La Résidence d’Angkor,a Belmond Hotel was one of the first grand hotels to open in Siem Reap. Today, a short journey from Angkor Wat, the coveted riverside position puts guests in the heart of the city. Yet within the walls, this quiet oasis invites you to slow down. Savour this place. Step inside the hotel's discreet entrance, wander across a wooden bridge flanked by tropical flora and you’ll be welcomed with unerring grace.
Arranged around a beautiful courtyard, the hotel's suites are your personal haven. Indonesian teak, traditionally carved furnishings and jewel-toned silks pay homage to old-world Cambodia. Meanwhile, bespoke artworks by contemporary local artists adorn the walls. See something you like? A reproduction print makes a fitting souvenir. Recline on your private terrace for a moment of alfresco serenity. Breakfast here on local fruits as kaleidoscopic butterflies dance overhead or sip a refreshing sunset cocktail.

Flourishing between the 9th and 14th centuries, the Khmer Empire was once the most powerful ruling force in Southeast Asia, governing much of what today is Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and southern Vietnam. At its zenith, the imperial capital of Angkor was the world’s largest city. Historians estimate that it spread over a 1,000 square kilometres – close to the size of modern Los Angeles – and housed more than a million people. It was a place of music and dance, festivities and fireworks, horse racing and cock fights.
