TeaHouse: Asian Urban Hotel, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Why do we like it?

Inspected by our Deputy Manager, we like this hotel so much because of its source of inspiration: the world of tea. Warm reddish colors and plenty of green add to the warm atmosphere. The hotel has 52 rooms, making it an intimate experience. We also like the Tea Lounge with a selection of more than 30 kinds of tea, plus the assorted delicious cakes and ice-creams.

Where can we find this hotel?

The TeaHouse is located right in the middle of Phnom Penh city, within walking distance of the capital’s historical center, Royal Palace, National Museum and riverside promenade.

Why do we think it’s special?

Khiri Travel Cambodia is really fond of supporting this hotel because of the way it contributes to Cambodian society. There are several projects that the hotel supports in order to preserve urban heritage, urban green spaces and local culture. We also like its solar water heating system, designed to save energy.

 

Nam-Hien-Homestay

Nam Hien Homestay, Mekong Delta, Vietnam

Where can we find this hotel?

The Nam Hien Homestay is right in the center of the Mekong Delta in Cho Lach, about 35 kms from Ben Tre.

What’s it like?

The hotel, or homestay, is housed in a traditional building typical for the southern part of Vietnam. An orchard with grapefruits and longan surrounds the house that is decorated with wood carvings, antique furniture and an ancestral altar. In total there are nine rooms that sleep up to 15 people.

What can we do in the surrounding area?

Guests staying at the homestay can enjoy an immersion in daily life of Vietnamese people from the Mekong Delta. Activities include fishing, farming in the rice fields or orchards, cooking with Mr. Nam’s family, and a visit to Cho Lach market. Visitors are also invited to join lunch in the traditional house.
