River Road
Siem Reap
Tel: 855 63 963 390's insider take:

This Orient Express hotel is a deluxe all-wood compound modeled on the centuries-old Khmer style, with gorgeous gardens, pitched roofs, and wide terraces. The 54 guest rooms (and one suite) have colorful silk pillows, bamboo screens, and oversize bathtubs. It's a luxurious, serene oasis by the Siem Reap River in the center of town. And if the lovely deck off your room or the calming, shaded saltwater pool area (adorned with 45,000 green tiles) get boring, you can always play a game of chess or read in the hotel's cozy library, or head out into the Old Market, which is a ten-minute walk or $1 tuk tuk ride away.

"In walking distance of the Angkor complex," this hotel within a walled garden "manages to feel insulated from the bustle nearby." In deluxe rooms with hardwoods and bamboo, "the sliding rattan doors separating the bathroom and living room make a big space feel private." The Dining Room serves international and Khmer cuisine. Kong Kea ("Water for the God") Spa uses local, organic products.
