A family run resort in a tropical garden, Palm Village is 3km from Angkor Wat and a similar distance from the centre of Siem Reap. As a result, it's a little oasis and perfect for our visit to the temples at the end of three weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia.
We booked a family bamboo hut which was as close as it gets to living like a local without doing a homestay. The hut was on stilts and had fans father than air-conditioning, but we wanted for nothing. Breakfast could be had in the restaurant or by the pool, and the food on offer for lunch or dinner, especially the Khmer dishes, were brilliant.
April is hot and steamy in Siem Reap, so late afternoon relaxation by the pool helped sooth the muscles and recover from 8 hours a day visiting the nearby magnificent temples.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was completely different from that of the large chain hotels in town.
We were there during Khmer new year so we had fireworks every night.
Somewhere nearby were monks who began chanting at 4am, but that only added to the exotic atmosphere.
Other guests we met raved about the massages.
