Set amid lotus ponds and fountains in a parklike tropical garden, this restful retreat is halfway between Angkor Wat and Siem Reap. Inspired by traditional Cambodian architecture and French colonial style, the main buildings are huge open-sided wooden structures filled with antiques and artifacts from the owners’ personal collection. There’s a real sense of place and connection to the local culture throughout the property, and the attentive and smiling staff make this a delightful base from which to explore the famous ruins and surrounding countryside.
Bed and Bath
The 80 spacious guestrooms are light and bright, with high ceilings, wood floors and four-poster beds. Rich orange silk curtains and colorful throw cushions add a luxe touch to the decor, and each room has a desk and a sitting area with comfy rattan armchairs. Rooms on the upper floor feature small terraces, while those on the ground floor open directly onto the gardens. The large bathrooms are decorated with celadon green tiles and feature oversize bathtubs, twin sinks and organic amenities.
The resort has two signature restaurants: Aarama, for authentic Asian cuisine, and Le Jardin, for classic French fare. The Spa Village has four private treatment rooms, with outdoor Jacuzzis and a range of Asian-themed massages and wellness therapies that use local herbs and oils to soothe aches and pains. The magnificent gardens are a highlight of the resort, and they wrap around a sinuous 820-foot pool that has private “beaches” hidden in the bends, complete with four-poster sun loungers.
In the Area
The awe-inspiring ruins of Angkor Wat Archaeological Park are the reason most people visit Siem Reap, but there are plenty of other sights that are well worth seeing. Explore the floating villages on Tonle Sap Lake or cycle through the surrounding countryside to experience genuine local color. In Siem Reap there are loads of restaurants, bars and coffee shops around Pub Street. The Angkor National Museum has an impressive acollection of treasures and provides a good overview of ancient Khmer culture. The Artisans de Angkor keep traditional arts and crafts, such as silk weaving, stone sculpting and wood carving, alive by training local artisans.
How to Get There
We are on tour from the UK and have spent 3 amazing nights at this truly wonderful Hotel . From the minute you walk in the door you are greeted so graciously, cool towel / drink exactly what you want after a very long flight . Our room was beautiful, lovely furnished with many little touches , the bathroom large and spacious with everything in the right place , especially the hairdryer with a large mirror in very close proximity not stretching the cord to stand in front (for me with long hair this ticks all the boxes) we had double sinks which again is great and a refreshing ceiling shower.... perfect . The food is delicious and if their is something your not sure about they will either take it out or recommend something else, the bar is very relaxing with happy hour every day . The grounds and interior are very tranquil, we have enjoyed are stay we don’t want to move on . Thank you to all the staff who work so hard to make make guests feel at home and welcome
We stayed in a suite with private pool, which was a unique experience
Beautiful architecture and original decor, good restaurant, good spa, very helpful staff
The lady at the tour desk was extremely attentive to our needs, the lady who did my nails at the spa very professional, reactive and flexible
I can only recommend this place, especially for couples
The only down side I found was the noise of the AC unit in the room
This is a great property, the rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed, and the pool and the grounds are outstanding. This greatly exceeded my expectations. The pool is amazing, wrapping around all the units. The breakfast was great, staff too.
