Marriott International is set to introduce the Le Méridien brand to Cambodia’s coastal city of Sihanoukville come January 2022.
The outcome of a partnership with Cambodia’s Grand Lion Group, the 388-room Le Méridien will form part of Gold Coast at Sihanouville – a US$200 million, 1.7ha hotel and residential complex located 17km from the airport.
The hotel component will comprise an all-day dining/open kitchen concept restaurant, a specialty restaurant, a rooftop bar with views of the ocean and outlying islands, fitness centre, wellness spa, meeting rooms and ballroom accommodating 400 pax, as well as an oceanfront beach club with infinity pools, restaurant and bar.
The development is scheduled to break ground in January 2019 and open in January 2022.
Chairman and CEO of the Grand Lion Group, Lundy Nath, commented: “With the increasing growth in visitation to Cambodia, the time is ripe for us to introduce a global hospitality brand in Sihanoukville. Gold Coast at Sihanoukville will complement the Courtyard by Marriott Siem Reap and the nearby Angkor Archaeological Park by providing an extended stay for guests to explore another dimension of Cambodia.
“This mega project aims to be among the first to open a new chapter in luxury beach destination experiences in Sihanoukville.”
