My husband and I spent our wedding anniversary last year at FCC, we took the 3d/2n honeymoon package and extended it for another night. The package was excellent including temple passes to Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and a few others, elephant rides, hot air balloon (just lifts up, does not move out independently), romantic bath, at least 4 massages/facials etc, bottle of champagne with exquisite canapes!
We were picked up from the airport, served welcome drinks upon checking in (which was instant) and had their staff sit with us to plan what we want to do. We had a designated driver and car. We immediately left for Angkor Wat (believe me, May is an extremely hot and humid month to be in Siem Reap) followed by a quick lunch then to Angkor Thom and trust me, by then we were totally dehydrated!
Our room - average sized but well furnished except that they had a computer monitor-sized TV!! The pool was small but no complaints on that! While we were out in the pool, the staff was setting up our romantic bath. They took a long time and I was getting impatient (have had this at several other hotels and it did not take this long) BUT when i saw the floral arrangement (not scattered petals) in tub, it was definitely worth the wait! This was followed by a hour long foot massage in our room which is exactly what you need after all that walking. Then we were served champagne and canapes in our room!
Aromatherapy smells greet you everywhere in the hotel and you can select your preferred fragrance for your room. 2 lunches and 1 dinner besides breakfast was included in the package and the plus point is that you can order whatever you want from the menu - ala carte and not boring buffet style. So you are free to experiment with the variety, find something that you love and then order more of it!!! The shrimps served in those designer dishes were awesome!!
The staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke good english. Our driver (forgot his name) drove safely and could brief us on the historical sites quite accurately. We hired the driver to take us to the Bantey Srei temple in the outskirts and to the Tonle sap as well.
The spa was small but treatment was good. Overall, I must say it is one of my favourite hotels and I have stayed in various hotels of various sizes around Asia and Europe. Most definitely recommend this hotel - small with lovely architecture and grounds, exclusive, reasonably priced and with great service!
