This low-slung French colonial–style property may be compact, but it packs a punch, from the pillared, open-air lobby to the lushly landscaped outdoor pool, a refreshing place to end a long day of exploring the labyrinthine canals of the Mekong Delta. The riverside location gives guests front row seats to the wonders of the Mekong, from floating fishing villages to waterborne markets.
Bed and Bath
Each of the 92 rooms has gleaming hardwood floors, handsome colonial furniture and a muted palette of cream and gold. Upgrade to a Deluxe Room or Suite for views of the bustling Bassac River, or gaze upon the riot of activity in Chau Doc from the Superior and Standard Rooms.
The hotel arranges excellent excursions, including cooking lessons in a small Cham village, water safaris in the Tra Su Nature Reserve, river journeys in traditional sampans and hikes among the cave pagodas of Sam Mountain. Afternoons and evenings are spent on more leisurely pursuits, including herbal massages on the rooftop spa or games of billiards, backgammon or bridge. But the best seats in town are at the hotel’s riverfront café tables, the perfect place to sip beer as the sun sets over Chau Doc’s busy watery highway.
How to Get There
This beautifully refurbished French colonial hotel on the Mekong River waterfront hits every high note. It's clean, comfortable, and charming, with great views and a lovely pool overlooking the river. The service is great, with superb touches including free rental bikes, and traditional crafts and music being performed live in the lobby. We wish we could have stayed longer!
This hotel is fulfilling its promises. Most people stay one day here to take the shuttle to pnong penh at 7am, so if you are not leaving, eat after 7,or will be quiet in the restaurant. It has the accommodation and service level of a good 4* hotel, so highly recommendable for spoiled western tourists. ????
A stunning old charm colonial feel about this riverside hotel.
Pre dinner drinks on the veranda, followed by an excellent dinner outside.
The service was refined and impeccable.
My avocado and prawn starter was delicious, as was my beef curry. My husband's pizza waa, however disappointing. He did agree that it was a risky choice.
