"It is a calm oasis in an urban streetscape with fire gardens, water features and a three-storey spa pavilion." -Small Luxury Hotel.
"The focal point of the Hotel de la Paix is the central courtyard swimming pool and water garden, a stunning and sedate public space. The hotel’s 107 rooms ring the courtyard, and the pricier suites have garden terraces of their own, some including outdoor baths. Other rooms face outward, overlooking Siem Reap’s street life — inside, though, even these rooms are quiet and still, little Art Deco temples in black and white.
An excellent Khmer restaurant and the three-story Spa Indochine make the Hotel de la Paix something of a self-contained hospitality experience. It’s far from the only game in town, however — there’s plenty to see (and to eat) on the streets of the city, and of course just a few miles up the road is a certain ancient temple site you may have heard a bit about." -Tablet Hotels.

“My philosophy on design has always been Lebih gila, lebih baik, which in Indonesian means the more odd, the better.”
-Bangkok-based architect and landscape architect Bill Bensley.
"My work tends to be characterised by being eclectic, baroque, maximalist. No one ever accused me of being minimalist. And I certainly do not take myself too seriously, I like to bring humour to the landscape."
-Bill Bensley, He Said She Said.
Raised in Southern California and educated at Harvard, he oversees a 45-member firm that specializes in exotic luxury resorts. He first came in asia in 1984, following his mentor, master architect Mathar 'Lek' Bunnag who shared his class in Harvard. After his attempt to work alongside with Bunnag at the National, University of Singapore failed, he work at Belt Collins, an american landscape architecture firm before starting Bensley Studio in Bangkok in 1989, starting with a small garage space with Bunnag. They work together for the next 13 years.
Although Bensley worked as a landscape architect for 20 years before discovering his talent for architecture, he believes that distinctions between disciplines are largely immaterial.
