Bay of Lights

The Bay of Lights is a world-class township set to rise in Ream City, the massive urban development in Sihanoukville.

Sprawling over 934 hectares of coastal land, the Bay of Lights encompasses opulent residences, bustling commercial areas and vibrant entertainment spots, all woven into greenery.

The Bay of Lights is made up of nine districts: Gateway, Riverside, Golf, CBD, Marina, Downtown East, Downtown West, South, and Seagate, catering to diverse facets of life and harmonising into a vibrant community where everyone can thrive.

The project is designed according to a pioneering Holonic concept, dividing the township into self-sufficient microcosms of the larger cityscape. Woven into the urban tapestry, each holon is characterised by intelligent, eco-friendly designs with green roofs, vertical gardens, and open interiors adorned with locally sourced materials and propelled by smart technologies.

Meanwhile, modern mobility systems, including cable cars, e-buses, marinas, water and air taxis, and more, seamlessly connect people in the township.

At the heart of the megaproject is the Bay of Lights Business Center, set to open in 2024. The centre redefines the concept of a sales gallery, providing an immersive visual experience of spectacular cityscapes.

Nestled strategically in the heart of the city, Bay of Lights is within proximity of key investment hubs such as the Sihanoukville Special Economic Zone, the Phnom PenhSihanouk Expressway, and the Sihanoukville International Airport, which reinforces Bay of Lights’ appeal to both local and international tourists and investors, pledging to make a bold statement in the thriving saga of Sihanoukville.
