New Park Hyatt Siem Reap Offering 1,500 Bonus Points On Eligible Stays

Last year when I visited Southeast Asia, one of my favorite stops on the itinerary was Siem Reap in Cambodia, where I stayed at Le Meridien Angkor and spent my days exploring the sprawling complex of Angkor Wat and the surrounding countryside. While I was there, I also visited the most famous hotel in town, the colonial Hotel de la Paix Angkor, for dinner, though it was later taken over by Hyatt and closed in June 2012 for renovation.

The Park Hyatt Siem Reap is offering a 1,500-point opening bonus.

The hotel has since reopened as the Park Hyatt Siem Reap and to celebrate the opening, it is offering Hyatt Gold Passport members 1,500 bonus points on eligible stays now through November 30, 2013. To qualify for the bonus, your stay must be paid – so no award nights – and you must book directly through Hyatt using the offer code GP675. Only one Gold Passport member per reservation can earn the bonus.

Standard rooms start at nearly 400 square feet.

I thought the old hotel was beautiful, but it looks like Hyatt did a gorgeous job renovating it – they hired Bangkok-based interior designer Bill Bensley for the job, and it’s the first Hyatt property in Cambodia. The hotel has just 108 rooms and suites and is right in the heart of town, just a 15-minute drive from the Angkor Archaeological Park.

Rooms start at 35 square meters (about 370 square feet) and are decorated with a contemporary take on traditional Khmer art, as well as luxury touches like hardwood floors, Italian marble bathrooms with spa tubs and rainfall showers, 40-inch plasma TV’s with cable and satellite as well as DVD players, wall-mounted media hubs, high-speed internet, Nespresso coffee machines and more.

New luxury touches include all-marble baths with dual vanities.

The hotel grounds also feature a six-room spa that partners with Aromatherapy products, a lap pool and a free-form pool and lush gardens.

The hotel’s main restaurant is the Dining Room, with a menu of French-Indochine-inspired dishes, while the Living Room is more of a bar lounge with private tables between the colonnades facing out on the gardens. For something quick and casual, the hotel also offers the Glasshouse Deli & Patisserie for sandwiches, pizzas and ice cream among other bites.

The free-form pool is part indoor and part outdoor, and looks gorgeous.

All in all, it looks like a great new property, and if I make it back to Cambodia anytime soon (maybe a quick trip in the fall before this promo ends!) I would definitely like to book a stay here. Room rates in September start at $235 a night, and there is a ton of award availability September-November – pretty much every night I looked – so you can also snag a room for just 15,000 Gold Passport points per night since this is a Category 4 property. That’s just about 1.57 cents per points, so as long as rates are this low, I would probably just pay for my room, but they start to go up in October and November (closer to the $300 mark), so using your points might make more sense then.

    Just stayed at the Park Hyatt Siem Reap from 8/22-26. Lovely hotel and great service. Also, excellent food in the restaurant.

    There’s probably so much award availability because spending this kind of money in Siem Reap (or anywhere in Southeast Asia outside of Singapore) seems kind of ridiculous. I’m sure this hotel is wonderful, but there are tons of locally-owned, non-Western hotels in Siem Reap that are probably just as nice at a fraction of the cost. I’m not really sure why anyone would spend this kind of money to stay here, it really boggles the mind.

    If you must stay in a Western hotel, however, the bonus points are definitely a great deal.

    Completely agree, was there in Dec. last year and 4 nights at a non-western hotel was $102. Had 2 beds, free breakfast, A/C Jacuzzi tub, cable. You don’t spend much time there anyways, so if paying, very reasonable location and rates.

    “Award Availability” really isn’t a thing though… Hyatt allows you to book with points as long as there’s a standard room available.

    We stayed there for 3 days immediately after it opened in beginning of August 2013 using points. The entire experience was really lovely. The staff was hands-down the most friendly and helpful that I have ever experienced at a hotel. We did not eat dinner there, but we had food and drinks by the pool or in the courtyard several times- those prices were very reasonable (drinks were similar in price to an average American restaurant or upscale Siem Reap restaurant, and were AMAZING. I have dreams about the passion fruit mojito). Pool is beautiful. Also, location is great- it’s walking distance to restaurants, markets, everything a tourist would want to do in town.

    Think smaller Park Hyatt Vendome + more warmth and personal attention.
