The heart of the property is the Farm at Southall, a working farm embracing the growing, raising and preserving of ingredients. With 1,300 apple trees with 43 greenhouses, as well as an orangery, the farm welcomes guests to explore its many elements through extensive apiary, farm and Jammery tours and experiences, all focusing on immersing guests in an educational and unique environment.

Care for each ingredient featured at the farm allows for exceptional cuisine and Southall’s culinary program. Southall’s signature restaurant, Mary Amelia, plans to open in the next few weeks to serve diverse dishes showcasing the journeys of each ingredient found on the farm. Guests of Southall can also indulge in wellness treatments at the natural ingredient-driven spa. Offering a full range of ancient healing therapies and modern treatments, the spa’s eight treatment rooms and two suites for couples provide an extensive spa experience for all.

The surrounding land boasts more than 5 miles of hiking, biking and running trails through old-growth forests. Southall invites guests to engage with the environment through activities like fishing, canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding on the seven-acre Lake Mishkin. A full-service activity outfitter offers rentals for canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing gear, mountain bikes and more.

 

Live music by some of Nashville’s favorite bands will make appearances at Southall, as well as behind-the-scenes opportunities to know more about the region, with activities like plein-air painting with native artists to found-object woodworking.

Fairfield by Marriott Phnom Penh Review

Phnom Penh as we imagined it stretches beneath us: a picturesque, low-rise mix of Southeast Asian and French Colonial styles. When the inhabitants of those buildings look back at us here in the Fairfield by Marriott hotel in Chip Mong Tower, they see the future.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
