Authentic luxury hotel
Authentic and Sustainable
Sala Lodges is more than a hotel, offering its guests a unique, authentic experience. The eleven traditional wooden houses on stilts in this “idyllic village” situated 8 km from the architectural site of Angkor, contribute to the preservation of an architectural heritage, which is threatened with extinction. By choosing existing Khmer houses to conserve their aged lustre, the founders of Sala Lodge allow you to delve into a genuine Cambodian world.
and their history
Discovered in the Cambodian countryside, dismantled, transported and restored, the houses at Sala Lodges all have individual histories and architecture. The oldest date from the late 1950s. While the exterior has been carefully conserved, the interiors have been carefully converted to meet the exacting standards of guests. Subtly decorated with local artisanal touches, each house reveals a pure and refined interior. Sala Lodges makes simplicity an absolute luxury.
Authenticity and contrasts
The communal areas provide clean, contemporary lines and are in direct contrast with the traditional houses. The restaurant and bar situated at the entrance, the table d’hote and open air lounge in the heart of the « village »and finally, the infinity pool which looks toward the sunset are all places to meet up and chat.
Flavours from home
In the kitchen, the Chef and his brigade concoct dishes that subtly blend Khmer and Western flavours. Each morning one of the cooks wanders through the local market to select the best produce. Seasonal fruits, vegetables and spices from our garden are to be found at the heart of the dishes. Guests can choose a wine from our international wine list to complement the dishes.
Rice paddies and palm trees
The garden plunges visitors into the heart of the Cambodian countryside with sugar palms, rice paddies, banana trees and betel palm. The luxuriant botanical path allows you to smell, harvest and taste the flavours of the region. In season, residents are able to help with the harvesting and sowing of the rice.
The staff are the real highlight and were wonderfully attentive and helpful. They made it a joy to come home and simple to plan our outings. (…) Our only disappointment was having to leave and we now hope to be back one day.
Just perfect in every little detail. Amazing rooms with Cambodia style and western comfort, great breakfast, we were looking forward to having it! Fantastic dinner and memorable service, friendly and helpful staff always taking care of you! Would love to chat me back!
We loved the personal service here. The staff couldn't do enough for us. They have a seemingly magic system which means each time you're in your room you are left alone, but as soon as you're out, they'll pop in to tidy up.
(…) It's easy to be blown away by the uniqueness of the accommodation, the personalised service where every need is anticipated and delivered effortlessly. (…)
If you want to feel like you are on holiday with friends whilst staying in Siem Reap - stay at beautiful Sala Lodges.
TripAdvisor extract from Donna J, Sydney, Australia, Stayed December 2015, travelled as a couple
The location is excellent! Staff is friendly. The houses are beautiful and the atmosphere is lovely.
No review I've read so far truly captures how amazing this place is. The staff; unbelievable. Attentive, friendly, sincerely out to give you the best experience. My stay there fell on my 30th bday and I wont bother to try and explain how amazing the team made my night. The food; incredible. You just won't want (nor need) to leave the premises once you've arrived. the property; stunning, with beautiful lodges that make you feel like you're so much further away from the hustle and bustle than you really are.
(…) Autre point fort : le service, digne d'un 5 étoiles, est très accueillant et chaleureux : à chaque rentrée de visite on nous attend avec un sourire, un petit cocktail et une serviette fraiche! Bref un hôtel où il fit bon rester.
Absolutely amazing. The individual houses are so charmingly done, the restaurant is great, and the staff is friendly and welcoming. The staff takes care of absolutely everything you could possibly need and do their best to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.
... das Hotel-Konzept, der Service, die Freundlichkeit, die Ruhe, der Pool, der ..., die ..., das ...!
Wer etwas spezielles sucht, kommt hier voll auf seine Kosten:
- geschmackvoll eingerichtet, einfach und viel Sinn für schöne Details
(…) The best thing about the whole stay was the staff - they were wonderful - each and every one of them.
Would definitely go back if we return.
