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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)

    The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.

    Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!

    Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good

    Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.

    Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.

    Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
