The Plantation - urban resort & spa
Ranked #14 of 270 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2013

My girlfriend and I arrived here after a couple unpleasant journeys within Cambodia and some rough lodgings too. What a perfect choice. We were immediately taken to our lovely room - I think it may have been the worst in the whole hotel but it was the cheapest and more than we could have asked for - and shown the pool.
We barely left the hotel for the next three days. The pool is spectacular, especially if you are lucky enough to get one of those bungalow places.
Our breakfast was delicious every morning with incredible service.
I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed my stay at The Plantation. It was a refreshing stop on a grueling budget journey and continued to showcase how lovely Cambodians can be.

Room Tip: Looking into the neighbors bedroom wasn't key but anything with a balcony will be enjoyable!

As we weaved through the dusty streets of Phnom Penh by car after a 5 hour journey from Sihanoukville, we were becoming a increasingly anxious as to where we had booked to stay for the last 2 nights of our month long trip of Vietnam & Cambodia! We finally arrived at the Plantation to be greeted & our minds put instantly at ease by friendly helpful staff. The relatively new hotel, which was formally a government building i'm led to believe, is very bright, modern & clean. The rooms are modern, clean, quiet & very comfortable. The staff, as with the other places in Cambodia which we stayed, couldn't do enough for us. The pool has a great feature of individual double sunken sun loungers shaded by cabanas whilst the breakfast which is served around the pool area is very good. The location couldn't really be better, within short walking distance of the palace & good places to eat. Its great to see Phnom Penh "on its feet" after the city was deserted & pretty much destroyed during the Khmer Rouge rule. This hotel is very good & was a lovely end to our trip. A welcome retreat within the hot busy bustling city.

Unlike the name suggested, the Plantation is more an oasis in the middle of buzzoing Phnom Penh, on walking distance from the Royal Palace, the river, the temples, FCC and the Pub street. As for food, the Plantation has a good and affordable menu to choose from. Service is all you wanted to be. Rooms and swimming pool setttings are prefect for romantic couples to enjoy. There's a basis gym. Wifi are available everywhere. At the time when we were there, the entrance gave home to a unique local art collection.

Great little haven in the craziness of Phnom Penh. It has a cool style to it and ind the grounds are beautiful. Check-in was smooth and we were welcomed with a refreshing drink and cool towel. The location was great. Easy to get a tuk-tuk to where you want to go. The rooms are excellent. They were big, with a balcony, spacious bathroom, comfy bed has a mosquito net. The only negative thing about the room was that the toilet took a while to flush, to the point that I thought there was a plumbing issue and had to call the hotel staff to look at it. So just be patient with the plumbing! The breakfast was great, overlooking the pool and had a great selection. We also tried out the massage at the hotel. We asked for the 'Deep tissue' massage which felt way too gentle in tackling all muscle knots. I would go outside the hotel for a better massge. Overally I would stay here again. The location is great and the ambience makes you feel removed from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh

I have just returned from spending four nights at the Plantation. Anyone travelling to Phnom Penh should consider staying here. The hotel is very well designed and the facilities are excellent. I stayed in a pool view king size room and found it to be a perfect retreat from the city. The pool area is great as is the pool side cafe where breakfast is served. All of the staff are friendly and very helpful. I will definitely return next time I am in Phnom Penh.

After 2 weeks traveling around Cambodia this was our last night treat, and it didn't disappoint. A good location close to the Royal Palace, the river front and the Central Market. Staff were excellent and everyone from the gardeners to the waitresses greeted you with a smile and a welcome. A real oasis amid the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room overlooking the pool.

The positioning of The Plantation as an 'Urban Spa Retreat' is just perfect! Conveniently located near the Royal Palace and lot of great restaurants in the heart of Phnom Penh.

The hotel itself exudes the 'new kid on the block' vibe...tastefully refurbished building with rooms that sometimes feel a little small and pokey but warm none the less. Unless your room faces the pool area...kiss the view goodbye...for the other rooms, the balcony faces out to a crazy barrage of tin roofs.

The pool area is beautiful!! And this is where you will probably spend a lot of your time! Breakfast was also excellent and generally the food at the restaurants was great.

Overall, our experience at The Plantation was very pleasant and definitely worth your money (and a little more!) for a visit to Phnom Penh.
