The Plantation - urban resort & spa

Reviewed 21 November 2012

I stayed at the Plantation last April for business and was surprised at the beauty and informal feel of the small botique hotel; it felt like more like a vacation, at a resort. The location is very central, close to the Palace. My room looked out at the swimming pool, where a covered outdoor free breakast was served on the other side of the pool. I also found the Khmer restaurant on the roof inviting. Overall, it was a very good stay.

Room Tip: My room facing the pool had a small patio shielded by flowing plants...

The Plantation has the wow factor, starting with the spacious courtyard (with pond) that greets you at entrance, before you enter the reception area. It is sprawling and minimalist, but elegantly designed throughout. Definitely it gives you a sense of being in an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the narrow streets just outside. The food I had including breakfast had a reasonable spread, and of a good standard. My main issue is the rooms could be better appointed: airconditioning seemed underpowered, the shower fittings a little basic, and the room safe difficult to use. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend this hotel, and plan to return

I stayed at this hotel when I could not get into my first choice. .. From now on, the Plantation wil be my first choice when in Phnom Penh!!!!! In short, I loved every aspect of this hotel. The room was modern, clean & well presented, the staff friendly, the food good and the pool and Spa A1. Little touches such as the complimentary fruit left in the room and the lovely soaps were appreciated.

From the outside it looks not inviting and small. But once inside, it has a great comfortable and resort ambience. Staff are courteous and polite. Anyways, most Asian hotels have polite staff other than those 2-3 stars hotels.....
Many greenery... enticing pool with gazebos around it. Room is comfotable and nice. Bed is good to sleep in. Place is serene and quiet. The bathroom is simple with no deco but big enough for show. One thing is that they do not provide disposable toothbrush......
Big balcony to relax outside if u get tired of the air-conditioning inside.
Room service is quick.
Room has an extra lower 'bed' or 'seater' good to lay back to relax. Good size too. half of king size.

Room Tip: You may want a upper floors facing the pool.

Room was dark and lack privacy, the only way to get it was to draw the curtains over the whole front of the room which was also the only entrance meaning you were completely in the dark then.

Pool area nice and had a gym I made use of.

Organise a packed breakfast as we were checking out at 6:30am. It was 2 dry croissants, 2 pieces of dry bread, and an apple. Not up to standard given the quality of the hotel.

Dear Guest,

I am veryy sorry we disapointed you with the room. Indeed the two rooms downstairs need to be more private and I will plan for a visual protection. As for the breakfast, I will double check how and why did that happen. Thanks for letting us know. Cheers, Alexis
