Discover the Real Cambodia at the Sala Lodges
Perched in the verdant jungle trees, in the capitol of the Siem Reap Provence, a bespoke luxury hotel has been created from the authentic and iconic homes of Cambodia. At the Sala Lodges, hand built and intricately designed stilted houses have been thoughtfully moved and preserved to create a village of sorts at this elegant hotel destination. Only a short walk to the famed Temples of Angkor, Sala Lodges represents all of the mystery, beauty, and imagination that is Cambodia.
Welcome to the Village
As the 11 houses that comprise the guest quarters at Sala Lodges were recovered and moved, each was adored for its unique beauty and charmingly subtle character. As such, the owners of the hotel graciously accepted the immense responsibility of preserving the dwellings, not only keeping their structure intact, but their overall character as well.
Guests may choose to stay in houses such as the House Bram where modern amenities on the interior have been tucked away inside of the exquisite architecture, or the House Bram Bei, where the distinct horizontal cladding and bamboo embellishments are just as refined as the interior appointments. While 9 of the houses are an ideal choice for couples or small families, the House Pi & Bei and the House Boun are the optimum choice for groups of four to six travellers. Each of these quaint multi room homes offers the luxury amenities that a worldly guest would require, wrapped in the utopian grandeur of minimalistic Cambodian design.
Cambodian Fine Dining
Guests have a myriad of dining options and venues while staying at the elegant Sala Lodges. Each restaurant blends the finest aspect of Eastern and Western cuisines, creating menus that are impeccable journeys for the palate. At the Monolith and Bar, the flavours of the season are served in a contemporary atmosphere. Communal dining options include the Long Table and Lounge, where international wines and multicultural flavours are served al fresco. For a more private affair, allow the staff at the Sala Lodges to prepare and serve a romantic meal on the terrace of your own Lodge.
East Leisure at its Finest
Guests will never want for a more relaxing area than that of the Sala Lodges. Here, travellers will discover a Frangipani shaded salt water pool, a boutique, a well stocked library, and a games room. Additionally, guests need only ask for the benefits of a Bodia Spa massage in the privacy of their own home.
There are a number of bespoke excursions which depart directly from the Sala Lodges. After choosing your preferred method of transportation, which could include Tuk Tuk, boat, motorbike, or kayak, guests are given an amazing assortment of adventurous options for exploration. From visiting the Temples of Angkor to traversing the well worn jungle paths, from flying with the gibbons to archeological studies and nature tours, the options are seemingly endless.
Cambodia, a country rich in mystique and inherent hospitality, has remained pristinely untouched. Travellers wishing to discover this lost land will find all the luxury and service they could ever desire at the Sala Lodges.
