What I love about Park Hyatt Siem Reap
Delightful breakfast buffet
- Though they didn’t offer a sumptuous breakfast buffet, everything that was on display was of the highest quality with a concentration on its taste.
- Apart from the buffet counter, they also have a menu of made-to-order items in Western and Khmer styles. I tried their heavenly egg benedict and a heartful bowl of Khmer rice noodle soup. That was one of my best breakfast buffets ever!
- The morning ambiance at The Dining Room, where they serve their breakfast buffet, is beyond peaceful! You can even hear birds singing from the trees!
Enchanting afternoon tea moments
What’s a better experience than having afternoon tea on a swing bed?
That was for me not only a cool experience but also something that set this hotel apart from all others that I’d been to.
Stunning tropical pools
“The ground floor lush lap pool is shaded by parasols and cabanas. The first-floor free-form pool is a relaxing oasis with a lagoon design, green tiles and verdant nature.”
Chic hotel design with a cultural touch
Kudos to Bill Bensley, the hotel is designed in such a way that is both sophisticatedly esthetic and culturally inspiring.
While you can find Buddhist touches and Khmer elements all around the hotel, this omnipresence of the local culture feels not at all dominant. In fact, the hotel resembles a “live” exhibition where the past blends with the presence in every detail, from the books chosen to be displayed to the Buddhist statues, each with a unique history behind them. To put it simply, the hotel’s design gently appeals to all those with a refined taste.
Traditional dance performance at dinner
This is nowhere near as well-prepared as the Smile of Angkor show, but still is a great touch to guests’ dining experience.
Comfy room at Park Hyatt Siem Reap
What could have enhanced my experience at Park Hyatt Siem Reap
- Adding a specific theme or story to their afternoon tea could have elevated the experience there even more. (For example, the concept of Park Hyatt Saigon’s afternoon tea stems from the (fictional) story of a French lady who keeps a journal of posh experiences that she has in Saigon).
All in all, the luxury experiences I had at Park Hyatt Siem Reap were superb beyond words, especially when we decided to stay here during our honeymoon in Siem Reap! With great eagerness, I would gladly recommend this beautiful property to anyone who visits this ancient Cambodian city.

What a beautiful hotel! You are absolutely right that the design is a wonderful mix of traditional and modern styles. The afternoon tea on the beds hanging from the ceiling looks delightful. I lived in Vietnam for nine months this year, and am sad to say that I never made it to Siem Reap or even Phnom Penh. I hope to make it to Cambodia someday and will keep the Park Hyatt in mind as an option. Thanks for sharing!
You can’t really go wrong with a Park Hyatt. Absolutely love their tropical pools, probably where I’d spend most of my time. Also, the breakfast buffet looks great. Afternoon tea on a swing bed, wow!
What a great hotel. It looks beautiful and like the perfect place to stay if one wants to relax. That pool like really nice and I love the style of the interior design
This hotel is to die for. I love a great hotel, and this makes me want to visit right now. Lovely post
That afternoon tea and swimming pool looks absolutely to die for. I visited Siem Reap a few years ago on a backpacking trip but I would absolutely love to return and glam it up a bit more than I did. Lovely hotel!
Looks Amazing! Thanks for sharing.
Wow! What a gorgeous hotel! And the food looks incredible!
I tend to be more of a Marriott customer, and I have yet to stay in a Hyatt. Maybe I should give Hyatt a chance! Thanks for sharing!
Looks awesome! I’m travelling to Siem Reap next month and already booked a room here for 2 nights. It’s great to know more about the hotel thanks to your detailed post. By the way, did you find the location convenient to catch a tuk tuk tour to the Angkor?
Hi Yusuf, you can surely ask the hotel concierge to help book a day tour by tuk tuk for you. At the same time, it’s cheaper to walk from the hotel to the night market area and find a tuk tuk driver who can speak English and be your guide. In our case, the tuk tuk driver who drove us from the airport to the hotel offered us his tour, which we agreed to take.
Wow. What a stunning hotel! That pool is incredible. I would never want to leave. And that breakfast! I’m a sucker for a good breakfast, and it looks like they have an incredible spread.
I loooove Siem Reap so much! I didn’t get the chance to stay here but I’d love to the next time I visit. The breakfast looks too good!
Love Siem Reap! This property looks so lovely!
This looks like such a relaxing place to stay! I love that you can have afternoon tea on a swing, I definitely want to experience that now!
I didn’t even realize there was a Park Hyatt in Siem Reap! Keeping this in mind in case I find myself in Cambodia again. This looks like an incredibly beautiful hotel
I don’t know what the living cost over there but the hotel s a really an affordable luxury hotel. The architecture looks gorgeous.
