The newly opened Alison Angkor Boutique Villa and Resort in Siem Reap, the latest addition to AIC, Cambodia’s leading hotel and resort management company, was named after the owner’s daughter.
Mr Dana Sreng, born in Cambodia but educated in Adelaide with a science degree from Adelaide University, now spends his time between the two countries.
The imposing swimming pool at the entrance to the hotel surrounded by 12 luxury rooms and suites reminded Dana of his house in Adelaide and have proven to be a popular feature of the hotel.
Opened in March this year, the Alison is the first hotel under the AIC+Plus brand where the company consults to the owners in its launch phase. A veteran of the telecoms industry, Dana is capitalising on Cambodia’s 22 per cent annual tourism growth and strong appeal for the ‘Kingdom of Wonder’.
“I have always been interested in owning a boutique hotel in Cambodia,” says the smiling Dana. “When the Alison came up I jumped at the opportunity. Growing up in Adelaide gave me a real appreciation of what Australians want during their travels.”
The centrally located hotel is an easy two-minute walk to the banks of the Siem Reap River and a short Remarque (Tuk Tuk) ride to the internationally popular eating and hospitality mecca of Pub Street and the Old Markets where modest prices and haggling prevail for the shopper looking for handicrafts, clothing and fresh food.
The historic wonders of the cradle of Khmer culture, Angkor Wat, is 6.5 km away and the newly renovated international airport 8 km.
Each room and suite at the Alison features strikingly stylish décor that captures the traditions of contemporary Khmer architecture and landscaping. Each room has a flat-screen satellite/cable TV, computer, iPad and minibar. Service is personal, warm and friendly.
