Among La Résidence d’Angkor, A Belmond Hotel, Siem Reap’s many attributes, its wonderful synthesis of design styles is the first to stand out.
Here you will find Khmer-inspired touches throughout, such as traditional vaulted roofs, wooden balconies and stone statues aplenty, all interwoven around what is otherwise a fully 21st century, luxury Cambodian hotel. And, as a self-styled hideaway sheltered from the bustle of Siem Reap centre – though still close enough to the action for fantastic temple day trips, cultural tours and more – La Résidence d’Angkor, A Belmond Hotel, Siem Reap really does help make exploring this exciting area of Cambodia as effortless as possible.
There’s an onsite spa that is relatively modest in size yet offers a fine menu of traditional treatments, relaxation therapies and massages, as well as yoga classes, a sauna and indoor pool. Then, with the Siem Reap River nearby, the hotel’s gardens are suitably luscious and also a pleasure to lounge around, particularly if taking a dip in the blissful central swimming pool or its surrounding sun patio, complete with plush loungers and daybeds. Belmond’s suites are just as serene, as carefully crafted interiors flaunt patterned cushions and authentic mosaic tiles on one hand, and a modern minimalist touch on the other. The result is a harmonious space that feels fittingly respectful of Cambodian culture while also extremely comfortable and spacious too, with their private terraces, standalone bathtubs and king-size beds; only the size of the floorplan and view differing between each suite category.
Two fine dining restaurants, a cocktail lounge and al fresco terrace lined with sofas plus a gym, nearby golf course and bikes to hire seals the deal, in what is one of Siem Reap’s more family-friendly luxury hotels, with that renowned Belmond attention to detail and impeccable service to boot.
The same combination of styles that can be found throughout La Résidence d’Angkor, A Belmond Hotel, Siem Reap continues into the all-suite guestrooms. As such, Khmer-inspired ornaments, artworks and traditional fabrics meet modern furnishings and white walls, plush bathrooms with a separate tub, king-size beds and private terraces, all feeling airy and light thanks to their French windows, good size floorplan and higher than average ceilings.
Celebrating the best Asian-inspired dishes and innovative flavour combos alike, the poolside Ember Restaurant is a lip-smacking delight. Expect refined plates of sushi, light marinades and zingy salads, all prepared courtesy of a fun open-air kitchen.
It is all about local food, modern revamps on traditional recipes and the best regional ingredients at Spice Circle Restaurant. The dining patio is a nice choice on warm evenings, though the star of the show is, of course, the exemplary Khmer cuisine on offer whether eating inside or out.
An elegant cocktail and cigar bar with either an outdoor terrace – complete with cosy cushioned sofas – or casual bar stools to while away the evenings at Belmond La Résidence d'Angkor all-too-easily.
Activities and Entertainment
Thanks to its location, daytrips to the surrounding Angkor temples and other archaeological sites are all easily arranged while staying here. There are bikes to hire, culinary and culture classes, a golf course nearby, sunset cruises and helicopter tours available too, while little ones can be kept entertained with board games and a babysitting service, should you need it.
The Belmond La Résidence d'Angkor’s central swimming pool and surrounding sun patio are real highlights of any stay, so too the spa, indoor pool and sauna. There’s a gym and those verdant grounds to enjoy, perhaps during an outdoor yoga class as well as an onsite boutique too.
