This is the only place to stay - that is if you want atmosphere, brilliant service, incredible food, realistically priced and not watered down drinks and all of the other services you would expect from a 5 star resort.
You can probably imagine that we were very very satisfied with our 4 night stay.
Rooms: We took two - one for our 18 y/o daughter and one for us. The rooms interconnected and were large and very well appointed with great big comfortable beds, good TV servies and movies, decent sized bathrooms, highly efficient air con and a balcony with a pool view. Complimentary broadband was also in every room so daughter could Skype her Aussie friends and keep in touch.
Food: There are two main restaurants as well as room service and areas where snacks are served in the afternoon. We ate dinner twice at each of the restaurants one of which is French style fine dining the other a mix of French and Asian style food. We are foodies and have travelled a fair bit; the French restaurant was one of the best we have eaten in both for food presentation and quality and value for money. The same can be said for the other restaurant. There is no need to risk crippling Bali belly by eating in Siem Reap. The food here is so much more than adequate.
Breakfast is probably the best you will find anywhere in the world. It is buffet style with just about all food styles on offer. You can even boil your own egg should you wish. There is a comprehensive range of fresh baked breads, danish pastries and croissants, and of course all of the jams etc to go with them. A selection of cold meats (ham, salamies etc) a selection of cheeses and masses of fresh fruits. Then there is the cooked food selections which cater to both Asian and Caucasian tastes; you can try Congee with bacon and eggs if you wanted to.
Facilites: There is a spa and beauty parlour - I had a wonderful massage and my daughter a manicure, the service was excellent and the spa rooms clean and hygienic with ensuite showers. The pool is surrounded by sun lounges so that if you want to just chill out, you can and enjoy all of the pool services (drinks food etc) at the same time.
In the evening drinks are served in an open but covered area alongside the pool, we found this to be an excellent way to unwind after a heavy day checking out the temples at Angkor Wat or some of the many other activities that are available.
The icing on the cake for us was on the day of check out when daughter turned 19. A complimentary birthday cake was served at breakfast for her along with the Happy Birthday song and a card signed by all of the on duty staff.
