The Pavilion

Aug 21, 2009

A SHORT WALK SOUTH OF the Royal Palace and trendy Street 240. First Impressions – hidden behind a wooden door and a high wall, the pool and garden feel like an oasis of calm. The hotel is housed in a tastefully restored 1920’s-era villa, thought to have been built by former King Sihanouk’s mother. Through the undergrowth is a second, more recently built villa.

The 20 rooms all differ, with those in the older villa featuring high ceilings, original floral-motif tiled floors and a scattering of antique furnishings, photographs and fixtures like Bakelite switches that will appeal to frustrated colonialists. The four ground-floor rooms in the newer building have four-poster beds, splashes of silk and, best of all, private 6-meter pools. Bathrooms are underwhelming but perfectly functional.
