Viroth's Villa

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 fixture.

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.

Save to favouritesPrintMailViroth\'s VillaLike a yin-yang symbol, Siem Reap is a swirling study in contradictions. Crowded yet calm, it has survived a horrific stretch of history but its people are proud of their culture and extraordinary artistic heritage; it is a shockingly poor place yet the residents are industrious, friendly and generous - especially with their smiles. In such a city, Viroth’s fits nicely. Compared to the often dusty, hot streets outside its walls, it is a sparkling-clean oasis of peace, contemporary décor and simple comforts. Tucked on a side street that runs parallel to the Siem Reap River, the space has a quiet and secret feel as the road sees very little traffic. Inside is a very welcome sight: a small but pretty saltwater pool nestled in a corner of the outdoor tropical lobby. A slick lounging couch and collection of vintage Buddha statues next to the mirror-tiled reception desk completes the welcoming atmosphere. The rooftop hosts a plant-filled lounge where bright yellow chairs contrast with dark wooden tables, and an inviting selection of seating options invite lingering after [eating:CA013:breakfast].
