In her Siem Reap city guide: How to spend a sustainable weekend in north west Cambodia piece, Jessica Allen describes our ‘lovely saltwater pool’ and praises Baby Elephant’s ‘ethical approach to hospitality’ and commitment to ‘supporting its staff – employees receive a fair wage, free meals, and access to savings plans’.
The article continues: ‘As part of its ongoing Go Green! initiative, the hotel has planted an organic kitchen garden and sponsors “clean up your neighbourhood” days.”
As to why Siem Reap is a destination you need to visit right now:
‘Beneath the dusty streets of Siem Reap, green things are growing. Several social enterprises have recently sprung up, offering travellers who care about giving back lots of ways to do so. It’s never been so easy to eat a delicious meal while supporting disadvantaged young people, or to participate in the #refillnotlandfill movement by grabbing a reusable water bottle from your hotel’s lobby. At long last this city is stepping out from the shadow of the temples of Angkor and into its own light, as a destination for sustainable tourism.’
“When I arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia I initially had a few struggles with finding accommodations that were reasonably priced, while offering me the high-speed internet that I needed to get my work done.
After fumbling around a few places that couldn’t live up to my desires, I found myself at Elephant Baby Boutique Hotel.”
