De Castle Royal partners with The Place for first-class gym workout

The management of the 32-storey De Castle Royal condominium project in BKK1 has announced that the The Place, widely regarded as Phnom Penh’s only independent five-star gym, will manage the development’s fitness centre.

This means the air-conditioned De Castle Royal gym will be fully fitted out with state-of-the-art equipment supplied by Italy’s Technogym, which Alexandre Vessella, The Place’s gym manager, described to the Post in an interview late last year as “the best sports equipment brand on the market”.

The Place will also manage De Castle Royal’s 25-metre swimming pool, says property manager Nimol Mam, who adds that the pool will be built to the same dimensions as the one at The Place, which is located at No 11 Street 51, and will also include a poolside garden.

“With management by The Place, we can guarantee high-class service, operations and maintenance, making it the perfect place for our members to work out or simply relax by the pool,” Mam says.

In the fourth-floor gym, personal trainers will be on hand to help De Castle Royal customise workout regimens according to every individual’s needs. Instructor-led activities such as yoga will also be available.

The most anticipated five-star condominium development in Phnom Penh, De Castle Royal’s 32 storeys include seven floors reserved for parking and will also feature a rooftop garden perched on the summit of the 117-metre building.

“The rooftop garden will have flowers, plants and shrubbery, making it a perfect place to relax and enjoy views of the city,” Mam says, adding that guests will be able to order food and refreshments from a “brand name” coffee chain yet to be announced that will operate in the building.

According to De Castle Royal developer Nuri D&C, some 90 per cent of the condominium development’s 414 units have already been sold, and the company recently announced a leaseback program for the remaining three-bedroom units.

The latest Market View report by CBRE Cambodia Research cited De Castle Royal as a leading factor in the return of confidence to the Phnom Penh condominium sector, in particular for off-plan developments.

“De Castle Royal has been successful in attracting significant foreign interest, due both to the calibre of the building and the strong rate of return that investors can expect to achieve,” the report says.

Nuri D&C has yet to put a fixed date on the opening of De Castle Royal, but Mam says that the amenities and interior fittings are all now close to completion and residents will be able to take occupancy in the coming months.

“Our facilities – everything from the gym and swimming pool to the rooftop garden – are everything you need for a modern lifestyle in Phnom Penh’s most fashionable quarter of town,” Mam says.
