We flashed our business class boarding pass and entered the one-room lounge, which fortunately has plenty of seating for its small size. At first glance it didn't seem like much, but it was nice refuge from the rigid and crowded seats of the general boarding area. Add to the perks some complimentary coffee alcoholic beverages, light bites and super fast and free wifi, and we couldn't really complain.
The initial browse over the buffet area surprised us with a variety of options, including pre-packaged noodle dishes, petit-fours, sandwiches and fresh fruit. We weren't going to be left hungry for our short flight to Vietnam and, even though we were flying in the mid-morning, it didn't stop us from savoring one last Angkor, the national beer of Cambodia.
One of the best reasons to hit the lounge before flying is to get a few extra bars of charge for your devices; the lounge has passengers covered with plenty outlets, even if they're not installed in a glamorous way. Look for power strips peeking out from sofas.
Overall, lounge focuses on function over form but considering you're probably not headed on too far of a long-haul flight from Phnom Penh, it does its job to provide some comfort and refreshment well.
