La Residence d’Angkor
by: Zachary Lynd
To get inspired.
Me and my love.
Boating through the Cambodian countryside.
A vaulted, breezy martini bar is something to come home to.
Floor to ceiling windows with thick canvas shades gives you the best of both worlds.
I love interesting doors, locks, bells, etc. in a world full of key cards and uniformity.
Nicely understated but culturally expressive.
The jungle atmosphere is perfectly done from afar and up-close.
The lines of sight feel incredibly intimate here, even as you're walking through the open center.
I'd speak to the saltwater pool and its handmade tiles here, but I'm too distracted to try.
Enjoying their version of "bar snacks."
Another detail that got it right.
This is a stage set for tranquility.
Highs + Lows
Lush jungle flora, lily ponds, stone carvings and local hardwood.

Limited mini bar.
Small hanging closet.

The hotel was built by a businessman who is widely respected in the local community, as a fitting tribute to his wife. With lady Sothea in mind, the whole property has been created to showcase natural beauty.
24 hour outdoor saltwater pool and fully equipped fitness center.
Two restaurants on property.
Elevated open-air Martini Lounge.
Not ideal, but not a problem.
