Now I have to say I'm quite a picky guest when it comes to staying at resorts... The Golden Banana blew me away with their impeccable service, greeted by the manager upon check in and he is a lovely guy, he is concerned about your comfort and regularly walks by and engages you to see how you are in a friendly and social manner. The staff are wonderful, they all speak english well, and are even sent to english lessons as part of their employment at the GB (To be honest, I felt terrible that I couldnt speak Khmer back..I tried and it was always met with a smile). GB is gay friendly, I felt comfortable holding my partners hand in public and being affectionate (respectfully so in public..) We met another gay couple who brough their children and they looked lke they were having ball! Everyone looked relaxed and interacted with each other, you dont have to however the warm and welcoming environment provided by the GB seemed to bring out everyones social side. Everyone is included, just the way it should be :o)
The rooms are stylish and clean, I didn't want to leave! My partner and I stayed in the delux room which we highly recommend. Now I'm a little insect phobic, I did not see one little creature except for those cute geko's which are your friend (They eat the bugs) and look totally cute whilst doing it. The private bath located on our private upper deck was gorgeous, and provided a romatic setting for some private time with the other half :o)
We can not wait to return to Siem Reap and the Golden Banana, I rate this a 5 star resort which is deserves through and through. Well Done guys and thank you for a stay like no other.
From the bottom of ours hearts thank you for an amazing experience, one never to be forgotten, Siem Reap is a magical place, so you need a magical place like GB to complement its charms.
