The BEST WESTERN River Palace Hotel is set on the banks of the Tonle Sap River, offering an ideal location for both business and leisure travelers. And this superb setting is matched by a wealth of facilities. The hotel’s 59 rooms and suites – many of which overlook the river – all come equipped with 32-inch LCD TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, work desks, tea and coffee making facilities, walk-in showers and bathtubs. At the end of a day exploring the city, guests can unwind in the hotel’s excellent spa, which features hot and cold jacuzzis, a steam bath and the only Turkish hammam in Cambodia. There is also a fitness center with the latest modern equipment. Diners can sample the freshest local seafood and delectable Khmer and Western cuisine at the Palace Seafood Restaurant, or relax with a cooling drink at the Riviera Lounge Bar. And for corporate guests, the hotel’s meeting space and VIP rooms provide options for intimate meetings or special events of between 12 and 60 people. There is also a modern business center.
“Our expansion in the ASEAN region continues at pace, and I am delighted to be able to welcome guests to yet another thriving regional capital, Phnom Penh,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President of International Operations for Asia & Middle East. “This exciting city is fast becoming a regional hub for business and leisure travel, and the position of the BEST WESTERN River Palace Hotel means we are now at the very heart of Phnom Penh’s growth. Combined with our existing hotel in Siem Reap, this opening also means Best Western is now present in Cambodia’s two leading destinations. “I am confident that our guests will love the excellent array of amenities on offer at the hotel, including our exquisite spa with Cambodia’s only Turkish hammam,” Mr. de Souza added.
BEST WESTERN River Palace Hotel becomes the company’s second hotel in Cambodia, following the BEST WESTERN Suites and Sweet Resort Angkor in Siem Reap. Ahead of the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015, Best Western is now present in eight ASEAN countries, including six of the region’s capital cities.
