The 30-room White Mansion is frequently a top-scorer on all the online booking sites, and you only have to step inside to see why. With its mezzanine lobby and grand stairwell entrance, it lives up to its name.
According to the general manager, Sokha Meu, during a tour of the mansion’s sweeping staircases, balconies and exquisitely appointed rooms, it’s a good idea to book ahead, because like may of the boutiques around town, it runs at close to full occupancy on a regular basis.
Winning features include a palm-shaded 25-metre pool with canopied sunbeds, Le Café – an exercise in almost Scandinavian minimalism –and with a pared down menu to match, and Aziadée, a spa that offers aroma-therapy, body treatments, herbal facials and a wide range of massages, as well as manicures and pedicures.
The White Mansion spa is open daily from 9 am to 9 pm.
