A touch of class

The doors will soon be open at The Governor's House
Enjoyed a lovely lunch today at an exclusive boutique hotel that is soon to formally open its doors in the city, The Governor’s House, located on Mao Tse Tung Boulevard, and was then told it was their first lunch serving. Great start if you ask me, tasty Khmer food and very pleasant setting on decking next to their swimming pool. This top of the range hotel has ten rooms lovingly designed by Belgian art collector/designer Alain Garnier, with high-class decoration and furnishings throughout the rooms and public spaces of this four-storey colonial-style mansion. The swimming pool and shady outdoor dining terrace are next to a more formal dining room and extensive wine cellar, and soon-to-be completed spa. The tasteful rooms are split between the three upper floors, surrounding a sun-blessed atrium and featuring rooms dedicated to personalities from Ernest Hemingway to Tintin to Jackie Kennedy. Each room is bursting with original antiques, high-quality comfortable bedding, Jacuzzi bathtubs or rain showers with a contemporary-cum-cosy feel to them. Definitely a distinctive newcomer to the city’s accommodation stable that will hope to convert top-range clientele looking for something more refined and personal.

I'd like to be there one day - but it's too expensive...
