Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh is set to launch in the Cambodian capital in early 2021, marking the brand’s first venture into one of Asia’s most dynamic cities.
With 247 guestrooms including 43 suites, the new contemporary-meets-colonial property is scheduled to open in January 2021 in the heart of Phnom Penh’s Doun Penh district with the hotel website currently taking bookings from January 15, 2021 onwards.
“Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh offers much in terms of modern comfort and convenience that travelers would look for in a five-star city hotel,” says Herman Kemp, general manager of Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh. “Not to mention an unbeatable location that’s within easy walking distance to the Royal Palace, National Museum and riverside.”
Conceived by award-winning, Singapore-based SCDA Architects and Thailand-based PIA Interior, the hotel’s centerpiece is a restored French heritage building known as the Colonial House. Rumoured to have been built as a royal residence for a princess in the early 1900s, the architects have gone to great lengths to restore the villa, which now serves as the property’s main entrance and lobby.
Meanwhile, the interiors of the hotel will reflect Cambodia’s diverse heritage, blending Khmer architectural accents, French colonial influences, and specially-commissioned artworks by contemporary Cambodian artist, FONKi.
Facilities at Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh include an outdoor tropical infinity pool, a 24-hour fitness centre, 1,400 square metres of meeting and event space, including the Regency Ballroom. The hotel will also have a world-class spa, Jivapita Spa, offering a range of bespoke body and facial treatments.
