“Oasis like hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

The first impression you get when you enter the hotel is that you're in a laid back luxurious Cambodian oasis. Which is actually one of Belmond's most notorious characteristics all around the world.
The fact that they menage to keep the local influences and add a touch of rustic luxury, making it all beautiful and comfortable makes this place really special. Public areas are beautiful and the pool is one of the most incredible ones I've ever seen - I even skipped an afternoon of tours just to spend some time laying there.
Rooms are very big, beautiful and provide a great hideaway after a whole day climbing temples. Excellent bed and linens, great big tub with shower and great amenities. The ones on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool are the best choice!
Breakfast was really good as was the food on the other restaurants - very affordable by the way, despite the hotel's 5 stars.
Location wise you couldn't ask for more. Very central, easy access to everywhere, by the river that cuts the city center.
It was one of my favorite hotels during a trip to Southeast Asia. Definitely worth it!

Room Tip: Go for the Pool View ones, preferebaly upper floor. River View actually faces the outside and the ri...

This place is just amazing, we felt like royalty visiting this hotel. Every member of staff was polite, helpful and smiling. The hotel room is elegantly decorated with beautiful wood decor. The bathroom has an enormous bath that was quickly filled so we could soothe our aching bones in the lovely hot water. On Thursday we were treated to Traditional Apsara Dancing while we ate the best meal we have ever had in our lives. Honestly i'm not joking. You must try it.

This hotel was just what we needed after a hot and dusty day touring the temples. Very lovely and relaxing. Get a room overlooking the pool. Spa services are fantastic & reasonably priced for a luxury hotel.

Small luxury hotel in ideal , safe location in Siem Reap. Short tuk tuk ride or walk to city centre around Pub Street, and to top restuarants that we enjoyed including Aha Wine Bar and Restaurant and Palate Restaurant. FCC a great place for lunch or cocktail.Recommend Frangipani Spa, a short walk from hotel just in behind ANZ Royal branch. Comprehensive services at fraction of price of hotel spa, which we found overpriced.
Hotel staff are very friendly , polite and helpful, with any arrangements you need such as car and guide to Angkor Wat and other temples. Rooms are clean, large and very comfortable, good wifi. We had a king bed room, with balcony over looking pool. Pool is large and a welcome swim at end of a long day out. Food at hotel is very good, but not exceptional. Probably best luxury 5 star small hotel in Siem Reap, small being a big part of its charm and tranquility.

Room Tip: Stay away from river/street side if you can, as you do get traffic noise that the side rooms and bac...

Very comfortable hotel with food and drink to match our five rating. The two hour 'happy hour' is highly recommended with a good range to choose from. The pool was very welcoming after a day visiting the temples!

I have always found La Residence to be an Oasis of relaxation after a hot day of touring Angkor Wat temples. The place is somewhat centrally located so it makes it easy walking distance to town, and a short tuk tuk ride to the temples. The rooms are very cool, spacious and well designed.

I would also recommend booking a dinner to see the Khmer Dance Performance on either Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday as it is a wonderful cultural experience. The dancer’s costumes are beautiful, and add much to the performance.

The bar staff in the Martini Lounge are well trained, and know how to properly present their selection of wines and drinks. It’s a nice place to get away from the heat of the day and just have a relaxing beverage and a snack. The menu provides a mix of cultures, so there is a selection for adults and kids alike.

Another recommendation I would make is transport to the temples. I opted to use Tuk Tuk motorcycle rickshaws with my 79 year old mother and her friend. They really enjoyed the experience because it put them closer to the culture. One one occasion we took a longer trip out of town to visit one of the temples for women, and it was a wonderful experience to be able to easily view, see, and smell the local Cambodia country side. They viewed the Tuk Tuk as one of the highlight experiences of their journey.

Although this was not my first visit to the hotel, it was my first visit to the spa. On the last day after our final temple tour I went for the facial. It was a great way to clean out the dirt from my hot travels. The spa staff were again very well trained, and it was a wonderful relaxing experience to end a wonderful trip to Siem Reap and Angkor Wat.

Room Tip: Garden Rooms were very good for older guests as they are on the ground floor.
