Traveling to Siem Reap, Cambodia to explore the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat? There’s a new place to rest your head while visiting the UNESCO World Heritage site. In fact, Belmond La Résidence d’Angkor isn’t a new property, but after a six-month closure for a renovation, it’s been relaunched as an all-suite hotel. Equipped with private terraces, the new-look suites (59 of them) showcase the work of local artisans: silk textiles, traditional hardwood furniture, and handmade iron fixtures.

There’s a new library, and an art collection curated by Southeast Asian art specialist Roger Nelson. The gastronomic restaurant has had a makeover; called Spice Circle, it now features a new outdoor space with a “tuk tuk food display.” Other F&B outlets include a casual pool grill and an indoor-outdoor cocktail bar. 

Belmond currently owns owns and operates 47 luxury hotel, rail and river cruise experiences; the hotel collection includes the Belmond Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro and Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa on the Riviera Maya.
