Grand tower to rise in Sihanoukville

SINGAPORE, 13 March 2018. The Grand Lion Group has inked a management contract with Marriott International to manage a new resort property, due to open in 2022, in Sihanoukville, Cambodia.

The Gold Coast at Sihanoukville project follows on from the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Siem Reap Resort, last January, the group’s first hotel property in the Kingdom.

A major player in Cambodia’s real estate scene, Grand Lion Group will build its first hotel property on the southern coastline of Cambodia, near the port town of Sihanoukville.

Branded a Le Meridien, the 388-room five-star hotel will be the first international branded property in Sihanoukville.

In addition to restaurants, bars, a fitness centre and wellness spa the property will have meeting spaces for up to 400 persons and an oceanfront beach club with infinity pools.

The hotel will be part of a USD 200 million Gold Coast at Sihanoukville hotel and luxury residence complex.

Located on 1.67 hectares, just 17 km from the town’s small airport, the property will tower 58 stories high dominating the coast’s skyline. Its city-style tower design is likely to upset some town’s residents, who are keen to have building restrictions imposed to exclude high-rise blocks from land plots near beaches in and around Sihanoukville.

The project will be designed by Bangkok-based Tandem Architects. Ground breaking is scheduled for January 2019 with an opening date slated for January 2022. The Gold Coast at Sihanoukville will be built by Nath Land Development, a division of the Grand Lion Group which owns the  Courtyard by Marriott Siem Reap Resort.
