There’s an abundance of hotels in Siem Reap, Cambodia, thanks to the famous UNESCO-honoured Angkor temples that are a short drive from town, but this can make it a challenge to determine where to stay.

Hotels in the centre of the city tend to be noisy, whether it’s the kitchen from the restaurant next door, music from the nearby bar or the early morning traffic. Those who come to the area to relax as well as to see the magnificent temples will appreciate the peacefulness of Trésor d’Angkor Suite, a boutique hotel in the countryside in between the airport and downtown Siem Reap.


The centrepiece of the hotel is an immense infinity pool surrounded by parasols and lounge chairs. It’s got a shallow end for kids, in-water sunbeds, and lots of room for lengths or splashing around. Lie in it or next to it in the shade or sun with a book and a cocktail and you’ll find it challenging to muster up the energy to leave.

Surrounding the pool are flowering trees and a grassy area, circled by one-storey villa buildings (two suites in each) and the main building housing reception and the restaurant. Four rooms have their own private pools in a small back patio area and there are three interconnected family rooms, ideal for a group which wants to be close and have lots of space to spread out.

Each of Trésor d’Angkor’s rooms is large and spacious with an immense king sized bed, polished wood floors and cool grey decor. They come equipped with a tv, safe, mini fridge, desk and coffee station with a kettle.

The bathrooms are curtained off from the rest of the suite. They are also large, with a beautiful long shallow bathtub, separate shower area, toilet area and a sink with a long counter. Each suite also has a front porch and a rooftop deck ideal for watching the beautiful sunset. Want to have a private dinner up there? No problem just ask.

Trésor d’Angkor guests benefit from the excellent cooking of Chef Sophol. He buys fresh ingredients from local markets to create a wide variety of western and Asian dishes. Enjoy his cooking in the hotel’s open-air restaurant with its nearby pools of ornamental fish. Beforehand, arrange for wine and hors d’oeuvres on the restaurant’s rooftop, and be sure to ask for the spicy shrimp from Sihanoukville. It will be a highlight of your stay.

The hotel is Cambodian-owned and managed, so staying at Trésor d’Angkor helps invigorate the Cambodian economy. Rates include return airport transfer in an air-conditioned vehicle, à la carte breakfast and a daily tuk-tuk ride into town.
