Tucked a little out of the way to the south of the city, Rambutan Resort is a stylish and classy retreat from the hustle of uptown Phnom Penh. While it’s certainly in a quieter part of town, it’s still only a short ride away from the capital’s major attractions.

An urban retreat from the urban crush.

The decidedly boutique hotel, which pitches itself as gay-friendly, has just 19 rooms set in two conjoined, modernist, three-storey buildings built around a hook-shaped pool. The look and feel is hip and urban, with plenty of smoothly polished concrete and graphic lines neatly offset by splashes of vivid colour. The contemporary artworks by Christian Develter and Yue Minjun are worthy of further exploration and add a wonderful edge of quirk.

Belgian, Bangkok-based artist Christian Develter is making a splash in Cambodia.

The equally stylish rooms are spacious, with plenty of storage space, separate rainfall showers and toilet, and a discrete wash area to the side. The wide, comfortable beds are really tough to leave. You can choose from a pool or garden view, or the large rooftop penthouse complete with rooftop bath overlooking the neighbourhood. The staff here were fabulous when we stayed with them in September 2015; fun, friendly, efficient and very helpful, all the way down to the parking guy who had a smile you could bottle.

Designed for society.

Social design.

The restaurant downstairs serves a decent range of Khmer and Western food, or you could take the opportunity to lounge around the pool, which is popular on the weekends among those who enjoy a sun-splashed chat, and maybe a cocktail or two. There’s no spa as such, but you can reserve an in-room massage between 10:00 and 21:00, with prices starting at $14 for an hour of reflexology or $16 for a one-hour head, back and shoulder massage.

If you’re looking for a pool and boutique life a little closer to the action, try The 252 off Monivong Boulevard or Hotel Nine in Tonle Bassac.
