Treeline Urban Resort, Siem Reap’s first luxury art and design hotel, is holding its inaugural art exhibition from 26 January to 31 March 2019. The event features several of Cambodia’s most accomplished artists.

Held at Treeline Urban Resort, the exhibition – Face Forward – is showcasing curated, contemporary pieces by artists such as Pich Sopheap and Thang Sothea. Each of the featured artists is addressing the past through their practice of contemporary art; highlighting questions regarding consumption and production via a lens that combines the everyday elements of nature, space and sound. Through the art exhibition, the first of an ongoing series, Treeline is showing travellers why it is the perfect getaway for distinguished art lovers. It is the only one of its kind in Siem Reap to boast a private collection from some of the country’s most celebrated artists.

Situated on the riverfront of Siem Reap’s vibrant and emerging arts quarter, Treeline Urban Resort offers a transformative travel experience. Opened in November 2018, the resort was founded and built by the pioneering architect and visionary, Hok Kang, who envisioned it as the epitome of bespoke luxury for design aficionados.

Art and design lie at the core of Treeline Urban Resort, beginning with the resort’s light-filled lobby that is furnished with natural materials. Here, guests can admire the sky-high installation by Pich Sopheap, one of Cambodia’s most acclaimed artists, and through its woven bamboo, the resort’s flowering open-air courtyard.

"Treeline is indeed a resort like no other; it masterfully blends Cambodian old-world charm with the contemporary vibrancy of our nation’s emerging arts scene"

“Treeline is indeed a resort like no other; it masterfully blends Cambodian old-world charm with the contemporary vibrancy of our nation’s emerging arts scene,” said artist Pich Sopheap. “Working with Treeline to create a haven of art has been an exciting experience, and I’m looking forward to collaborating with them to share our artworks with Cambodians and international travellers alike.”

Those looking for an immersive experience can choose from one of Treeline’s thoughtfully-crafted 48 rooms; designed to an impeccable standard with organic and minimalist aesthetics. The interior design combines sustainably-sourced native timber and stone features with handmade soft furnishings to emanate serene, laid-back luxury. Select suites have views over the lush courtyard, swimming pool, or the river.

Guests can also choose to unwind by the private rooftop saltwater infinity pool that overlooks the Siem Reap river, the only one to do so in the city.

At Suri, the hotel’s tranquil spa, guests can rejuvenate in the healing hands of trained local therapists. Whether you choose traditional Khmer massage or a Suri natural facial, all rejuvenating treatments use products that are hand-blended on site with the finest local ingredients from the Siem Reap region using traditional techniques.


The resort includes four modern eateries: Seed, the in-house restaurant, serves an ‘East-meets-West’ breakfast menu whereas the exclusive Canopy Bar offers an international bitings menu and its signature cocktails list. Guests can also access the Brown Coffee café and Hok Noodle Bar & Grill – featuring a regional menu designed by celebrity chef Patricia Yeo.

“Whether it’s our rooms, amenities, food or the feel of our overall design, we envisioned Treeline as a place that would leave a distinctive and long-lasting impression on our guests,” said Joni Aker, General Manager of Treeline Urban Resort. “We want to be a different kind of resort that meets our guests’ exacting demands whilst creating exceptional experiences that you can only get by melding old-world and contemporary charms. Treeline Urban Resort is your home away from home, a place to connect with nature and relax, with heart-warming service.”

As a prominent building in Siem Reap’s historical quarter, Treeline Urban Resort is dedicated to working with the local community to implement better land care practices. Treeline continues to plant trees along the riverside, bans single-use plastics on its property and only chooses eco-friendly suppliers.

"I wanted to create a refined place of sanctuary that communicates our deep-rooted respect of nature whilst celebrating the vision of contemporary Cambodia"

“I wanted to create a refined place of sanctuary that communicates our deep-rooted respect of nature whilst celebrating the vision of contemporary Cambodia; as reflected the design of Treeline, in the artwork we feature and the artists we work with, doing so meant that we had to be mindful of the tiniest of details to create alluring experiences for our guests. At Treeline Urban Resort, we have a thorough commitment to build a better new world”, Hok Kang, Founder of Treeline Urban Resort.
