The Golden Banana by Rambutan Resort is one of the loveliest, most charming, comfortable, and welcoming places I have ever stayed. I have stayed there multiple times now, either alone or with teen-aged children, and always look forward to returning. The staff are friendly and helpful - and always willing to provide intelligent and interesting local cultural explanations and suggestions about places to visit and see. The hotel is very safe with a feeling of peaceful, quiet seclusion - even though it is conveniently located across the river from busy downtown Siem Reap and within short walking distance of many restaurants. I love walking through the "Golden Banana Alley," which is covered in bougainvillea and hung with red lanterns. I also love all of the rooms (all a little differently situated and arranged), with their lovely balconies surrounded by greenery and comfortable furnishings. The salt water pool is always well maintained, everything is impeccably cleaned and maintained daily, and the food is always great. (I especially recommend the Golden Banana "bau-bau" or rice soup, which is nicely flavored with mushrooms, Kampot pepper and slices of fresh ginger). In addition to its lovely aesthetic sensibilities and beautiful setting, the hotel works hard to be "green" and socially responsible, contributing to the community around it, paying decent wages and supporting staff development in various ways.
