Royal Angkor Resort is like no other resort in Siem Reap. This beautiful 20th century colonial-style Khmer building boasts complex pillars, tall ceilings, dramatic statues all with the essence of traditional Cambodian history and set within 5 hectares of tropical landscaped gardens. This rich landscape creates a soft, soothing ambiance which is equally matched by its magnificent rooms and staff, creating the ultimate luxurious stay.
Its location also boasts a a 5-minute drive from Siem Reap-Angkor International Airport and a 15-minute drive from the famous temples of Angkor which are a ‘must see’ on any travellers bucket list.
If you find yourself in the beautiful city of Siem Reap then I would highly recommend booking a few nights at the Royal Angkor Resort.
- Exercising at the fitness centre or enjoy traditional dance performances at the resort’s theatre
- Get a relaxing massage in their Royal Spa
- Taking a dip in the huge outdoor pool after a day of exploring
- Huge & beautiful rooms that enhances your stay
- The fabulous on-site coffee house
- Being 15 minutes away from the temples
During our stay at the Royal Angkor Resort we opted to stay in the Sakura Room which we were definitely not disappointed with and wished we could have stayed longer.
This particular room is Japanese themed, with beautiful hand carved wood furniture that has a warm and welcoming feel to it making us feel ultimately at ease. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, providing us with brilliant night sleep after a long day of exploring the temples and Siem Reap’s city.
The rooms come with two double beds, air conditioning (which is definitely needed), a jacuzzi bathtub, TV with Satellite channels, tea & coffee making facilities, room safe, shower, free toiletries, bathrobes & slippers and luggage storage.
They also have four other types of rooms which you can view here.
Royal Spa is one of Siem Reap’s sanctuaries for relaxation, wellness and harmony. True to customary practices, all of their treatments and massages are deeply rooted in the Angkorian-time-old healing techniques that promotes muscle restoration and spiritual rejuvenation.
Their fairways are typically generous, but their bunkering style is impressively bold.
The greens have plenty of subtle undulations and they reward and encourage a variety of approach shots. The Royal Angkor Resort offers golf packages at the new Nick Faldo designed golf course, Located just 5 minutes from the Resort, it offers 18-holes, 7209 yards and 6634 meters of pure golfing pleasure.
This pool is honestly huge and most certainly welcoming! Dive into it cool depths to escape the humid Cambodian heat after a day of exploring the historical temples or have a chill out day spent on its many sun loungers topping up your tan with drinks from the on-site bar.
The food here is absolutely delicious and you rarely have to leave the resort to quench your culinary tastebuds. Garden Café is a non typical fine dining restaurant offering a wide array of gourmet food selections and paired with the finest wines.
Get out and explore
Be sure to check out Angkor Wat temple for sunrise and watch as it majestically glows under the sunshine and offering the perfect photo opportunities. There are also the Siem Reap markets, Pub Street, and a load more temples dotted around the city that are definitely worth visiting.

The pool is huge and the location itself are hands down the best part about the Royal Angkor Resort. When you throw in the spa & wellness treatment centre, the delicious restaurant food and large tropical gardens you are definitely onto a winner.
