“Gorgeous pool & lovely staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Great location, beautiful rooms, yummy breakfast by the pool, really lovely staff and a beautiful pool! I can't recommend highly enough, I have told everyone I know about this hotel and several of my friends have since stayed here & agree that it's the best place to stay in Cambodia! Can't wait to stay again someday.

Stayed November 2012, traveled solo

We stayed here for 1 night and it is truly beautiful as a resort (especially compared to the rest of Phnom Penh!!)

We flew from Bangkok DM and both mine and my g/f bags were lost. This was our first day and a bit of a disaster - the staff at The Plantation were so so helpful in chasing the airline and providing us with updates on the bags, as well as helping us to still enjoy our stay in Phnom Penh and the hotel, despite the issue.

They gave us a free takeaway breakfast when we left and allowed us to bring the booked breakfast forward a day as we were leaving early the following day. We felt safe as they looked after us so well at a time when we were highly inconvenienced by the loss of all luggage.

A brilliant set of staff.

Loved this hotel, lovely rooms, spacious and clean. Nice staff and great food. Especially loved poolside private areas and service. Had a lovely room with a private balcony overlooking the pool. Would recommend this type of room. Location is really great and within walking distance of great shopping and royal palace. The rooftop restaraunt was especially good. Their fish amok was delicious! Very nice accomodations.

The Plantation is a nice hotel with really lovely pools and dining areas if you want a holiday where you're pretty much left on your own. F&B at the cafe near the main swimming pool can be a little pricey but the food is pretty good. The Khmer restaurant upstairs is gorgeous and well worth the money. I highly recommend you having dinner there at least once. Location-wise, it's ok though we had to get a tuk tuk everywhere we went.

The room is nice though I wish the bathroom sink is together with the bathroom as turning on the tap woke my husband up. TV was ok too and there weren't too many channels as compared to the hotel we were at at Siem Reap.

Service was generally good but I was a little surprised by how hands off the staff was whenever you ask them for help to negotiate tuk tuk prices. All tuk tuk drivers tried to rip us off and the bellboy / staff on duty seemed to feign ignorance or stay out of it altogether, which is pretty strange since most other hotels would help out their guests.

Overall, this is a nice place with a fantastic swimming pool and a really nice spa too.

We booked this hotel on the recommendations from reviews on tripadvisor. We were pleasantly supprised. The room had a modern flair to it and was very clean. Check-in was seamless and the help from the front desk was good. It's only $2 to go anywhere in a tuk-tuk around town, a little oasis in the bustling streets.

Very good, very enjoyable. Reception staff maybe a little formal but staff generally were great, and very friendly. Excellent central position next to Royal Palace, lovely room, great pool, very good food. You really get the feeling you are in Cambodia, which we might not have felt at a more Western-type hotel. Would have enjoyed a longer stay here. In Phnom Penh, we had great Khmer meals at the nearby Friends and Romdeng (part of same NGO which takes in and trains street children to become waiters), and Khmer Saravan on Sisawath Quay. Also PP Tower (Eclipse Skybar) recommended for a sundowner – great views.

From the minute you walk in and are greeted with a flute of chilled passionfruit juice you know that this is a special place.
The hotel is built around 2 leafy courtyards one with a swimming pool surrounded by fan cooled cabanas and the other with ponds and a smaller pool.
The bed was the most comfortable that we slept in during our entire time in Asia. Likewise the breakfast buffet which is served next to the pool offered the best choice of hot and cold and western and Asian food.
The Plantation is a cool oasis in the middle of central Phnom Penh. A truly stunning place to stay.
