Location is always the a key consideration, but with the chaotic pace of life and congestion in the heart of Phnom Penh, it is wise to choose a hotel that is in a quiet location and has every basic thing at your fingertips. The Rambutan Resort is centrally located in a quiet residential area close to Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, the art deco Central Market, Wat Phnom – the historic hilltop Buddhist complex built on site of 14th century pagoda, Russian Market, Independence Monument and a short ride to the bustling Riverside promenade, National Museum and the Royal Palace. Tuk-Tuk (motorbike and trailer carriage) is by far the best option for a fun way to see the city sights.
On arrival, you step away from a residential street into an oasis and set a scene of tranquil serenity, a refreshing outdoor saltwater pool with a waterfall and cabanas adjacent to the pool bar/restaurant covering all meal options all day. The art works on display stands out with its Oriental charm motif with simplicity, so already the ambience has made a statement that exudes intimate resort chic and makes you feel quite comfortably at home, which is very reassuring when exploring a new city.
