Under the ancient canopy of Siem Reap’s palace trees, each walled compound offers residents total privacy in their own tropical garden.Bill Bensley has designed these residences as he likes to live himself – being surrounded by lush gardens which are completely private. Custom tailored Khmer inspired bed sheets, a plethora of feather or as you like pillows, and the bedside golden bamboo towers contain all you will probably need for a great night’s sleep and the most romantic bath under the stars.

You could set up your second sky bed if you would care to sleep under the Khmer Stars.
