Full accommodation information

Zannier Hotels Phum Baitang lies in a bucolic landscape awash with rice paddies and lush gardens, a picturesque backdrop to their collection of rustic-luxe villas, restaurants and a spa, all hewn from wood and stone.

The property has been designed to pay homage to traditional Khmer architecture, so each luxury villa is propped up on stilts above the ground and much of the furnishings and décor stays neutral and earthy, in keeping with the local style.

This exquisite Siem Reap bolthole manages to encapsulate rural chic with effortless panache, its interiors dripping with rough stone, solid wood and delicate fabrics. The result is a real sense of place, without compromising on luxury. For instance, the spa – known as ‘The Temple’ – is a real delight where traditional Khmer rituals can be enjoyed within a soothing, candlelit space, accented with green plants. The swimming pool is also a 50m haven, edged by cabanas and sun loungers for daytime luxuriating, and those ever-present garden views unfold before you no matter where you are.

On top of this sophisticated design and sumptuous facilities, Zannier Hotels Phum Baitang offers yet more treats for its guests while visiting Siem Reap. This includes the complimentary use of bicycles, a kids’ club and opportunities to connect with the region through Khmer cooking classes and rice harvesting. Rounding it all off are the spacious, open-plan villas, all coming complete with their own gardens – some even boast private pools, just for good measure.

The accommodation at Phum Baitang comprises 45 villas perched on stilts across tropical gardens. They mimic traditional Khmer homes, clad in wood and stone, but are bedecked with luxe touches too. Expect freestanding bathtubs in oversized en-suites, pillow-top king-size beds and a host of tech treats, from flat-screen TVs to Bluetooth speakers.

Terrace Villa

Terrace Villa

The 80sq m Terrace Villa looks out over its own garden and patio, though inside you’ll find a king-size bed and sofa bed, dining table, Nespresso machine, minibar, hairdryer and air conditioning.
Pool Villa

Pool Villa

This villa is larger in size at 130sq m, also with a garden, terrace and the same mod-cons as the Terrace Villa. Steps lead down towards the plunge pool, flanked by a cabana, sun loungers and outdoor dining area.

The hotel offers bicycles to borrow during your stay, so getting out and about is all too easy. Otherwise, stay put to make use of onsite facilities including a yoga deck, freeform 50m pool with cabanas and a superlative spa. Not only does the ‘Spa Temple’ feature a gym, sauna and steam room, it goes on to provide treatments as diverse as Khmer rituals, manicures and massages from around the world.

Bay Phsar

Bay Phsar

The main dining venue at Phum Baitang, Bay Phsar caters to a wide range of tastes and appetites, even going so far as to present live cooking demonstrations for diners. Breakfast comes in the form of both buffet and a la carte menus, with a great variety of choice on offer. The same goes for lunch and dinner, where you can indulge in anything from chicken Caesar salad and spaghetti Bolognese to stir-fried seafood and sushi.

Hang Bay

Hang Bay

A formal restaurant open on certain evenings of the week, serving exquisitely prepared western dishes as well as Cambodian fare too; there’s also a special menu for children. Dine indoors or out on the terrace, a blanket of stars sprawled above you.

  • Dinner
Pool Bar

Pool Bar

This casual joint is conveniently perched poolside, offering a mix of drinks and light bites to keep you refreshed.

Cocktail and Cigar Bar

Cocktail and Cigar Bar

Revel in the rather special atmosphere at this characterful bar, found in an old farmhouse that dates back a hundred years. Wooden doors are flung open onto the terrace, dotted with rustic furniture and plump pillows – the perfect spot to see out an evening, drink in hand.

When you’re not exploring the ancient sites of Siem Reap nearby, you could be trying your hand at Khmer cookery with a class, courtesy of Phum Baitang. You’ll start at the local food market to pick your produce, then continue to the hotel gardens to gather more ingredients before attempting the recipes of three different dishes. Wonderfully, the rice is plucked straight from the paddies on Phum Baitang’s doorstep, which little ones can have a go at harvesting as part of the activity program at the kids’ club. They can also enjoy arts and crafts, games and their own special cooking classes.
