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
My other half and I travel for leisure and work frequently, and Anantara Angkor Resort easily trumps all the other places we have been to. Our trip coincided with our anniversary, and despite a last minute email to Anantara, they executed the surprise perfectly - from the room upgrade, to the balloons, to the heart-shaped cake, to the chilled wine, to a beautiful bouquet of lotus, to even a framed photo of us. From the get go, it was obvious that Anantara would always go above and beyond in bringing joy to their guests.
From the second we landed at the airport, right till the day we left, everyone at Anantara exuded warmth and had a ready smile on their faces. The amazing staff made Anantara feel like home with every thoughtful gesture, ranging from arranging our tuk tuk rides, to packing snacks and a poncho during our quad ride, or recommending places in town that we simply adore, or remembering that we love having a mimosa and a piping hot cup of tea at breakfast.
The place is tastefully decorated, with something for everyone - whether you enjoy lounging by the pool, or going on adventures in beautiful Cambodia, or learning how to cook the scrumptious Khmer cuisine, or simply pampering yourself at the spa, Anantara has it all. The staff are always happy to help with any arrangements, while patiently answering your questions about anything and everything. We learned a lot about the culture and history (and even football) from the staff during our stay at Anantara.
We have nothing but good things to say about Anantara, and words would not suffice to capture the happiness that Anantara brought us. Special thanks to Ezhu, Nuy, Fung, Chi, Mab, Hout, Thean (and the list goes on) for making our trip such a memorable one. We look forward to being back and highly recommend this gem of a place to everyone.
I’ve stayed at some of the best resorts globally but none can compare to my recent experience at Anantara Angkor Resort! I stayed at the resort with 15 friends and it truly was one of the most quintessential experiences I've had. From pre-arrival to my departure the team at this hotel exhibited the highest level of customer service, they anticipated our needs and we truly felt like we were at home. Each member of staff knew us by name, the suites were well appointed, the spa and the restaurant were exceptional but the people made our experience memorable. It’s so easy to find stunning hotels globally but the attention to detail, genuine warmth, and the overall joy that the team at this hotel brought to our hearts definitely made the greatest difference. It is evident that the GM of this hotel embodies the true characteristics of an exemplary leader because her team embodies the true spirit of hospitality and it was clear that they were empowered to be ambassadors of the property through the service they delivered and the initiative that they showed. There is so much that I can say about my experience at this hotel but I will end by saying if you’re looking for a luxurious experience from a team of individuals who genuinely cares about creating memorable experiences for their guests then look no further. The amenities, the cuisine and the incredible people have left a lasting impression and have made this property my top choice for annual visits to Siem Reap.
I stayed at anantara Ankor in Siem Reap in Cambodia for 5 days with a group of friends. This hotel exceeded my expectations for quality of service and accommodation comfort. We were treated like royalty. The staff was amazing and impeccably gracious in ensuring our stay was the utmost best. I highly recommend anyone stay at this hotel. You will not regret your decision.
