Name: Heritage Suites Hotel
Siem Reap in Cambodia is a magical place to visit, it’s the gateway town to the epic temples of Angkor Wat and is itself a delightful place. Avoid the crowds at a serene and luxurious boutique hotel and where better than the newly refurbished, Heritage Suites Hotel.
The hotel is perfectly located to explore this magnificent area; you are in the heart of Siem Reap, just minutes away from the majestic Angkor temples.
Best Time To Visit
You definitely want to visit Siem Reap and Angkor in the dry season which falls between late November and early April. The nicest months weather-wise are December and January when there’s the least rainfall and temperatures are slightly cooler but of course, these also bring the most visitors and the temples can be packed so going very slightly out of peak season can be a good thing.
How To Get There
It’s very convenient to get to Siem Reap as it has its own airport; Siem Reap-Angkor International Airport. You can fly into here directly from Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai in China or Kuala Lumpur. From the airport, it is 8kms from the heart of Siem Reap and from the hotel and takes around 15 minutes by taxi to reach.
Style & Character
This sophisticated and totally gorgeous hotel is tucked behind a grand French-style colonial façade which lies nestled amidst lush tropical gardens. Most excitingly is the recent, impressive refurb of the gorgeous suites. Always a classy and chic hotel with strong Cambodian influences in its style, it has now been elevated into something truly special. The refurb also sees the exciting launch of the brand new Colonial Pool/ Jacuzzi Suites; definitely the place to stay here, but more on those later…
Service & Facilities
Despite its intimate size, the facilities here are exceptional. The Heritage in house Spa by Bodia boasts 3 luxurious treatment rooms (one of which is a couples room) and after a day on your feet sightseeing, your limbs will thank you for paying a visit here! After your treatment, relax in the steam baths, rain showers or over-sized bathtubs or alternatively, head to the hotel’s saltwater pool and let the poolside bar serve you a chilled beverage or two. Be sure to return at night too when the pool is beautifully and very romantically lit, Tuesdays and Saturdays there’s poolside entertainment too and the poolside gazebo can be booked for the ultimate meal for two.
For some assistance with the best places to visit and how to get around, the Heritage Adventures Tour Office are the people to talk to; they offer a full range of tailor-made excursions designed for the luxury traveller. There are many other charming little touches that truly elevate this hotel; all the rooms have in room espresso machines, you can take your airport transfer in a glamourous Vintage car, the tea facilities define the very art of tea making and the reception service is 24/7. Unsurprisingly with services like these, the service you receive is impeccable. Very attentive though never intrusive, the service is personalised, warm and super friendly!
Stay in one of 6 intimate rooms or more excitingly; one of 20 newly refurbished suites. The Bungalow Suites enjoy private walled gardens, a steam room and an oversized stone bathtub. Or there’s the heavenly new Colonial Suites where you can choose from either a large outdoor jacuzzi or an 8m lap pool next to your private terrace. These suites also have the steam room and oversized stone bathtub and would definitely get my vote! Or to really stretch out in a home from home villa, there’s The Residence, a huge space where you have your own outdoor jacuzzi, private pool, thatched-roof outdoor sala living space, and private walled garden; one problem – you’ll never want to leave!
Food & Drink
You are spoilt when it comes to food and drink too. The Heritage Restaurant was voted one of 2015’s Top Fine Dining Restaurants by Trip Advisor and is THE place to go in Siem Reap for an ultra-stylish evening. Located on the mezzanine, The Heritage Restaurant serves both delectable European cuisine alongside delicious traditional Khmer cuisine; the tasting menu is definitely worth sampling. Downstairs the Lobby Bistro has a chilled vibe and it perfect for a more relaxed bite to eat or a cocktail or two.
