BE Happy by Baby Elephant

Our Mission & Ethos

Baby Elephant’s West Wing is becoming its own unique brand of affordable accommodation. Using the initials of Baby Elephant (B.E.) we have expanded into a fun and happy brand, to appeal to affordable travellers of all ages. We want to focus on the idea of “SABAI”, an important Khmer word, which means “HAPPY”. It is one of the first words that travellers learn when they land in Cambodia, and important not only in Buddhist philosophy, but also in everyday Cambodian life. How are you for example is phrased “Sok sabai?” which means literally “are you happy?” We also want you to be happy when you travel. We will offer a new nourishing food and drinks menu, excellent music, colourful and fun decor to get your serotonin jumping while you holiday. It will be chill – this isn’t a party zone but a place to relax, nourish yourself, and slow down and smile. It’s about slow travel, you can stay longer, with excellent high speed wi-fi so you can work easily.
  • Link the pleasures of travel, food and relaxation with a commitment to protect the community, culture and environment in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
  • Empower Cambodian people through positive messages about their culture.
