ALOHA FROM ASIA | The yellow hibiscus is a dead giveaway. The Ohana Phnom Penh Palace Hotel is designed to capitalize on the Hawaii tourism brand. The hotel attracted the attention of Mary Begmann and her husband, John Young, of Honolulu, who were in Cambodia in December to explore the country's ancient temples. The hotel is a block off the Tonle Sap River in the riverside district of Phnom Penh.
