Villa Langka

A lush escape

More on Phnom Penh

With all the construction going on in the northern reaches of this part of Phnom Penh, the charming and quite lovely Villa Langka offers a getaway awash with greenery accentuated by a sparkling pool.

Travelfish says:

Business was booming the day we swung by in mid January 2019, with only one room—an unmade superior—available to be seen, but the welcoming staff were still happy to walk us through. The room directly overlooks Wat Langka—an enviable outlook shared by only three rooms in the entire charming complex. Rattan chairs sat on the small veranda that looks over the temple, or, if too hot outside, you could still enjoy the view from the safety of your air–con room.

While the room was unmade, it was still of a good size, with Buddhist-inspired floral motifs on the wall, a desk and enough shelving. Rooms come with air–con, LCD TV and free WiFi standard. We were told other superiors, while the same overall size, do have different layouts—if you want to overlook the temple, do put in a special request when making a reservation.

The grounds are lush and green. Palms and other grand trees provide plenty of shade and cool the air around the moderately sized rectangular pool which is lined with white mattress recliners. We also loved the inverted umbrellas you’ll walk under to reach reception.

Long running and still going strong, with staff who remain helpful and engaging, Villa Langka is a good option for a mid–ranged resort that will certainly leave a firmer imprint in your memory than one of the other more bog standard hotels in this part of Phnom Penh.
