Upon arriving at the airport, the hotel will provide a driver who will deliver you to the hotel. The journey to the hotel you travel through the Treak village just outside of Siem Reap. The village is quite poor and you definitely know you are in a third world country. Upon first impressions, you second guess where you are going and wonder if this is the right place.
Once you arrive at the hotel my first thought was...
What a lovely surprise !
The Sojourn is a beautiful little hotel.
The hotel is pretty small, and we had one of the villas. The Villa was clean, spacious and well appointed. The hotel is in a quaint little village just outside of Siem Reap and is very quiet and secluded. The front desk staff are exceptionally helpful in getting a cab or tuk tuk for you if you want to go into town or want to go on a tour to the temples. The villa we were in had an outdoor shower and an indoor shower with large bathtub and spacious bathroom. The room itself was large and had a daybed/sofa as well. There was wireless internet all over the resort. My only complaint on the room was that the bed was very hard. However the quietness of the resort made up for the hard bed and sleep was always wonderful.
The hotel has a swim-up bar which you can get food at as well. During the heat of the day there is shade at the swim-up bar, so having a quick snack/lunch is fantastic. Breakfast was included. There is a buffet of some fresh breads, fruit salad and juices. There is also a menu where you can choose one item. The coconut pancakes/crepes and the mashed banana on toast were to die for. We also ate dinner at the hotel one evening and it was equally wonderful.
There is a spa at the hotel and a one hour massage can be had for approx $20. For any spa service you are asked to arrive 15 minutes early, where the spa staff will wash your feet and give you a quick foot massage, along with an iced tea drink and a cold towel to help cool you down from the heat. The spa services that we had were wonderful, and we went there a couple of times during our stay.
All of the Staff were awesome. Every day they were incredibly friendly, we were always greeted with smiles. The staff would ask us how our day was, or we needed anything even if we were just walking through the restaurant/lobby area or around the pool.
Overall, I'm very impressed with the hotel. The staff were fabulous with smiles all the time. The staff were also incredibly helpful and would go above and beyond to help you out. The room was clean and quiet. The dual edged sword on the location is that it's quiet, but you are bit out of town. I'd stay at the Soujorn again when going back to Siem Reap.
