Marking the entrance of Hyatt Hotels in Cambodia, the Park Hyatt Siem Reap opened its doors this month after an extensive renovation of the original property. The 14-month renovation ofÂ HĂ´tel de la PaixÂ by prolific designer Bill BensleyÂ followed the announcement that it would be rebranded as a Park Hyatt property.Â Siem Reap hosts more than 2 million foreign tourists annually, but remains largely undeveloped in the luxury hotel market.
â€śWe are delighted to be opening the first Hyatt hotel in Cambodia and the first Park Hyatt in the Southeast Asia region, signifying our ongoing commitment to expansion in sought-after destinations where we know our guests are traveling,â€ť said Larry Tchou, group president, Asia Pacific, Hyatt Hotels Corporation.
The newly renovated Park Hyatt Siem Reap now has 108 guest rooms and suites, with a remodeled spa, fitness center, lap pool, and Italian marble bathrooms with rain shower in each room. Of the hotel’sÂ 13 suites, four showcase private plunge pools, creating a more intimate experience for guests.
In-house cuisine at The Dining Room features an original mix of traditional Khmer and French cuisine. Produce is sourced locally for traditional Cambodian dishes at Siem Reap markets. And following a day of trekking the city’s many temples, The Living Room lounge is a place to escape for high tea service or sunset cocktail in the evening.
