We stayed in Siem Reap for about 6 days to see the surrounding temples, but really we spent the whole time half-thinking when we could go back to the hotel.
The hotel room had a huge bath which was a wonderful pale green colour, and the beds were so comfortable. The AC system was easy to control and changed the temperature immediately. The best part of the experience for me, was returning to the room after a day of sight-seeing to be greeted with a little present by the foot of the beds as well as a stick entwined with Jasmine Flowers. We got a cotton scarf on the first day, a buddhist statue the second day, some famous Kampot Pepper the third, etc. It was marvellous. The breakfasts were amazing, and had catered to everyone's needs, American, British, Continental, Malaysian, Muslim Style breakfasts were on offer as well as people on hand catering to anything you wanted.
While relaxing by the pool, waiters would come round every once in a while and surprise you with a plate of fresh local fruit - on the house. It really was a lovely surprise. As for dinner, we only ate there once as we wanted to try out the best restaurants according to Lonely Planet's guide but we would have loved to eat there again. All in all an amazing experience. Perfect for Honeymooners and families.
The Spa is also amazing if a little pricey, but it was the best Spa I went to in Cambodia.
