Stunning setting. Check. Dreamy design. Check. Tropical tranquility. Check! We invite you to experience Cambodia at its best. Just 10 minutes outside Siem Reap, the gateway to the Angkor Wat temple complex and one of the world’s premier travel destinations, you can find the real Cambodia of rural beauty. Here, you can explore floating villages or just cycle through the rice paddies as an antidote to the bustle of town. Welcome to Phum Baitang, one of the newest luxury design hotels in Cambodia, wrapped in eight acres of lush gardens and paddy fields.
Today’s travelers are looking for a true and authentic experience. Now you can choose to stay at Phum Baitang, perfect for getting away from the temple crowds and finding serenity. The green village-like clusters of Phum Baitang resort ensure total cultural immersion in Cambodia’s mystical Siem Reap. Opened in September 2015, this boutique-luxe hotel offers anything you can think of: morning yoga, cooking classes, rice-paddy dinners, a 50m pool, children’s playground, full spa including a sauna, steam room plus gym and much more to make your stay memorable. Phum Baitang, sister-hotel of stylish ski Le Chalet Zannier in Megève, is nothing like a big and impersonal hotel as you can find somewhere else in the area of Siem Reap.
With Phum Baitang the owner Arnaud Zannier succeeded in creating another pure & pretty place. The look & feel? Perfecting the balance between five-star luxury and local authenticity, the design of Phum Baitang hotel is a contemporary take on traditional Cambodian architecture. Think lots of neutral weaves, wood and stone. Style junkies will absolutely adore this gorgeous getaway in Cambodia designed by the Paris architecture firm AW2. They decided to re-create the traditional houses that farmers live in. Phum Baitang means “Green Village” in Khmer, and this luxury boutique resort has the feel of a small community.
This peaceful patch of paradise is home to 45 stilted wooden villas with living spaces, gardens and terraces. The 25 terrace villas are 80m2, while the 20 pool villas are 130m2 and offer private plunge pools. The pool villas are the perfect place to relax to the max. All the super stylish villas are equipped with everything you would expect from an exclusive design hotel: a private bathroom fitted with a hot tub, iPod station, coffee machine and a flat-screen TV with satellite channels. For friends or families, 2 villas can be adjoined to form larger residences. The “Guest Assistance” is your go-to guy for anything you may want.
The restaurants and bar, inside a 100 year old Khmer stilted house, are again very attractive. One restaurant, Bay Phsar, offers a local market feel and views over the surrounding rice paddies & gardens. Here, you can pick your own fresh ingredients and spices. The other hotel restaurant, Hang, serves a fusion of cultural cuisine. Phum Baitang hotel has its own organic garden so the herbs and vegetables are super fresh.
Brighten up your morning with a yoga session followed by a power breakfast. In the lush gardens lies the infinity pool where you can enjoy the constant tropical soundtrack, Cambodian sun and the laid-back approach to life.
