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
We had a stay of 6 nights at Anantara Angkor and we got an upgraded suite which was such a pleasant surprise.
The sothea suite was spacious with an inbuilt SPA room with a Jacuzzi and two mattresses to have your in-room spa sessions.
The service was excellent and the staff was really helpful.
The food at Chi was a bit overpriced but tastes amazing.
The restaurant staff was really friendly and attentive. We also had an offer of nightly happy hour with a free-flowing cocktails/drinks. The margaritas are amazing there.
We also had two set menu 3-course dinners, but the food was above average.
If you visit Sieam Reap, then make sure you try the local cuisine in and around pub street, the food there is amazing and much more affordable.
The SPA is above average I would say, the staff is very attentive and helpful but the services provided are very overpriced. But the SPA is very hygienic which lacks in the local SPAs. I would recommend the anantara signature massage.
The only disappointment was the tours organised, the hotel organised tours are really expensive and the jeep tour which we organised was not worth US$360 in my opinion.
We have stayed at a lot of 5 star hotels around the world but the Anantara Angkor was exceptional in every aspect! From the moment you walk through their gate, they'll take care of you, make you feel at home and anticipate your needs. Every member of staff was polite and caring. David, the concierge, surprised us more than once. All the receptionists, waiters and drivers were so incredibly kind. Such an amazing service topped up by the many additional little touches in place to make your stay extraordinary. Free tuktuk anytime, free mini bar, complimentary transfers from the airport, made to order delicious breakfast and snacks. The food by the pool was good and the treatments in the spa heavenly. We will be back soon! Thank you so much for your fantastic hospitality. You made us love Cambodia even more ????.
We are just back from this beautiful resort and cannot praise the staff highly enough. No issue is too big for them and they are there with their magic wand to fix it right away. Lyfung Som’s hospitality was exceptional in every way. Cathy at the restaurant made us a masala tea on special request and it was the highlight of our stay and we couldn’t have enough of it. From the tuk-tul driver to the cleaners to the front desk staff, everyone was always courteous and smiling. Cannot recommend the resort highly enough.
