Overview

Belmond La Residence d’Angkor is a stylish hotel in a tranquil riverside setting within the vibrant tourist town of Siem Reap, northwest Cambodia. Cocooned by tropical gardens, yet only a short walk from bustling markets, galleries, and restaurants, this upmarket property boasts spacious accommodation, two restaurants, a bar, a lovely outdoor pool, and an award- winning spa, offering a peaceful retreat in a fantastic central location.

Communal areas include two restaurants: the Spice Circle has both indoor and alfresco seating and is open for breakfast and dinner with a menu focusing on Khmer cuisine, whilst the poolside Ember restaurant serves snacks and light meals throughout the day. A stylish cocktail lounge overlooks the tropical gardens and has indoor and outdoor seating, along with lovely river views. The hotel boasts a refreshing saltwater swimming pool with loungers, plus an onsite spa, and a well-equipped gym. There are also two boutiques selling locally made gifts and souvenirs.

The popular shops, markets, and restaurants of Siem Reap are all within a few minutes’ walk, whilst the Angkor temple complex and the renowned UNESCO world heritage site of Angkor Wat are a short drive away. Back at the hotel, unwind with a massage or beauty treatment at the in-house spa, enjoy a work out in the gym, or relax in the pool after a busy day’s sightseeing.

The accommodation comprises a selection of stylish and generously-proportioned suites spread out within the leafy grounds. Each unit has a king size or two twin beds, and a lounge area with a sofa and coffee table. Combining traditional and modern décor, all suites have teak furniture, colourful fabrics, and contemporary Cambodian art. The spacious marble bathrooms feature twin basins and separate WC, a free-standing bathtub, and a separate walk-in rainfall shower. All suites come with minibar, air conditioning, ceiling fans, Wi-Fi, and satellite TV. Outside is a private veranda or balcony, with seating and lovely garden or river views. A number of the larger suites have a generous outdoor eating area, furnished with a dining table and chairs.

Children are extremely welcome at the hotel, and an extra bed can be provided in suites, subject to prior arrangement. Several interconnecting units are also available, ideal for families or larger groups. There’s a children’s menu, along with toys and board games, and a babysitting service can be arranged. Note that the hotel pool is unfenced, and parents are reminded that children should be supervised at all times.

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.
