Templation by MAADS – Property Review
Reading Time: 5 minutes

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 makes for the perfect accommodation to compliment your 3 Day Angkor Wat Itinerary.

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.

  • What a great oasis. How fantastic that it is so close to Ankor Wat. That would definitely make it easy to see sunrises and sunsets at the site. The Pool Villa looks like the perfect spot for me to stay.

  • The pool suite looks amazing and so does that salmon! I love how they also use natural Cambodian products in their spa; that alone and the pics make me want to visit! Great stuff. 🙂

  • Everybody is saying it’s an oasis. Yes, it is!
    And the beers seem to be a good idea to enjoy that paradise. How do you ask for a beer in the local language?
    Birra? Cerveza? Bierre? Cerveja?
    Thank you!

  • Hi Arnav,

    The location looks fabulous and the food looks divine.

    With those down, I am good to go.

    It also seems cool how such luxe surroundings can be so close to this mighty temple complex. I recall staying in town when we visited Angkor Wat in 2012. Lots to do, but more hustle and bustle in that little complex of hotels, hostels, restaurants and bars.

    This place feels like a slice of paradise out in the middle of nowhere, but really, conveniently located to the wonder of the world not a few kilometers away.


  • I love the greeneries around the property as it gives a refreshing atmosphere around the modern facility. I’ve been to Siem Reap just a month ago and trying out the spa was one thing I hadn’t done which I wanted to do while there. I’ll keep this property in mind if ever I go back to Siem Reap.

  • I thought I was sold by the pool suite and the large main pool, but I was REALLY sold when you started talking about the brewpub on site! I am a huge beer lover and this place looks like heaven for me. The danger in staying here is I would want to stay on site all day and not go out and explore the rest of the city!

  • It is so nice that this place is just minutes away from Angkor wat. So perfect if we want to see the sunrise. Would love to stay in the Pool villa. Would love a massage especially after a day of walking in the sun.

  • Templations by MAADs is really a ancient styled luxurious stay. Love to stay in private bungalows called Oasis with attached swimming pool. Spa is my favorite as after a long travel walks, massage and other therapies would be great to do.

  • Who would have thought that such a luxurious looking place was so close to Angkor Wat? It’s the perfect base for travellers wanting to get up super early; I’ve heard the crowds get hectic later in the day! This looks ideal for bringing the family; my kids would love that huge pool in your pool suite! I haven’t tried Cambodian food but it looks great, how did you find it?

  • Now this looks like my kind of place! The suites look spacious and reasonably priced too. I’m a huge spa fan, so I’d sign up for the couples massage, and choose one of those body scrubs. Yum, those beers look refreshing, I wouldn’t say no!
