A visit to the world-famous Angkor Temples in Cambodia is definitely bucket list territory; stay in Siem Reap, the beautiful town which also serves as the gateway to Angkor, on your visit and make sure your hotel serves as a peaceful sanctuary to return to after a hot day sightseeing; Sabara Angkor Resort & Spa meets this brief very nicely indeed.
Your location at Sabara Angkor Resort & Spa really couldn’t be better; you are 15 minutes from the Angkor Complex and just 8 minutes from Siem Reap International Airport. The hotel is located in a calm and tranquil area of Siem Reap, just near enough from the bustling downtown area for it to be accessible but also far away enough to be able to really escape and find some peace. When you want to head downtown, the hotel lay on a complimentary tuk tuk service and they’ll even lend you a phone so you can call when you want to head back; exceptional service!
Style & Character
The architecture and interior design is a careful balance of the traditional Khmer style with a contemporary minimalist feel. It is luxuriously and beautifully achieved.
Service & Facilities
When you return from a day of exploring Siem Reap, head to the beautiful saltwater swimming pool; admire the views of the gardens and even better relax at the fabulous poolside bar. There’s a separate pool area for children and a jacuzzi too. To really indulge those aching muscles after all that walking, book a treatment at the Haemon Spa and let a Cambodian treatment restore your body’s balance and harmony. The hotel also run a variety of activities and experiences for guests including cookery classes, pottery making, archery, jeep tours and horse riding.
The hotel is Cambodian owned and run, and supporting the local community is clearly very important to them. The hospitality they offer is excellent; the staff are friendly, efficient and genuinely seem to want to make your stay a memorable one. Those little extras go a long way; fresh coconut juice and cold towels to welcome you and cool drinks when you return from a hot day out.
