Hotel de la Paix, Siem Reap
IMPORTANT NOTE: The award-winning Hôtel de la Paix will be closing in May 2012 for a period of approximately 4 months. Extensive renovations will make this superb hotel even more impressive! During this period we will offer alternative accommodation in Siem Reap.
Hôtel de la Paix is Siem Reap´s most stylish contemporary hotel fusing ancient Khmer influences with modern art deco design and offering guests an outstanding level of service, luxury and world class dining and spa facilities.
It enjoys a prime location as the most central of all the five star hotels in Siem Reap, just footsteps from the colourful markets and the vibrant night life of the bustling community - yet only a short ten minute drive from the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat.
World Discovery prices are based on Deluxe Guestrooms, which are of two types; Urbanview and Gardenview.

Nestled in The Passage between the bars and cafes of the thriving old market area, AHA has joined forces with the stylish McDermott Gallery and the innovative One Hotel Collection to offer an eclectic blend of cuisine, art and contemporary space in what has become the coolest zone in town.
"Working with Asma, a local Khmer French design team the hotel created AHA, a free flowing space featuring a 30 metre wooden wave wall, ´floating´ show kitchen and designer wine display. AHA showcases the latest in architectural design and is more reminiscent of dining experiences in Bangkok, Sydney or other international hotspots."
Inspired by the success of de la Paix´ signature restaurant, Meric, the hotel's Executive Chef has shaped an array of ´small plates´ - taste sensations which are essentially Khmer, but also beyond. Bites include Green Mango and Dried Snake Salad, a favourite with adventurous visitors, to the more international Grilled Prawn and Radicchio with Duck Confit. For something sweet, savour the finale which includes Honeycomb Icecream, Jasmine Rice with Coconut Sorbet or delectable Sambucca Jelly.
