Staying at this boutique resort is easily one of the best experiences I have had for the price it offered in S.E.Asia. Fabulous decor that is carefully designed for aesthetic appeal, a very friendly staff (and very good-looking I may add), a well-maintained property overall and a great location in Siem Reap... I have personally recommended this place to many friends, especially couples as it is a quite a romantic place! Breakfast cooked-to-order is scrumptious omelettes and a fresh assortment of fruits!We stayed 4 nights at the low-season after having made a rather last-minute booking for 67 dollars a night. They arranged for our temple tours with the tuk-tuk driver - Kim Jin who is a gem of a person!
The outdoor bath-tub is a spa experience on its own after a long day at Angkor Vat in the heat ..easily the biggest unique selling point for Golden Banana Boutique! The only caveat I would offer for elderly travellers or those with very small children - is that if someone has truble in the knees - do make sure you request for a room on the ground floor as the stairs are very steep, although a room on the top has the best view of the salt pool from the outdoor tub as there is greater privacy from the top floors!
