Phum Baitang, which means ‘Green village’, is a 5-star luxury hotel on the outskirts of Siem Reap. Set within 20 acres of lush gardens, lemon-grass meadows and rice paddies, this elegant retreat is ideally located just 10 minutes from the majesty of Angkor Wat.
Like all the Zannier hotels, Phum Baitang oozes understated style with a real focus on food and service. Guests are housed in 45 spacious stilted villas − 25 with a private terrace, and 20 with a private plunge pool. Inspired by traditional Kymer architecture, each villa is beautifully decorated with earthy tones, dark wooden floors, and light flowing linens to create an authentic yet luxurious Cambodian experience. Calming yet incredibly indulgent, this is pared back luxury at its finest.
The property boasts some fantastic dining options, with the choice of Bay Phasar, where vibrant Cambodian flavours are showcased to the highest standard, or Hang Bay, which serves a fusion of international cuisine from fresh seafood to sumptuous steak. Enjoy an aperitif at the Cigar and Cocktail Lounge which pays homage to Cambodia’s colonial history in a century-old farmhouse, or sample a refreshing homemade juice or light lunch at the Pool Terrace.
When you are not out exploring the magnificent temples, Phum Baitang is the perfect place to indulge in some downtime. The hotel boasts a temple inspired spa with seven treatment rooms, a yoga pavilion, fitness room, infinity pool, sauna and steam room. And for those travelling with children there is also an impressive kids club. Without doubt this is one of the finest boutique options in Siem Reap.
