A contemporary hotel in a Cambodia town associated with one of the world’s most impressive historic marvels, the five-star Le Méridien Angkor offers a European-style retreat in a lush, tropical setting. A stay here gives you ample time to explore the obvious draw nearby: Angkor, the seat of the Khmer kingdom in the 9th and 15th centuries. Today, it’s an impressive temple complex shrouded in wonder and ancient history.
Once you’ve had your fill of Angkor’s age-old appeal, there are plenty of modern delights to draw you back to your plush hotel, which nabbed a TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award 2016 for being one of the Top 25 Hotels in Cambodia. The outdoor pool makes a great place to start – where better to take a refreshing dip to kick-start an afternoon of relaxation? If you need a little help, head to the award-winning spa for a tranquil treatment (you might be lucky enough to bag the Jacuzzi suite), or sit down to a leisurely afternoon tea in the attractive lounge.
Deluxe rooms are spacious, with dark, wood floors and fresh, white linens, creating a modern, tropical ambience. Amenities include Wi-Fi, and creature comforts extend to pillow-top mattresses. You’ll also find a seating area with a sofa and lovely views over the resort. Deluxe room guests also have access to the pleasant Lobby Lounge, with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks from 10am-10pm.
The restaurant has an excellent reputation in Siem Reap for its fine cuisine. You’ll find both traditional Khmer and French dishes by executive chef Nicolas Rouleau, who started his career at London’s iconic Harrods. Savor flavorful macaroons or gorge on fresh croissants – the bakers here know a thing or two – and a good range of vegetarian dishes are offered daily. There’s also a café, a cocktail bar, a lounge for afternoon tea and a poolside bar.
The World Travel Awards have recognized Le Méridien Angkor Spa as Cambodia’s Leading Spa Resort for four years running. You’ll find a menu of tempting traditional treatments here, which can be enjoyed across the six treatment rooms, one of which is a Jacuzzi suite. There’s also a treatment room just for couples.
Le Méridien Angkor is situated in Siem Reap, in northwest Cambodia. The area is renowned for the ruins of Angkor, which was the seat of the Khmer kingdom between the 9th and 15th centuries. The area is surrounded by the verdant rice paddies and floating villages of yesteryear, but also up-to-date attractions, like golf courses. You’ll find fine dining and vibrant bars in the town itself, alongside artisan markets.
How to Get There
Great location for conference with food facilities and attentive staff. Pool is perfect for De stress. Great food. Plenty of rooms and options for meetings. Will come back for longer holiday here as perfect for families close to all local attractions.
As a Marriott elite member I like to stay at Marriott properties world wide. My visit started a little rocky. I had arrainged via the hotel a driver from the airport to the hotel. For some still unknown reason the driver never showed up. After contaction the hotel twice, the told me to take a cab which I did. I wasted almost an hour and was not very happy. When I arrived, I met one of the managers, Ms. Arushi Arora and we had a long discussion on the problem. She took a proactive approach to fix the problem in the future and also provided me with a free dinner meal. The hotel is very comfortable, the staff was friendly and professional. The bar and restrauant are excellent and provide nice perks for elite members. Thsi hotel is an excellent choice!
As others have stated, the hotel is definitely past its prime and the rooms are in need of refurbishment. They are dated and likely haven’t been refreshed in over a decade. The grounds are pretty, though. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. And I agree with others that they don’t upgrade SPG platinums here, which is disappointing. Overall we had a nice stay, but if we returned to Siem Reap we’d probably consider something else.
The best part about our stay at the Meridien was the tour desk who connected us to two wonderful guides for two days at the temples. Both were enthusiastic, funny, knowledgeable regarding the temples, and spoke great English. While we can’t remember the name of our first guide, our second guide was through angkorenglishguide.com - we highly suggest requesting Nhem Sareoun when looking to book your temple guides!!!
Ms. Arushi Arora is an excellent manager. She helped us to chalk out our plans. She was the most helpful. The other person we remember is Zillour Rahman, the chef. He prepared some of our favourite dishes we asked for. The first day, my wife was sick after eating in the city. Zillour came and offered to help us. Please thank Arushi and Zillour for making our so successful.
The property is excellent but may need some refurbishment. Rather than staying in the Marriott; this location is much better and very spacious. The lawns are maintained immaculately.
