The rice paddies at Sala Lodges have just been planted again!
Some friends have just visited Siem Reap and stayed in the resort and took some photos while there.
The Resort just turned 1 year old and we must have had at least 3 rice harvests so far. All the rice (as well as the vegetables, herbs and spices) from the gardens is used in the fantastic dishes prepared for guests.Read More
