12 stylish boutique hotels in Cambodia


A decade ago Cambodia was in recovery, memories of the civil war still raw.

Today entrepreneurs are setting up new businesses as fast as they can, with many choosing to go into the small hotel trade.

These boutiques span the spectrum from converted colonial buildings to sparkling, high-tech designer pads. Here are 12 that combine affordability with a large slice of style.

1. La Villa, Battambang

Quiet Battambang grows on you. La Villa, a colonial townhouse dating back to the 1930s, first fell into the hands of the Vietnamese army, then a Cambodian general and finally squatters before it was brought back to its original art deco life.

Wooden four-posters draped with muslin stand proud on antique tiled floors, the only constant within the seven very different and elegant rooms.

The bar continues the art deco theme, and the restaurant spills outside, so guests can eat inside or in the garden.

Value add: The pool is perfection.
Rooms from US$55.

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem
    to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a format
    issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you
    know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem
    resolved soon. Many thanks
