The food I had at Rambutan was the best meal I ate during my entire trip through Australia, NZ and SE Asia. The staff gave such a high standard of service, and both teachers and trainees were clearly passionate about what they were doing. It was a beautiful restaurant and I wish I'd had the time to revisit this place whilst in Phnom Penh!

I had a very good experience right from the day I started sending them mails to enquire about bookings till the day We Checked out.
At this price you can't get a better hotel than Rambutan. You are welcomed with a drink and a cool towel which is refreshing especially after a long flight.
The room itself is very clean and spacious with all the facilites available especially the deluxe room.
The breakfast is amazing with the different options available.
The best asset of this hotel is their helpful staff and you get a feeling that you are part of this big family.
The hotel staff takes care of almost everything right from arranging your local tours and advising you on the different tourist attractions.
Overall you get a feeling of being at home.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms with balcony & Outdoor Tub

Having been welcomed with a cool towel, a drink and warm smiles we got everything that we needed at rambutan .

- A modern, clean and comfortable room.
- A swim in their gorgeous pool.
- Delicious dinner with THE BEST MAI TAI!!! seriously, the best I've ever had.
- The staff organised our visas to Vietnam (62 dollars each- in Sihanoukville we saw agents that charged 60 dollars, so for not having to leave the hotel, this price was great) and made photocopies of our passports (free of charge) so that we could travel on with those. When we came back a week later our passports and visas were waiting for us, it was just so easy.
- When another guest needed a guide book and we offered him to have a look in ours, the receptionist made photocopies of the relevant chapter also free of charge.

The location also suited us well - we had seen the palace in Bangkok and since the guidebook said that the one in Phnom Penh was similar we decided to give it a miss. We did however want to buy our souvenirs in Phnom Penh and the Russian market (within walking distance -15 min. if you survive crossing the street ;) was perfect for that. Also there's a shadow puppet show on nearby (every Friday and Saturday evening at Sovann Phum Art Association, which was, to be honest, not what I had expected but I guess interesting if you haven't seen anything like it before).

We stayed here for 7 nights and were so impressed by not only the hotel and gardens but also by the staff. The food was wonderful, the staff were so warm and lovely and the pool was beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely well run hotel to anyone. We had an amazing tuk tuk driver who works with the hotel, Mr Therith, tuk tuk number 007. He was the best tour guide and driver we have ever had. He shared with us so much about Phnom Penh, Cambodian culture and his own life and we just loved him. He is certainly a wonderful ambassador for the Rambutan Resort and I would recommend him to anyone while staying at this resort. Thank you so much to everyone at Rambutan you made us feel so welcome in your lovely establishment

Our stay at Rambutan was really good!
- The rooms are so modern in decoration and lay out (but probably better for couples or families, ask for a frosted window shower if you are not traveling as a couple)
- The swimming pool is the best! Salt water, so pretty and clean
- The staff is so helpfull
- The minibar is perfect
- Breakfast is the best

A tip: please note that you can order more than one dish from the breakfast menu. We didn't understand that the first day, so I ended up having only one pancake for breakfast - though it was extremely good, not enough food for most people. And be aware that it can take 15-20 minutes from you order till your breakfast is served.

Room Tip: Deluxe room with outdoor bathtub is very nice, but you need to let the hot water run for some time b...

Boutique style hotel, very professionally run with a wide range of services and facilities. Slight mix up with airport transfer on arrival however the rest of the stay was excellent. Respectful staff and very LGBTQI friendly. Dining, beverages and massage all of a high quality.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms all seem great with large balconies and outdoor bath's
