Hotel Review

The Balé Phnom Penh is a luxury hotel in Cambodia which showcases the best of modern Asian architecture and design. Nestled on the banks of the Mekong River this Lifestyle Retreat enjoys breathtaking views across the water. Surrounded by fragrant frangipani trees, spider lillies and lemongrass, the setting is as tranquil as it is beautiful. This hotel perfectly represents the PassionForLife philosophy of Lifestyle Retreats a unique concept developed and perfected over the years, and practiced at all Lifestyle Retreats properties. The result is a unique hotel that is run with skill and dedication by its own staff ‘Family’, and that blends with and supports the local environment and people.

The fourteen large minimalist Courtyard Suites are set around a grassy courtyard, and the four stunning Riverfront Suites boast views across the Mekong River. Each one has been immaculately designed, combining contemporary furnishings with tradition Cambodian artefacts. Highly-trained butlers are on hand to service your every need.

Take a dip in the riverside pool and dine by candlelight under the star-strewn skies. Enjoy a fine dining experience with delicious local and international dishes in the elegant Theato restaurant. Private in-suite dining is also available.

The Balé Phnom Penh is setting the bar for luxury hotels in South East Asia.
