The World's Favourite Hotel Costs Just $160 a Night (Yes, Really)
We're used to seeing overwater bungalows in Bora Bora or treehouse villas in Costa Rica top the list of the best hotels in the world, but Trip Advisor's latest report reveals a hidden gem. The travel authority mined millions of reviews and rankings from the past year to spotlight the best of the best—and surprisingly, an under-the-radar hotel in Cambodia won the top spot.
Viroth's Hotel is a modern hotel based in Siem Reap, home to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat. Features include a 20-meter mosaic-tiled pool, tropical courtyard, and rooms styled with midcentury furniture and local antiques. Perhaps the best part is the price: The standard rate for a double room is $160, according to Mr & Mrs Smith. Take a look inside.
Tropical plants turn the courtyard into a lush oasis.
The mosaic tile swimming pool is definitely the hero feature.
The hotel is just minutes away from Siem Riep's top ancient attractions.
Statement blue ceramic tiles frame the garden.
Mr & Mrs Smith describes the décor style as "new Khmer on the block," drawing inspiration from Cambodia's midcentury architectural boom.
The hotel entrance is dripping with vines and native plants.
Canary yellow pillows and side tables add a burst of colour to the pool area.
The hotel has 35 rooms, including four luxury suites.
