The Royal Group, in partnership with a Thailand-based Swiss investor, will build a 148-room five-star hotel on Preah Sihanouk’s Koh Rong island, with the group having completed a ground-breaking ceremony on Saturday.

Khin Remy, an assistant to Kith Meng, the chairman of Royal Group, said the new villa-style resort will be called Royal Sands Koh Rong Resort, and will cost $40 million during the first phase of construction.

Construction has started and will be completed by December 2016,” Remy said.

Luzi Matzig, chairman of Thailand-based tourism firm Asian Trails Group and a partner in the project, said that once the resort was completed, tour operators in Cambodia could use the hotel to attract more tourists to the island, especially after they visit popular tourist destinations, like Angkor Wat and Phnom Penh.
