“Amazing stay next to beautiful Angkor”
Reviewed 9 October 2011

We stayed at the Samar Villa & Spa Resort in August 2011, and it certainly exceeded our high expectations! The suites are wonderful, decorated with beautiful furniture and accessories, with beautiful and spacious bathrooms. The swimming pool is perfect for relaxation after a long day of touring the temples at Angkor, and so are the spa services offered. Breakfast is excellent and filling, with freshly baked croissants and delicious tropical fruit. We also had dinner twice at the hotel during our stay, and the modern Asian fusion cuisine as well as the cocktails were outstanding. Most importantly, we enjoyed meeting the managers and the staff of the resort. They do everything to help you enjoy your time at Angkor and Siem Reap, from arranging tours to the temples, to arranging transport with the resort's tuk tuks, to making recommendations for dinner in town. Everyone is very professional, and the service is tailored to each traveller's needs. We would highly recommend this property to anyone travelling to Siem Reap. Hopefully, we will have the chance to stay there again sometime!

I stayed at the Samar Villa & Spa hotel last month with my parents. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment which was comfortable and elegantly furnished. Both the bedrooms had attached bathrooms that were spacious and modern.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the WiFi connection was strong. The hotel is a short taxi ride away from both the city and Angkor Wat.

Very well decorated, charming, quiet and very professional service made our visit in Cambodia unforgatable.

We do belive return and spend more time than we did recently.

Room Tip: All rooms have a unique Khmer's style and decoration.

A rare combination of 5 star/personal service and charm. Niched in a traditionnal Khamar house, every room is decorated with refinement and style, and we have been looked after with personal touch. Great for a family week end or romantic gataway.

The Samar Villa & Spa Resort is the perfect mix between the service standards of a 5-star hotel, and the privacy of a residence. There are only 7 rooms in the large building that overlooks the pool, one detached villa, and one villa above the fine dining restaurant so you can count on getting personal service.

The rooms are all beautifully decorated, spacious, and comfortable. The Founan villa also has one-of-a-kind paintings from Yves Saint Laurent, who was a friend of the owner. Families should stay in the Apartment Suite which has two rooms attached by a living room. For people traveling with electronics, the Wifi is limited to the Public area, and the signal is best in the lobby and restaurant. However, there are plenty of outdoor outlets to plug in your laptop. Although the villa looks historic, it is newly built—so you can expect all the modern connivances. The details have been really thought out, like personal handmade soap in the bathrooms, pool amenities, Egyptian cotton sheets, ala carte breakfast, daily incense/essential oil burners in your room, etc.

One of the best things about Samar is the location—it's on the road to Angkor Wat and a bit away from Old Market, so you are in a very peaceful side of town. This can also be a down side if you want to be in bustling Siem Reap, or if you are looking to party with other tourists (in that case, look elsewhere.)

For transport, the hotel will hook you up with a personal Tuk Tuk driver who can take you anywhere you want (with reasonable pricing for day tours) essential for first time visitors! Everyone in our group fell in love with Samar Villa, and we can't wait to go back. Thank you to Christian and Bertrand Prestaut, the Father-Son, Manager/Owner team that created Samar--You have a spectacular property!

Room Tip: The building is wood so noise tends to travel

Samar is a place that I will not forget. I staid a week and could have stayed a month.
It is this kind of hotel where you feel in your own home. Details are important and make the difference. I had a chance to visit a few different rooms and each one has something special. For people who love special places and do not like too much large hotels, they can try the Samar. The swimming pool is 2 steps away from the room and the restaurant 3 steps away. The food there happily surprised me also in the same way, be sure to try it.

Ten minutes far from Angkor Wat temple, this charming hotel is perfectly located in Siem Reap. After spending the whole day in the Angkor area, the Samar Villa is the best relaxing place ever.
The room are spacious and the refined decoration refers to the colonial period. Everything is gathered to make you feel comfortable : the staff is really friendly, the homebaked food is delicious, the spa and swimming pool are relaxing, tuk tuk are always at your disposal.
I would like to thanks Mr Prestau for his tips (best restaurants, places to visit) and his warm welcome.
