If you are seeking an intimate stay in Angkor, head to The Sothea. Tucked amid lush gardens with flowering trees and cascading waterways, this all-suite property is a hidden oasis of tranquility in the heart of Siem Reap. The 39 suites are tastefully appointed in a harmonious blend of contemporary luxuries with refined Khmer artisanship: think polished hardwood floors, claw-foot tubs and luxurious settees topped with silk roll cushions. And to top it up, each suite includes a personal butler dedicated to the needs and whims of each guest.
Enjoy the tantalizing taste of signature Cambodian dishes at the Chatra restaurant, or sip funky cocktails in the striking candle-lit atmosphere of the Flame bar. The Spa Apsara offers some of the city’s best organic-based treatments and yoga sessions. The Sothea makes an ideal base in Angkor with the famed monuments a 15-minute drive away. Then again, it’s probably hard to make a choice between exploring the centuries-old temples or idling the day away at this sumptuous hideaway.
