Conveniently located in the heart of Phnom Penh, the property is within easy access of the AEON shopping mall, international schools, conference and exhibition centres, embassies, premium offices, Jet’s Container night market, and the entertainment complex NAGA World.

Country general manager, Vietnam, Ascott, Lew Yen Ping spoke on the new development: “Ascott has built a strong brand reputation and expertise in managing world-class serviced residences over the last 30 years. We expect significant demand for our first property in Cambodia, CASA Meridian Residence, as it is the first international-standard serviced residence in the country’s capital and economic hub, Phnom Penh.”

She continued: “In addition, Cambodia has achieved sustained economic progress and strong international tourist arrivals. Ascott will be able to leverage first-mover advantage as we open our second property in the city – Somerset Norodom Phnom Penh in 2018. CASA Meridian Residence will provide corporate travellers, expatriates and their families a balanced living experience, the comfort of home and Ascott’s signature hospitality by our well-trained team.”

CASA Meridian Residence offers a wide selection of apartments, ranging from cleverly designed studio apartments to sleek and modern one-, two- or three-bedroom apartments that can comfortably accommodate up to six persons. Each apartment features contemporary furnishings, well-defined living and dining areas, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen.

Residents can also make most of a comprehensive list of lifestyle facilities, such as an infinity swimming pool and Jacuzzi, indoor playroom, yoga room, sauna, club house, and a fully-equipped gym, as well as business support amenities such as a conference room, meeting room, and serviced offices for rental.

Ping concluded: “With our entry into Cambodia, Ascott is now present in nine out of 10 countries in ASEAN, giving us a strong foothold in the region. We will continue to explore opportunities to grow Ascott’s presence in Cambodia and other ASEAN markets.”
