Often in Cambodia pictures exceed reality. This was not the case at Templation. In fact, it was quite the opposite. The Private Pool Suite was beyond expectations. Two structures, a living and a bedroom reunited around a tiled pool with a private garden and a day bed. Concrete architecture and muted hues of orange, red and yellow created a laid-back and cosy feel.

Ideal set-up for a romantic get-away, the king-size canopy bed led to an oversized outdoor bathroom. Completing your daily routines surrounded by nature’s smells and sounds is surprisingly relaxing.

The personnel was very attentive to our comfort and make sure to lighten natural mosquito repellent every night, ensuring us a flawless evening both out and indoor.

We retained from enjoying breakfast in the open-air restaurant to have it served in our private pool. Yes, in. The floating breakfast is an unusual and picturesque way to start the day. Products are fresh, locally sourced and beautifully arranged. Matchless.


Templation is located in Siem Reap, the second largest city of Cambodia. Lively and developed it’s a pleasure to wander around night markets and alleyways. Templation is strategically close to Angkor, ancient capital city of the Khmer Empire and the famous archeological site housing around a hundred temples and ruins.

The hotel has taxi tours and tuk-tuk services on request but we highly advise to rent a bicycle in town for 2$ a day and explore the site (classified in the UNESCO World Heritage List) at your own pace.

The small resort (around 33 accommodations) has a lot to offer : a library and office, a Spa, a fitness centre, a small local shop. Make sure to reserve a few days to unwind and take-in Templation’s amazing environment.


Every dishes on the menu deserve a try but if you had to pick one, choose the Veggie Lasagna. Hearty and incredibly tasty it’s a nice pause from Cambodians specialities.


  • Friendliness and knowledge of the staff
  • Stunning decor and vibe
  • Fruit trees of all kinds (mango, jackfruit, cashew)… it’s impossible to settle for one thing !


Not a downside per say, but we found frogs several times in the toilet bowl. Definitely a shock in the middle of the night but also a funny story to tell later on.
