Siem Reap, Cambodia
Jaya House River Park is a hidden gem peacefully set alongside the Siem Reap River, and surrounded by lush palm trees, yet only a short tuk-tuk ride from the hustle and bustle of town and the temples of Angkor Wat. This boutique hotel has only 36 rooms, all with either a balcony or direct garden access, and the design is contemporary with sleek wooden panels and monochrome colouring. Rooms can be connected making it a good spot for families, and for those looking for the next level of tranquillity, there is the option to upgrade to a junior pool suite, with its own private plunge pool.
You will be spoilt for choice with two swimming pools, and the spa promises to relax and restore with a selection of ancient Khmer and traditional south-east Asian treatments. Dine in the vegan friendly Trorkuon restaurant serving traditional Khmer cuisine as well as some Western classics.
