We are super excited to introduce a new feature to Wandering Wives; The Lust List. Our new Lust List will showcase a selection of our favourite hotels, restaurants and bars. We will update the Lust List regularly to include a variety of establishments ranging from boutique hotels and fancy pants restaurants to quirky cafes and contemporary bars. The first place to be inducted into the Lust List hall of fame is the exquisite Pippeli Pensione hotel in Siem Reap Cambodia.
In Siem Reap the hustle and bustle of the temples and the noise of Pub Street can be an onslaught to the senses. Pippeli Pensione offers a charming escape from all of the madness in a luxurious setting. With just nine rooms centred around a spacious swimming pool, the hotel is an oasis for weary travellers.
Upon arrival at Pippeli you can expect a refreshing welcome drink by the pool before being escorted to your room. The hotel has three standards of accommodation which all come with comfy beds, luxurious linen, tea and coffee facilities, flat screen TV’s, monsoon showers and fancy toiletries. Our favourite rooms are the top level spa terraces which come with outdoor seating and a huge bathtub on your own private terrace (Don’t worry there are blinds).
After a night of opulence you can enjoy breakfast beside the pool, in your room, or on your private terrace. You simply place your order the night before and the staff will deliver it at the required time. During the day the poolside kiosk serves a range of snacks and impeccable cocktails. A day spent lounging by the pool sipping daiquiris is a fantastic tonic following a temple tour.
One of the most enjoyable parts of a stay at Pippeli is the attitude of the staff. They are friendly without being too full on and are happy to organise anything you need during your stay. The hotel is ideally situated in Siem Reap, just a short walk form the main areas of interest.
Prices start from US$79 per night but you can get some great deals through our partners at booking.com. To book Pippeli Pensione or explore other fabulous hotel deals use our nifty yellow search box.
