Stylish, contemporary décor is embellished with handmade Laotian and Khmer art. All rooms are air conditioned, with mini bar, organic toiletries, LCD TV, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities and a complimentary fruit platter which is provided upon arrival. Room Tip – it’s well worth paying that little bit extra for a Grand Tour room, as they offer that extra touch of luxury, a bit more space, and access to one of the roof terraces where you can enjoy a romantic dinner for two with beautiful views.
Restaurant Niam Niam (translated as eat, eat!) presents a wide variety of cuisine, including local Cambodian, authentic Italian and contemporary international dishes. The menu also offers plenty of vegetarian options and produce is sourced locally. Experiencing the typical Khmer flavours of fresh chilies, lemongrass, sweet basil and rice paddy herbs is highly recommended. If you feel like something a little bit special, you can enjoy a private dinner on one of the roof terraces or in the hotel gardens – just ask the hotel to arrange this for you.
