An oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of the city. This urban resort an spa is a sister company of The Pavillion, which is an historical colonial building we had stayed in before (and loved). Both are located just down the road, not far from the Royal Palace. Unlike the traditional The Pavilion, The Plantation is of modern chic decor and has more rooms.
Rooms are decorated in minimalistic style, with the a touch of local flare, and those on the ground floor have a private garden area.
The quality of service is of a high standard as you can expect of most hotels in this price range in Cambodia. I loved the pool side restaurants and lounge areas the most.
Do take time for a stroll around the neighbourhood - as you will find some great boutiques stores within a few blocks - especially along Street 240 which has an eclectic mix of mixed local fashion retail, second hand book stores which stock a great range of historical books about the country, cafes, restaurants and arts and crafts. A good time to do this is in the late afternoon as the sun is not as hot, and before stores close around 7pm.
