Zannier Hotels' first property in Asia opens with 45 private villas

Phum Baitang hasn't even reached its one-year milestone, but it has already played host to A-list stars such as Angelina Jolie. After all, with only 45 private villas set against a lush, verdant backdrop, privacy comes easy, as is the complete immersion into Cambodia's popular tourist destination, Siem Reap. Modeled after traditional Cambodian houses, each private abode charms with a sense of understated luxury, 20 of which beckon with their own plunge pools.

Guests hankering for a taste of Khmer cuisine don't have to go far either. Bay Phsar, one of two restaurants set within the property, makes full use of the hotel's organic herb and vegetable gardens to showcase the flavours of Cambodia. Sundowners can be had at a handsome cigar and cocktail lounge backdropped with a view of paddy fields. 

Over at Spa Temple, the hotel's very own on-site spa, massages inspired by spa traditions the world over offer guests multiple ways to unwind and recharge.
