Aquarius Hotel & Urban Resort, Phnom Penh

Experiential | Very Good | Excellent | Magnificent | Out of this world


  • Glass-walled rooftop pool
  • Lively bar


The Aquarius Hotel & Urban Resort is a hip hotel housed in a skyscraper in Phnom Penh. Taking full advantage of its elevation, the designers cleverly installed a glass-walled infinity pool on the roof, creating an incredible feature with sweeping views of the cityscape.

The rooms have a sleek, urban apartment feel about them, providing more comfort and style than the hotel’s industrial looking exterior suggests. For extra space, opt for a Superior or Deluxe room, especially if you like the sound of a private balcony. Go for a suite to bag a view of the Mekong Delta.

The hotel’s spa is small but offers a good range of traditional Khmer treatments if you’re feeling weary after a day sightseeing around Phnom Penh. Although a dip in that refreshing rooftop pool might be all you need to unwind after a busy day.

You can dine on the rooftop, or just grab a beer there if you’ve eaten at one of the restaurants that line the Mekong Delta. Don’t check-out without popping into the hotel’s shop that sells handicrafts by local artists.
