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.
