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
It's a very pleasant stay at the hotel, the staffs are very friendly and attentive to us. I'll definitely go back to stay if I'm going back to Siem Reap. The facilities are well kept, there's something wrong with the jacuzzi in the jacuzzi suite and they made a free upgrade for us to a pool suite instead.
It’s my No.1 choice here in Cambodia compared to other international brand hotels. I’m a big fan of small luxury hotels and if you wanna experience a different journey close to nature it won’t let you down.
Swimming pool and Bodia spa massage are very therapeutic. You can get a small handmade souvenir as a complementary gift and a very thoughtful private assistant will help you with anything. (Mine is Sopheak)
It’s not far away from either the old market (pub street area) or Angkor Wat. In addition, the hotel can pick you up from the airport with a vintage Mercedes Benz!
I would most heartily recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Siem Riep.
Firstly, the hotel is beautiful. The room is very pleasant, with a comfortable bed and working facilities. There is much greenery here, with a swimming pool, antique motorbikes and pictures adorning the hotel. Additionally, it has a cozy restaurant with a delicious menu.
Secondly, the service offered in the hotel is above par. We were picked up in the hotel by a vintage Mercedes car, with a very kind driver offering us cold towels and cold water. Furthermore, the staff is always standby offering to help us with our every need, and always politely enquiring as to our stay. We remain in contact with reception via text messages after exchanging numbers, and this opens up our trip greatly as we can ask for them to make us bookings and get a tuktuk driver to wait for us which ensures our stay is smooth.
Also, convenience wise, there is an office in the hotel that can help us plan our stay, which was instrumental in ensuring that we experienced Cambodia to the fullest.
Overall, my mum and I had a very pleasant stay with Heritage Suites Hotel, and would certainly come back to the hotel should we visit again. I do not wish to exaggerate, but few hotels offer this homely feeling.
