Hyatt opens its first hotel in Phnom Penh

Published on : Wednesday, January 6, 2021

Hyatt is blazing new ground in Southeast Asia with the opening of Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh on January 6, 2021, marking the first Hyatt hotel in the Cambodian capital and the debut of the Hyatt Regency brand in the Kingdom of Wonder.

With 247 guestrooms including 43 residential-style suites, the new Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh is set to become the largest internationally branded hotel in the city. Located in the heart of Phnom Penh’s cultural and business district of Doun Penh – a 30-minute drive from the airport and within a short walking distance to the Royal Palace, National Museum and the riverside – the latest addition from Hyatt provides business travelers and leisure guests with modern comfort and convenience alongside warm Cambodian hospitality in one of Asia’s most captivating cities.

“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,” said Herman Kemp, general manager, Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh. “We look forward to welcoming business and leisure guests to an energizing 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 Cambodian hospitality.”

Conceived by award-winning Singapore-based SCDA Architects and leading Thailand-based PIA Interior, the contemporary-meets-colonial interiors of the hotel reflect Cambodia’s unique history, seamlessly blending Khmer architectural accents, French colonial influences, and specially-commissioned artworks by contemporary Cambodian artist, FONKi.

As guests pull into the hotel’s driveway, they are greeted with a welcoming centerpiece: a beautiful French heritage building flanked by sweet-smelling frangipani trees. Originally built as a colonial villa in the early 20th century, the carefully restored lemon-colored Colonial House with its wooden shutters, arched doorways and terracotta-tiled roof now serves as the hotel’s entrance, providing guests with a nostalgic arrival experience.

Behind the Colonial House sits the newly-constructed 14-story main building, featuring 247 guestrooms, including 43 suites, all with hardwood floors and marble bathrooms. Starting from 328 square feet (30.5 square meters) for a standard room, the guestrooms balance modern comforts, such as complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, 65” TVs, Staycast powered by Google Chromecast systems and walk-in rainshowers, with distinct Khmer touches including an intricately carved headboard depicting Bayon Temple, one of the most celebrated temples at Angkor. Each room is also equipped with the Hyatt Mobile Entry technology, enabling guests to use their smartphone in lieu of a room key card. The 1087 square feet (101 square meters) Royal Suite features two ensuite bedrooms, a walk-in closet, a powder room, separate living and dining areas, a pantry, and floor-to-ceiling views to take in the city views.

Guests staying on level 10 and above can access the Regency Club Lounge. Privileges include exclusive check-in and check-out services as well as daily breakfast, evening canapés and complimentary drinks alongside panoramic city views with the choice of indoor or outdoor seating.
