Located a short ride from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap city center, Siem Reap International Airport and the splendid temples of Angkor Wat, Anjali by Syphon is a peaceful upscale retreat in Siem Reap. Surrounded by tropical hanging gardens and lavish gardens filled with flowers, the resort provides an intimate atmosphere in which to relax. A 10-minute tuk tuk ride into town (the resort offers free downtown tuk tuk service), it sits on an unsurfaced road giving the illusion that it is in the middle of nowhere.
Combining cutting-edge design with peaceful design shaped by its surroundings and local culture, its sustainable approach (they pride themselves on being a plastic-free resort) is seen throughout. The contemporary resort provides a quiet and private experience starting with guests entering along a pathway covered in greenery emulating a small jungle. The sense of Zen comes across with its rattan leaf sculptures and furniture throughout which is made in Cambodia.
