A 10-minute drive from Angkor’s superlative archaeological park, Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa pairs colonial elegance with style and romance. Surrounded by manicured lawns studded with fountains, the 39 suites combine Khmer design and contemporary comfort and are clustered around a gold-flecked saltwater pool modeled on Srah Srang, a bathing pool built for Angkor’s kings.
Bed and Bath
The suites feature classic Cambodian decor (dark wood wall panels, antique replica statuettes and Recamier sofas), and personal touches are everywhere, from clawfoot tubs filled with fragrant Khmer herbs, to the copies of Cambodia’s famous love story, Tum Teav, on the bedside tables. Deluxe Rooms feature wall-to-wall windows, pool-view balconies and spacious bathrooms, and the Premium Deluxe Rooms have indoor and outdoor showers. Families will love the 1,022-square-foot Anantara Suites, with their canopy beds and separate lounges, and honeymooners can be totally self-sufficient in the opulent Sothea Suites, which have private gardens, Jacuzzi tubs and his-and-hers massage beds.
For evening dining head to Chi Restaurant & Bar and tuck into Khmer specialities while you’re entertained by traditional Apsara performers. Don’t miss the evening Sabai happy hour, when you’ll be treated to a free selection of Cambodian finger food. Best of all, personal butlers are on hand to organize sundowner cocktails on the balcony, cooking lessons, or an alfresco picnic just opposite Angkor Wat.
How to Get There
Wow what a fantastic adventure we had in Siem Reap, we were treated as Royals at this amazing resort. The office staff was wonderful to have organised us a spectaculat tour to see one of the ancient civilisations from Sun Rise to Dawn with a seasta time in the afternoon. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a brilliant photographer. We thank the hotel staff for paying attention to detalis and providing us with an unfoggetable vacation in a historical city.
Stayed for 4 nights. Excellent luxury resort
What stands out most is the quality of staff. Each and every one of them. Very courteous n caring. More so than even For Season's. Think a list of guests with photos is passed around everyday. So, they make it a point to know you by face, greet you by name, ask about your day, enquire if they assist you with evening plans
I know last of it is the simple Cambodian culture. Most people are happy n contempt, coming from nearby villages to work, and have minimal needs n desires
Only thing I would say is mosquito control (if possible) - sitting even indoors at the restaurant bar with a glass of wine, I was bitten thoroughly
Also, if there was better lighting over the sink to help with shaving
The whole staff was amazing and Van set us up with everything we asked for and more. The pool and spa were super relaxing and the rooms were cozy with great amenities and small gifts. Our temple guide was the best as well! Transportation was very on point.
Last week had the pleasure of visiting one of the most incredible ancient wonders, the city and ruins of Angkor Wat.
I was fortunate to stay at the Anantara Angkor Resort. What a delight! I was pleasantly upgraded to the beautiful and tranquil Jim Thompson suite.
But the absolute highlight of the trip was the Hot Compress 90 minute massage at the hotel spa. I am a seasoned massage snob, and this was without a doubt, the BEST! Highly recommended!
Echoing Brad_Herbert's review we too went on a Luxury Escape.The entire staff were very helpful and attentive, given my wife was disabled and in a wheelchair. The Resort is not disability friendly with stairs to negotiate everywhere, so help from staff was appreciated. The driver and car that the resort organised to Angor Wat for the day were brilliant, too. In particular, Srey Rath, who served us in the dining room, was outstanding. Always greeting us with a beautiful smile and nothing was too much trouble. She even made my wife a lotus flower arrangement for Valentine's day.
