We have just spent 4 days wrapped in the charm of this very cool hotel. The immaculate rooms, cool and airy are complements to the lush planting around the shared areas. The courtyard lily pool at the entrance is the first hint of the delights to follow. However, the hotels greatest asset is it's delightful young staff...... What a wonderful set of people. The boss should be proud of them.
We ate at both the poolside bar, and sat in our own private lounging pavilion to do so, and in the restaurant on the rooftop. All of the food was delicious.
It's location is perfect for visiting the Royal Palace etc and the main drag of Sisowath Quay. But, if you do stay here, you must turn left out of the hotel one evening and walk to the end of the street before turning left again. A few yards along the run of shops, you will find Toto which is the ice-cream parlour of your dreams. Complete with middle class Khmer kids playing on their iPhones, it is kitted out with the prettiest set of English country house prints imaginable!
