The Balé Phnom Penh


The Balé Phnom Penh, studded with historic pieces of the Khmer culture

A masterpiece of modern Asian design, The Balé Phnom Penh sets a new standard for luxury in the Cambodian capital. Highly contemporary but accented with Khmer artefacts, it exudes Zen-like serenity only a few miles from the city centre.

Eighteen suites – most grouped around a courtyard and four facing the mighty Mekong – are the essence of pared back luxury, with clean lines, sumptuous bathrooms and private garden areas in some.

A lifestyle retreat, The Balé boasts a riverfront pool to unwind by during the day, a gym with a personal trainer on hand and an intimate spa where treatments are focused on Cambodian massage and aromatherapy.

The resort’s restaurant, Theato, is a culinary destination in its own right, where world-class chefs prepare vibrant Khmer dishes and serve them in the restaurant, outdoors overlooking the river or in the privacy of your suite.
