Keen to explore Cambodia’s extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Site, Angkor Wat? In just a few days’ time, Anantara Resorts will be opening a new retreat in Siem Reap, right at the doorstep to the ancient temple ruins. The Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa was designed to resemble “a grand Khmer villa” with 39 rooms and suites centered around a garden courtyard- complete with salt water pool.
Despite its small size, the hotel will have an Anantara Spa equipped with a gym, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and nine treatment rooms (including four foot massage rooms!). The rooftop garden will host yoga sessions, while the two restaurants will feature traditional Khmer cooking classes.
In addition, the hotel has a network of local guides who can unveil the secrets of Angkor Wat, on foot or by bicycle, and even set up a picnic at Angkor Thom. The resident “Streetwise Guru” can lead you on a tour of the local markets. For more information, visit http://angkor.anantara.com
