Phnom Phen is not my favourite city but nightlife is good and people are wonderful. This resort is a bit of an expat haven, many NGOs and embassies in the vicinity and at weekend they are all at the pool area. No problem but I found the pool a little too open and close to the dining area so everybody could observe the ones relaxing or swimming... To me I like to have more privacy but this is a city resort so I could have known that beforehand. Maybe because I was not a regular visitor or expat, I found service a bit unpersonal and at night for example after 10 or 11 PM they really locked the resort with a huge iron gate with multiple locks on it. One night it was very hard to wake the duty guard as they are sleeping then. Then he had to go and look for the keys it really took like 10 minutes before I could enter the resort.... Is that not a little exxagerated... Rooms are very nice, have the usual stains of brown rain marks on the withe walls and of the marks caused by rubbing the luggage at the walls. But overall it is clean. Gorgeous food and also very nice the bath tub in nature stone on the rooms balcony if you take the superior rooms. Then sitting int he cold water with the sun in the face feels so much better than sitting at the pool donwstairs without any privacy. I would not go naked due to respect for the Khmer neighbours as everybody in that house can see what you are doing. It is a noisy city and that also reflects on the resort during the day. Of course overall i was very happy with my stay but it seems like there are so many reviewers who dont want to say anything critival bout the resort as I think it definitely has but I am sure the team will take it seriously. They also did not do my wake up call when leaving to Sihanoukville even after checking three times.... Design is beautiful and is for me a mix between Miami style and Sri Lankan modern style. Prices are ok.
