Rosewood Phnom Penh is an ultra-luxury property which will redefine hospitality experience in the Cambodian capital. Prominently located in the heart of the capital’s Central Business District along Preah Monivong Boulevard, this world-class commercial complex will also include Grade-A offices and Cambodia’s first luxury retail mall. Rosewood Phnom Penh will offer a panoramic view of the city and the fabled Mekong River from its position within the tallest building in the capital, whose architectural form takes the fluid shape of a rising dragon oriented towards the East.
Rosewood Phnom Penh will feature 148 rooms and suites which will be amongst the largest hotel guestrooms in Phnom Penh. There will be an additional 27 luxury serviced residences for long-stay visitors to the Cambodian capital. Dining options will include a 120-seat bistro, a 60-seat lobby lounge, two specialty restaurants and a sky bar on a cantilevered terrace. Recreational facilities will feature Rosewood’s signature Sense® spa with five treatment rooms, a 20-meter swimming pool on the 33rd floor and a fully equipped fitness center. Meeting facilities will include The Pavilion residential-style meeting and function space and multi-functional meeting rooms. Guided by Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy, the property’s interior will be designed by Melbourne-based BARstudio for the public areas and guestrooms together with Japan-based Bond Design Studio for the food and beverage spaces.
Amanemu embraces the ancient Japanese bathing tradition of onsen, using nutrient-rich thermal springs to provide a contemplative and restorative retreat set among serene natural surroundings. It is set within Ise-Shima National Park on the Kii Peninsula, in the southwestern region of the island of Honshu. The resort overlooks Ago Bay, known as the Bay of Pearls – a blue expanse dotted with oyster rafts and islets. Ancient pilgrimage routes wind through forests, and some of Japan’s most sacred shrines are within easy reach – including Geku Shrine, dedicated to the deity of clothing, food, and shelter, and Naiku Shrine, devoted to the goddess of the sun. Guided by a classical Japanese aesthetic, Amanemu’s Suites and Villas are replete with natural materials and large glass windows, with woven textile and timber sliding shutters that open to embrace the natural surroundings.
The Silo is a magical space towering above the V&A Waterfront surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City. The Silo is being built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying 6 floors above what will become the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA). The building has been designed by Thomas Heatherwick, Founder and Principal of the London-based Heatherwick Studio. Heatherwick Studio was tasked with the transformation of the elevator house and the adjacent storage annex of 6 rows of 7 silos while carefully retaining its cultural significance and creating a building that will be as synonymous with the Cape Town skyline as the Eiffel Tower is to Paris. The Silo will have 28 rooms, including a spectacular penthouse. Each room will be individually designed and decorated by the stylish wand of Liz Biden. Colourful and eclectic pieces will juxtapose the modern, industrial architecture.
