An Angkor Retreat

Sala Kdei is a beautiful traditional wooden house overlooking the royal bathing pool of Sra Srang. Once used by the ancient Khmer kings and their concubines, this is a celebrated spot for sunrise and sunset. In a serene setting amid the rural village atmosphere of Angkor, Sala Kdei offers a range of original experiences from dining, cooking classes and cocktails to
yoga and quiet meditation. Sala Kdei is the perfect private escape from the crowds around Angkor during the heat of the day. Unwind or indulge, it’s the perfect complement to the majestic temples. Sala Kdei is dedicated to bringing the best of Khmer cuisine to our guests and our menu includes a full selection of popular national dishes, including such favourites as amok,
steamed fish with coconut, chilli and lemongrass in banana leaf. We are committed to preserving authentic cooking methods, ingredients and presentation, as passed down from generation to generation. We are proud of our quality ingredients, which are exclusively fresh, organic and locally
sourced. We also include some international favourites and a breakfast choice from three continents, Asia, Europe and America. Sala Kdei is adorned with hand-carved wooden furnishings, traditional Khmer silk, as well as traditional art and handicrafts from Cambodia.

Sundowners and Canapés at Srah Srang Royal Bathing Pool: As the sun begins to set over the temples of Angkor you will be taken to the Royal Bathing Pool of Srah Srang. Dating from the tenth century, and originally lined with sandstone, it was once the exclusive bath of the Khmer Kings and their concubines. Drinks and light canapés will be provided by the nearby Sala Kdei Khmer House as the sun sets over the Angkor Park. This is the perfect way to end a day. You will then be taken back to your hotel.
