Revamped Luxury at Angkor Wat With Belmond La Résidence d’Angkor

Belmond La Résidence d’Angkor has suites decorated in local materials to represent Cambodia.

Belmond La Résidence d’Angkor has just reopened as an all-suite hotel and we think it will be an instant favorite with travelers visiting Angkor Wat temple, which is just 10 minutes from the hotel. The property now has 59 suites complete with private terraces. Luxury Travel Advisor suggests VIPs book a One Bedroom Poolside Suite. This top accommodation boasts views of the tropical gardens, which guests can expect to be stunning as they are inspired by Khmer Era, the same era that gave Cambodia Angkor Wat. The suite also has a large dining room, living room space, an oversized tub and a separate rain shower. Best part? The interior is decorated in local materials to represent Cambodia. In fact, the whole hotel celebrates the region with a special art collection curated by Southeast Asian art specialist Roger Nelson, who has also created a special book collection for the library, so plan on staying in for the evening to brush up on your reading.
