Swathed in ancient Angkor style, this luxury retreat is packed into a central walled compound on the river. The guest rooms are delightfully spacious, with subtle mixes of hardwoods, bright walls and bedspreads, jewel-tone cushions, and classic Khmer art. The gardens, statues, and open-air Martini Lounge bar are equally attractive. The restaurants, which serve an inventive mix of Asian and western dishes, are considered among the town's best, if priciest, options.
