Channa's Angkor Homestay
Ranked #117 of 507 Siem Reap B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We stayed in the superior room for three nights after being recommended by a fellow traveller who stayed there before. We feel lucky to have found this hidden gem and would gladly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel closer to Cambodia, the culture and the nature. This is one of the best accommodations I've ever stayed at.

The communications beforehand were clear and informative, and Channa provided us with delicious, nutritious, home made food every day. The bed is comfy, bathroom clean and the children are absolutely lovely.

Renting a bicycle and cycling through Angkor was magnificent, a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life.

We discovered Channa's Angkor Homestay by lucky chance when searching online for accommodation close to Angkor Wat. Despite the short notice of our arrival, Thomas and Channa were generous, hospitable and incredibly kind. They arranged bikes for us to use, adjusted their menu's to cope our 2 month trip. Playing with Anita and Amanda, Thomas and Channa's young girls, was an absolute pleasure - they are amazing, dynamic and truly multi-cultural children. We cycled every day to explore the various temples of Angkor Wat Archaeological Park and it was a joy to be independent, free to visit the ruins off the beaten track and avoid the crowds. Coming home to Channa's incredible food every evening was the icing on the cake.
Channa's Angkor Homestay is a house that Thomas designed himself and it is beautiful and comfortable, a wonderful mix of traditional and modern. We stayed in a small bungalow/hut in the garden as we were on a tight budget but there is also a beautiful room in the house. Everything was prepared with love, and kept beautifully clean. The lotus flowers were in full bloom in the garden and the stars were so bright overhead, being away from any light pollution. The tranquility of the environment added to the peace and relaxation. The ability to awaken just before sunrise and cycle out to the ruins in the cool of the early morning added to the experience!
I am so grateful that we found this hidden gem in the heart of the Angkor Archeological Park and I recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the magic of Angkor without the busy-ness of the tourist scene in Siem Reap!

In 2011 I worked as a volunteer for 5 weeks at an orphanage in Siem Reap. I was fortunate to be offered a homestay with Channa and Thomas and their two lovely little girls in their newly built home, located in a beautiful green area between Siem Reap and Angkor Wat. It took me no more than 5-10 minutes by bicycle to reach the center of Siem Reap.

Back at the incredibly beautiful house – which is built according to Cambodian tradition but with modern facilities – Channa and her Danish husband Thomas took good care of me. Channa served splendid authentic Cambodian food and Thomas shared his extensive knowledge of the Cambodian country, people and conditions. I felt very welcomed and at home with the whole family. Homestay with Channa and Thomas means experiencing firsthand modern and traditional Cambodian way of life in a warm and friendly family environment. Believe me – this is what real HOMEstay is all about! I highly recommend it and I hope to visit again as soon as I can.

We spent four nights in Siem Reap in the home of Channa who is Cambodian, her Danish husband Thomas and their two lovely little girls. Their warm welcome and services were friendly and nice. They are efficient and very helpful. The hospitality was great, you are treated like a friend with warm greetings and a smile.
Their house of recent construction is located in an archeological park a few kilometers from the city center. The room was spacious with a comfortable large bed and mosquito net. Modern bathroom with shower, spotless room, towels and laundry services are provided. Delicious breakfast is included and for a small supplement we chose to have our evening meals prepared by Channa, to better share their way of life. Delicious Cambodian meals prepared by Channa who is an excellent cook.
We experienced friendly atmosphere and the spontaneity of the children made it feel like home. The proximity of the Angkorian sites, the tranquility of the location makes it a definite plus if you want to stay away from the busy city but still close to the major sites and activities.
We highly recommend this guesthouse, the Cambodian/European mix gives it an interesting aspect.


Nous venons ici témoigner d’un très bon séjour en famille d’accueil, au centre du Cambodge. À Siem Reap Channa et ses deux filles, cambodgiennes, et Thomas européen de naissance, nous ont partagé leur grande maison ainsi que leurs habitudes de vie. Leur maison de construction récente, nous réserve une chambre d’hôte spacieuse, lit très confortable, salle de bain moderne attenante. Tout est très propre car Channa y veille toujours. En plus du petit déjeuner, nous avons choisi d’y prendre nous repas du soir, afin de mieux partager la façon de vivre du pays. Délicieux repas de spécialités khmères, ambiance chaleureuse, spontanéité des enfants, proximités des sites angkoriens, sont là pour agrémenter notre séjour.
