Park Hyatt to open doors in Siem Reap

Hotel De La Paix Siem Reap will rebrand under the Park Hyatt name after the two companies signed a management deal, according to a statement from Hyatt released on Tuesday.

The hotel will close for renovations starting on June 30 and is expected to reopen in the first quarter of 2013, the statement said.

“This globally recognised property embodies the distinctive experience that our guests expect from Park Hyatt along with a local character that amazes those visiting this wonderful country,” Ratnesh Verma, senior vice president of Hyatt’s Asia-Pacific real estate and development, said in the statement.

Hyatt also planned to expand into Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Busan in South Korea.

Officials at the two companies could not be reached by the Post for comment.
