The Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa is a quiet and refined boutique hotel built in 1930s style with local Khmer touches. The hotel has been designed to be in total harmony with its natural surroundings. Enchantingly situated in the heart of Siem Reap, opposite the Royal Gardens, most of the rooms have a balcony facing the swimming pool that is framed by a tropical garden with open-air salas for traditional massage, jacuzzi and spa.
Pandaw operates 16 luxury ships that explore the great rivers of south-east Asia. These expeditions offer a real adventure experience, while at the same time travellers can enjoy fine dining, superb cocktails and choice wines, with extraordinary levels of service. These river expeditions are unlike ocean-going cruises, with no formal dress code for dinner or ‘captain’s table’. The atmosphere on board is friendly and informal, more like a party on a private yacht than a cruise ship.
