There are many hotels to choose from in Siem Reap, because the exquisite temple complexes in the vicinity attract many visitors. A number of these hotels are of good quality and a few can be called grand, but we counted ourselves lucky to have settled for the intimate luxury offered by La Résidence. Located in the middle of town, on the river, the hotel is relatively small at 54 rooms. Its design – traditional French colonial, with a lot of dark wood – creates an ‘entre-nous’ feeling that we found very pleasing. Most of the hotel’s rooms enclose the scenic swimming pool. The rooms are very well appointed and, in combination with their dark wood panelling and furnishings, provide an ambience of quiet opulence.
The hotel’s staff is extremely attentive and professional, offering a high standard of friendly and efficient service. We have stayed at many another high-end hotel in the region, but have rarely come across one offering – at a relatively moderate price – quite that distinctive combination of traditional style and modern comfort as La Résidence d’Angkor.
