Come and stay at Maison Polanka in Siem Reap, Cambodia
I loved the playfully lacquered elephant sculptures from the workshop of Cambodian artist Theam, and numerous other colorful décor details

Built like an artist’s studio, the Purple suite is the only suite in the property with beautiful, traditional and locally made tiles – smooth and cool to the feet. You enter the room through a corridor and a wooden staircase with photos of the silk farm taken in 1993.
The décor mixes modern design and Cambodian 1950’s precious wood furniture; the Art works are from the owners’ collection. The bathroom is wide and made out of terrazzo and a modern composition of tiles. On the terrace, two comfortable rattan long chairs face the lush bougainvillea tree and the garden for a perfect relaxing afternoon tea.
The Purple suite can be connected to the Orange suite and become a family suite for 4.
