Two of Cambodia’s leading hospitality groups have merged to create a “formidable force to be reckoned with” in the country’s culinary scene.

From June 1, Almond Hospitality Group has merged with and been acquired by Thalias Hospitality Group to create a strong portfolio that takes in a raft of hotels, restaurants, and a media outlet.

“This acquisition has enabled Almond to accomplish a bigger vision to furthering its customer reach as well as a formidable force to be reckoned with in the culinary scenes; one that we believe can be better achieved with another reputable hospitality brand like Thalias,” said Master Chef and CEO of Almond Group.

Under the merger, Thalias has expanded its portfolio to take in Almond’s brands, including Yi Sang, Sevensea Seafood, Kanji, Uy Kuyteav, Kroeung Garden, World Dining Catering Service, and Almond Hotel.

Thalias already owns the renowned restaurants of Topaz, Malis, Khema, Nham Eylov, and Siena Italian Steakhouse, as well as Arunreas Hotel and Cambodge Mag.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all our loyal customers, and we look forward to sharing this exciting news and continuance of our amazing journeys with you in the near future,” Meng added.

Thalias Hospitality Group was founded in 1997 and has grown to employ more than 500 employees, with Almond Hospitality Group operating since 2008.
