Set in a tranquil location overlooking the Siem Reap River, Jaya House River Park sits just outside the bustling streets of the city. The stylish boutique hotel is surrounded by mature trees and has a tropical hanging garden with swinging day beds for afternoon relaxation.
Inside, the sleek, contemporary style in a monochromatic palette oozes understated elegance. Artworks by students at the local Small Art School, one of a number of charities supported by the hotel, hang on the walls, fresh flowers add a splash of vibrancy, and the attentive and discreet staff make guests feel right at home.
The 36 spacious rooms are decked out with dark woods, bright white walls and linens, large portraits, and cool gray fabrics with black and white touches. Two swimming pools and a spa provide ample space for relaxation, while the all-day-dining restaurant serves both Western and Khmer cuisine. A terrace bar overlooking the gardens provides good views as you unwind with a drink after a day exploring the nearby temples.
The hotel is a five minute drive from central Siem Reap or the Angkor temples with a complimentary tuk-tuk provided for guests.
