PHUM BAI­TANG

Discover Cambodia - - SLEEP -

Buxom buf­faloes reg­u­larly traipse slowly around the eight hectares of re­fined green­ery at Phum Bai­tang, the clos­est one can come to a ru­ral Cam­bo­dian ex­pe­ri­ence with­out com­pro­mis­ing on im­pec­ca­ble taste. Raised wooden walk­ways jut out of fully func­tion­ing rice pad­dies, and the sub­tle scent of fresh le­mon­grass per­fumes the grounds, but the real stars of the show are the 45 vil­las, each one a care­ful replica of tra­di­tional stilted houses. In­side, exquisitely scarred floor­boards con­tinue the rus­tic charm along­side an­tique fur­ni­ture and con­tem­po­rary com­forts in­clud­ing free­stand­ing ter­razzo baths and plump beds that prove heartachingly dif­fi­cult to leave.
