Waking up to distant pagoda chants, enjoying a wonderful breakfast on a balcony with a view, taking in the warmth and hospitality of hotel staff...
I met my backpacking friends at Bloom Garden for a long-weekend getaway from Manila, and could not have asked for a more peaceful, yet fun, experience in Siem Reap. They thoughtfully arranged airport pickup (complementary) and other activities we were interested in, including tours of the temples, cooking classes, etc.
Our tuk tuk driver, Ren, was truly amazing! Per our request, he drove us to the less traveled temples with breathtaking views of Angkor Wat; arranged a beautiful day trip to the floating villages, stopping along the way for us to take photos; and saw me off to the airport with cold beer, fried crickets and a company of friends! Ren and I also managed to squeeze in a free 2-hour cello performance by the local Swiss doctor Beat Richner, who operates several free children's clinics throughout Cambodia. If you have a few hours to spare, ask Ren to take you to the Saturday performance in the city... it's a pleasant break from the physical activities.
All in all, I recommend this place 100%! In fact, I have already arranged for a room for my father's visit there next month, not to mention a special request for Ren to be his tuk tuk driver.
