“H(e)aven in Siem Reap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2013

This boutique/charming hotel is really special and is to be recommended to any traveler visiting the Angkor area. Its limited size (4 doubles, 1 bungalow for 4 and 1 villa) is a promise of utmost care and attention by Yves the owner and the wonderful staff. Our family stayed in the villa that can lodge up to 8 people in 4 rooms over 2 floors, with a small park, private pool, a most pleasant patio with severable tables and a pool table and a wonderful terrace on the 2nd floor. There can not be a better place for relaxing from the hustling of the temple visits. Yves has built the place from the ground up and will make sure you get an unforgettable experience from your stay through personal attention and care. We can't agree more with another review stating the quality of the in-house restaurant. It is a hidden gem not to be missed for its quality as well as value versus hit and miss of downtown Siem Reap. Location is very good too, not too far from the airport and no more than a 10' tuk-tuk ride to downtown. Make sure to consider this special place as you build your travel to Angkor!

Room Tip: Villa is an exceptional accommodation for a large family but all four doubles seem very pleasant too...

If you want to avoid the noisy city center and its standardized hotels, this is the place to stay! La Palmeraie is a boutique hotel, located in a nice tropical garden with a swimming pool, 10 mn from the city center by tuk tuk. Large, clean and well maintained rooms. The in-house restaurant is fine with excellent Franco-Khmer food. Yves, the owner-manager who has been living in S-R for more than 10 years, does its best to make your stay in Siem-Reap unforgettable (giving advice, booking efficient tuk tuk drivers,...). The Khmer hospitality at its best in a friendly atmosphere.

We've been staying for one week at La Palmeraie d'Angkor with 4 kids and that was really wonderfull! This place is absolutely charming: very well decorated, great swimming pool, beautiful garden. We felt at home and not in a standardised big hotel.
The location is really convenient: 10 min far away from the airport, 10 min to city center and 15 minutes to the temples by Tuk-tuk. Transportation/tuk-tuk can be organised by the hotel.
We liked very much beeing closed to Siem Reape but still a little bit outside of the town center. This makes our holidays very relaxing and we enjoyed having a break from crowded, busy cities.
Food is great. You can get both local khmer food and western food and they are very helpful if you need sepcific baby food.
In short: We would definitely recommend you to stay at La Palmeraie if you need an accomodation in Siem reap.

We spent three nights at this lovely hotel set in a beautiful garden halfway between the temples and the town (a 10-15 minute tuk-tuk ride away). We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms next to the pool which was clean and simple with an open shower, a/c and ceiling fans and a balcony to sit out on. The service was great and they were happy to organise tuk-tuks and guides for our stay. The food at Madame Butterfly (the restaurant linked to the hotel but set in a villa closer to town) was delicious.

Definitely recommended for people looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life/tourist central.

We had a great one week stay at La Palmeraie. We were met at the airport despite issues with our arrival time (Delayed flights and difficulty accessing correct information). The family bungalow was spacious, beautiful bathroom both inside and outside components, the kids (2 and 4 years) loved the seperate bed alcoves with curtains and it gave us some privacy.

Good quality breakfasts included, other meals can be ordered from the Madame Butterfly Restaurant and delivered. We took advantage of this and had some lovely meals. Madame Butterfly is also worth a visit, the restaurant is in a traditional wooden Cambodian house "similar to Queenslander style for the Australians reading this", lovely ambience and food.

The pool and gardens were quiet and relaxing and we spent quite a bit of time there having young children. The gardens were walled and gated as well which made it reasonably secure.

Yves in an excellant host and made sure everything was going well and organised transport/guides as required. His staff were very attentive and there is also a bar service.

I would have no hesitation recommending La Palmeraie to others. The only thing that some people may not like is that it is not walkimg distance to the city centre and we used a tuk tuk. However that is also the thing that makes it very quiet and relaxing.
