Hyatt Regency Set to Open in Phnom Penh

Hyatt Regency will debut in the Cambodian capital in early 2021, with the opening of the Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh.

With 247 guestrooms including 43 suites, the new contemporary-meets-colonial property is scheduled to open in January in the heart of Phnom Penh’s Doun Penh district.

Conceived by award-winning, Singapore-based SCDA Architects and Thailand-based PIA Interior, the hotel’s centerpiece is a beautifully restored French heritage building known as the Colonial House. Rumored 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, seamlessly blending Khmer architectural accents, French colonial influences, and specially-commissioned artworks by contemporary Cambodian artist, FONKi.

Guests will have a choice of five dining venues including The Attic, an old world speakeasy-style bar that sits tucked away in the eaves of the Colonial House, as well as a stunning indoor/outdoor open-plan dining concept called FiveFive Rooftop Restaurant & Bar, where diners can enjoy Instagram-worthy views of the Phnom Penh skyline alongside refreshing cocktails and lively DJ performances.

Facilities at Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh include an outdoor tropical infinity pool, a 24-hour fitness centre, 1,400 square meters 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. Moreover, guests staying on the hotel’s Club floors will have access to the Regency Club Lounge, which includes daily breakfast, evening canapés, and drinks, as well as a private terrace.

“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.”
