As well as its attractive landscaped gardens, the hotel's facilities include two swimming pools (a 25-metre lap pool and a separate pool for families) while the spa offers a range of massages and therapies and includes a fully-equipped gym, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.

Five restaurants and bars provide guests with a wide choice of dining options: the elegant main restaurant serves French and Khmer cuisine; alternatively, there is a café for outdoor dining, a poolside terrace for light meals and snacks and a deli offering coffee and pastries.

In addition, a conservatory serves as a venue for traditional afternoon tea and there are two bars, including the famous Elephant Bar with its extensive cocktail menu.

Why we love it


This hotel is a little different to others and is distinguished by its blend of Khmer, art-deco and French colonial architecture.
