Heritage Preservation of The Plantation Hotel

As a country that was administered as part of French colonial empire in South East Asia from 1863 to 1953, Cambodia inherits many French colonial architectures that ranges from small houses, residences to grandiose iconic buildings.

One of them is the reception and restaurant building of The Plantation hotel, Phnom Penh, that was originally built in the 30’s, then renovated in the 60’s for the front building of the former Ministry of Labor.

As part of their Urban Heritage Conservation activities, in 2011 The Plantation hotel restored this historical building to its original 1930’s design that was conducted by Michel Verrot, the architect of “Monuments of France“, and architect Ivan Tizianel.

With attractive fusion of east and west decorative details and par-excellence service by the team, The Plantation hotel is appreciated as one of the world’s best new hotels in 2012 by Conde Nast Traveller, as well as one of iconic building that is still well-preserved in Cambodia.
