“Happy Days”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is our 2nd visit to this most amazing hotel experience. We were very fortunate to discover this hotel in 2011 approx. one month after the Privilege Floor became available). This is a fabulous hotel which has a dedicated floor “Privilege Floor”, which offers/includes additional facilities and complimentary services – essentially a Club Floor with lots of extras, it provides one unique aspect sometimes missing in many 5* star club experiences – wonderful staff.

We were intending travelling to Thailand and Laos, but one factor persuaded us to detour to Cambodia -fond memories of the staff and the impact of the trip in 2011. Was it possible to re-create the original experience? On arrival at the Airport we were greeted by Jacky who looked after us on our 1st trip, and here he was smiling face, welcoming us back with genuine kindness and pleasure at seeing us. The smiles on the faces of the staff, throughout our stay, bring back very happy memories.

Room: Our room was spacious, lovely terrace, wonderful treats left for us, fruit, nibbles, free mini bar and lovely bubbly to enjoy on our terrace watching the sun setting. The bed is very comfortable; bathroom spacious superb amenities and all immaculately looked after by fabulous housekeeping, free laundry an added bonus.

Food: The choice at breakfast had increased substantially from 2011– which at that point we found to be perfectly good, however the choice now is expansive and all to a very high standard. We ate dinner in the Privilege Floor Restaurant on 3 occasions, and the food was superb. We did have the added advantage of being guided on suggestions by the amazing Ra Dom who is such an expert on all the dishes offered it made us want to come back each night to try something different.

Bar: Fantastic cocktails on offer – again all free during happy hour, the bar staff all enjoying trying out new requests.

Spa: Calming, tranquil, fantastic staff who look after you perfectly – again one session included in price.

Temples: This is what you come for and well worth many visits, it is good to be able to experience at different times of the day – late late afternoon is quite unique. Again, the guide is included in your package.

Night Life: Buzzing, jumping, great bars, superb music and fantastic night markets – great place to interact with the locals – and of course your courtesy driver waiting to take you home.

Staff: This is THE reason for our return visit:- and I make no apologies for the length of this review……we are a well-travelled couple and as such it is truly amazing to see such a high level of service being demonstrated, there are many high profile 5* hotel chains that would learn a lot from the high standards and approach taken by all the staff in this hotel. You are very aware that these genuine kind, enthusiastic people clearly love their job, and are proactive in asking how they can improve on service and enquire if you have any suggestions/feedback (not something we have witnessed extensively in other hotels). Through the commitment and delivery from the team the hotel delivers 1st class customer service, and you will enjoy a visit that exceeds the expectations of most guests.

Special mention to:

Mr Jacky:- The perfect host: caring, genuine, exceptionally efficient and professional. Nothing is too much trouble and you know you are in very safe hands. We were impressed with Jacky in 2011, and even more so in 2013 – this is someone who demonstrates how much he clearly enjoys his role, and wants his guests to have a fabulous experience in Cambodia, asking for feedback and all requests carried out with the amazing Jacky smile. Jacky is most certainly a major asset in any hotel.

Ms Ra Dom:- What an expert on food, attention to detail, and being very attentive to guests. We were so impressed with Ra Dom, she is truly exceptional and no doubt has an incredible future, so keen to learn and looking for feedback – great personality with genuine warmth and fun sense of humour.

Mr Kim Lan & Sophors: Best cocktails in town….always a pleasure to watch them making the cocktails and more so watching them being creative.

Mr Sokmen: Wonderful barman and the Sokmen laugh will stay with you for years – if you could bottle and sell his laugh you would make a fortune. I saw very quiet couple having a meal, and within 2mins he had both laughing due to his infectious humour – it is truly amazing.

Mr Morgan: Our driver – thank you for your patience.

Mr Sambok: Our guide - , such an interesting person, so full of knowledge, and quite rightly very proud of the Cambodian culture. We were fortunate to have this guide in 2011, and we were delighted to find that we would again have the pleasure of his company. He is a massive credit to his profession, and patiently answers all the many questions.

My apologies to the other members of the team whose names I did not obtain, you all contributed to another fabulous stay. Thank you.

If you want a memorable visit to a fascinating country, and a unique hotel experience -look no further......

This was one of the finest stays my wife and I have ever experienced.
Where to start? It's very exclusive but doesn't make you feel odd. The staff are all wonderful. It's genuine and so good to see. They care for you in ways that only your mother would think about.
The room is tastefully done and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast is complete and cocktails later in the day an added bonus.
The inclusion of a car and driver each day is unbelievable as is the issuance of a cell phone for your needs..gratis of course.
Perhaps the single most important item which makes this property a truly great hotel is the staff. Whatever you need they will make it happen and with a big genuine smile. You'll love this experience.

Service, service, service... It's a very nice hotel where only the 4th floor is referred to as The Privilege Floor.

Starts with private van pickup from the airport and private check in.

Rooms were nice, but wasn't able to see if they are any nicer/bigger than other rooms on lower floors.

Staff is absolutely the best and was willing to help with anything you asked for. Every staff member on the floor even remembered our names and greeted us by name whenever they passed. And you even have a 24/7 private driver on call to take you in town, to the tourist sites, or anywhere else.

Breakfast buffet is much bigger on the ground floor (general hotel breakfast) than the 4th floor. For dinner, we ate at Abycus (french) one night and it was fantastic. The other night we ate at AHA (tapas) and that was also excellent. Both highly recommended! AHA is a block from Pub Street, which is a great area to walk around with lively bars and tons of people in the streets.

Only negatives: Internet was slow at times (quicker in the 4th floor lobby), lots of outside noise (1 room had dogs barking all night and the other heard music at 4:30am from a wedding at the pool with no advance warning), and we had some small bugs in 1 room on the last night. Pool view is more desirable if available and no weddings those days.

The Privilege Floor is amazing and worth every Penny. they arranged a private Guide Rit who wa the best guide e ever had, we learned about current history and ancient. Cambodia is moving forward after many difficulties. The people could not be nicer. the floating village shows the real Cambodia. The rooms at the hotel were very clean. the first floor breakfast was the best. Sunset cocktails on the Privilege Floor were great. thank you Alex and Anna.

This place is like home away home. Everything is very personalized. They pick you up at the airport and the pampering starts there. Room and bathroom are spacious and clean. Breakfast is terrific. Cocktail hour is a great opportunity to unwind at the end of the day. Your own car with drive and guide included when you stay at one of the suites in the hotel. Great concept and we are enjoying it right now.

We stayed 4 days in the privilege floor and were pampered from the arrival at the airport where Alex, our personal butler picked us up
After a welcome drink he showed us our suite; it was awesome, king size bed, large terrace with second outside bed; Cambodian style with warm colours and wooden floor
Tip: when u open the window the air-conditioning put of automatically
We received during our stay a cell phone where the numbers from our private chauffeur, the hotel lobby and the restaurant was pre dialled
Each evening when we came to the hotel we felt at home and where sure that if we would have any problems the team of the hotel would be ready to help us out
Special thanks to Alex and Jack our two personal butlers

The hotel is not cheap but do not hesitate if u can afford it
