Where to work: Anantara to reopen high-end luxury resort in Cambodia
Angkor, Cambodia – 30 March 2017 –
Anantara Angkor Resort reopens as Siem Reap’s premier all-suite boutique resort and gateway to the heart of Cambodia’s ancient Khmer Empire. Renovations to the suites, restaurants and common areas plus the addition of several amenities and services ensure that every step of the guest’s local immersion and high adventure are seamlessly navigated and masterfully personalized.
Each of the 39 suites has recently undergone a complete upgrade and are accented with teak wood trimmings and sandstone sculptures reminiscent of the famed Apsara dancers. Guests are invited to relive the traditional Cambodian (Khmer) lifestyle while enjoying ample lounging space. Romance and relaxation abound between the bathtubs of the Premier Suites or the Terrace and Premier Terrace Suites with their private plunge pools. Lush greenery provides privacy, emulating the jungle-clad temples that still stand only a few minutes from the resort.
Dining at Anantara Angkor is refined with a new concept at Chi Restaurant and Bar. Offering progressive Khmer cuisine, ‘Chi’ derives its name from the Khmer word for ‘herb’ and indigenous herbs and spices are very much the hero here – flourishing in the resort’s garden, plucked fresh each day and woven into a thoughtful menu that fuses local sensibility with contemporary artistry.
Dining by Design journeys include a private chef and butler, a choice of connoisseur menus, and an enchanting courtyard setting. Guests may also opt for local immersion by taking their dining experiences to hidden temples or countryside rice paddies – offered exclusively to Anantara guests. Foodies will love Anantara’s signature Spice Spoons cooking class, where they can learn how to prepare traditional Khmer dishes.
