Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa
This characterful colonial style hotel sits in the heart of Siem Reap, directly opposite the Royal Park in a prime position. Not only does it successfully blend harmoniously into its natural surroundings, it also impresses upon arrival thanks to its impressive 1930's style architecture: meaning guests are met with both an air of tranquillity and sophistication.
Comprising of 120 rooms and 10 suites, this property is fairly large and although it can get busy during peak season, its open-air resort design lends a spacious feel. Traditional décor and great old-fashioned lifts with metal shutters add to the authenticity of the rooms and suites, as do their beautiful polished wooden floors, elegant furniture and original high ceilings. We recommending staying in the suites, either Prestige Suites or Colonial Suites, for the best balconies and commanding views over the Royal Park or the hotel’s saltwater swimming pool in its tropical garden.
Victoria Angkor is home to a newly renovated spa, salon and gym as well as two French-Khmer fusion restaurants (L’Escale and Le Connaisseur), and a bar, named L’Explorateur, serving great cocktails – an ideal spot for a nightcap.
The hotel is very well-suited to families as it has a kids club, a large salt-water pool to keep guests of all ages entertained, and connecting rooms are also available. A wealth of activities are offered here, from shopping in the on-site boutique - where you may well be tempted to bring home some local art - to meeting talented silk weavers who bring to life traditional scarf and tablecloths. Another highlight of this hotel is the fact that you can be escorted from the airport in a vintage car upon request!
Picturesque and elegant without being flashy, this property is an inviting retreat to call a home away from home while visiting Siem Reap. Victoria Angkor’s beautiful pool is the icing on the cake as cooling off after touring the crumbling Angkor temples in the heat is an absolute must.
