Purple Mangosteen is a beautifully constructed little hide-away, tucked down Siem Reap’s most fashionable street — as fashionable as we get around here anyway — with plenty of prime shopping and dining spots right on the doorstep, but out of the way of the chaos of Pub Street.

Long and lean, the three-storey boutique hotel has just six rooms and a real Mediterranean feel, thanks to the white walls, open spaces, subtle architectural features and beautiful moulded stairway.

The air-con rooms themselves are contemporary, with lots of clean lines and artful bold colours on a predominantly white palette, and gorgeous tiled floors all of which combine to make you feel like you’re standing in a room that should cost a lot more than these do. Rainfall showers in polished concrete bathrooms complete the look. The rooms are full-feature, with minibar, security box and tea and coffee-making facilities.

The hotel is topped with a flat roof with great views across the city, giving you a secluded spot from which to enjoy the sundown and cooling breezes, away from the buzzing crowds below. Meanwhile, the restaurant and bar on the ground floor serves up a selection of beautifully prepared Khmer and Western dishes at mid-range prices. This is a great place to stop by for a coffee, or a glass of wine, even if you’re not staying. Recommended.
