Park Hyatt Siem Reap

Park Hyatt Siem Reap

Park Hyatt Siem Reap is a five-star luxury hotel located in the city of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Siem Reap is the main gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Angkor, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia. Park Hyatt Siem Reap is centrally located near Siem Reap's shopping and nightlife spots.

Park Hyatt Siem Reap

Park Hyatt Siem Reap opened in 2013, making it the second Park Hyatt property to open in South East Asia after Park Hyatt Saigon (2005). The property was designed by the multi-awarded interior designer, Bill Bensley, where he combined elements of Art Deco and Khmer architecture.

Hotel Lobby | Park Hyatt Siem Reap

Entering the hotel lobby, I was welcomed by the friendly smile of the hotel's concierge who immediately assisted me with my luggage. As I walked in, my eyes were drawn to a towering sculpture of an Apsara dancer holding a bouquet of fresh lotus flowers. I love how the sofas and the decor seamlessly blended with the Art Deco features of the interior.

For a comfortable check-in experience, I was led to The Living Room and was immediately served with a refreshing welcome drink and cold towel. I handed my passport to the receptionist and it didn't take long for her to process my registration. The concierge politely waited for me to finish my welcome drink before I was assisted to my room.

The World of Hyatt loyalty program is one of the top favorites among leisure and business travelers because of its consistent recognition of elite membership status. One of the highlights of being a loyal World of Hyatt member is the benefit of having complimentary room upgrades every time you stay in a Park Hyatt. This benefit is subject to room availability upon check-in.

Membership Status Room Upgrade Benefit

However, if the original room category booked is not available during standard check-in time, the hotel may, in its own discretion, upgrade you to the next available room category. This is treated on a case per case basis.
Discoverist Preferred Room - Discoverists will be offered a preferred room at the time of check-in. Preferred rooms are within the same room category originally booked by the guests, but with more desirable features such as higher floor location, corner room location, or a more appealing view. Discoverists, on the other hand, are not qualified for a complimentary upgrade to a higher room category.

Airport Transfer

  • I recommend that you book your airport transfer via Klook. If you are traveling alone or as a couple, you can book the Private Tuk-Tuk Transfers which costs $US5.00 per way. For bigger groups, you can book the Private Airport Transfer (SUV) which costs $US12.00 (daytime service) or up to $US18 (nighttime service) per way. Just specify your date and time of arrival and your driver will be waiting for you at the arrival area holding a sign with our name on it. From the airport, you will be dropped off to your hotel in downtown Siem Reap.
  • Going back to the airport, you can also book your transfer via Klook. The driver will pick you up at your hotel on your specified time and will drop you off at the departure area of the airport


Moving Around

  • The most common and convenient way to get around Siem Reap is to get a Tuk-Tuk. They don't have meters, so rates should be negotiated first with the driver before you board. The hotel concierge should be able to help you get a tuk-tuk. Please remember that most tuk-tuk payments in Siem Reap are made in US dollars.
  • There is currently no Grab ride-hailing service in Siem Reap.
