Sokha’s business lounge the first of its type in town

Sokha’s business lounge the first of its type in town

Corporate visitors to Siem Reap now have their own retreat with the opening of the Sokha Angkor Executive Lounge and Suites.

In an effort to capitalise on increasing business travel to Siem Reap, Sokha Angkor is trialling the town’s first dedicated business travel lounge.

General manager Emmett McHenry says more and more corporate types are making business trips to Siem Reap and they require certain comforts.

He says many businesses have a branch in Siem Reap, while numerous large  and multinational businesses are exploring interests in Siem Reap, with well-heeled executives making more and more trips here.

“We’re hoping to cater to this market by operating this facility. No other hotel in Siem Reap has one. The hotels here just don’t have the room,” Emmett says. “Eventually we’ll convert the whole second floor into an executive floor.”

Emmett says the hotel has also been attracting many corporate guests to conferences that Sokha hosts.

The hotel will have a direct connection to the airport with the ability to check flight information, and be checked in and out remotely.

Access to the lounge includes a custom buffet breakfast, afternoon tea and evening canapés, and drinks served throughout the day.

Guests will have free access to the conference room, free wifi, access to an imac, phone rental and a collection of international papers.

Staying in an executive suite at Sokha comes with several benefits including access to free phone calls, suit pressing, in-room fax and express laundry.

Guests will even be able to choose their own pillow via the hotel’s pillow menu.

By the pillow-side will be a customised letterhead. “It’s all about personalisation,” Emmett says.

Outside patrons will have access to the lounge for a nominal fee of $30.

“I hope it will be a hit, but it will take a while I think,” Emmett says.
