Siem Reap, Cambodia
Three of the 7 guest rooms are on the ground floor, the remaining 4
on the floor above; all bar one have outdoor space. Large in
size, minimalist in style, they provide a refreshing calm after
spending the day ogling ornate temples and experiencing
sensory-overload at the markets. Colour is used sparingly: grey
floor tiles and concrete surfaces on the sink and shower area make
the splash of red on the outside of the shower partition extra
striking. Speaking of splashing, you can do plenty of it in the
extra-large shower space featuring a gigantic rain-head
The queensized platform beds covered in a soothing chocolate-coloured comforter are the perfect place to rest temple-tested feet and backs. Air con and a powerful ceiling fan keep things cool. Recessed lighting above the beds is a little bright, but contributes to the modernist feel as the room is thus uncluttered by lamps. Decorative details are provided by natural objets d’art, inspired by the Cambodian landscape.
A small bookshelf area holds a TV with a surprisingly good selection of channels, as well as a 'desk area' to hook up your computer and take advantage of the hotel’s free WiFi – although the bench on which you sit to do this is not suitable for people of all heights.
Storage space is impressive: large closets with ample hangers, a sink big enough for 2 people to unpack their entire toiletry kits, and lots of shelves and nooks for keeping things neat plus a safe. A built-in daybed provides a nice spot for reading.
Rooms on the ground floor (#1, 2 and 3) all have private outdoor patios, the one belonging to room #1 being the most secluded. Of the first-floor rooms, #4, 5 and 7 all have balconies, with room #7 being a favourite thanks to its proper desk area and view over the pool. Room #6 has no outdoor space but is private, spacious and quiet.
