With the establishment of Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh last 6th of January, the global Hyatt Regency brand has debuted its first Hyatt hotel in Cambodia’s city centre. It is marked to be the city’s largest international hotel, with 247 guestrooms and 43 residential-style suites.

The hotel is well-located in the cultural and business district of Doun Penh, with favourable access to the airport, the Royal Palace, National Museum, and the riverside. The brand-new establishment is sure to offer business and leisure guests with cultural hospitality, as well as contemporary tranquility.

Herman Kemp, general manager of Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh, said: “We are excited to open our doors and introduce the Hyatt Regency brand to Cambodia, supporting the country’s hospitality industry as well as reinforcing Hyatt’s steady and thoughtful growth in Southeast Asia.”

“We look forward to welcoming business and leisure guests to an energising new space where they can recharge, discover locally-inspired culinary experiences, and stay connected during a stress-free travel experience, all delivered with the warm comfort of Cambodia hospitality,” Kemp added.

The hotel’s interior demonstrates Cambodia’s distinctive history with the French, with designs reflecting both contemporary and colonial influences. These were envisaged by award-winning Singapore-based SCDA Architects who designed GCNM Towers, which won the Best High Rise Residential Architectural Design accolade at the PropertyGuru Indonesia Property Awards 2016. Teaming up with them is leading Thailand-based PIA Interior design firm, who are the design masterminds behind another award-winning project ANIL Sathorn 12 that nabbed the Best Luxury Condo Development (Bangkok) title at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2019. Design and guestrooms also include specially-commissioned artworks by FONKi, a renowned contemporary Cambodian artist.

Alongside modern quarters and French heritage buildings, guests can dine from a variety of five dining venues. From the early 20th century metro-themed bar Metropole Underground to the hotel’s social hotspot Five Rooftop Restaurant & Bar, the new Hyatt Regency is assured to serve every need.

On top of that, Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh features 1,400 square metres of meeting and event space, including an extensive range of recreational facilities such as an outdoor infinity pool, a 24-hour fully-equipped gym, and the Jivapita spa that offers their signature ‘Khmer Indigenous Therapy’ massage.

Hyatt’s health and hygiene are guided by its Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment that boosts its operational guidance and resources to ensure staff and guest safety.
