The Sothea, a 39 all-suite estate in Siem Reap, has become Preferred Boutique’s first member in Cambodia. Preferred Boutique comprises four categories - Classic, Design, Adventure and Resort, the Sothea is part of the Resort category.

The Sothea is a romantic and relaxing hideaway in the heart of Siem Reap, beside the Cambodian Cultural Village and 15 minutes from the Angkor temple compound. Nestled amidst tranquil gardens and softly flowing waterways, it is a contemporary hotel with hints of Khmer artisanship infused in the architecture and interior design. Opened on Valentine's Day on February 14 by a respected local entrepreneur, it was built as a tribute to his wife, Madam Sothea for her 50th birthday.

Luxurious in design and service, The Sothea harmoniously blends water features, where water symbolizes the woman; and manicured landscaping, where the soil symbolizes the man, throughout the resort.

The Sothea is divided into two zones: Recreation Zone which houses the spa and restaurants and the Rest Zone where the suites are exclusively tucked away. There are two restaurants and a cigar and wine bar offering traditional Khmer cuisine as well as international fare. Recreational facilities include an outdoor salt swimming pool and a spa offering Khmer massage and a variety of beauty treatments.

All the suites offer either a balcony overlooking the courtyard pool or a terrace by the landscaped pond. Each guest can indulge in full butler service where a dedicated butler will be assigned from arrival at the airport, to unpacking, organizing tours and meals, to departure. In addition, there is also a host of complimentary services such as wireless Internet access, breakfast that can be packed in a picnic box, daily replenished mini-bar, laundry service, and a library stocked with movies and books.

Mark Simmons, Managing Director - Asia, Preferred Hotel Group, said, "The Sothea will cater to upscale leisure travelers in search of a unique cultural experience. Siem Reap is an increasingly important destination for Preferred Hotel Group as we can now offer great options to our global leisure, corporate and MICE partners with The Sothea and Angkor Palace Resort & Spa, a member of Summit Hotels & Resorts™, in one city."

Sarah Moya is General Manager of The Sothea.
