Review: Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh


Book A Stay

Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh is the newest five-star luxury hotel set right in the heart of the historical and modern capital of Phnom Penh in Cambodia. The hotel, being new, is both immaculate and elegant, and the fantastic pool takes you on a mind journey away from the city and over to the coast.


The Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh is walkable to the nearby Royal Palace, National Museum, and The Riverside, and is equally convenient for the business center of the city. You won’t find a better-located hotel in Phnom Penh. If you are flying in, the airport is just 30 minutes drive from the hotel, and travel around the city is easy by hotel limousine, taxi, or tuk-tuk.

Style & Character

If you read any reviews about this hotel, the overriding opinion is that this ultra-modern hotel is pristine with brilliant staff. The look is very “Hyatt” with a modern interior decorated in chocolate tones. In line with the modern architecture, floor-to-ceiling windows share wonderful city views and let in loads of light.

Service & Facilities

For us, the pool is an absolute highlight. Wooden loungers with white cushions laze on the wooden decking surrounded by greenery and shaded by parasols. This might be the nicest place to relax in the whole of Phnom Penh and the greenery transports guests to a peaceful location away from the stress and noise of the city.

Beyond the pool, there are nine multi-functional meeting and event spaces, a 24/7 fitness center with state-of-the-art fitness equipment, and the exclusive Regency Club lounge. Further amenities include free internet access, free parking, room service, and concierge. The hotel also features the beautiful Jivapita Spa, an urban hideaway and contemporary retreat right in the heart of the city offering a truly authentic Cambodian experience.


There are 247 stunning rooms and suites within the hotel. Even the standard rooms are excellent at 30.5 sq m (328 sqft) and feature a modern workspace, contemporary Khmer design elements, and floor-to-ceiling windows with views overlooking vibrant Phnom Pen. I particularly like the chaise lounge set by the window so you can relax while looking out of the window.

The Regency Club (exclusively for Club Room and Suite guests only) is located on the 10th floor with indoor seating and an outdoor terrace with dynamic views across the city. It offers a complimentary continental and buffet breakfast, evening canapés, and beverages and is a great place to relax with loved ones and friends.

Food & Drink

Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh presents a remarkable culinary journey with five distinctive bars and restaurants showcasing a vast variety of local and international cuisine as well as bespoke yet stylish cocktails, all in a vibrant atmosphere. The FiveFive Rooftop Restaurant & Bar enjoys the city’s most unrivaled views of the Royal Palace and Mekong river.
