One of the earliest hotels to establish itself as a chic hotel in Siem Reap, La Résidence has upheld its excellent experience while other luxury hotels have sprung up in the last decade. Still an oasis in the middle of the city.
The Belmond at Siem Reap – a city often defined as the “gateway” to Angkor Wat – feels like a secret. Hidden among lush gardens, a smattering of Indonesian-teak buildings are in perfect harmony with their surroundings; for the most peaceful experience, the Deluxe Suites are situated in the quietest part of the hotel and have huge freestanding bathtubs, walk-in rain showers and private garden terraces. Visit the hotel’s invitingly aromatic Spice Circle restaurant to experience “hawker-style” Khmer cuisine.
