Arts Lounge & Thev Gallery

The Arts Lounge

Bill Bensley designed the Arts Lounge with the intention that it would be a multi purpose space - a stunning art gallery, stylish bar, welcoming lounge and adaptable creative event space for guests and visitors to the hotel.

The Thev Gallery

As part of her work at "delaPaix", curator Sasha Constable opened the Thev gallery at the hotel in July 2011. The gallery aims to show artworks from previous Arts Lounge exhibitions plus additional works to promote some of the inspirational community causes which form such a fundamental part of the hotels raison d’être. Named after a traditional Khmer walk-through gallery which leads to a main temple, the Thev Gallery launched with an exhibition of photographs highlighting the humanitarian mine clearance work of the HALO Trust in Cambodia; and of sculpture made from decommissioned weapons, courtesy of the 2003 Peace Art Project Cambodia.


We regularly hold Ice Events and new art exhibition launches where the Arts Lounge is shown off to its full capacity.

Hôtel de la Paix actively supports emerging Khmer artists and artists with a connection to the country and the revival of art in Cambodia, by exhibiting new artists bi-monthly throughout the year. For many artists this is a vital stepping-stone for them at the beginning of their careers.

Our resident curator and artist Sasha Constable has lived and worked in Cambodia since 2000, when the World Monuments Fund, a non-profit organization that preserves historic buildings worldwide, appointed her Artist in Residence. Sasha and Savann Oun, her assistant, are regularly available in the Arts Lounge should you wish to purchase or discuss any of the work being exhibited.
