Journeys Within Boutique Hotel
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Of course this is one of our Signature Hotels. In fact it is THE signature hotel!
Opened by Brandon and Andrea in 2003, Journeys Within started as simple rooms in the main house but expanded in 2005 to include bungalows and a beautiful pool as well. The true beauty of Journeys Within, beyond the crystal clear pool, unique showers, delicious food, and lovely landscaping, is the staff. Genuine, kind and fun, the Journeys Within team, from cooks to guides, is what makes your stay such an amazing experience.
The service and the experience of being at a hotel that truly cares about the community. Being able to talk to westerners living in the country.
A little ways out of town so you can't walk to restaurants or shopping.
Ask Narla to tell you how he came to be a university graduate managing Journeys Within, and don't go home without trying the caramel corn.
We like to think that Journeys Within B&B can be an example for other hotels as they start to integrate local community projects into their business plans and budgets. Journeys Within Our Community was founded by Andrea and Brandon Ross in 2005 and has since then provided scholarships, clean water, microfinance, and free classes to communities in Siem Reap Province and beyond. Journeys Within takes it to the Nirvana level by involving their guests in projects and volunteering and giving them the opportunity to see where their donations are going.
