This hotel on paper/in photos is a lovely tropical paradise. It does look wonderful in reality but the practicalities is not for people who want their creature comforts.
For example, the airconditioning( on maximum) in the room is just about adequate to stave off the heat but not cold enough to be refreshing, The bathroom is a bit eclectic and have a woody smell coming from the decking used as the floor of the open shower which by the way is very near the toilet. As a result after a shower, the toilet seat is completely wet!
The room is very dark because the one window(without glass) has wooden shutter which has to be kept close due to mosquitoes.
If you are going to the Angkor Wat sunrise ,do bring a torchlight.There are no lighting whatsoever on the path leading from your room to the hotel entrance and it is pitch dark! You might fall into the swimming pool or the pond on either sides of the path. Quite an adventure to start the day!
If you are eating at the hotel restaurant open air) in the evening, be warn ladies! to wear trousers and socks. If you insist on a dress, cover your legs with mosquito repellant
cream. I was bitten no less than 15 times on my ankles which caused a lot of discomfort.
The redeeming feature is they have got gentle friendly staff who aim to please but somewhat not too professional about it! Slow service but what the heck you are on holiday!
