Fodor's Expert Review Hotel de La Paix
Sivutha Blvd., Siem Reap, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
This much-hyped addition to the city offers boutique rooms in black and white. The hotel's internationally acclaimed design has incorporated all the amenities one would expect of a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World: spa suites with in-room massage facilities, terrazzo soaking tubs, preprogrammed iPods, DVD players, and a lot more. Unfortunately, the hotel is on dusty, noisy Sivutha Boulevard, with construction in all directions—however, the disorder outside might accentuate the feeling of exclusive luxury within. Here you can sip a drink poolside or gaze out the windows of your swanky room, thankful you're not parching in the heat like the laundry hung on the neighbors' lines.
