Templation by MAADS is literally a sprawling Oasis barely 4 KM away from the mighty Angkor Wat, in the city of Siem Reap in Cambodia, and I consider myself lucky to have experienced the aura of this place in person.
Templation by MAADS – Location
The location of Templation is one of the biggest USP, as it is conveniently located 3 KM from the Angkor Ticketing Complex in one direction and the mighty Angkor Wat, just 4 KM, in the other direction, which can be reached in as less as 5 minutes.
The fact that Angkor Wat can be reached in a matter of 5 minutes, is like a blessing in disguise specially when you intend to witness a sunrise at Angkor Wat.
As a matter of fact, within a span of 5 minutes you can also each the National Museum or the City Centre. The transit time to Siem Reap International Airport, is not more than 20-25 minutes.

With 33 suites and villas spread out throughout the property, one can choose to stay in either of the three : The Junior Suite, The Pool Suite and The Pool Villas.

Open to the garden and the main pool, the restaurant dishes out some really tasty meals throughout the day. The breakfast is one of the most important meals, and the experienced cooks at the Templation, will make sure that the breakfast will be one of the tastiest meals during the day.

Amidst fountains and ponds, the Templation spa is a source of relaxation and regeneration after a day of temple exploration and wandering in the heat. Massages and treatments have been specially designed for Templation by Bodia, a line of spa products using exclusively natural and local resources with an outstanding repute in Cambodia . The well qualified and experienced therapists at the Spa, will ensure that you have a relaxing time, while getting pampered with delicate strokes of their hands with soft or medium pressure.
Did I forget to mention, that you can have some glasses of premium craft beer as well while at Templations! The Siem Reap Brew Pub, which is located just 10 minutes away, manufactures 6 variations of Craft Beer, with alcohol content ranging from 4% to as much as 6%. A visit to this microbrewery (The only one in Siem Reap) is definitely a must do, and the concierge staff will gladly help you with a private guided tour of the micro brewery.
In short, a stay at the Templation in Siem Reap, will compliment not only your Angkor Wat exploration, but their concierge services will suggest you the best you can do in Siem Reap in the time span you have.
