnom Penh restaurants top honors year after year. On December 24 and 25, Cuts will serve a special six-course menu featuring dishes like Australian Tajima Wagyu Carpaccio and Canadian Lobster Ravioli, followed by an equally indulgent New Year’s Eve set dinner on December 31.
Meanwhile, Brasserie Louis will present a Festive Brunch on Christmas Day brimming with Cambodian and French entrées, a decadent Christmas dinner menu, and a New Year’s Eve feast, so diners can celebrate new beginnings with delicacies such as Scallop Ceviche with Gazpacho and Caviar, Pan-Seared Foie Gras, and Lobster and Celeriac Cannelloni. Ideal for families, the Living Room will host a merry and bright afternoon tea alongside gingerbread house decorating workshops and live saxophone and string performances.
Unleash New Energy for the New Year
Rosewood Phnom Penh has become a destination for holistic well-being and a sanctuary of serenity in the vibrant capital. Renowned for luxurious wellness journeys rooted in ancient Khmer traditions, Sense A Rosewood Spa was named “Best Hotel Spa in Cambodia” in 2022 by the World Spa Awards – the world’s leading authority on wellness. From the grounding Angkor massage to the traditional Chol Mlob skin cleanse, a Rosewood spa treatment is the perfect way to rejuvenate and recharge ahead of the new year.
For those seeking an evening of celebratory energy, Sora Sky Bar is the place to be at countdown time. Having recently welcomed Bob Louison as the new Director of Bars, our storied sky bar will usher in the new year in style with an epic countdown party. World-class performers on KlapYaHandz – Cambodia’s pioneering independent record label, which marries hip-hop, reggae, rock ‘n’ roll, soul, and Golden Age Cambodian pop hits – will take the stage while guests welcome 2023 on the dance floor.
Bring Rosewood Home for the Holidays
The festivities continue online, too. As we embark on the next step of our journey, we are proud to announce the launch of our e-commerce platform. Supporting deliveries within Phnom Penh, our new online shop allows guests to purchase Patisserie’s artfully decorated holiday cakes and hampers with ease. You can also buy thoughtful “Sense of Experiences” vouchers to spoil loved ones with gourmet Sunday brunches, deluxe pedicures, or suites, and spa escapes.
Starting on December 1, we will launch our third-annual online advent calendar on Facebook, unveiling a new surprise, such as discounts on Sense of Experience vouchers or complimentary cocktails, every day for all visitors to enjoy. There will also be one lucky draw winner per day, who will be rewarded with a luxurious dining experience, wellness treatment, or getaway at Rosewood Phnom Penh.
On the ground floor of the hotel’s building, Vattanac Capital Mall, visitors can shop for an array of luxurious hampers and artful sweets at our Patisserie Pop-Up. Throughout December, the dazzling scene comes alive with Santa’s sleighs, crimson display cases, and a snow-white trolley showcasing our tastefully curated hampers. A thoughtful gift for friends, family, and colleagues, these bountiful baskets brim with premium seasonal delights, such as gingerbread, caramel and nut tarts, mixed fruit cakes, Christmas cookies, bonbons, and stollen.
“As Rosewood Phnom Penh continues to redefine luxury while honoring Cambodian culture, we look forward to celebrating the end of a tremendous year with our valued guests,” says Rosewood Phnom Penh Managing Director Daniel Simon.
He added, “The festive season marks a time to remember all that we have accomplished together in 2022 and aim even higher next year. We thank our guests for their continued support and wish them an unforgettable holiday.”
