The allure of the CCC hotel is not its proximity to Phnom Penh’s sights, its nightlife and cafés, but the fact that once you enter the Cambodia Country Club grounds, you’re no longer in the city at all – you’re actually five minutes drive from Phnom Penh International Airport. Even if horse riding, tennis, badminton or archery don’t appeal, the leafy 25,000-square-metre grounds should.

In short, the 28-room CCC hotel is a boutique hotel with its own sports-themed resort, and a stay in the hotel provides free access to most of the club facilities – guests pay extra for equestrian activities and for archery, but access to the 25-metre salted swimming pool, the children’s pool, and the tennis and badminton are free.

According to hotel manager Tep Sovanna, surprisingly few Phnom Penh residents use the hotel as a weekend retreat from the city, but the getaway would be perfect for families, and the hotel is ready to accommodate them with interconnected two-room suites.

In-resort dining is offered at the Red Stallion, a two-floor Chinese-style restaurant that also offers some Western dishes – including breakfast. Hotel guests are also entitled to a 10 per cent discount at Van’s Restaurant – French haute cuisine in the 150-year-old former Indochina Bank on Street 102.
