Arun Villa – Phnom Penh

DSC_9410Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, is a crazy but fascinating city. While planning our recent family trip to the Kingdom, we wanted to find a hotel out the rat race, but still close to the river front and cafes.

We struck gold! The Arun Villa is a perfect place to hang out, chill out and enjoy your time in the capital city. The property is extremely well presented, staff are attentive, if not a little shy. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

Downstairs is the small pool, not ideal for doing laps, but perfect for cooling off at the beginning, middle or end of a hot day. The gardens are well maintained and through out the villa are balconies with chairs and tables, perfect for a book or a snooze!

Breakfast was included and with freshly cooked eggs, toast, fruit, juices and coffee/tea, one could always start the day on a full tummy!

The location of the Arun Villa is down a small residential street away from the chaos of the city, but still only 10 minutes to the riverside, Central Market or the Russian Market. Several tuk tuk’s hang outside on the street, eager to take you anywhere you like, for a small fee!

Over all, we really enjoyed our stay at Arun. I have been traveling to Cambodia for over decade working as a Tour Guide and was one of the better properties I have stayed.

Note – Due to technical issues with my smart phone, only 1 image was saved. Beer and pool – it’s important! But photos on their website are accurate!
