KHMER RISING. Paying tribute to Khmer tradition and culture is Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa (National Road no. 6, Khum Svay Dangkom, Siem Reap; +855 63 966 788; anantara.com) in Cambodia.
From a bird’s eye view, the resort resembles the eighth wonder of the world, famously known as Angkor Wat. The ground level is reminiscent of a grand Khmer villa with a courtyard pool inspired by an ancient royal bathing pool. Comprises merely 39 guest rooms exquisitely designed in a contemporary Cambodian style, the resort incorporates the use of handcrafted furniture, textiles and artwork in every corner. To extensively explore the local culture, a five-minute walk to nearby museums and eleven distinctive villages of the Cambodian Cultural Village is highly recommended.
