Rambutan Resort - Phnom Penh
Ranked #5 of 274 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 15, 2013

For the first time in the three times we visited Phnom Penh we had the feeling of coming "home" in the hotel. Its a relaxed place with a great relaxed atmosphere. The hotel is new, very clean and the staff is very friendly.
I read some reviews here where people complaint about the poor breakfast. Its good to know for future visitors that you can order anything and mix breakfast (as mentioned on the menu). So we had a great breakfast every morning!
The food (and drinks!) is really good and very reasonable priced. Despite the many nice restaurant in town its worth to stay in the hotel and relax, eat and drink near the pool.
We traveled around for 4 weeks in many different hotels and this was the first place where the mattress was great!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice. Some have a court, some a view. We had a view on the swimmingpool but there was...

I have stayed at Rumbutan Resort on four occasions while traveling to Phnom Penh from Siem Reap where I live. This hotel not only reflects the rapid change of modernity which the capital is experiencing but it also reflects the Khmer style of ‘New Design’ from when the city was the center of style for Southeast Asia in the 1960’s. Clean lines, polished cement, white exteriors are contrasted with contemporary Asian art prints, bold splashes of colors and stylish furnishings.
The rooms are well appointed, spacious for an urban hotel and very comfortable. The public areas provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of Phnom Penh and the pool area is an oasis after a hot day of business in the Capital.
The staff are attentive and friendly in a family manner, rather than trained to an inch of their life’s. Nothing seems a problem, there is always a heart-felt smile to greet you and on your return visit you are instantly part of the family.

Room Tip: Try a massage... very well trained and managed to undo all the knots in my shoulders

What a nice new place!
rooms are clean and trendy, though it might not be everyone's thing: I loved the outdoor bath! lovely staff, that spoke very good English. The restaurant serves very very tasty food at affordable prices, breakfast is set, but you can ask for anything on the side. and the saltwater pool is great! Truly I can't think of anything I didn't like. Would come back here any time!

At just over two days my stay was much too short. This stylish hotel is an oasis of calm in hectic Phnom Penh. Good food is within walking distance, or a quick tuk tuk ride away. The staff is amazing! So friendly! The food is excellent as were the cocktails! The pool is beautiful and the perfect temperature. My room was stylish, clean, well lit and comfortable. Nice shower and separate toilet room. The in-house massage was so good I went back for a second one! I'll be back!

We stayed only for a night and its A.MAZ.ING!

The interiors are well conceptualized and designed. It modern-traditional khmer. :) Our room is clean, spacious and everything is provided for, even our own umbrella. Bath is separated from the toilet which is a plus. Yeay! A/C and hot shower working perfectly. I enjoyed the low comfortable bed.

Ravy and Hongsan are nice enough to arrange the tour for us, much more upgrade our room. Thank you. The staff and tuktuk driver are attentive and nice. They will assist you in everything-- tour, time scheduling (which is important during our stay, because we want to maximize our one day in Phom Penh), resto reservations and bus ticket. During our tour it was dusty, our driver Mr. Sun is nice enough to stop and give us mask. How thoughtful, this small gesture will go a long way. The free breakfast is mouthful and yummy. If your having a long day in Phom Penh, their full breakfast will give you the energy for it.

Highly recommendable!

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor, fronting the pool. :) It has an outer bath tub.

The staff at the Rambutan are wonderful, very friendly, helpful & professional.
The pool area is beautiful & a really nice way to relax after a busy day exploring Phnom Penh in the heat. The food, & the cocktails are very tasty (especially the rambutan mojito)!
Our 1st room with a balcony overlooking the pool was awesome & our 2nd room in the penthouse was even more awesome.
Through the hotel we booked a dinner cruise on the Phocea Mekong boat which was a fantastic experience & would highly recommend it. Many thanks to the manager for making the booking, as being a new hotel they had apparently not dealt with this particular boat operator before, & everything worked out perfectly.
Tuk-tuks are readily available out the front & staff will make sure they know where you want to go. Do take your Rambutan card with you to help with directions for your return tuk-tuk to the hotel.
Thank you to all the staff at the Rambutan for helping to make our time in Phnom Penh so good. Definitely would recommend to others.
