Amongst 22 acres of rainforest and tropical gardens, the Independence Hotel is the crown jewel of Cambodia’s art of hospitality. Right next to the ocean on the leafy shore of Sihanoukville Bay, this gateway to nature has been welcoming guests since 1964 and has never stopped being a favourite getaway for travellers.
Villas, suites, studios, eco-pods, and rooms accompany historic golden age architecture, a private beach, and an ocean promenade. This striking blend of enviable facilities and views makes the Independence Hotel a must stay for a tailor made holiday to Cambodia.
The first beach resort in the country, the Independence was a new project that King Norodom Sihanouk invited luminaries around the world to stay at. Jacqueline Kennedy, for example, stayed here in 1967.
It has a pristine white sand beach of its own, a long pier, and a terrace-promenade by the beach leading to the infinity pool over the ocean. It’s the ultimate beach resort, complete with landscaped gardens and mature tropical trees.
The Jouvence Spa and Fitness centre is home to a range of well being treatments, modern fitness machines, and an area for instructor led fitness classes. The beach is equipped with sunbeds, a playground, tennis courts, volleyball fields, and a club offering light meals. There is a second pool in the resort which has its own bar, and a gift shop is open selling locally made souvenirs.
There are multiple dining spots onsite, making it great for families. The Oceanview Restaurant serves a variety cuisines in gorgeous semi-open air surroundings, and the Coral Restaurant is the main indoors restaurant open throughout the day.
