May 14, 2014 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

A short Tuk Tuk ride from the architectural masterpiece of Angkor Wat, the Bong Thom Homestay is offering a “stay for five nights and pay for three” promotion for June 2014. 

Costs for five nights accommodation for two in the Khmer wooden house per room begin at 350$AUD inclusive of daily breakfast set menu and round trip transfer from Siem Reap airport or bus station.

The homestay, located in the heart of the popular Angkor Archaeological Park is a unique community-based tourism experience that captures the essence of village life in the heartland of Cambodia.  Located in the San Day Village, Banteay Srey District, on the way to Bantey Srey temple about 26Km from Siem Reap, The Bong Thom Homestay is ideally situated for travellers looking for the ‘real’ Cambodia inside the cradle of Angkor.

The Bong Thom Homestay provides easy access to Siem Reap, home of world-heritage listed temples and monuments:  18km from Angkor Wat, 10km from Prasat Pre Rup, 9km from Prasat Banteay Sam Rea, 19km to the Kbal Spean waterfall and 25km from the Phnom Kulen waterfall.

Guests are able to totally relax while immersing themselves in the timeless culture of Cambodia. All Bong Thom Homestay rooms are designed with comfort in mind, all built of teak and local timbers and standing on stilts.

A full range of popular amenities and a friendly, caring staff create highpoints of a stay amid mango and dragon fruit orchards, fishing (in the purpose-built fish farms) rice harvesting, lazy ox cart rides or simply taking it easy amid the serenity of rural Cambodia.  The Bong Thom Homestay offers something for everyone. In addition to a relaxing stay, your hosts can assist with functions, cooking classes, team building, camping, weddings, and very worthwhile student programs.

Delicious local catering and lunches are a highlight of the Bong Thom Homstay with more than 9500 catering and lunch guests hosted last year usually as they return from viewing Angkor Wat and surrounding temples.

A seven-course lunch using local produce ranges from USD$12 to $20.  Also available are sunrise breakfasts, cocktail sunsets and special events that take advantage of the 3.6 hectare site opposite the Butterfly Gardens.

The Bong Thom Homestay was founded by Mr Sou Say (Thom) in response to growing demand from European and other tour operators for a quality local Cambodia experience that includes genuine Khmer foods of the district.

The first phase of the homestay opened to international guests in 2009. As a community-based project with neighboring Phum Sanday, the Bong Thom Homestay aims to diversify livelihoods and improve living standards. It employs 20 local villagers on a full-time basis and can call on extra staff to service larger groups.  The Bong Thom Homestay also sponsors on site a small English language school for local children aged from six years and upwards.

The objective is to liaise with local communities and use their own resources, and to provide opportunities for visitors to experience the culture, local nature and true Khmer lifestyle.
