The Villa Paradiso certainly delivers what the name promises; it is a paradise in the midst of manic Phnom Penh.
The hotel’s location in the midst of Phnom Penh makes it a very easy and convenient starting point for exploring, with the tuk-tuk drivers waiting outside the gates offering a quick and cheap option to get around. While Phnom Penh is not exactly a city that invites visitors to explore on foot, the hotel is only a short walk away from the Royal Palace. However, be prepared to be constantly offered rides by tuk-tuk drivers along the way.
The hotel does very much feel like the family-run hotel that it is, with very friendly staff helping us manoeuvre the sights of Phnom Penh and the owners greeting guests and making sure everyone is enjoying their stay.
We stayed in the very spacious Balinese Garden room that also has a large bathroom. The room has all the amenities you would need and anything that is not out on display can be called for. All rooms are individually designed, but in our room the design of the shower was a bit of a let-down. The shower is basically a self-made bath tub you have to climb into and as such rather impractical and could be inaccessible for someone less mobile.
The pool area is set in a beautiful and lush garden which yet again makes this hotel the escape from the city that it is.
There is a good choice for breakfast and starting the day at the outdoor restaurant overlooking the pool area is great. Similarly, the restaurant offers delicious Khmer food and an excellent opportunity to relax after having spent the day in Phnom Penh.
