Hyatt will open its first hotel in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh next year, located in the city’s Doun Penh district.
Business Traveller first reported on plans for the Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh back in 2016, and the group has now given a scheduled opening date for the property of the first quarter of 2021.
The 247-room hotel combines a colonial style building with a modern tower, and is within walking distance of the city’s Royal Palace and National Museum.
The property has been designed by Singapore-based SCDA Architects, with interiors which “reflect Cambodia’s diverse heritage, seamlessly blending Khmer architectural accents, French colonial influences, and specially-commissioned artworks by contemporary Cambodian artist, Fonki”.
Features will include Five Five Rooftop Restaurant and Bar with views of the Mekong River, speakeasy-style bar The Attic, 1,400 sqm of meeting space, a Regency Club lounge, fitness centre, tropical infinity pool and spa.
The hotel will join the existing Park Hyatt Siem Reap as the second property by the group in Cambodia.
