In the past few years of travelling, I have passed through many hotels, and the Anantara properties - in Bangkok, Chiang Rai and Hua Hin - have particularly impressed me for the standard of accommodation and service. But this resort at Angkor in Siem Reap became a favourite due to one great detail - its size. It includes the great... More

It was our first trip to Cambodia and this hotel and its staff made the whole trip exceptionally enjoyable. The service at this hotel was impeccable from start to finish. The hotel arranged for a return airport pick-up and drop-off service. From the moment we met our butler and driver, we were greeted with cold towels, a refreshing drink, and... More

This was our first trip to Siem Reap. We were greeted by the hotel driver at Siem Reap Airport with welcome drinks and cold towels in the car. Something unexpected compared to other 5 or 6 star hotels that we have stayed before. From the moment we arrived at the hotel lobby, we were greeted by the Operations Manager, Peter... More

This was our first trip to Siem Reap. The temples, in particular Angkor Wat, blew us away. Such an amazing place, wish I had not waited so long to visit Siem Reap. As for the hotel, I chose Anantara after reading a number of reviews. So glad I did! From the start, the staff made us feel very welcome, they... More

I did expect flawless service, impeccable food (it was disgusting at two different occasions) and staff that can understand my requests (some lost luggage papers from the airline weren't returned to me as clearly requested to the staff - they eventually appeared after complaining). We also had issues with housekeeping - the first day it was our fault since we... More

Overall, I was disappointed with my stay at Anantara. It promised a lot, but failed to deliver in some significant respects. It wasn't all bad. The hotel itself is beautiful, the welcome mocktail was delicious and the free tuk tuk rides into town and back were appreciated. The biggest issue we had (which really overshadowed our stay) was with the... More
