SOTHEA Boutique Resort in Siem Reap will be reborn as Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa later this year, after Minor Hotel Group (MHG) acquired majority ownership of the property.
Located just 10 minutes from Siem Reap International Airport and close to Angkor Wat, the 39-suite boutique resort is housed within an estate inspired by grand Khmer villas, with one restaurant offering modern interpretations of native Khmer recipes and another providing al fresco dining within a frangipani tree-lined courtyard.
Guests can also make use of its spa facility, which comes with five spa and massage suites and a terrazzo-tiled pool with Jacuzzi jets.
The launch of Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa heralds MHG’s debut in Cambodia.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO, MHG, commented: “It’s an exciting time for Anantara right now – this addition strengthens the brand’s position in South-east Asia, plus we have our first Anantara opening in Dubai in a few days and also the first Anantara in Africa to come before the end of the year.”
The hotel group last week announced plans for its third Avani resort to be located in Quy Nhon, Vietnam (TTG Asia e-Daily, September 11, 2013), and has mapped out further expansion plans for Asia, Africa and the Middle East (TTG Asia e-Daily, September 6, 2013).
