Rambutan Resort - Siem Reap

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 September 2013

The place you want to be at in Siem Reap! After long walks at the temples, which can get tiresome due to the steamy whether, entering in your room makes you feel like heaven. My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this place. Major props to the staff and to "Naga", our tuc tuc driver, who was friendly and caring. Your money are well spent with Golden Banana Boutique Resort, make no mistake abt it!

We stayed here with our adult children in August. Can't fault anything. Great service, friendly staff who arranged all of our transportation and a guide for the temples, who was also excellent. Bar and restaurant area well run. Everything else has already been said. A great alternative to big and busier hotels.

Room Tip: The upper rooms have very steep stairs so probably not suitable for small children or anyone with mo...

I stayed at the Golden Banana boutique resort for a week but wish I could have stayed for many more. The rooms are wonderful - clean and spacious with a great bathroom and balcony with outdoor tub. The pool, set in a beautiful tropical garden, provides a welcome relief from the heat and the food served throughout the day is delicious - try the lok lak beef for lunch or dinner. However, it was the staff who really made my stay special. All went out of their way to make sure that I had everything I needed, were great fun to chat with and really made me feel welcome. Some of them even took me out cycling in the countryside on their day off! All in all I couldn't have wished for a better place to stay in Siem Reap and I will be back again and again.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days and we wanted to make the stay longer. First, the rooms are a good size with the best bathroom we had to date and the staff cleans them daily and replaces the water bottles. The breakfast was the best we had in SE Asia with great coffee to top it off. The food for lunch and dinner was also top notch and needs to be tried. The BBQ only available from 6-7pm was my favorite. The pool was perfect for escaping the heat after temple exploring all day and pool side drinks were perfect. They had tuktuk service available at a fair price and the day we saw the sunrise we asked for some breakfast to go and they were able to accomidate us. It is a few blocks away from the old market area which makes for a quiet location that is only a 5 minute walk to all the action. We would 100% stay here again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the BandB room which are cheaper and further away from the pool but we didnt mind.

The Golden Banana was an oasis with a lovely, spacious room and a balcony overlooking the courtyard pool. The included breakfast offered a wide range of tasty options, and at night, we enjoyed a number of very well-made cocktails at the bar. The staff were gracious and friendly.

The GB arranged a van and English-speaking guide to take us through the temples at Angkor Wat, and that experience was excellent. Our guide was knowledgable and funny and very accommodating of our quirky group and varying attention spans. And finally, the pool was an amazing treat after a hot, sweaty day at the temples.

Stayed here for 7 nights from the 3/8/13 to 10/8/13, I'm made very welcome on my arrival after my 5 hour taxi drive from Phnom Penh, the rooms were of good quality & the first 2 nights i'm given a room with a roof terrace, private location, great management & a great team of staff, only a 10 min's walk into town, many enjoyable Tuk Tuk rides, breakfast & evening meals very filling & good portions, great pool to cool off. Bill payed using my credit card without any fuss & the rooms are not expensive, tours can be arranged if requested, a very quiet location. Would love to return again in the future, I wish to thank the entire team for making me so welcome, a special thank you to the manager for suggesting this Resort from Rambutan in Phnom Penh.

Excellent stay at The Golden Banana. Breakfast is served until noon which is nice. Allows you to sleep in a bit and still take advantage of the included Bfast. Great location (walking distance from everything). Very nice pool and two story room set up. Decent amount of mosquitos around the property due to all of the plants, but other than that a great place to stay. Additionally, it is advertised on the website as a gay friendly hotel, but I was there with my girlfriend and it was mostly other guy/girl couples there as well.

Hi Charlie,

Thank you for your kind feedback.
Happy to read you and your girlfriend fully enjoyed your stay at our Resort.
We are indeed a Gay or Strait friendly resort, that means we actually welcome everybody who fits in our mood, feeling and vibe no mater what gender, orientation color or religion, that's exactly what makes our first time guests coming back again and again.
We hope to see you guys also are planning to come back because we enjoyed very much to see both of your smiling faces walking in for breakfast every day.
Let us know in time so we can organize your preferred room.

Take care guys and as we say here in Cambodia "good luck for you"

Warm regards,
