Tropical gardens bursting with flowers, pretty chalets with romantically decorated rooms, a small shady pool and a modern restaurant in a traditional Khmer villa: this is Kompong Thom's lovely Sambor Village.

When someone first mentioned that Kompong Thom now has a boutique hotel, many eyebrows had to be retrieved from the ceilings of Siem Reap; but it’s not just there, it’s booming. With just 19 rooms, we would recommend booking well in advance in the high season, as they were full during the time we stayed there in the low season — while hotels in Siem Reap were staring at their doors willing someone, anyone, to walk through. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the front of house team spoke excellent English, and French as well. They can help you to organise tours and onward travel as you need. The rooms are simple but elegant with mosquito-net draped four-poster beds, powerful showers, and all mod cons including mini-fridge and flat-screen TVs. The suites offer a lounge area and also have bath tubs. Rates include breakfast.
