A historic property located on a private beach in Sihanoukville, Independence Hotel is an elegant resort surrounded by lush tropical forest and offers beautiful sea views.The New Khmer architecture is said to reflect the country’s optimism after gaining independence in the 50s – the interior of the hotel is now a fusion of sleek contemporary lines and traditional Khmer influences.References to the hotel’s past in the form of period photography from Cambodia’s Golden Age are displayed throughout the hotel. The History Lounge creates an ‘old-school’ luxury vibe to showcase the former guests from the 60s (including Jackie O)!This is a resort that feels both sophisticated and laid-back, ensuring you are fully relaxed during your stay.
The Deluxe Rooms are incredibly spacious with bright touches creating a welcoming space.The bathroom offers a deep bathtub with a window into the main room, meaning you are able to check out the sea views when you’re taking a soak!Of course the most impressive feature of the room has to be the floor to ceiling picture windows, letting in an abundance of light and showcasing the amazing scenery.
Boasting a pristine stretch of white sand, turquoise sea and a long pier, Independence is the ultimate beach escape.
Having it’s own private beach, the resort provides a much quieter experience than other options in the area, making this the perfect place to unwind.The Verdict
This resort offers bright and spacious rooms that are great value for money. Located in a peaceful area surrounded by nature, the hotel works hard to maintain a tranquil environment.The incredible views from the room alone, make Independence Hotel a stand out option.
