“Absolute Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2011

What was supposed to be 5 days in Siem Reap turned into 7 because we loved Journeys Within so much! The staff is overwhelmingly friendly and helpful but not at all over the top, the breakfast is scrumptious (get a mango or pineapple shake!), the pool is bliss and best of all, the rooms are amazing: spacious, tastefully decorated, with personal balconies complete with ceiling fans and I thought our bathroom was ahhhhh-mazing. Not too big, but the shower with the rocks around it and the yummy bath products - loved it.

Best of all, its the perfect haven from both temple hopping and "downtown" Siem Reap. I was initially hesitant about the location but it could not turned out any better. After a full and exhausting day at the temples, it's so nice to have such a zen place to relax by the pool (and even take a full day break between days 2 & 3 of the temples - I highly recommend planning this in your itinerary if possible).

I can not imagine spending all day at the temples and then coming home to the crowded, touristy streets of the town center, it would just be way too much. The free tuk tuk into & out of town is a perfect and convenient way to get in to restaurants & the night market, and we were never waiting more than 3 minutes for it. Also - the literature in the room is worth reading, especially for the restaurant suggestions. We tried 3 or 4 of them and were extremely satisfied. "Khmer Kitchen" in particular was delicious.

We booked both a tuk tuk driver and car for tours of the temples and both were reasonable and a good value for the money. The drivers were flexible and friendly.

I'm fairly picky, you can tell from my other reviews, but clearly, I can't say enough great stuff about this place. And to top it all off, they're doing something really great within their local community. A++ all around.

Room Tip: We were in the Rattan Room & loved it.

We learned about Journeys Within, as both a travel provider and a small hotel, from a couple aboard a cruise ship. We later saw that Andrea was highly recommended by the Condé Nast Travel magazine. I proposed a 7-week itinerary in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, and Andrea and her team found all the flights, trains, boats, guides, drivers, hotels, restaurants that we needed. We spent a whole week at their hotel in Siem Reap, spending LOTS of time in the ruined temples, but also visiting museums, and craft workshops.

Every morning, after walking through the well-tended water garden, and listening to the bird life, we looked forward to meeting the friendly waitstaff, and eating a delicious breakfast. On several evenings, we also had lunch at the hotel. Next door, is the Journeys Within Our Community foundation, and it was wonderful to see the good work that Brandon and Andrea are doing there, and be able to interact with the staff and volunteers.

The journey to downtown Siem Reap was an adventurous one, riding around the potholes in a tuk-tuk (which you book, to come to the hotel to pick you up). There are scores of places to eat, and people-watching is delightful.

After travelling to over 120 countries, and mostly making my own plans, I was a little unsure about entrusting ourselves to unknown travel providers. I should not have worried. Andrea, Brandon, and their team will look after you, both on the road and in their well-run hotel.

Room Tip: For privacy & lots of space, get the bungalow.

Staying at Journeys Within is like staying with family only better. Andrea, Brandon, Kathryn and their team do a spectacular job of making you feel welcome in their beautiful surroundings. The rooms are first class with lovely balconies, comfortable bedding, waterfall showers and are super clean and spacious. The tours and the interaction with their non profit affilate Journeys Within Our Community was amazing. Nicola the managing director of the non profit side is genuinely passionate, committed and skilled. You know the school is doing well by looking into the beatiful faces of the children who attend. I left my itinerary in their capable hands and was genuinely wowed, not only ny Siem Reap, but Bangkok and Chiang Mai. The Journey's Within team created a meaningful and rich itinerary which included local interaction that was knowlegable and amazingly customized. The guides went out of their way to please and my only regret was that they would not fit in my suitcase.

I have traveled all over the world, stayed at top hotels, oftentimes upgraded to superior accomodations...nothing I have experienced beats the charm, gracious service and accomodations of Journey's Within.

We just came back from Cambodia and we really loved this B&B! We travelled with our 4 kids (15, 13 and twins of 8) and everybody wanted to stay longer. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the Bungalows are spacious and very nice and the breakfast was great! Everything was very clean and nicely arranged.
There were complimentary drinks in the fridge (daily refill) and a little surprise present on our bed. The staff was very well informed and booked all our activities for us.
We can only recommend this place!

The staff was awesome... so attentive to our needs! We arrived late in the evening and "wondered" about supper but there was no question: we had a delightful meal even at a late hour. Laundry, little details, timing for shuttles.... everything was given careful attention and seemed to flow naturally. Throughout our two weeks in Cambodia and Vietnam we stayed in several wonderful hotels, but the Journeys Within B & B was our favorite by far.

I was traveling with a friend, and it was our second visit to Siem Reap. We were met at the airport by a representative of the hotel and taken straight to the hotel, where we ordered lunch and then went to enjoy our lovely room. We were in the Buddha room, with 2 double beds, a lovely sitting area, beautiful bathroom, outdoor seating in front of the room and steps from the welcoming swimming pool. They have tuk-tuks available every evening to take you into town for dinner. All tours of the temples, guides, other tours of the area and general info is readily available from their friendly and English speaking staff. It is about 10 minutes from town or the temples, and transportation is easy and cheap. A nice respite from the hustle of downtown.
And the wonderful work they are doing for the community in their JWOC facility next door is very impressive.
You will enjoy your stay with them!

Everything was outstanding from the drivers, accommodations, food, daily trips/adventures, guides and overall trip coordination. Journeys Within was very professional, organized, timely, and provided us a great taste of Cambodia, Laos, and Bangkok.
