Siem Reap, Cambodia -- Sokha Hotels & Resorts today (14 September, 2016) announces the soft opening of Sokha Siem Reap Resort & Convention Center, 776 rooms added to the city landscape.

Cambodia -based hospitality group Sokha Hotels & Resorts (http://sokhahotels.com/siemreap) has expanded its portfolio by opening the new resort. This is the second property in Siem Reap to become part of the Sokha brand. Along with Sokha Angkor Resort which opened in 2006, Sokha now have more than 1,000 five star rooms available daily to support the booming tourism to Angkor Wat.



"Guests at Sokha Siem Reap Resort - can look forward to experiencing the brand's signature service renown at both our Siem Reap properties," said Mr Sophertra Say, Group Deputy Director of Sales & Marketing at Sokha Hotels. "Each time we open a new hotel, we know the little things mean everything, technology has become a big part of the guest expectation, our new Sokha Siem Reap Resort & Convention Center embraces technology from the moment you check-in. IMac can be seen throughout the hotels public areas and all guest rooms will offer a personal welcome message on the room’s entertainment IPTV system. An aquatic cinematic experience also awaits you, either a movie or the latest sporting event can be viewed on the impressive 43sqm LED screen which towers above our 1,000 sqm saltwater swimming pool.”

Located on Siem Reap’s famous Road No 60, you can view the fiery red and orange sunset to the west of the resort and experience a sunrise from your private balcony to the East, whichever one you choose is certainly a photographic moment you may not want to miss. You can wake up to an inviting breakfast at Lotus restaurant offering al-fresco style dining experience. Khmer Bistro & Bar is located adjacent to the pool and features a signature wood fired pizza of no less than 48 cm. Lemongrass restaurant opens at night when you wish to experience the Chef Table culinary selection. The resort’s 2,200 sqm ballroom and multiple individual meeting rooms add to the resort’s uniqueness along with the Fitness Plus & Jasmine Spa offers the largest wellbeing facility in Siem Reap.

60 Road in Siem Reap also represents why we travel, walking distance from the resort’s lobby is the Kuong Yu market offering a 100% evening Cambodian style. It’s buzzing every single night. A long road lined with street food sellers, a shopper’s paradise for children’s clothing & shoes and even small fun fair with rides and slides. You will also experience hundreds of locals enjoying the traditional evening picnic and Khmer barbecue 50 meters from the resort’s entrance. If Siem Reap’s “Pub Street” or “Angkor Night Market” is on your agenda then the resort onsite Remork service can offer you a pleasant 10 minute ride along the city’s streets for a price of just 2 USD.

Ms Chanthy Sok, Group Director of Sales & Marketing at Sokha Hotels, said, " People from all around the world come specifically to visit Angkor as it contains the magnificent reminisce of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire reflecting the splendor of the cities that once were. A number of amazing artistic masterpieces , namely Bayon, Ta Prom, Banteay Srei and the majestic splendor of Angkor Wat presenting an unusual combination of mythological, historical and cultural significance from as early at the 9th Century.
