Belmond relaunches La Residence D'Angkor
November 30, 2016: Offering stylish new rooms, restaurants and bars, Belmond La Résidence D’Angkor in Cambodia has reopened as an all-suite hotel following a full refurbishment. Newly designed interiors inspired by the classical Khmer era juxtaposed with contemporary Cambodian art connect the past with the present.
The new accommodations include a Deluxe Poolside Suite with a large alfresco terrace offering views across the tropical gardens and saltwater swimming pool; 20 Poolside Junior Suites, 12 Garden Junior Suites, 8 Deluxe Studio Suites and 18 Junior Suites. Interior designs by leading international designers and architects feature locally handwoven jewel-coloured silks, traditionally crafted hard wood furnishings and detailed ironmongery created by local artisans.
Featuring a new outdoor dining space and water feature, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant will reopen as Spice Circle, serving traditional Cambodian and Khmer cuisine and pop-up tuktuk food displays; Ember restaurant highlights the chef’s culinary skills with a new show kitchen and pizza oven; guests can dine on organic Asian food with a Latin twist in an outdoor dining space and the hotel’s bar, Martini Lounge, offers a tempting new selection of creative cocktails served with fresh tapas.
The hotel’s gardens have been freshly landscaped to create a sense of tranquility within the bustling city. Surrounded by tropical walled gardens, the landscaped designs are inspired by the central Khmer style Siraphorn statue. In early 2017, new guest experiences will be introduced that will take guest to the Angkor Wat temples as well as featuring immersive culinary and cultural activities.
Belmond La Résidence D’Angkor sits in the midst of tranquil villages and centuries old jungle in the heart of Siem Reap. Located less than ten minutes from the Angkor Wat temple complex, the hotel is the ideal base for exploring the ancient historical sites as well as connecting with emerging Cambodian cultures and enjoying a secluded retreat in which to relax and switch off from the everyday.
