Sala Lodges

Sala Lodges • Siem Reap, Cambodia

JW Signature Hotel

We love this property as it is stunning and offers a very unique experience. This hotel focuses on minimalist luxury and provides a balance between the rustic, rural setting and modern comfort. The lodges are comprised of eleven traditional wooden houses on stilts and this little “village” is situated outside of Siem Reap. Each of the lodges are traditional houses from the Cambodian countryside which were dismantled, transported and restored. The oldest lodges date from the late 1950s. While the exterior has been carefully conserved, the interiors are comfortable and decorated with local artisanal touches.

Rating: Everything Off Ratings Guide

Upside: This is definitely one of the most unique properties in all of Southeast Asia, surrounded by Cambodia’s stunning countryside but only minutes from Siem Reap town centre

Downside: There are only 11 “lodges” and they get booked up far in advance

Insider Tip: Request a special private dinner set up on your own terrace with personalized service throughout the evening.
