The One Hotel Angkor- Must Visit Boutique Hotel o3

The One Hotel Angko facade 1I came upon this hotel after i went for my Cambodia-Siem Reap trip 2 years ago. Frustated from not being able to check on this fabulous place (though i know i can't afford it.'>), i have to be content with just adding it into my MUST VISIT LIST...

The One Hotel, like its name has only ONE room.

Its minimalism approach may be the "dumbest business plan"(-quoted business owner Martin Dishman) for hospitality but people love the concept of enjoying the best for service, luxury and oriental sensuality, i.e. watching CNN from a 32" flat screen tv on your king-size bed + a mobile phone, a laptop & a loaded ipod while owning the roof of the French colonial building all by yourself. U can either indulge yourself in the jacuzzi or enjoy a bamboo-shaded outdoor shower or relax on the Queen-size daybed on this lovely secluded terrace.
Martin Dishman came to Siem Reap in 2oo4 to run Shinta Mani, a small, upscale hotel that also serves as a vocational school. At the end of 2oo4, he open Linga, Cambodia's first gay-friendly bar followed by ONE in April 2oo6 (& Hotel BE later). "ONE just gives Siem Reap another cool dimension,"says Nicholas Downing, Hotel de la Paix's general manager.-Forbes Asia, June 2oo8.
