“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I could not say enough about the place, it is for me the oasis in busy Siem Reap. It's the impeccable service from doorman to front desk and even the pool boy. All super attentive without being over the top.. It has the feel of a much more intimate hotel even though there are 70 rooms. I love the Martini Bar, the open space and and green surrounding. I don't care for breakfast much but this place serves the best poached eggs. A lunch of steak was better than one I had in Paris recently. I see myself returning to this hotel just for a weekend break.

Room Tip: Any room will do but facing the pool has its advantage.

Loved, loved my experience here- came on to Siam Reap after a busy business trip through Asia for a few days exploring and with myself. The hotel is elegant, comfortable and very enjoyable. The staff are amongst the best - wonderful food, wine and cocktails! Loved the muddled mint and passion fruit cocktail! It was a very memorable trip and felt very comfortable here as a solo, woman traveler.

Room Tip: Look over the pool - upper floor

We stayed here for 3 nights as our base for touring the temples of Siem Reap. It was a lovely hotel, we had a pool view room, which was spacious, well air-conditioned (essential), and well looked after by the staff. The only negative aspect to the room was the shower design – it’s over the (exceptionally large) bath, and you can’t actually reach the shower hot tap if you have short arms. Weird but true.

The staff were exceptional, very helpful indeed, polite, eager to ensure you were happy and enjoying your stay. The GM greeted us on arrival (not sure if that is normal, there was some kind of mix-up as they thought we’d been there before which we haven’t), but very nice to chat to her. We were keen to dine in the town as well as the hotel and the staff were really helpful in advising us which restaurants were air conditioned (not many is the answer).

We ate twice in the hotel restaurant, both meals were very good (Cambodian food both times), and there was a dance show on one night too which was great. We used the bar a lot – good and unusual cocktails (try the basil one), and having a happy hour was a nice touch. No air con in the bar but the fans were effective.

We both had treatments in the spa, both were fine, not exceptional but good enough.

The pool was OK, there was refurbishment work going on around it while we were there, and it felt a bit un-looked-after – it’s clear from other reviews that we didn’t see the best of it.

Would thoroughly recommend this hotel as a base in Siem Reap, it’s convenient for everything, with nice rooms and great staff.

My husband and I stayed here for a portion of our honeymoon and just loved it. The staff was so nice, always greeting us genuinely and always helpful for restaurant recommendations, calling tuk tuks for us, and tour bookings. Our room was upgraded and was fantasic - clean, cozy, large, and well air conditioned! The food and drinks are delicious. They have a nice little open air lounge for evening drinks. Great location - in the heart of town, but not noisy. Highly recommended!

The understated elegance, the beautifully vistas, the gorgeous art and smiling attentive staff. The gracious and knowledgable GM Carla, the delicious food, so well presented, the great location by the river, close to the old market etc.
The pool is perfect to unwind in after a long day of trekking through temples.

Just the best place to stay in Siem Reap!

My wife and I spent 3 days and two night at the residence. We both travel extensively and have stayed at many 5 star properties but the residence provided a truely unique experience that we both thoroughly enjoyed. Everything from friendly professional staff to accommodation and service worked together to provide us with a very special experience.
