Sala Bai is a non profit hotel and restaurant vocational training centre offering accommodation with air-conditioning. It is managed by the French NGO Agir Pour Le Cambodge.
Since 2002, Sala Bai Hotel School has trained more than 700 students offering the chance for young disadvantaged Cambodians the opportunity to learn key hospitality skills. This chance enables them to secure a future for themselves and their families.
The students' vocational training is provided for free and you, their guests, get to experience the training at first hand. It is not just a room or meal - it's a meal with a purpose, a room that brings opportunity and the smile of life changing education.
Sala Bai aims to promote sustainable tourism in Cambodia and aid to the reduction of poverty.
The suite at Sala Bai has been described as 'the best value for money you will find in the whole of Asia', but it's only one and it tends to be booked early so make sure to book well in advance...
Please note that Sala Bai will operate with limited services during exam periods (from mid July to mid October) and public holidays. Visits to the school are, however, still available upon request.
The Sala Bai Hotel School restaurant serves tantalizing menus with Asian and Western dishes. Three course Asian or Western lunch set menus from US$ 8 and à la Carte options available. French wines and a variety of refreshments are available.
The restaurant is open every day from Monday to Friday (except public holidays) during school term for breakfast and lunch. Dinner reservations are on request only.
