The resort’s 2,200 sqm ballroom and multiple individual meeting rooms add to the resort’s uniqueness along with the Fitness Plus & Jasmine Spa offers the largest wellbeing facility in Siem Reap.

60 Road in Siem Reap also represents why we travel, walking distance from the resort’s lobby is the Kuong Yu market offering a 100% evening Cambodian style. It’s buzzing every single night. A long road lined with street food sellers, a shopper’s paradise for children’s clothing & shoes and even small fun fair with rides and slides.

Ms Chanthy Sok, Group Director of Sales & Marketing at Sokha Hotels, said, " People from all around the world come specifically to visit Angkor as it contains the magnificent reminisce of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire reflecting the splendor of the cities that once were. A number of amazing artistic masterpieces , namely Bayon, Ta Prom, Banteay Srei and the majestic splendor of Angkor Wat presenting an unusual combination of mythological, historical and cultural significance from as early at the 9th Century.
