“Chic, tranquil, green and luxurious oasis. Friendly, helpful and yet unobtrusive service. Viroth’s is not just a great place to see the stunning temples, but a destination in its own right,” TripAdvisor says. With 95 per cent of their 994 reviews being five-star, it’s no wonder Viroth took the top spot.
Viroth’s Hotel is a joint venture between local and foreign investors and has been in operation since 2015.
Hotel manager Saay Sokross said he got the call from TripAdvisor in the US that his hotel topped the list for the 2018 Best Hotel of the World.
“It is unbelievable for this recognition because we didn’t apply for anything. First, we thought someone just call to cheat us but once we saw it on CNN, we were very surprised,” he said.
Most surprising maybe is that rates at Viroth’s Hotel start at €77/night.
