A few minutes away from temple Wat Phnom, which is said to be the foundation point of the city, and the Tonle Sap River, the Sunway Hotel, Phnom Penh couldn’t be more conveniently located. Within the city’s central business district with views over the historical skyline, everything from shops and flea markets to tourist attractions, such as museums, the Royal Palace and many restored temples, is within reach.
After a day seeing all the city has to offer, soothe your feet and cares away with a session at the 12-to-12 Spa. A male-only Jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath will relieve aching muscles but for a little more pampering, try one of the treatments. Book yourself a traditional Thai or aromatherapy massage or a reflexology foot massages in one of the Asian-styled spa suites, or, for a little more privacy with no need to wander back to your bedroom to continue chilling out, choose an in-room massage. Keep the feel-good vibe going and make time too for a mani-pedi, facial massage or hair treatment at the Venus Beauty & Hair Salon next to the Spa.
There’s no such thing as standard at the Sunway, with its 31 sq m Deluxe rooms boasting oversized beds and large bay windows from which to enjoy the city views. Each room even has a writing desk and in-room WiFi, so whether you choose snail mail or email, there’s a way to tell your family and friends what a great time you’re having. Upgrade to a Deluxe Balcony room for extra space or splash out on an Executive Suite with a kitchenette and dining area plus a balcony. For a really relaxing time, choose a Presidential Suite and benefit from butler services, large bathroom with Jacuzzi and lounge.
Whether you take an elephant ride, soak up some history at the nearby Silver Pagoda, Independence Monument or the Royal Palace, or pay a sombre visit The Killing Fields or Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a stay in Phnom Penh means you’ll never be stuck for something to see or do. The Sunway Hotel Phnom Penh's travel desk can advise on tours and transportation and also offer a guide to Phnom Penh day tour, trips to Siem Reap province from Phnom Penh, and other travel arrangements. Inside the hotel, there’s also a fitness centre, spa, gift shop and business centre.
The hotel’s main restaurant, the Sun Café, is where you can go for anything from a hearty breakfast to a leisurely dinner but don’t expect it to be dull. Featuring an open-kitchen concept and with Cambodian and internationally inspired cuisine, there are daily and special themed buffet dinners, from a carving and barbecue night to seafood spreads and afternoon tea. More informal is the Lobby Lounge, great for high tea and cocktails, and the Deli Shop, which offers freshly baked breads and cakes to eat in or take away.
