Hyatt have announced that they have opened a new property in Siem Reap in Cambodia.The property used to be called the ‘Hotel De La Paix’ but has undergone a 14 month refurbishment.
The property is 12km’s away from the airport – a $50 ride in a hotel provided limo but only $7 by Tuk Tuk!
The Angkor Wat UNESCO world heritage site is only 10km, or 15 miles away by car.
The property, with only 108 rooms, has a spa, two pools and wired/wireless internet. There are 13 suites of which 4 feature private plunge pools. There is an onsite restaurant for dinner and a lounge for afternoon tea or cocktails.
Room rates (for a random date in September) varied from $218/$276 (advance purchase) to $290/$370 (Business Room). At 15,000 Gold Passport points per night, this property seems a good use of them. There are few pictures of the property on the web site, but below is a shot of one of the rooms.
