Sprawling six-acre resort near Angkor Wat, with an enormous palm tree–lined pool and five restaurants
This sprawling resort artfully pairs French colonial charm with Khmer elegance in its red-tile rooftops, white arches, gently whirring ceiling fans, parlor palms and cool tile floors. Its beautifully manicured gardens, lovely ornamental lagoon and superb swimming pool create a tranquil haven from the hustle and bustle of downtown Siem Reap. It's the closest luxe resort to the archaeological wonderland of Angkor Wat, and it draws families, tour groups and business travelers who want to mix their temple hopping with upscale resort amenities.
Bed and Bath
The 238 elegant guestrooms and suites all have polished wood floors, dark wood furniture and ceiling fans above enormous beds, with splashes of color provided by Cambodian fine silk throws and cushion covers. And they all come with stunning views of the lush garden, the lagoon or the swimming pool. The black and white bathrooms are equipped with tubs as well as showers and are stocked with L’Occitane lotions and potions.
The breakfast buffet will set you up for sightseeing, with cereal, yogurt, exotic fruit, bread and conserves, as well as eggs made to order. The hotel’s five restaurants and bars offer something to suit every palate, from the Western and Asian buffet at the Citadel to the French-Khmer fusion fare at romantic Mouhot's Dream. The perfect end to a long, hot day exploring dusty temples is a dip in the enormous free-form pool and a cocktail at the swim-up Serpent Bar. Or head to the So Spa for Khmer a massage, an herbal body scrub, a mud wrap or an ayurvedic oil treatment.
In the Area
Angkor Wat is the jewel in the crown, but don’t miss the immense walled city of Angkor Thom, home to the stunning Bayon, atmospheric Ta Prohm’s tree-filled temples and the elaborate carvings of the diminutive Banteay Srei. Browse the Old Market and the chic boutiques and galleries around the Foreign Correspondents Club and along Alley West and Passage. A tuk-tuk ride from the center, Artisans d’Angkor sells beautiful silk clothes, bags and soft furnishings made in its own on-site workshop. Round it off with a creative cocktail at expat favourite Miss Wong.
