Sala Lodges
Siem Reap

Sala Lodges is an ideal choice of boutique hotel for those looking for rustic charm rather than first-world luxury. The 11 one- and two-bedroom wooden houses on stilts have all been lovingly sourced, transported and rebuilt to create an authentic Cambodian experience for those staying here. The exteriors match traditional Khmer architectural design while the interiors provide more of a contemporary feel, complete with comfortable beds, modern bathrooms and speedy Wi-fi.  Characterful décor brings some colour and detail into the rooms but does not detract from the overall sense of understated chic aesthetic.

The landscaped tropical garden is brimming with indigenous flora that attracts local birds, geckos and other wildlife, and the eco-friendly property is fringed by palm trees and rice fields, lending a real sense of rural life. Wander peacefully along wooden bridges and stone pathways through paddy fields to the houses, which are tastefully spread out in the grounds around a more modern reception, restaurant (serving both traditional Khmer and Western dishes) and bar. These amenities inject some luxury into this countryside setting, as does the inviting infinity swimming pool, which spans 20 metres and is filled with salt water – the ideal spot in which cool down and unwind after a day sightseeing in the heat while watching the sunset. For those in need of a more relaxing experience, massages are available to book from their Bodia Spa therapists in well-appointed treatment rooms or in the comfort of one’s own private house, and a well-stocked library also provides a quiet haven.

You will have an appointed tuk-tuk driver during your stay here to transfer you to and from Siem Reap town or to the renowned temples of Angkor, so the location being a little away from the bustling town is not an issue. The service here is also of a great standard, as multiple excursions are offered by the welcoming and amenable staff who are always at hand to help within the property. We recommend Sala Lodges for both couples and families, particularly as each house has its own style of Khmer heritage design, making the accommodation suitable for all.

Client Testimonials

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
