WA Hospitality to manage Sihanoukville casino hotel

Malaysian-based WA Hospitality has signed a management contract to manage the Won Majestic Casino Hotel & Resort in Sihanoukville, local media reports.

The 150-key hotel is under construction and is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2021.

This is the first overseas management contract won by WA Hospitality, which was established in 2015 as a subsidiary company of World Avenues, established in the UK in 1995.

“It is not your typical casino hotel as this one will be right next to the beach and it will be an upscale, five-star property. The hotel concept is to provide entertainment and excellent personalised service,” WA Hospitality’s executive director, Ally Bhoonee, told TTG Asia.

He said based on projections, the property is looking at an 80 percent occupancy in the first year of operations.

Amenities will include a KTV lounge with advance karaoke system, five F&B outlets, an infinity rooftop pool and a 24-hour fully equipped gym overlooking the beachfront.
