A partnership with the Cambodian Grand Lion group, Le Méridien (388 rooms) will be part of Gold Coast in Sihanouville – a $200 million hotel and residential complex.
The property will include three restaurants, two bars, a fitness center, a spa, meeting and event rooms for 400 people, and a beach club with overflowing pools (opening January 2022).
Towering 58 storeys high, all 888 units of the Lyon D'or residence tower will enjoy a panoramic sea views of the Gulf of Thailand. Designed for an upscale clientele, Lyon D'or will have a rooftop infinity pool, a sky lounge, a fitness center, a spa, a recreation and multi-purpose rooms.
The project will be designed by Bangkok-based Tandem Architects 2001 and interior designer firm, JKY Concept. The residences will be exclusively marketed by Knight Frank, a global real estate consultancy.
Named after its former king Norodom Sihanouk, Sihanoukville has evolved from a sleepy beach town and port city to one of Cambodia's premier beach destinations. Its close proximity to surrounding tropical islands and Ream National Park has attracted a growing number of international visitors over the years.
The Gold Coast at Sihanoukville, built by Nath Land Development, a division of the Grand Lion Group, follows the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Siem Reap Resort in January 2018.
The 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 [...] This mega-project aims to be among the first to open a new chapter in luxury beach destination experiences in Sihanoukville.”
