Find The Best Places To Stay In Cambodia



Travelling through Cambodia has brought us countless memories.  However, dusty trails and hot sun goes hand in hand here. 

Whether you are travelling to Cambodia with Kids and your are looking for affordable accommodation options for your family, or you are chasing that little bit more of a luxury, Cambodia has it all!

Today is all about luxury and relaxation.  Who said that you have to go budget when you travel. 

I believe, that sometimes it is better to unwind with a bit of extra leisure

Chill out and rest your feet on a beach chair or a hammock after a long day of exploring.  Sounds good?  I think it does! 

Well, here are our recommendations of where to stay in Cambodia in luxury.

Where to stay in Cambodia

Accommodation in Siem Reap

To me Siem Reap is the coolest city in Cambodia.  I enjoyed every minute there!  The streets, the markets and the food.  All ridiculously awesome.  Every time I go back to the days spent in Siem Reap, my mind wonders to the Pub Street, where we had some of the yummiest Cambodian cuisine. 

Have you ever had a rice flour pancake with Nuttella, condensed milk and milo?  Yup, you will never forget this one.  Delicious!

The accommodation in Siem Reap that we have chosen was luxurious to the max.  Just outside the city centre and in close proximity to the famous Angkor Way complex.  Perfect location!

Best Hotel to stay in Siem Reap

Navutu Dreams Resort and Spa!  Yes, this is your peaceful oasis and the best hotel to stay in Siem Reap!  The beautiful villas have everything that you need.  Peace and quiet for starters, comfy king size bed, largest bath tub I’ve been in and all the bells and whistles of a 4 Star Cambodia hotel.  I think it could be classed as 5 Star, what do you think?

There is a choice of three pools, all with a different feel and design, to suit your mood on a particular day.  Restaurant has a large selection of delicious Cambodian and western cuisine.  The resort offers variety of extras, like spa, yoga and daily Tuk-Tuk transfers to and from the city.  The staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful with all the needs that you might have.

Phnom Penh Accommodation

Phnom Penh is the Capital of the Kingdom of Wonders!  It is the home to the king of Cambodia and the home to millions of scooter riding locals.  Concrete jungle or not, the capital is the place to visit.  History intertwined with the new, shops on every corner, hustle and bustle of restaurant lined streets and people everywhere.

If you would like to see the city at sunset in its whole glory, check out our Phnom Penh Cruise post here.

The best way is to find the accommodation in Phnom Penh that is close to the river.  You will be closer to all the action of the pretty streets, magnitude of food options and within walking distance from it all.

Check out our recommendation of one of the best hotels in Phnom Penh.

Luxury Hotel in Phnom Penh

The Plantation Urban Resort and Spa is our pick.  This luxury hotel in Phnom Penh is located close to the National Museum of Cambodia.  Within walking distance you can also check out the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the Central Markets.  The hotel offers a selection of stylish and modern rooms to suit your needs.  Enjoy strolling or vegging out in the beautiful gardens. Chill out by the pool or indulge in some favourite delights at the bar.  You can easily spend your day lazing around here and even dining in your room if you like.  I really like this one!

Kep Accommodation

When we arrived to Kep, all I saw was happy faces.  The beach was lined with hammocks, chairs and blankets.  People everywhere and all of them smiling; enjoying family time or a romantic outing with the loved one.  Very pleasant!  As to the famous Kep Crab Markets?  Well, you have scored here!  The choices of crab preparations will amaze you.  Might as well stay at Kep for a few days, so you can taste it all.  My favourite has to be the grilled seafood.  Anything with a little crunch and smoky flavour is better, right?  

When you are looking for where to stay in Kep, you must stay close to the beach side and not too far from the Kep Crab Markets.  Well, look no further, we have found this little gem and a luxury accommodation option for you.

Luxury Kep hotels

Knai Bang Chatt is on the top list of the most luxurious Kep hotels.  This is 5 Start living!  Private beach, valet parking and rooftop terrace.  Yup, it’s all here.  The rooms are modern, funky and spacious.  The rooms have all different themes and colour options.  So choose your favourite colour and spend a few nights here in luxury style.  You can dine on site or get out on the town, it is up to you.  If you enjoy fishing or scuba diving, it is all within reach.  This hotel is in a prime location and still with a reasonable price tag.

Kampot Accommodation

We loved Kampot Cambodia. The town is located by the river with the views of the Elephant Mountains and about 5km from the Gulf of Thailand.  When in town, choices of food and massages are plenty.  However in the evening, when the sun goes down, you can embark on a little journey to a romantic fairy tale.  Have you ever been on a long boat at night on a dark river and all that illuminated the night was the fireflies and bioluminescent plankton?  Sounds pretty awesome?  Because it is!

Luxury Kampot accommodation has a short list and on the top of the best places to stay in Kampot is our recommendation below.

Resort in Kampot

Nataya Resort or Nataya Round House Coral Bay Resort is probably the most luxurious resort in Kampot.  If you are after a bit of fancy and style, then you got it.  Private beach, large pool to relax in, mineral bath and a Jacuzzi, it is all here.  The rooms are elegant, modern and very comfortable.  You can indulge in the Halal inspired cuisine served on the terrace if you like.  Peacefulness and bliss.

Otres Beach Accommodation

Amsterdam of Cambodia, it is the name that I have given to the place.  Yes, it is a party area of the Cambodian beaches.  And why not?  If you are that way inclined, then this is the place for you.  I love this place, not for the mind altering goodies that you can purchase here (I did not have any), but for the relaxation and doughnuts. Yes, you read correctly – doughnuts!  Hahaha…  You can get a closer look at our experience at the Otres Beach here.

When you are looking for Otres Beach Accommodation, you can either reside in the middle of madness or you can stay a walking distance from it in a more luxurious of the areas.

Otres Beach Hotel

Tamu Hotel is a more classy and modern Otres Beach accommodation option.  Private stretch of beach, relaxing pool and an Asian Cuisine Restaurant; yup it is all here!  This Otres beach hotel is located in a more peaceful place along this stretch of Cambodian beaches, but still close enough to all the fun parts as well.

Koh Rong Samloem Accommodation

I love Koh Rong Samloem!  Leave me on this island for two weeks straight and pick me up after.  Total bliss, pure beauty and amazing Saracen Bay Beach.  I could tell you more, or you can check out some of our awesome pics and our story about this amazing island here.

Once you are on the island all you will want to do it to lazy around on one of the hammocks and forget about the world behind you.  Imagine it to be your private oasis and it will be so.  Saracen Bay beach stretches as far as the eye can see, with plenty of choices of cuisine and so much more.  Here is our recommendation for your Koh Rong Samloem accommodation.

Best Accommodation on Koh Rong Samloem

Our choice for the best accommodation on Koh Rong Samloem is without a doubt Sol Beach Resort on the Saracen Bay beach.  We had the most relaxing stay at the Sol Beach Resort!  We loved it!  Awesome restaurant, great service, large beach frontage, hammocks everywhere.  Yup, Loved it!
