Located in a secluded village district of Siem Reap, it is one of the closest hotels to the majestic temple of Angkor Wat. Set in a contemporary villa built in the colonial-era style, it combines colonial chic in a contemporary boutique. There are 11 guest rooms set across an attractive cluster of buildings in this quiet retreat.

The decoration is very much in keeping with the other popular properties in the family, including HanumanAlaya Villa and HanumanAlaya Boutique Residence, the latter currently undergoing a major renovation and expansion.

New Opening Hours at the Temples of Angkor

There has been some confusion as to the implementation of new opening hours at the Temples of Angkor, due to come into effect on 1 January 2016. Hanuman has been in touch with the team at the top to clarify the situation.

Angkor Wat will be open from 5.00am to 5.30pm, although the upper level of Bakan Sanctuary will only open from 7.30am.

Sra Srang will be open from 5.00am to 5.30pm.

Pre Rup will be open from 5.00am to 7.00pm.

Phnom Bakheng will be open from 5.00am to 7.00pm.

All others temples will be open from 7.30am to 5.30pm.

So in summary, Angkor Wat, Phnom Bakheng, Pre Rup and Sra Srang are open for sunrise. Phnom Bakheng and Pre Rup are open for sunset.

However, it is unlikely there will be any restrictions on watching sunset at Sra Srang or Western Baray for example.

There are plans in the works to offer some sort of premium access to key temples at dawn such as Bayon and Ta Prohm.

Aqua Mekong Set for Maiden Voyage in 2014

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Aqua Mekong, the latest vessel from Aqua Expeditions, is set to launch on the Mekong River in August 2014. Check out this video on the inspiration behind expanding from the Amazon to the Mekong.



CEO Francesco Galli Zugaro dropped into the Hanuman offices earlier this week to discuss a pioneering approach to promotional videos. The Aqua Mekong looks set to take Mekong cruising to a whole new level. With just 20 cabins, this will be the most exclusive cruise boat on the Mekong River.

Aqua originally started offering luxurious, exploratory cruises on the Peruvian Amazon, from the jungle city of Iquitos to the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve which has proved to be very successful and we are excited to see them expanding into Vietnam and Cambodia. It’s very much aimed at discerning clients who want a luxurious experience whilst discovering the Mekong in depth. They offer a range of itineraries both upstream and downstream from 3 to 7 days.

They have also got Michelin-starred chef David Thompson on board, and he’s been appointed executive chef for the Aqua. He is renowned for his Thai, Khmer and Vietnamese cuisine and runs the famous Nahm restaurant at the Metropolitan Hotel in Bangkok.

We have negotiated the best possible rates with them. Contact our Sales Team for more on the Aqua Mekong.
