There's so much to see and do in and around Siem Ream... floating villages, quad-biking, eating and drinking, shopping, scenic helicopter flights, and of course the temples... SO many temples.
We loved all of it. But at the very heart of our love for the place is the Bunwin Boutique Hotel.
From the moment we were met at the airport by the tuk-tuk driver, to the moment we were delivered back there, the whole experience was fantastic.
It's a lovely little hotel with only 10 spacious rooms clustered around a beautiful tropical swimming pool in a very quiet part of town which is only 10 minutes to the busy old part of town. The hotel provides free tuk-tuk transfers into town and they give you a mobile phone so you can call them when you're ready to come home. Brilliant service. And it's free!
The breakfasts in the lovely little open restaurant overlooking the pool were great. Freshly baked breads, croissants and pastries and options for western or asian hot food. If you head out to catch sunrise at the temples the hotel will make you a small breakfast pack to take with you. It's basic but a lovely touch. Lunch in the restaurant was equally excellent with local delicacies on offer as well as western style burgers, sandwiches and hot mains.
The reception desk will book any tours you want to see the sights and are extremely friendly and efficient... which brings me to the best feature of the hotel: the staff.
The staff are amongst the most friendly and accommodating that we've encountered anywhere in the world. Impeccable English and wonderfully high standards for such a small establishment. They made the difference. We owe them a big thankyou for making our stay perfect in every way.
We're already planning a return visit to see more of the temples... and we'll certainly be booking the Bunwin again and recommending it to all our friends.
