Boutique luxury makes a welcome entrance into Phnom Penh with The Bale
The Bale Phnom Pehn Resort is a zen influenced luxurious retreat opened in November 2017. Classic simplicity with the emphasis on light and space. Located in a quiet residential area near the mighty Mekong River. 8 miles from the centre of Phnom Penh and 10 miles from the airport.
The Bale Phnom Pehn Resort has Just 18 Suites. All are extremely spacious with over 100 sqm, including integrated living area.
Highly contemporary and sumptuous, with attractive Cambodian artifacts adding to the real sense of style. Most are grouped around the garden courtyard with 4 having a direct river view.
Restaurant with the focus on Asian cuisine with just a nod towards the Mediterranean
And, of course, some of the most genuine smiles in Asia!
The Bale Phnom Pehn Resort is part of Lifestyle Retreats. Many of you will know them for their collection of fantastic boutique hotels in Bali, including their flagship, The Bale at Nusa Dua.
In many ways, their new property in Phnom Pehn has been influenced by the same clean-cut simplistic elegance. Leonardo Da Vinci said that simplicity is the greatest sophistication. That certainly rings true with The Bale Phnom Pehn Resort.
We think the opening of The Bale shows the rapid emergence of Phnom Penh as a point of interest on a tour around South East Asia. For most, Cambodia is known for Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor, but Phnom Pehn offers something new and exciting for the curious, maybe seasoned traveller.
Yes, the city has had its murky past under the Khmer Rouge in the late 1970s, but the progressive strides, particularly in the last 8 years, have been incredible. Of course, you will see high rise developments, but the city still has many grand French colonial buildings, expansive parks and squares. In many ways it reminds us of Havana in Cuba, but with a French rather than Spanish style.
We have to mention the cuisine options – There are so many pleasant surprises, both with the menu and the innovative settings.
Phnom Penh can easily be incorporated into a tour around the region. There are flights from all of the main cities in the region, as well as domestic connections to Siem Reap and easy road access to Sihanonkville, which is the gateway to the resort islands in the south.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
