When my husband said he had booked "The Golden Banana" for New Years Eve in Siem Reap I must admit to thinking "what the...." Driving along the dusty potholed road did nothing to allay my fears.. But then turned the corner and "Wow"! Paradise was awaiting. Beautiful hotel! We had a separate little villa, covered in tropical flowers, aircon, lovely relaxing setting. Ice cold swimming pool and the most brilliant cocktails. I feel in love with the hotel, but more so the owners and the staff! They could not do enough for us and when asked if we could extend our stay...no problem they re-arranged their bookings so we didn't need to change rooms. The Golden Banana is conveniently situated, easy to walk into town. We hired a guide for 7 days and saw the Ankor Wat and its many aspects. Tip: time your visit for the full moon and watch the Moon rise over the Ankor Wat rather than watch the sunset - much more spectacular !!
