6 Reasons to stay at Palace Gate Hotel & Resort

Palace Gate Hotel & Resort offers you a unique vacation for your neighbours are royalty! As the hotel is located right next to the Royal Palace, visiting the palace is only a matter of steps away. With its convenient location, you can easily explore the bustling Riverside area of Sisowath Quay.
2. Deluxe accommodation with a traditional Angkorian feel
I find that the interiors of Palace Gate Hotel & Resort reflect Cambodia’s tradition beautifully. The lobby is decorated to give a modern look and complemented with art and decor that reminisces Cambodia’s heritage. The deluxe rooms are tastefully decorated to give a modern Angkorian feel.
The rooms and suites fall into 6 categories – Royal deluxe room, Royal Suite with Balcony, Royal One or Two Bedroom Suite, as well as the Aspara Deluxe room and Aspara Suite which are located in Building B. All rooms are comfortably furnished to give you a pleasant stay.
The geometric tiled floors, bamboo furniture, ornate mirrors and traditional art aesthetically complement the Phnom Penh skyline views you see from your windows. The plush chairs and cosy rugs gave a homely feel to the room. During our stay, we stayed at the Royal Suite that came with a beautiful balcony allowing us to enjoy the pool view, which was a great way to bide our afternoon.
3. Spend a refreshing afternoon at the Organic Sky Bar or by the Poolside
After a long day exploring the city, head back to the Sky Bar or the pool to treat yourself to a refreshing cocktail. The organic sky bar located on the rooftop gives you a beautiful view of Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers. There is also an organic herb and vegetable garden here that provides Malea, their in-house restaurant with fresh greens.
The pool is also another relaxing place to be. Lounge on the day beds, take a lap across the pool – the entire time feeling enveloped in the greenery that surrounds it.

Mealea is Palace Gate Hotel’s in-house fine-dining restaurant featuring two menus. Embark on a culinary journey to discover authentic Khmer cuisine that will leave your taste buds wanting more. Be sure to try their specialties like the Khmer Beef Stew – even the King of Thailand loves this dish!
Celebrate a romantic evening with their French menu featuring delicious creations like the Pan fried Marble Prime Beef Tenderloin. Do not miss out on the Cream of Mushroom Soup – a creamy concoction topped with a fluffy pastry.
