phnom penh will welcome a new hyatt regency hotel

Construction has began on a 250-room Hyatt Regency Hotel in central Phnom Penh, the product of a partnership between the U.S. chain and Cambodian conglomerate Chip Mong Group.


The 50-metre-high hotel will be located across from the National Museum and marks another entry into Cambodia’s crowded luxury hotel market, which already features Sofitel, Cambodiana, Raffles and Sokha hotels.


The hotel will be Hyatt’s second in the country, with the first located in Siem Reap, and is expected to open in 2020.
