The New Hill Resort & Spa to open in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, in August

The Cambodian resort town of Sihanoukville could become a new player on the conference and events scene, following the launch of a new MICE hotel this summer.

The 122-room New Hill Resort & Spa is expected to open in Sihanoukville in August 2014, providing a range of options for event planners, along with views of the Gulf of Thailand. The hotel will be managed by the Asia Initiative Corporation (AIC), which launched last year and already has four properties, including the Angkor Heritage Boutique Hotel, the Hollywood Angkor Boutique Hotel and Bong Thom Homestay, all in Siem Reap.

The New Hill Resort will be able to cater to more than 500 delegates with multiple meeting rooms for large and small groups. The property also has a swimming pool, tennis court, gymnasium and a ‘sky bar’ offering 360-degree views of the area.

Sihanoukville is located on the Gulf of Thailand, along the same coast as Thailand’s resort islands of Koh Chang and Koh Kood, and Vietnam’s Phu Quoc Island.
