Threaded around the new Marriot International  hotel in Siem Reap are ancient ruins of an epic kingdom. The Courtyard hotel is modern and chic with subtle nods to the heritage and enchanting nature of the city it rests in.

The first of two  Marriot International hotels to be opened in Cambodia, Courtyard is designed with personal and professional passions in mind. The 233 contemporary rooms are designed to be sleek with modern furniture, bathrooms with separate walk in shower, flat screen televisions and private balconies allowing guests to bask in the glorious cityscapes.

All day dining is available at Lok Lak, offering a fusion of modern cuisine and Khmer flavours showing visitors  more of rich Siem Reap culture.  A rooftop bar boasts yet another opportunity to display the city whilst offering a range of cocktails and small plate food. Courtyard features a fully equipped fitness centre, Kids Club, and recreation room. A decadent spa is waiting to provide a haven of relaxation as well as a cleansing outdoor saltwater pool. The hotel’s amenities, technology, meeting rooms and spaces make it an ideal destination for business events, meetings and celebrations.

For those on a seductive get away, the hotel is not far from the gateway of UNESCO heritage site of Angkor Wat. After a short walk, guests will find themselves in an expressive, extensive collection of bars, cocktail lounges and clubs. An 18 hole golf course is also nearby.

Ashley Lai, General Manager of Courtyard is ready to provide quests with an ultimate experience. “Through our décor and innovative amenities, we are able to provide our guests with tranquility and comfort while visiting Siem Reap on a meaningful journey of exploration,” Ms Lai said. “Our team looks forward to welcoming guests from all over the globe to experience the Cambodian hospitality in unparalleled surroundings.”
