Bill Bensley took full advantage of his second chance at Cambodia’s Park Hyatt Siem Reap (www.park.hyatt.com). Formerly the art deco–styled Hôtel de la Paix—which Bensley completed in 2006—the property has been transformed by the Bangkok-based architect and designer into a contemporary urban retreat accented with traditional Cambodian details ranging from punkah fans to pink-elephant textiles made by local artisans. Opened in August, the hotel features 108 guest rooms decorated with handcrafted furniture and Khmer-inspired artwork; 13 suites include private swimming pools or gardens. The 14-month renovation also extended to the hotel’s French-Cambodian restaurant and its six-treatment-room spa.
