Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra Celebrates Grand Opening March 29

Monday, March 21, 2011

Traditional Khmer music, Buddhist monks, Cambodia's deputy prime minister and apsaras will help announce the grand opening of one of Southeast Asia's most anticipated new hotels March 29 as the Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra makes its debut.

The hotel takes the stage in Phnom Penh as the first new five-star hotel to open in the capital in more than a decade. Its eight restaurants and bars, expansive meetings facilities, spa, sports club and executive lounge herald an emergence of sorts for a city that's seen more stasis than dynamism in recent years.

That, says the hotel's General Manager Didier Lamoot, is about to change.

"We're on the cusp of something here," said Lamoot. "Not only with respect to Phnom Penh as a destination, but how people travel, why they travel and when. The lines are blurring between leisure and business travel, and this hotel was built to accommodate new demands by today's guests."

Located on the banks of a canal, with panoramic views of both the Mekong River and the Bassac, the Sofitel defies easy identification as one kind of hotel or another. Its 45-meter swimming pool, ample pool decks and ambitious So Spa, a wellness concept that debuted in London last year, tempt the resort-minded.

Meanwhile, the hotel’s executive quarters, Club Millésime, and its 1,800 square-meter ballroom are lures to corporate business. Indeed, the hotel was put to the test during the recent ASEAN Travel Forum during a sit-down dinner for 1,200.

"I'm not sure where else in Southeast Asia you can accommodate as many people," said Lamoot. "Though we only started receiving guests in the middle of December, we now know what it's like to be fully booked. And it feels good."

The USD 50 million hotel development is third in a group that includes the Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra, where Lamoot served as general manager for five years, and the Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra. The Siem Reap (Angkor) property in particular has won international acclaim as one of the finest resorts in Southeast Asia.

The hotel's cityside front nestles against Phnom Penh's charming old French quarter, itself in the midst of a district-wide residential makeover. Within walking distance is the Royal Palace, the National Museum and Sisowath Quay, one of Southeast Asia's most accessible and attractive waterfront café scenes.

Accommodation ranges across seven classes, from 121 Superior rooms to 45 Luxury, 23 Junior Suites, 11 Prestige Suites and one Opera Suite. Wooden floors, glass-walled baths and classic appointments distinguish every option. More than 150 of the hotel's rooms overlook the Mekong.

In the hotel's majestic lobby, Le Bar whets the appetite for the myriad food and beverage opportunities beyond. The possibilities span a range of culinary traditions and styles. La Coupole features Indochinese and French cuisines. Do Forni is Italian. Fu Lu Zu is the Chinese restaurant. Hachi offers up Old World Japan. And Chocolat is a Belgian patisserie.

Show kitchens anchor several of the hotel's restaurants. Of course, the most dramatic shows at the Sofitel will take place in the hotel's ballroom, where a USD 2 million investment in audio-visual technology has equipped the facility for extravaganzas.

"Cabarets, orchestras, revues – we expect all manner of entertainment in this hotel," said Lamoot, the day after a command performance by a song-and-dance troupe from Pattaya, Thailand. "Next month, we'll host a wedding where the bride and groom drive right into the ballroom. We're set up to be that kind of a dramatic place."

In addition to celebrations, the hotel's recreational opportunities are munificent. The Phnom Penh property will serve as the first location in Southeast Asia to deliver Sofitel's So Spa, featuring French cosmetology, a restaurant-like menu of treatment options and a blending of private and public space. Five of the spa's 10 private treatment rooms are designed for involved Khmer and Thai treatments; the other five rooms, each an ample 30-square meters, are to be used for various beauty treatments.

In addition to two squash courts, the grounds feature four, floodlit tennis courts and two locales for workouts. So Fit is a haven for fitness and well-being exclusively for in-house guests. The Phokeethra Sports Club is a sophisticated gym for guests and local members alike. Likewise, the hotel's two pools - one in the hotel building itself and the other in the adjacent sports complex - cater exclusively to guests and to both guests and members, respectively.

On the 12th floor, Club Millésime caters to the hotel's executive guests in the first purpose-built facility of its kind in the region. The lounge's stunning views of the city and the river, and a combination of outdoor space and sophisticated décor, elevate this meeting space to great new heights.

Royal Tower set to begin 'very soon'
FRIDAY, 18 MARCH 2011

WORK on the long-awaited Royal Tower is set to begin “very soon”, according to Royal Group Chairman Kith Meng, after the multi-million-dollar project was approved by the Council for the Development of Cambodia.

The tower – planned to be 36-storeys high and located at the corners of Monivong and Russian Federation Boulevards in Phnom Penh – was part of US$245-million worth of schemes approved by the government in the first two months of this year, according to the CDC.

The project received formal approval last month and has total fixed assets of $90 million behind it, a list obtained by The Post stated.

It was described as “development of trade and retail centre, business centres, conference and exhibition centres as well as service suites and hotels”.

Construction is slated to be completed by mid-2013, according to information displayed on the Royal Group’s website yesterday.

When quizzed about the scheme yesterday, Royal Group Chairman Kith Meng commented only to say “it will begin very soon”.

Media reports in October said the conglomerate was still in negotiations with investors in order to complete funding for the project.

The $245.4 million worth of projects approved by the CDC in January and February was a large rise on the $89.6 million approved in the same period of 2010.

Yorn Heng, the director for the Department of Assessment and Investment Projects at CDC, said yesterday: “We hope that investment money will continue growing in the future because we are recovering from the global economic crisis that affected Cambodia’s economic situation last year.”

Of the 12 projects approved in the first two months, seven schemes worth $25 million were related to the textile industry.

The schemes were backed by investors from Hong Kong, the United States, Taiwan and Korea. Van Sou Ieng, president of Garment Manufactures Association in Cambodia, said that the sector has been encouraged by the relaxation of taxes on European garment imports.

A rubber processing factory was also approved along with a $102 million scheme from Tower Master (Cambodia) Company Limited, which develops and maintains telecommunication towers in the Kingdom.

A $17 million Noth Korean project from Mansudae New Tech Corp Ltd, described only as a “panorama house” was also approved in January. ADDITIONAL REPORTING ELLIE DYER

Peninsula project planned

Phnom Penh Post
Wednesday, 23 March 2011 15:01 Sieam Bunthy


Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation is preparing to submit its planned US$3-billion development on Chroy Changvar peninsula for Government approval, according to the firm’s Project Manager Touch Samnang.

The Chroy Changvar, or “City of the Future” project is slated to stand on more than 300 hectares of land, including a national standium and a 60-hectare park alongside housing and commercial buildings.
The firm is preparing to submit the required paperwork

to receive the Council for the Development of Cambodia’s green light, though it has already received an initial blessing from the government, he said.

“The plan is to start construction in 2011,” he said.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The project will build confidence for more investment, [and] increase national economic potential

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Work was slated to take 10 to 15 years to complete, and would employ between 5,000 and 10,000 workers, he said.

Sung Bonna, president of the National Valuers Association of Cambodia, welcomed the project, saying that it was likely the satellite city would be completed successfully, given the time and location were right and OCIC carried a strong reputation.

“The project will build confidence for more investment, increase national economic potential and create more jobs for Cambodian people,” he said.

“It will also show the progress of [the real estate] sector.”

Phnom Penh municipal officials could not be reached for comment on the project.

Meanwhile, Chroy Changvar is home to an increasing number of large-scale developments.

Construction is ongoing at the $100 million, 16-storey Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel project at the penninsula’s southern tip. The project is set for a launch in the beginning of 2012.

South Korean-owned Booyoung Khmer Company plans to construct a commercial development beside the Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel, though work has not yet begun, Chroy Changvar Commune Chief Pich Saroeun said earlier this month.
