Reading Time: 5 minutesTemplation 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. In case you you want to do some offbeat travelling and venture beyond Angkor Wat, you might want to check this out.
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.
Templation by MAADS – The Stay
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.
The Junior Suite
Spread over an area of 40 sq. m, the large bedroom opens to a terrace surrounded by trees and flowers, and the sprawling and picturesque main swimming pool in the background. The bathroom, open to the sky, is equipped with a shower and a super-sized bath tub, making it your own little private spa. A night stay for 2 will cost you somewhere around 148 USD.
The Pool Suite
This sprawling 70 sq. m compound, transports you to a different world all together. The moment you step in, two spacious, separate structures (bedroom and living), with picture windows leading to the spacious terrace, an open pavilion and the large (4x7m) private pool, welcome you with open arms. The pool is slate-tiled and equipped with jet streams. The bathroom is open to the sky, with a rain shower and tub. Both the living room and the bedroom have attached bathrooms.
A night in this private oasis will cost you somewhere around 258 USD.
The Pool Villa
The luminous yet secluded structure spread over an area of 104 sq. m, offers two separate king sized bedrooms, a large living room and a spectacular open-to-the-sky bathroom. Surrounded by bushes and trees, the large (4x7m) and slate-tiled private pool, equipped with jet streams, makes this compound perfect for families.
A night in this sprawling Villa will cost you somewhere around 358 USD.

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. One can choose from four sets, Local, Asian, Continental and American, with several side dishes to spoil you for choices.

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.
