Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Standing on the banks of the Mekong River, with breath-taking views, The Balé Phnom Penh, is a unique and elegant property, showcasing the best of modern Asian architecture - You’ll find dramatic walkways, a black-bottomed infinity pond, serene Buddhas and fragrant frangipani trees, with a dazzling 30-metre riverside pool at the centre.
The hotel has 18 large minimalist suites, 14 set around a grassy courtyard and 4 on the river front with optimal views of the Mekong. The design is contemporary with sleek clean lines and touches of Cambodian style through the artefacts and fabrics. The Theato Restaurant offers traditional Khmer cuisine and gives you a choice of setting, be it under a palm tree by the pool, overlooking the river or in the privacy of your own suite.
