Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Belmond La Residence d'Angkor sits alongside the river in lush gardens in the heart of Siem Reap, close to Angkor Wat.

Rooms at Belmond La Residence d'Angkor

The attractive suites, some of which are poolside, take inspiration from Khmer architecture, and feature traditional hardwoods, bamboo and natural silks and cotton. They have lovely views over the pool or gardens, luxurious touches, and best of all, huge free-standing baths, which really hit the mark after a day’s sightseeing.

Food & Drink

Dine poolside at Ember, which has a pizza oven and a delicious a la carte menu and is transformed by candlelight in the evening, or head to the Circle restaurant for traditional Khmer cuisine that is given a contemporary touch, fragranced by chilli and lemongrass. Meanwhile, the place to be is the Martini Bar, for sunset cocktails and tapas. 


The large freshwater swimming pool sits deep within palms, bougainvillea and frangipani and is a welcome refuge from the midday sun, while total body rejuvenation is promised in the spa, with its signature Kong Kea ritual of cleansing, heating, treating and resting.
