Appealing to discerning travellers, Anantara Angkor Resort reopens as Siem Reap’s premier all-suite boutique resort and gateway to the heart of Cambodia’s ancient Khmer Empire.
Anantara Angkor carves out a quiet nook in Siem Reap; bringing a retreat-like atmosphere to guests at its central location between downtown, airport and temples.
Each of the 39 suites have recently undergone a complete upgrade and are accented with teak wood trimmings and sandstone sculptures reminiscent of the famed Apsara dancers. Guests are invited to relive traditional Cambodian (Khmer) lifestyle through ample lounging space. Lush greenery provides privacy, emulating the jungle-clad temples that still stand only a few minutes from the resort.
Experience Butlers offer guests curated local knowledge unparalleled throughout the country. Butlers greet guests with a white lotus – a symbol of purity and enlightenment in Khmer culture, before whisking them to the Anantara Spa for a welcoming foot ritual. They remain on-hand to personalise each moment of the journey, from temple tours to jungle exploration and countryside visits for their guests. More than 100 uniquely created activities are on offer through the resort’s Discovery Guidebook, ensuring guests carry home enchanting memories of Cambodia.
Dining at Anantara Angkor is also refined with a new concept at Chi Restaurant and Bar. Offering progressive Khmer cuisine, ‘Chi’ derives its name from the Khmer word for ‘herb’ and indigenous herbs and spices are very much the hero here – flourishing in the resort’s garden, plucked fresh each day and woven into a thoughtful menu that fuses local sensibility with contemporary artistry. Dining by Design journeys include a private chef and butler, a choice of connoisseur menus, and an enchanting courtyard setting. Opt for ultimate in local immersion by taking your dining experiences to hidden temples or countryside rice paddies – offered exclusively to Anantara guests. Foodies rejoice with Spice Spoons cooking class, an Anantara classic on local food expertise.
A stay at Anantara is incomplete without visiting the rejuvenating spa. Khmer massage is heralded as the front runner to Traditional Thai massage. The assisted stretching and body alignment was originally created to revitalise monks after long periods of meditation.
Anantara Angkor pays tribute to Khmer culture in thoughtful ways. A bird’s eye view reveals that it is shaped to resemble Angkor Wat. At ground level it is reminiscent of a grand Khmer villa, with a central courtyard pool inspired by an ancient royal bathing pool. Featuring naturally salted water, its therapeutic properties ensure no chemicals are necessary, thereby providing soothing relief to a sun-drenched or travel-weary body. Poolside service from Salt provides modern comforts.
The temples of Angkor are considered a must-visit destination, and Anantara Angkor is a respected authority in Khmer culture. Nestled only 10 minutes away from the UNESCO World Heritage Area that includes the legendary Angkor Wat, no other 5-star resort in Siem Reap offers such a comprehensive destination experience, all while supported by the renowned expertise of the Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas brand.
