Legendary Khmer hospitality meets its match at Relais & Chateaux’s only Cambodian property, a 26-room colonial-styled complex and spa across the river from the Royal Residence and Angkor National Museum. Suites offer Asian Art Deco decor, steam rooms, oversized tubs and small private gardens with outdoor showers — some even have Jacuzzis. A large salt-water pool draws guests for afternoon dips, happy hour cocktails and romantic candlelit meals in a private gazebo. And the spa is the perfect place to unwind after a long day at Angkor Wat with organic products and treatments inspired by traditional Khmer massage techniques.
In the Area
Angkor Wat: majestic, mysterious and manic. Crowds anthill around the UNESCO World Heritage site’s millennium-old Hindu/Buddhist ruins. To capture more of that just-discovered Tomb Raider feel, arrive early—before sunrise if you’re a photographer—and consider sites farther afield, like Kbal Spean’s ”River of a Thousand Lingas” the delicate pink-sandstone carvings at Banteay Srei and the 12th century lost temple of Beng Mealea. Angkor Thom’s multi-faced Bayon, root-choked Ta Prohm and awesome Angkor Wat itself are just the inner circle of a 400-square-km complex that’s at the heart of a recently discovered, even larger Khmer empire. For a taste of authentic Cambodian food, stop into the no-frills Khmer Kitchen, a favorite of everyone from the New York Times to Mick Jagger.
How to Get There
A lovely hotel with a gorgeous spacious room including a seating area, indoor steam room and stone bath plus separate shower. There was a private outdoor patio complete with outdoor shower to cool off! Do not leave the hotel without trying the restaurant food - delicious. The staff were really friendly and offered a late afternoon departure from our room.
Every time we returned to Heritage Suites, the person at the reception desk stood, and greeted us with “welcome to your home...” This was indeed a home from home in the jungle of Siem Reap. If only our home was as amazing as this! Our bungalow room had a private outdoor courtyard with shower, a wet room area inside with a bath, shower, and steam room, and a living area. The breakfast was a la carte and delicious. It is well located, about 20 min walk from the old town, or $3 on a tuktuk. The swimming pool was a blessed relief from the 38 degree heat at the end of a day sightseeing. The staff were so helpful, and arranged a trip to see the sun set over Angkor Wat for us.
We arrived on the 14th March for a three days at this lovely hotel we were spoilt right from the beginning with their hospitality & sheer enthusiasm in making are stay so good. The bungalow we stayed in was perfect, it had it’s own swimming pool & patio and the size of the room was excellent we could not have wished for a more luxurious room.
The hotel is situated perfectly for a superb restaurant just 100 meters down the road a training restaurant for future chefs a must to eat at. As for shopping a tuk tuk only takes 5 minutes to the town centre with more restaurants & markets and the reception can book everything for you.
Breakfast was excellent plenty to choose on the menu and quality of food & drink was ideal.
The spa was superb and they let us stay in our room until 6pm before we had to leave for the airport so good of them.
We have travelled extensively over the past 45 years and this hotel is certainly one we would have no hesitation in returning to.
We thoroughly enjoyed Heritage Suites. The whole setting was peaceful and beautiful and the staff were so warm and helpful. We were given an upgrade to a bungalow which was amazing. We had our own small private swimming pool off our terrace! And actually we used our pool quite a lot as it was a perfect way to cool off after returning from tours to the temples. They do also have a really nice hotel pool as well. The beer, soft drinks and water in the mini bar were all complimentary and replenished daily. Internet in the bungalow was very good. Bed very comfortable. Good shower. We were each given a coupon for a complimentary massage at the spa. I extended the massage to an hour and was only charged $22.50 for adding a half hour. And it was a great massage. Our breakfast was included and is not a buffet - it is cooked to order and it was delicious, you can have as much as you want. Service was prompt. We had complimentary cocktails and canapés at the restaurant and they were very good. I was given a coupon for a small gift from their gift shop. We walked to a nearby restaurant but otherwise generally took a tuk-tuk when we wanted to go out. The location seemed fine. - I liked that it seemed removed from the city somehow even though it really isn't. There is a pagoda/school next door and sometimes there was noise from that but it never seemed like a problem. Heritage Suites was really special!
A nice boutique hotel and the staff are very friendly. They tried hard to meet with our requests. We ate out a lot and we gave the hotel very little time to prepare the bookings. The room is spacious. Our room does not have a private swimming pool but the public one looks nice. Food at the restaurant is delicious and the breakfast has many choices. The location of the hotel is right in the city. However, we will suggest to bring a hotel business card with you. Not all Tuk Tuk driver knows the location. My wife and I enjoyed the trip a lot with their excursion package. We recommend the private tour. I will go to this hotel again if I ever return to Siem Reap.
