We have now visited Cambodia 6 times in the last 2 years and on each occasion have stayed in this great hotel. The wooden architecture, stunning pool, good sized rooms and lots of small touches make this a really special place to stay in Siem Reap. Sure, there may be more opulent hotels but one that delivers such consistently high standard of service would be hard to find. A great hotel can only deliver on the strength of its staff and on every one of our visits, staff at every level have been courteous, friendly and helpful.
The location is great, both for walking into town or visiting the temples. Siem Reap is a lively place in the evening and the hotel is a real sanctuary with the staff always on hand with cold towels and a friendly greeting.
Breakfast may be taken either inside or round a series of ornamental pools. There is always a wide choice of fresh fruit and both western and oriental dishes cooked to order and consistently high standard.
The Spa has rightly been nominated for awards for excellence. It is a serene place to spend time after a busy day either at the Temples or in town and the Manager, Mr Dewa and his team, specially our chosen therapist Sokhon, are highly skilful and professional.
The centre point of the hotel is the pool, with rooms surrounding the pool being premium. The pool itself is well maintained and over 30 metres long, ideal for exercising, There is also a small but well equipped fitness centre .
In summary, this is one of our all time favourite hotels and is highly recommended.
