Where to stay

The pool at Amansara, luxury hotel in Cambodia

Amansara

This secluded enclave was built in the 1960s as the guest villa of King Sihanouk.

Belmond La Residence d'Angkor

Belmond La Residence d'Angkor

Set within a leafy walled garden on the riverside in central Siem Reap, the hotel is just 15 minutes drive from Angkor Wat.

Shinta Mani Shack

Shinta Mani Shack

Much like its sister hotel, Shinta Mani Shack (formerly Shinta Mani Resort) provides arguably one of the most contemporary and design-focused places to stay in Siem Reap. The resort is walking distance of the old market, cafés and bars, and just a 15 minute drive from the temples of Angkor.

Aqua Mekong

Aqua Mekong

Aqua Expeditions started life with two luxury cruise ships on the Amazon before choosing another mighty river – the Mekong – for their third vessel. Aqua Mekong duly launched in 2014, and plies the waters between Saigon in Vietnam and Siem Reap in Cambodia, home to the extraordinary temple complex of Angkor Wat.

Shinta Mani Angkor

Shinta Mani Angkor

Located just 15 minutes from the Temples of Angkor, whilst remaining within easy reach of the bars and restaurants of central Siem Reap, the Shinta Mani Angkor (formerly Shinta Mani Club) is a slick and comfortable base from which to explore.

Phum Baitang

Phum Baitang

Sitting pretty within eight acres of luscious gardens and rice paddy fields near to Siem Reap, guests of Phum Baitang can lounge by the pool or on their private terrace, and enjoy the views of quintessential rural Cambodia, without foregoing the comfort of a luxury retreat, or the conveniences of the nearby town.

A Stilted House at Sala Lodges - Cambodia

Sala Lodges

The stilted ‘lodges’ at Sala Lodges have made quite the journey to arrive at their home in the heart of Cambodian countryside, near to Siem Reap. The lodges are traditional Cambodian homes, collected from villages all over the country and transported to Siem Reap, where they have been rebuilt, and upgraded to offer the comfort of a boutique hotel.

Junior Suite at Jaya House River Park

Jaya House River Park

Jaya House River Park is a luxurious boutique hideaway located on the Siem Reap riverbanks. Although the hotel is located on a tranquil part of the riverfront, it’s only a few minutes’ drive in a tuk-tuk to Angkor Archaeological Park and to the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
