An intimate Khmer-style hotel, La Résidence d’Angkor is situated beside the tree-shaded river at the heart of Siem Reap. It’s ideally located for exploring the majestic temples of Angkor Wat and the great Tonle Sap Lake.
The hotel is just a short transfer from Siem Reap airport, which is only a one-hour flight from Bangkok, but for those wishing for a more scenic arrival, a boat trip is available from Phnom Penh. You’ll travel up the Mekong River and through the beautiful Tonle Sap Lake, arriving in Siem Reap three days later.
Stay here and you’ve plenty of culture and attractions virtually on the doorstep. Angkor Wat, the most famous of Cambodia’s Khmer civilisation complexes, is just ten minutes away, so you have the advantage of getting there early to beat the main crowds, which is one of the best ways to see this magical site. You’ll be just moments away from the upcoming fashion district of Kandal Street, art galleries, colourful craft markets and the lively cafe and bar quarter too.
Belmond La Résidence d’Angkor lies in lush, tropical gardens away from the hustle and bustle. The addition of lotus ponds creates a very tranquil retreat and there’s a swimming pool filled with saltwater using a unique system which removes the need for artificial chlorination, offering you a more pleasant experience as you jump in to escape the heat.
When it comes to dining indulge in royal Khmer cuisine at Spice Circle or refined international and Asian dishes at Ember, while cocktails at the Martini Lounge are sublime. To completely chill out, head to the Kong Kea Spa, which is the most spacious of its kind in Cambodia and treatments here embrace ancient Cambodian healing arts to provide a unique sensory experience. And there’s a fitness centre fully equipped with free weights and cardio-vascular training machines to maintain your exercise regime.
