Anantara Angkor Resort Unveils Two Presidential Suites
Following an extensive renovation, the 39-key boutique resort is delighted to unveil Siem Reap’s plushest presidential suites, the Henri Mouhot and Anantara Explorer Suites. The two-bedroom, 235 square metres Henri Mouhot Suite pays tribute to the French naturalist and explorer who alerted the West to the ruins of Angkor, capital of the ancient Khmer civilisation of Cambodia, in 1860. The suite accommodates up to six guests. The one-bedroom Anantara Explorer Suite offers 178 square metres of living space inspired by another intrepid explorer, Jim Thompson, and founder of the world renowned Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company. The suite accommodates up to three guests.
Meticulously designed, the two new suites are reminiscent of a Khmer summer home and are the epitome of richness and old world sophistication with imported Thai silk and fabrics overflowing throughout, draping the furniture in bold colours and lustrous appeal. For the award winning Thai designers Abacus Design, the objective was to surprise and delight whilst providing convenient functions with the comfort of home.
In the Henri Mouhot Suite, a beautiful sandstone relief reflects the nearby ruins of Angkor amidst a colonial backdrop of tongue and groove ceilings, while wall panelling with a rectangular motive that is reminiscent of this distinctive feature in the Jim Thompson House in Bangkok separates the master bedroom and lounge in the Anantara Explorer Suite. In both suites bold colours and luxurious silk and fabrics from the coveted Jim Thompson’s Leo De Janeiro collection unfold for luxurious eye catching beauty. Each suite’s enclosed lush tropical garden complete with plunge pool, oversized double sun lounge bed and dining table offers a luxurious welcome respite after an adventurous day of exploring one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia, whether savouring a decadent Champagne high tea or al fresco dining on progressive Khmer cuisine under the stars.
Guests residing in either of the Henri Mouhot and Anantara Explorer Suites additionally enjoy complimentary laundry service; in-suite spa treatments; and a daily hour long treatment at Anantara Spa.
