Just back from a trip to Siem Reap followed by a week in Thailand. Stayed at the Natura Resort and can only say what a great place. It is located on the outskirts of Siem Reap beside the river in a quiet and peaceful setting and beautifully laid out with trees and planting. A true oasis of calm and relaxation after an energetic day exploring the Angkor temples.
Easy access to town either by Tuk-Tuk ($3), or a simple 20-30 min stroll along the riverside road until you reach the foot bridge across from the Old Market and the centre of town. It's location closer to Angkor and just off the main road to Angkor from Siem Reap made it a comfortable bicycle ride from the Resort and an experience I would fully recommend as having your own transport enabled you to enjoy the temples at a pace that suited you.
I can only affirm what other posters have said that the young staff here are some of the most helpful and attentive I have come across and seem genuinely happy, always on hand to help but never in an intrusive way. Nothing is too much trouble for them and all done with such an engaging smile and grace.
We stayed in room 6 toward the front of the resort on the first floor. The room was beautifully appointed again reflecting the calmness of the resort's setting and the bathroom with rain shower perfect for freshening up after a long day sight-seeing.
We dined twice, once in the restaurant and another time by the bar and the food was delicious and of a high quality. I cannot recommend the mango sticky rice dessert enough. Having continued on to Thailand and experienced it many times there, the chef at Natura wins hands down with her recipe, just amazing!
We really cannot recommend this place enough. If you plan on visiting Siem Reap and Angkor Wat then this place ticks all the boxes. It's well located, well appointed with all the facilities you require: bar, pool, restaurant, wifi.
The well designed layout and size of the resort enables it to retain an intimate feel and charm lacking in so many hotels in this day and age.
Finally the staff are your most prized asset and the staff here truly attest to that!
Thank you all for a wonderful experience!
