For a long while, La Villa was Battambang’s premier (indeed only) luxury hotel.

But even as more modern, and dazzling, resorts have sprung up around town, La Villa is still by far the most romantic, classic destination that holds its own despite the gross monstrosities that have been allowed to be constructed alongside it. Many have been tempted to write La Villa off as a result of these boils on the face of Siem Reap’s riverside, but that is to miss the sheer elegance of the seven spacious, bright and airy rooms, all individually decked out with antique furniture, stunning tilework, and details that made us almost giddy, like muslin mosquito nets, bakelite light switches, and the way everything works just so. The staff too are friendly, helpful and very professional.

The back garden has been largely cleared, but is a lovely spot for enjoying a glass of wine and dinner under the shade of two huge tamarind trees. The restaurant is very highly rated, and we are yet to have a bad meal here. Further back a large pool completes the unique package that is La Villa. Your evening meal may be serenaded by KTV singers from next door. Some will find this irritating, though we found the volume, and singing, to be non-intrusive.

Rates include breakfast.
