Phum Baitang

Aug 20, 2017

If it’s good enough for the Tomb Raider, then it’s good enough for pretty much anybody. Angelina Jolie is just one of a host of A-listers who’ve stayed at this boutique. With 45 stilted wooden villas, half of which have private plunge pools, it’s an intimate space away from prying paparazzi eyes. The vibe mimics a plush French country chateau. After touring the actual temples, be sure to pay a visit to the Spa Temple, with indigenous tonics and therapies, for a little R&R.
