Our favourite rooms
The Courtyard Suites are arguably the more romantic of the two. Their sleek, walled courtyards – all of which have day-beds – are just the spot for secluded sunbathing, meditation or a private candle-lit dinner. Riverfront Suites are slightly bigger, and have a private terrace with a plunge pool overlooking the Mekong. They’re also the room of choice for families, sleeping up to three adults or two adults and two children.
The palm-flanked pool is by the river, letting you spy on passing boats as you swim. It’s unheated, large enough for laps and is surrounded by sun loungers, parasols and cushion-strewn day-beds with shading hoods.
The hotel’s three-room spa specialises in Cambodian massage and aromatherapy, drawing on a range of traditional Khmer techniques. Guests get to personalise their treatments by choosing from a selection of natural oils and herbs, and therapists will happily tailor them to specific concerns. There’s also a small but well-equipped gym near the pool.
You’ll need knee-length shorts or trousers to visit temples, and don’t forget that insect repellent.
The common areas shouldn’t pose problems to wheelchairs, but there aren’t any specially adapted rooms.
All ages are welcome, but there aren’t any specific kiddo-friendly facilities. Up to two extra beds can be added to both room types.
