The refurbished resort opens in Angkor
The Belmond La Résidence D’Angkor (0845 0772 222; belmond.com) in Cambodia is all ready to host guests after undergoing a complete transformation into an all-suites property. With its mix of contemporary Cambodian as well as classic Khmer-era art, the interiors are a lovely blend of the past and present. Verdant gardens and a refreshing saltwater swimming pool make it the perfect haunt to escape the city noise. The new features include a Deluxe Poolside Suite with a large alfresco terrace offering views across the property's tropical gardens and saltwater swimming pool. 20 Poolside Junior Suites, 12 Garden Junior Suites, 8 Deluxe Studio Suites and 18 Junior Suites complete the accomodation options. The hotel’s new fine dining restaurant, Spice Circle, will serve traditional Cambodian and Khmer cuisine whereas the Ember will serve organic Asian food with a Latin twist in an outdoor dining space. The hotel’s bar, Martini Lounge, offers an exciting range of cocktails served with fresh tapas.
