“Wonderful and quiet hotel, great scenary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2010

2010 Jan 23~25. // I have stayed this hotel with my family.
Actually, i disliked its location because it's too far away from main town and
beach.
But i have been Sihanoukville more than 10 times already so i needed something new.

In this hotel, i had incredible experience..... the scenary from windows is just awesome
So make sure you get over 5th floors!! (I stayed at 3rd floor one day, the scene is veiled by trees..)

the breakfast was fine. pool is fine..

We stayed for 2 nights, and the rooms were fully booked.
Make sure your reservation...

The Independence was conveniently located both on the beautiful Independence Beach and within close proximity to the town centre. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel experience was very quiet and relaxing.

We stayed here for 13 nights. We were welcomed to a relaxed, clean and beautifully situated hotel. The hotel itself is a bit of a style icon, having previously been the King's playground. The staff were very friendly and the management team were very accommodating and did all they could to make sure we were comfortable and happy with our stay. Mr Rabin made us especially welcome on our arrival. There is a quiet stretch of beautiful beach belonging to the hotel and the deck of the Sunset Bar proved so attractive that we spent most of our time there! Hoping to go back, simply the nicest place we saw during our stay in Sihanoukville (we had spent 1 night at Sokha Beach and transferred to The Independence)

We were warmly welcomed by the charming staff at the Independence, a hotel with an intriguing history, and shown to our impeccably clean and beautiful room. Tastefully decorated, extremely comfortable, and with huge windows, it also had a great bathroom. We enjoyed the fact that the hotel has a garden as well as a good beach, giving us the chance to walk a bit. Perhaps what we enjoyed most was the dining ~ a huge and delicious breakfast buffet each morning, and lunch and dinner at the Sunset Bar and Restaurant. We sat just above the lapping waves and enjoyed some of the best food we've tasted in our entire 3 month long trip to SE Asia. Some evenings there is also the sumptuous seafood BBQ. Arrive hungry! The menu, by the way, is very reasonably priced. We highly recommend the Independence Hotel, and know guests will appreciate the extremely kind and competent service from the staff. Enjoy!

Victor Hugo questioned whether History is “an echo of the past in the future, or a reflex from the future in the past”. The Independence Hotel manages to be both an echo of Cambodia's glamorous colonial past whilst hinting at the country's sophisticated future.
The hotel is beautifully restored, refined and tasteful. The furnishings, and decor, are plush and stylish. The longest drive of any hotel winds through plush tropical forest to this beautifully kept hotel.

The rooms are very tasteful, not overly specced, but with beautiful curtains / blinds. There's plentiful hotwater, good minibar, and very comfortable beds.

The free breakfast had a good selection of Western and Asian Foods. Service was very helpful, friendly and efficient.

The hotel has a 'private beach' which is cleaned, and is much quieter than many of the other Sihanoukville beaches. The solitude could be a potential drawback as the hotel is a little further away from the busy beaches of Sihanoukville.

This hotel is ideal for a quiet, relaxing and luxurious break by the sea. The glamour, taste and style of the hotel will provide you with a wonderful holiday.

Independence Hotel in front of Independence Beach, an amazing beach! The restaurant is to die for, with a fantastic view. After lunch, definitely go swimming in the ocean! It's so much fun! Great waves, and on the beach there are little palm tree umbrellas, perfect sand and great shells. I just loved it.
