Phnom Penh, KH – relaxing by the rooftop pool (Ian Yacobucci/Borderless Travels)

It’s easy to admit that arriving in Phnom Penh is a bit overwhelming at first, the organized chaos of the city’s streets are a sight to see in themselves. Everyone seems to be late for an important event all the time. The beauty in the dusty commotion was a wonderful discovery and I will always remember my time here. Amidst the hustle and bustle, there is an escape. If you are feeling run down from the city and you want a Zen-like recharge for relatively cheap, The Palm Boutique is a great choice.


The Palm Boutique is in a great location for travellers of all kinds, many of the main Phnom Penh sites within a 15 min Tuk Tuk ride while avoiding the tourist traps.

Must see Phnom Penh sites I would recommend are The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (15 min Tuk Tuk ride), The Killing Fields (30-40 min from The Palm Boutique) and The Central Market only 12 min away. Learn more on how to get the most out of your visit to Phnom Penh.

What you Get

Palm Boutique

Phnom Penh, KH – Deluxe Twing Room at The Palm Boutique Hotel in (Ian Yacobucci/Borderless Travels)

Amenities- The Palm Boutique has rooms to fit every traveller’s accommodations. Rooms come fully stocked with all the travel essentials and there is a roof top restaurant bar and pool to boot. Relax in the sun during happy hour while you enjoy the sights and sounds of the buzzing city below.

The staff is super friendly and keen to please you in any way they can. Something I noticed was the design of the hotel itself, as you walk into the hotel you experience a wave of tranquility due to the indoor lily ponds and the statues of happy Buddha’s. The Palm Boutique is very clean and open concept, giving you the opportunity to breathe in your vacation a little deeper.

Room- You can indulge or rest soundly with a variety of sized rooms for any specific needs. You can live like a queen with a Superior Queen Room for as low as $59.00 a night or if you have a big family or a group of friends you can live the high life in a Family Suite with 2 bedrooms and an awesome view.

Breakfast- Breakfast is included and you can choose between a buffet with a good mix of local flavors and western breakfast essentials depending on your specific tastes. The breakfast staff is incredibly nice and always ready to serve, just remember to say “Akoun” (thank you).

Why you should Stay

Staying at The Palm Boutique is an easy choice for anyone looking for relaxation and comfort in Phnom Penh. I would definitely recommend the stay and would personally visit again. The rooftop pool was a huge benefit as Phnom Penh is a seriously busy city and the rooftop creates ideal location for a break in between tourist stops.
