We had an unexpectedly wonderful experience at the Raffles. To be honest, we did not expect 5 star treatment or amenities - boy, were we wrong! The hotel and the staff are superb - truly 5 star.
The hotel itself is beautiful - a grand, historic mansion with lovely original antique touches - an original 2-3 person wood-paneled wrought-iron elevator, a lovely wood paneled library, an expansive pool area, beautiful marble black & white checkered floors throughout. There are lots of special service touches - a nice cool drink and scented towel upon arrival, to a small gift presented to you by the restaurant after dinner.
We ate at two restaurants - the cafe for breakfast and the traditional Cambodian restaurant for dinner. The dinner was exceptional. We'd never tried real Cambodian food. It was very elegantly prepared and tasted wonderful.
The staff seems to want to cater to your every need. They are exceptional friendly and seem to genuinely care about whether you are having a good time at their hotel.
Highly recommended. An elegant, charming oasis in the hot, blistery, somewhat grueling city of Siem Reap for sure.
