Baby Elephant also named second best bargain hotel in Asia, and best in Cambodia

Siem Reap’s independent Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel has been recognised as the world’s ninth best bargain hotel in TripAdvisor’s 2018 Travellers’ Choice awards, based on the millions of reviews and opinions collected each year from TripAdvisor travellers worldwide.

Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel, which operates as a social enterprise, also ranked as Asia’s #2 bargain hotel in Asia, and the best in Cambodia. Yet Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel – within striking distance of Cambodia’s renowned Angkor Wat temple complex – offers so much more than just a bargain: this stylish, LGBT-friendly, and ethically and sustainably run property has so much to make it unique.

An intimate three-star property with the exceptional service and facilities of a four-star international hotel, Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel offers a range of excellent-value accommodation to suit couples, families, solo travellers, and large groups. Facilities and amenities include an incredible restaurant and bar with a 50% vegan offering, a gorgeous saltwater pool, an in-house spa, yoga, wellness and cooking classes, and an artists-in-residence programme.

“We are extremely proud to receive this award, and thank our valued guests for their support. We are especially indebted to Baby Elephant’s exceptionally talented team of Cambodian hospitality professionals for their hard work”, said Managing Partner and Marketing Director Ilana Tulloch. “Together we are looking forward to continuing to innovate in areas of service, food, cocktails, design and more in 2018.”

Hotel owners Ilana Tulloch and Adam Scott opened Baby Elephant in 2015, moving from careers in media, hospitality and music in Australia and Indonesia. Their community commitment at Baby Elephant is an extension of their previous projects and passions.

The hotel’s sustainability efforts have seen it create full-time ethical employment for 25 disadvantaged Cambodians in the local community since launching in 2015, and countless more contract positions, benefiting many micro-businesses. The team’s other initiatives include installing street lighting in the hotel’s neighbourhood, and conducting regular ‘Go Green Baby Elephant’ street clean-up days.

Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel has consistently ranked highly in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, including being rated the third best property of its kind in Cambodia for a number of years.
