Located near the gates of one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia, the Rosewood Siem Reap weaves local, cultural, architectural, and archaeological themes into a modern oasis of luxury.
From the entry gates, guests journey through interconnected lush courtyards, serene bodies of water, and exclusive residences. Several layers of enclosures form a series of walls, thresholds, galleries, courtyards, moats, and plinths that designate different levels of exclusivity, creating a sense of formality upon arrival. The site comprises a luxury hotel, five-story residential villas, and the “Village,” an active urban edge with a retail spine that connects the exclusive resort to the greater city.
The site symbolically recalls several historical Angkor principles while blending with Rosewood’s legacy of ultra-luxury design to create a private sanctuary of diverse, unique experiences. Inspired by Rosewood’s Sense of Place philosophy, the Rosewood Resort in Siem Reap marks the beginning of a unique cultural journey from within the exclusive compound to the temples of Angkor Wat. Abundant water features and private gardens celebrate the beauty of the local landscape, while the central plinth is emblematic of the mountain-temples found within the Angkor site. The fabric of the hotel is derived from a blend of Khmer ancient architecture and Rosewood’s legacy of luxurious, residential-style hotels. Together they create a one-of-a-kind experience in one of the world’s most desired destinations.
