Khmer for “green village”, Phum Baitang is an elegant hideaway wrapped in eight acres of lush gardens and paddy fields near Siem Reap—rural Cambodia at its most beautiful. The 45 spacious, stilted wooden villas, with thatched roofs, form a village-like cluster inspired by traditional design and complemented by local modes of transportation, such as tuk-tuks.
An existing ancient farmhouse on the property has been converted into a lounge and furnished with rattan wing chairs and plush oriental carpets, reminiscent of Cambodia’s golden days. The hotel’s Bay Phsar Restaurant has a local market feel where guests can pick their own fresh ingredients and spices, and where the rice comes from the surrounding paddy fields. A tranquil spa temple, yoga pavilion, and an outdoor pool with bar beckon you to unwind at this ultimate luxury retreat after exploring the wonders of an ancient culture. Phum Baitang is a member of Design Hotels™
