Authentic and Sustainable

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.

The houses
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

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
and abroad

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

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.
