THE INDEPENDANCE HOTEL

Former inauguration: 1963

Architect: M.Mondet
Interior Design: Norodom Sihanouk
 
The hotel was designed by French architect M.Mondet of the partnership Leroy. These architects were responsible for several important buildings in Phnom Penh and provinces during the fifties and sixties. Local still refer to the 7 story hotel and obvious reference to this prominent landmark that sits like a beacon and tropical vegetable on a rocky headland. One hallmark of modernist architecture is the use of a site to add prominence to the architect’s intentions. In this particular case, the marriage works well with the hotel positioned to command view at coastline and the rolling hill of Sihanouk Ville in very direction.
Build at a coast of 30 million Riel, the hotel was constructed to complement the burgeoning tourist in flux in Sihanouk Ville. In 1963, the state tourism authority built economy class beachfront Krung Preah Sihonouk motels, with the construction of the new port and villas that mushroomed along O’Cheuteal beach. Sihanouk was soon wing with kept the custom of beachgoers.
The reinforced concrete building raises 6 floors above a generously high-ceiling foyer, entrance lobby, restaurant and dance floor. As the building was designed to be air-conditioned, there are considerable areas of aluminum-flamed glazed windows; the hotel has 32 air-condition and13 tourist class room. At the time of inauguration, however, Norodom Sihanouk felt the need to consider the addition of another 50 tourist class room in the form of bungalows.
Norodom Sihanouk’s interior design included the use of wall-to-wall carpeting decorative metalwork screens, fabric-covered wooden lounges and chair and important bohemian crystal chandeliers.
Norodom Sihanouk also designed the promenade des Anglais- a garden and walkway at the base of rocky outcrop that skirts independence beach. The lounge and dining room were furnished Direction style. The Royal Suite had three lounges, two dining rooms- two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Photo graphs from the period show color schemes of ochre, orange, red and black, mint green, red and chartreuse adding to the vivacity of interior design. In keeping with a destination for holiday travelers, the hotel was managed by the state-owned authority MAGETAT headed by Khek Vandy, The hotel was closed during the mid-seventies and abandoned to squatters.
