Yes, infant, correct. (I'm not really sure, when do they stop being "infants"?)Alexandra wrote: You have an infant correct? It's not like they refused your quiet 16 year old. They were too polite to tell you that people don't spend $200 to sit down and listen to your baby playing on his iPad or screaming like they normally do in public in Cambodia. If you're not staying in the hotel I really don't know what you're doing at Rosewood with kids.
I'm very conscientious, and would not be in any restaurant/bar with him playing an iPad, screaming, or crying. I figured that at 5/5:30 PM, before the sun even went down, that my group of four (plus him) could sit an enjoy a drink and the view. Staying at the hotel or not shouldn't matter, but it seemed to me that even if I was staying in the hotel, that they wouldn't have allowed it.
I guess I was surprised that an open aired restaurant/bar wouldn't let us at a reasonable hour of the day. Have you been there? It's a pretty relaxed environment, at a 5-star hotel. The "under 18 rule" is most likely their global policy of not serving alcohol to those under 18, and doesn't relate to me having a beer with my son.logos wrote:I very much doubt you'd be able to take a toddler to some British pubs except on family brunches. Why do you assume you should be exempt of written rules, just because you're a Westerner in Cambodia?Any bar in the US or Europe would let you in at 5:30 PM with your well behaved infant, but they were told here “no one under 18 can come in and drink.”
I guess I was just surprised to be denied, which did not happen when I traveled to the U.S. or to Europe. It comes back to my original question, and I guess Alexandra and Logos would say that even during daylight hours, one should not go to a bar like atmosphere with their little one.
