Each of the property’s 39 suites has recently undergone a complete upgrade, and is accented with teak wood trimmings and sandstone sculptures reminiscent of the famed Apsara Hindu dancers. There are bathtubs in the Premier Suites and private plunge pools in the Terrace and Premier Terrace Suites.

The Anantara and Sothea Suites feature a private garden, while a large balcony on the second level is perfect for in-suite al fresco dining. Each of the suites provides a separate living area, bathrooms with twin wardrobes, an en-suite spa room with daily massage inclusion, and a whirlpool Jacuzzi bath in the Sothea Suite. The one- and two-bedroom Jim Thompson Explorer Suites boast imported Thai silk overflowing throughout each suite, draping the furniture in bold colours and lustrous appeal.

Amenities and services include chauffeured roundtrip airport transfers, Experience Butler service to create bucket-list adventures, unlimited private tuk tuk transfers to and from the city centre, and complimentary in-room minibar.

Dining at Anantara Angkor is refined with a new concept at Chi Restaurant and Bar, which derives its name from the Khmer word for herband offers progressive Khmer cuisine. Dining by Design journeys features a private chef and butler, a choice of connoisseur menus, and an enchanting courtyard setting.

Khmer massage is heralded as the front runner to traditional Thai massage. The assisted stretching and body alignment was originally created to revitalise monks after long periods of meditation. At Anantara Spa it serves best to invigorate guests after a day of outdoor exploration or prepare journeymen for their next destination. www.angkor.anantara.com
