What a stunning place to experience Siem Reap. I would not stay anywhere else. People use the word oasis, and that's exactly what I thought when I arrived. Coming 'home' from the dusty hubbub of Siem Reap to Borann was just gorgeous. Room was exceptionally clean and was serviced everyday, bathroom was great, shower had hot water also if needed it. Balcony was lovely and spent many hours chilling and catching the last sunrays overlooking the pool.
Pool is a godsend to chill out around after temple trekking or Psar Char shopping, grab a pot of Jasmine tea and call it heaven.
Tuk Tuk into town is only 1-2 mins and charge $1 USD (though they will try to get more - I mean what's an extra 50c or $1 now and again anyway).
I got a guide and a car from the hotel ($25 for guide and $25 for car per day), both driver and guide were lovely, definately recommend it.. It's worth having a guide for the temples, otherwise you are walking around these magnificent structures with no knowledge of what is going on or what the carvings mean - you pay this much to get to Cambodia, pay another $50 to learn more.
Stay here and you won't regret it.
