A discrete entrance reveals one of the most beautiful traditional Angkor houses. Incorporating Khmer style aesthetics with a touch of modern design, the resort comprises two villas, an apartment and 5 junior suites, overlooking a swimming pool and a luxuriant tropical garden.

Away from the big hotels, a haven of peace and a model of taste, the Boutique-hotel Samar Villas & Spa Resort makes for an exceptional vacation. It is an oasis of serenity, offering highly personalised service.  Subtle rather than ostentatious, the style and decor reveal pure lines and harmonious soft colours using natural materials. The elegant furniture and fabrics come from local sources, thereby helping to maintain the fragile balance of the regional economy.
Very close to the site of Angkor, our luxurious Resort provides an ideal base for those who wish to discover the magic of the temples in the elegance and comfort of a high-class family-run establishment.   It is possible to “privatize”, or have the exclusive use of, a part or all of the modular infrastructure of SAMAR to guarantee intimacy and privacy for couples, groups of friends or families; to celebrate your marriage or anniversaries; or to arrange your special personal, business or incentive events in Cambodia.
For your sight-seeing trips, our tailor made package tours, accompanied by highly qualified guides, guarantee you a unique and memorable visit.

Our Library, which contains a comprehensive range of literature and documentation pertaining to all the archaeological sites of Angkor, is at your disposal to ensure that you do not miss any of the detail of your temple exploration or affording you the opportunity to increase your knowledge.

There are many activities around the hotel or in Siem Reap (3 golf courses, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, art galleries...). Your trips into the city will be provided by complimentary tuk – tuk.

On your return from the temples, a warm welcome awaits you from your SAMAR family.   Exclusive to Cambodia, the luxury SAMAR Villas and Spa Resort has developed the concept of hospitality into a fine art, along the lines of Khowan principles.

The Barber’s Chair is a daily luxury offered to gentlemen, with the pleasure of an old-fashioned shave, while ladies are offered one facial treatment during their stay.  Reflexology treatments, traditional massages and other treatments are on offer in the Spa to promote relaxation of both body and mind.

On the gastronomical side, our « new Indochina Cuisine with a French touch » is served at the poolside or on your terrace – the choice is yours.  Our unusual concept of ephemeral dining is also available. The innovative and elaborate cuisine inspired by our chef, Thorn Vannak (who trained at the Raffles Grand Hotel of Angkor), is accompanied by an inspired wine list.

Thorn Vannak will also be your mentor at the « Atelier des Sens », where cookery classes and tastings are organised in the kitchens of the hotel, in a convivial atmosphere conducive to discovering the tastes of Asia.

Opposite the SAMAR, the Lounge Bar, the “Fou-Nan” serves tapas and dishes in the relaxing environment of a rich tropical garden, while our restaurant in the centre of Siem Riep, “L’Escale des Arts et des Sens”, proudly presents a menu by Didier Corlou, one of Asia’s finest chefs.  A wide choice of dining possibilities combining simplicity with gastronomy.
