Anantara's banner in old world Siem Reap bears all the right notes of luxury - elegant interiors, comfortable rooms and an inviting pool that shimmers like emerald under the Cambodian sky.
Chi is a restaurant dedicated to 'progressive Cambodian cuisine', and generally does a good job dishing out inspired Khmer dishes updated for tourists' tastes. The in-room dining here is particularly noteworthy, its cheese and ham panini our resolute favourite. From mani-pedi, foot massage to 2 hours spa rituals, Siem Reap's Anantara Spa opens to a plethora of sensuous pleasures.
One can sense that staff here are uncommonly dedicated to the well-being of guests as they routinely enquire after your needs and expediently attend to them as communicated. The details in refinement however, is what they need to focus on.
The rooms here reflect the brand's penchant for playing it safe with classically attuned wooden accents and earth tones. The resplendent Anantara Explorer Suite, with private plunge pool, massage room, complimentary bar, and a gorgeous bedroom set with Jim Thomson silk panels, conjures enough regal accents that befits a king.
