Like a fully-opened lotus flower, Anantara Angkor Resort is making its final transformation from a quaint boutique property to a luxurious all-suite resort. Guests of Anantara Angkor will be immersed in the local Khmer culture through build-your-own-adventure activities, a selection of all-inclusive packages, world-heralded Khmer cuisine and indigenous spa treatments, all the while being given exceptional personal attention from the resort's dedicated Experience Butlers. Nestled only 10 minutes away from the UNESCO World Heritage Area that includes the legendary Angkor Wat, no other 5-star resort in Siem Reap will offer such a comprehensive destination experience, all while supported by the renowned expertise of the Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas brand.
The New Year roll-out includes soft refurbishments of the resort’s 34 rooms, main restaurant, entrance and lobby. Eight suite categories will unfold, including converting the resort’s ground and first floor Deluxe and Premier Rooms into Premier and Terrace Suites, increasing overall square footage both inside and out.
The new suites will take bookings in time for this year’s peak season. Aficionados of Southeast Asia and textiles will delight in the addition of one- and two-bedroom Jim Thompson Explorer Suites. Boasting 178 and 235 square meters respectively, the imported fine Thai silk will feature throughout each suite, enveloping furniture in bold colours and lustrous appeal. The Explorer Suites will be available by January, 2017. Anantara Ankor's popular Anantara and Sothea suites will also receive a fresh makeover.
Dining at Anantara Angkor is an elegant affair, an opportunity to savour the distinctive flavours of the region amidst a legendary setting. The restaurant at Anantara Angkor will soon be re-styled as the fashionable “Chi Restaurant and Bar”, deriving its name from the Khmer word for “herb”. Khmer cuisine is known for its aromatic ingredients and vibrant colours, and the dining on offer here will be no exception, with a strong focus on seasonal, organic ingredients and a commitment to sustainability. Locavore in concept, reputable suppliers and the appointment of an experienced Executive Chef will ensure authenticity in the flavour. “L Lounge” also emerges as a comfortable alternative, serving afternoon high tea, signature cocktails, Asian tapas and champagne while overlooking the resort’s green grove.
The 1,000+ temples of Angkor are considered a must-visit destination, and Anantara Angkor is a respected authority in Khmer culture. A melange of bucket list-type activities give way to endless adventure. Anantara's signature Dining by Design experience is like no other here, as guests can choose their time of day, method of transportation, unparalleled location, dining and drink enhancements from a list of over 100 possible combinations. Enjoy a sunset in a countryside rice paddy with a barbecue with bubbles, or the quintessential sunrise at Angkor Wat before whisking off in a private car to a secret temple for a picnic breakfast. The resort’s Experience Butlers and dedicated destination experts can help guests design a bespoke dining experience that couples their imagination with spectacular locations in and around Siem Reap.
