“Sala Lodges stands out with its stylish approach to Cambodia’s architectural heritage. The saltwater pool, outstanding on-site restaurant and lovingly maintained traditional Khmer homes are seductive reasons to stay put – even with the world-renowned Angkor Wat a short drive away.”

Hotel Overview

“For tourists seeking an authentic taste of Cambodia, Sala Lodges offers a glimpse into rural life but with the amenities of a luxury hotel. Eleven traditional Khmer houses, dating back from 1956 - 1985, sit on stilts in the midst of lush foliage, each one sourced by the hotel’s Swiss owners, transported to the hotel grounds and then reassembled to form a charming village compound. Expect stylish simplicity that emphasizes local furnishings and stripped wood, plus roomy bathrooms and wraparound porches. In contrast, the sleek, open-air restaurant boasts concrete flooring, modern design and a menu offering Cambodian cuisine. Snacks and tapas, Western and Cambodian are available in the Lounge or through room service. At the far end of the property, a saltwater pool provides welcome respite from the heat. Early morning temple-goers can request takeaway breakfast goodies, which are thoughtfully packed in a wicker picnic hamper.”

THE HOT LIST 2014

It took more than two years to find 11 disused and authentic Khmer houses in local villages before transporting each one back to this unblemished plot on the edge of Siem Reap and refurbishing them. The results are spectacular: the weathered, stilted villas (dating from 1956 to the 1980s) look like they have always been here, surrounded by orchids and shady trees, a green sanctuary in a town that can feel maddeningly busy and dusty.
