Built upon a pocket of an untouched natural landscape, Templation Hotel is heavily inspired by the idea of being an oasis—perfect for a quick escape from your busy lifestyle. Hidden in a secluded corner of Angkor, the winding paths leading the way to the hotel is peppered with private villas and botanical gardens, giving off a sense of adventure.
Hidden in a secluded corner of Angkor
Led by architects Ivan Tizianel and Lisa Ros from ASMA, the Templation’s design is based on the reservoirs and waterways that once ran through the ancient city of Angkor, and pays respects on the local ecosystem by preserving the native trees and plants in the area. It brings guests a little closer to nature, as the running theme of the hotel features lush tropical flora that complements the installed waterworks. Templation’s rooms and overall ambiance is more suited for a romantic getaway.
What room should we get?
The hotel offers both regular rooms and deluxe suites that are styled with a simple sensibility, yet with a touch of class. You can also opt for a privacy pool suite, which as the name suggests, comes with a large private pool. These suites also feature bathrooms with a skylight and can comfortably house up to four guests. Though primarily designed for couples, there are also family rooms available.
Where do we eat?
Templation serves a free buffet breakfast filled with freshly cooked options, and meals are also available in-house. However, if you want to eat outside, there are at least a dozen restaurants within a kilometer from the hotel. Top recommendations include the New Hope Cambodia, Mie Cafe, and La Couleur Du The.
What else should we check out?
R&R treatments are available at the spa, and you can just drop by for a quick massage after a long day of touring Siem Reap. There’s also a bar where you can grab a couple of drinks with your date, and a fitness center to help you stay in shape. The business center with internet access is perfect for whenever you need to get back to reality and check on work for a bit.
If you ever need a peaceful place to reflect and de-stress, the Templation Hotel might just be for you! Whether you’re traveling alone or with your special someone, staying here for a holiday break is always a great idea.
