Park Hyatt Siem Reap

Aug 18, 2013

When Hotel de la Paix, Siem Reap’s fabled grand dame, shuttered its doors, there was a public outcry. Thankfully, the iconic building has rebranded and reopened as Park Hyatt Siem Reap. This five-star stunner aims to preserve the distinctly Khmer aesthetic of its former incarnation, while adding updated amenities and modern touches. The 104 guestrooms and 13 suites come fitted with thoughtful additions such as Nespresso machines, Italian marble and custom furniture and artwork. The Dining Room, the hotel’s signature restaurant, serves up Indochine-inflected French fare.

If it’s good enough for the Tomb Raider, then it’s good enough for pretty much anybody. Angelina Jolie is just one of a host of A-listers who’ve stayed at this boutique.

Anantara Angkor Resort

Unlike many of the luxury resorts clustered around Siem Reap, this 39-room property aims to immerse guests in the local culture rather than cocoon them from it.
