Our favourite rooms
For views over the courtyard pool from your balcony, opt for a spacious upper-floor Deluxe Room, or for privacy and a small garden, make it a ground-floor Deluxe pad. Our personal faves are the Superior Poolside boudoirs with chill-out porches just steps from the refreshing lap pool. Showers get more sumptuous as you upgrade.
In a tranquil internal courtyard, the sculptural black-tiled lap pool encourages cooling dips, backed by a soothing waterfall feature and flanked by palms and sleek loungers. The adjacent Pool Bar is a stylish spot for cocktails, smoothies, juices, coffees, teas or snacks, with a cabana den for private dining or shaded snoozing.
Trainers for temple-hopping; flip-flops for tackling town in the wet season. The hotel provides umbrellas, but bring your own mosquito repellant and sun cream (afternoon rays can be scorching).
Pets are not permitted. All rooms are non-smoking, but guests can smoke on Deluxe Room terraces.
Welcome, although the hotel has a sophisticated, adult feel, with lots of toddler-unfriendly antiques and stairs. Baby cots are free and extra beds can be supplied for older kids for US$49 a night. Babysitting costs US$5 an hour, with an hour's notice.
Pets are not permitted.
US$5 of each night's booking goes towards the Shinta Mani Foundation, which trains local Cambodians in the hospitality industry (guests can visit the development centre at the hotel). The foundation also supports a raft of other social projects in Siem Reap, including health and dental care, a village school and small businesses.
