The new project revealed by Bloomberg, finds that the partners are looking to launch a new island resort on Koh Rong to include a new airport, apartments, casinos, golf courses, polo fields and the like.
It is understood that the two will raise funds to build this new development from regions such as the Middle East and London. Estimates put the development of the entire resort between ten and 15 years.
Koh Rong Island is the largest of 22 islands off the coast of Sihanoukville, and has been described Royal Group as ‘like the Maldives’.
Royal and Millennium are also said to be in talks with global and regional hoteliers, like Banyan Tree, to encourage them to also put properties on the island.
Cambodia has been aggressively developing its tourism offerings these last few years as the benefits of traveller dollars become more apparent. Visitors to Cambodia burst past the 2 million barrier last year for the first time.
