The River Garden was our first stop on our month long trip and boy were we spoilt. It feels like a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap town. We stayed upstairs in the Khmer Cottage and absolutely loved it. The gardens were beautiful, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool was by far the best part- being able to cool down after a long day of walking around Angkor Wat. The food and restaurant ended up being our fave meal on our whole trip. The Chicken Amok Curry was devine, as the rest of the menu....and I cant forgot about the lemongrass martini's.... the best ever! The breakfast buffet was also very nice and the hotel had it's own tuk tuk drivers waiting out the front, to take you anywhere you desire. We ended up eating at the hotel most of the time because the food was so good- hence why they run the 'Cook's & Tuk Tuks' Cooking School. Each morning the local Monks come into the hotel to receive a donation and give their blessings. This was a really special touch.
We are hoping to go back to Siem Reap again one day, and probably wont even consider staying anywhere else, because we loved The River Garden so much. It's quiet, relaxed, and very quaint. Im not a fan of big, sterile hotels, so this place was perfect for us. I highly recommend staying here, or at least going for lunch and a swim in the pool.
