WE chose to stay in this hotel specifically because, as well as being a nice place, it has a commitment to a community development programme . The hotel runs a hospitality school that trains at-risk young people, then employs them at the hotel. We therefore felt our money was helping Cambodians as well as giving us a very lovely hotel experience .
The hotel has recently reopened and is a really beautiful elegant place. The design echoes elements of Angkor Wat and incorporates water. We loved the unusual designs, Very comfortable rooms and very good service, lovely decor, wide elegant corridors . Also the unusual features, corridors open to the air,and the outdoorsy aspect of toilets by pool bar .
Unlike other recent reviewer we found hotel very calm and quiet .
the staff were really excellent , very helpful , attentive and friendly without being obtrusive.
really excellent food - the most elegant food we had in SE Asia
we had an excellent dinner and really enjoyed the breakfasts - choice of western and asian style.
based on what we experienced the training programs at the hotel is excellent . staff seemed happy and were willing to chat to us.
Location good - quiet street but close to town, markets . Very helpful tuk tuk drivers waiting outside
It is a model for responsible tourism . Both my son and I loved the experience - We want to go back to this lovely hotel!!
