With a gleaming white exterior that rises above Siem Reap’s dusty streets, this Art Deco gem is a short tuk-tuk ride from Angkor Wat. Formerly the Hotel de la Paix, an iconic property built in 1955, the Park Hyatt Siem Reap opened in August 2013 after a major revamp by prolific interior designer Bill Bensley. The style combines an Art Deco aesthetic and contemporary comforts, with a nod to the area’s colonial past. The cocktail lounge is done up in dusty rose velvet and pitch-black lacquered wood and the world-class spa draws on local remedies.
Bed and Bath
While most historic hotels make do with diminutive guestrooms and ancient plumbing systems, the rooms here start at 366 square feet and feel even bigger thanks to huge picture windows and bright white linens and walls. The local artistic heritage shines through in the form of metal headboards sculpted in the shape of banyan trees and carved wooden furniture with colorful, eye-catching upholstery. The bathrooms are clad entirely in white marble with wooden shutters to separate them from the bedrooms, and contain his-and-hers vanities, deep soaking tubs and separate rainfall showers.
The lush Cambodian countryside and the enormous archaeological complex of Angkor Wat are on the doorstop but there are plenty of reasons to stay on property. The green-tiled free-form pool is a great place to cool off from the Southeast Asian sun and the intimate spa offers well-priced treatments that incorporate ancient local remedies and traditions like pressure-point stimulation and the Apsara Scrub (named for the heavenly dancers sculpted in Angkor’s bas reliefs) that combines lotus. The hotel’s throwback Lobby Lounge is Siem Reap’s expat watering hole of choice, while the Dining Room restaurant serves up a tantalizing panoply of flavorful Khmer dishes prepared using classic French techniques.
In the Area
Of course, the main reason to come to this part of the world is to marvel at the sprawling complex of temples at the Angkor Archaeological Park; be sure to catch sun set over Angkor Wat itself from the 9th-century Phnom Bakheng (the hotel can arrange a guide). For a taste of local culture, visit the floating villages on nearby Tonle Sap Lake. The harrowing Cambodia Land Mine Museum and School was founded by a former child soldier, and presents a devastating portrait of the Khmer Rouge and the country’s civil war. For some of the best dining in town, stop by the sophisticated Chanrey Tree on the banks of the Siem Reap River, which has a gorgeous open-air dining room in its garden. Viroth’s across the river is another choice spot, while Wat Damnak’s chef, French-born Joannes Riviere, serves up a new prix-fixe menu weekly. A nightcap at kitschy-cool Miss Wong is a must.
How to Get There
我不會說他是最奢華的吳哥窟飯店，但卻服務良好，細節不錯，前身是翻修的酒店房間只有100多間，如果遇到旺季或大型展會他常常會客滿，建議提前預約，飯店的 SPA 很不錯細節滿滿，但是選項不多。
餐飲部分早餐 28 美金++ 每位，晚餐我推薦選用有跳舞的晚上，好像是週一周三週五週日，可以在 Dining Room 享用套餐，其他時間 Living room 的 Happy Hour 很不錯通通對折。餐飲素質良好。只是早餐蒼蠅很多…
This is an altogether superb hotel. It is located at a major intersection in the centre of the town. Looks impressively grand from the outside but its pretty cool inside too. Loved the glasshouse and also the rather strange pool. Rooms are very luxurious.
Excellent 5* Hotel as one would expect. Good location if you like getting out to the vibrant pub street and night markets which are just a short walk away. The hotel itself is all that is advertised and more. Good rooms and clean and comfortable. Staff are amazing and very courteous and polite. The breakfast is great and eggs to order menu is just a great idea rather than queues at the egg station in most other hotels.
We would like to thank especially Risun,Lakeng & Rottana who every morning made our breakfast an experience, always obliging.
The pool area is just ideal with part of the pool covered so even if it rains one can still use the pool. Great use after a long day out visiting the many sites at Angkor.
Thank you to all the staff at the Hyatt.
