Natural luxury - Templation Hotel Siem Reap

Secluded and exclusive, Templation Hotel is a retreat of nice winding paths and private villas scattered among a green park and landscaped pool, bordering the entrance to Angkor.

Southeast Asia is the most popular travel destination nowadays. It is not a coincidence, just close your eyes and imagine Thailand and the bordering country: Cambodia. Strong religion, stunning temples, interesting culture, nice people and ancient ruins.
Angkor, which is not only archaeological site but the largest religious monument in the world is in northwestern Cambodia, next to the well improved city of Siem Reap. It was the capital of the Khmer empire between the 9th and 15th century, a period which is considered the classical era of Cambodian history. It's most imposing monuments are Angkor Wat, a -today UNESCO world heritage- temple complex built in the 12th century by King Suryavarman II. 
If you ever visit this must see region, spend some time also in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia
Templation Hotel review entrance

First of all we are impressed by the work of architects Ivan Tizianel and Lisa Ros! Templation’s design revolved around recreating an echo of the waterways and reservoirs that once fed the ancient city of Angkor. The rooms, suites, pools and features were explicitly designed to harmonize with the landscape and the preserved native trees and plants. The structure is amazing, it looks like there would not be a building just the green nature.

Templation Hotel review welcome drink

We were welcomed by the staff with the tastiest welcome drink in our life. We asked for the ingredients!

Templation Hotel review bedroom suite

The quality of the mattresses, pillows and all the used materials are representing good quality. We slept very good in maximal comfort. The air conditioning could be strong but it can be also turned off. We did not used at all, the room had a pleasant temperature without that, too.

The open-roof bathroom was definitely our favorite here! It is well minimal-designed and ideal to relax in the huge bathtub looking at the stars.

Here is a picture that shows you that we got something really special here: soap handmade by local people with fine design and flavor.

Decorated in a contemporary chic, all of the studios have a private terrace with a view over the main pool. Each has a uniquely designed interior with an emphasis on privacy. There are also villas with own living room and all of them are available with a private pool! Stunning.

The pool is very big, ideal for swimming or also playing if you travel with family.

And the breakfast is simply heavenly and good start for a whole day tour in Angkor! This is for one person.

Fresh as it has to be.

Fine details again: the salt shaker set harmonize with the soap&shampoo set in the bathroom. The flower is fresh in the glass.

After a long bike tour we arrived home to this view and we tried the fresh lime juice right away.

Should you need something for work (but don't do it in Angkor, relax please) than all office facilities are available upon request, also translation service, and best of the best: mobile phone SIMs and pre-paid cards.
Templation Hotel is a truly unique and "different from the usual" place with soul inside.
We spent a special and memorable time here. We definitely want to go back if we will visit that region again.
