“Kept dreaming”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I went to the resort in mid-September and til now I cannot forget the almost surreal experience I went through during my 2 nights stay there. I went with 3 other friends and we were staying in 2 Explorer rooms. The room is cozy and beautifully decorated but I squealed with joy when I saw the shower area. There's no door to separate it with the common vanity area (where there's a huge mirror with 2 sinks) and the shower floor was complete with built-in massage stones and 2 rain showers!! The verandah area was quaint and I spent time outside watching vids on my phone while waiting for my friends to wake up. All in all, the resort is great except for the black-outs. It caught us by surprise on the first night but by the second, we got used to it as we were assured the staff would manage the issue on time. The food is very nice (we ordered the chicken and fish crispy noodle dish for two dinners and one lunch), but however the service could definitely be improved. Breakfast was also delish. We didn't get to utilize the facilities on our first day as we were out exploring temples but on the second day we practically soaked ourselves the whole morning (after b'fast) in the salt water pool which was just few steps away from our room. As there were only a few others guests in the hotel at that point, we practically conquered the whole pool! It felt like heaven! We then went for the body massage after and at the end of the day (late check out at 4pm), we had to leave for the airport and head home. I literally shed tears when we left the hotel on the tuk-tuk. Til now I kept thinking about the shower area as well as the pool and the whole calm environment. I would definitely return to the resort again soon! Kudos to the team!

together with a friend, we enjoyed a staycation last month in this small resort. we totally love it. upon sending a few hours in this place, both of us had similar comment .. it was as if we were not in siem reap.

mind you, it's not like we don't like siem reap but having been living and working in siem reap, we totally enjoyed our staycation in such cherished tranquality (albeit it's just a few minutes by tuk tuk from down town siem reap!)

the tuk tuk driver picked us up from la residence d'angkor at 2 as arranged. after around 25 minutes or so, we arrive in the resort, welcome by uber refreshing passion fruit juice (my friend actually wanted several glasses more!)

we enjoyed the staycation, the swim, the laying around in the resort, the tranquility of the place, the nice simple room but we missed ... slippers! the pathway is rather painful to walk on, slipper will be a perfect idea!

food is also nice. i personally love the salt water pool!

Room Tip: get explore 1 or 2. very close from the salt water swimming pool. it's relaxing to lay around on...

Top notch in every way. Picked up free on arrival at airport by a tuk tuk which was free for 12 hours a day for the 4 days we were staying!!! Like having a chauffeur!!! He would come whenever you needed him. Arrival at hotel met by the lady in reception she was lovely. Explained everything about resort, were given a welcome drink then taken to our room. Free foot massage we had later. Shown the pools and restaurant then our fantastic room. Wow!!!! 5 star all the way!!! Breakfast was amazing!! You get a platter with fresh croissants and pancakes, jams toast etc etc as well as the usual eggs bacon etc. Can't default the food here. We had a few snacks and a meal, superb!!!!!!!! Our driver took us to the temples and was good at explaining a few things so we didn't need a tour guide. We only did a day there and we saw a lot of amazing temples but by the end of the day they start to all look the same!!! Amazing and you must see ankor wat but A full day was enough for us. Would stay at navutu dreams again without a doubt!! The place is sooooo relaxing with amazing rooms and food. Thanks navutu xxx
So relaxing

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Navutu Dreams Resort and Spa where we had a most enjoyable experience. The service from the front desk to back of house was friendly and quite professional, a fact the operators should be proud of considering this is a new resort. Being able to get a late checkout (4pm) was very much appreciated as our flight didn’t leave until 6:30pm.

The tuk tuk drivers, supplied by the resort, who picked up our party of four at the airport and transported us around for three days were fantastic, always smiling and always on time. The resort is located a little way out of town, but to us, this just added to the experience. It’s great to see locals going about their daily lives rather than just seeing traffic.

The resort has all the facilities you need; salt and fresh water swimming pools, gym, day spa, bar, restaurant and is beautifully landscaped with the restaurant and bar the focal point. We stayed in a couple of the Grand Tourer rooms which were large and well appointed. They have both air conditioning and fans, which is a very practical set up in the tropical climate and even the outside deck had a ceiling fan. On a few occasions the whole resort did lose power, not just when storms were coming through. I don’t know if this is a problem with the resort or the infrastructure leading to it. In any case, power was always restored within minutes.

Both days we had breakfast in the restaurant. It’s pretty much a set menu with a couple of options for western or asian fare. It was certainly adequate enough to start us on our way. We had lunch in the resort on our last day which was also nice. The drinks are very reasonably priced as they are throughout all of Cambodia.

I would certainly recommend this resort to anyone travelling to Siem Reap who wants a relaxing base to explore the area.

I stayed 5 nights at Nautu Dreams and the cannot fault the service and facilities.
I liked the position a bit out of town as it was quiet and calm, but with the free tuktuk service included we could go into town or to the temples at anytime with only a short ride away ( only 5 mins into town)
the resort is new in town so the local tuk tuks needed some guidence to find the place but I am sure this is improve and if you use the tuk tuks provided by the resort, this will not be a problem.

the food and service was great too - great chef!

We had the larger suite and recommend this as I felt the small room was a bit small for our longer stay, but for a few days it would be fine. All rooms face over the two geat pools and centre dining area.
would stay again.

As what its name states, Navutu Dreams resort really lives up its name. We stayed for 3 nights in September. As the place is new, everything is in tip-top condition. I love the extensive effort they put in landscaping the garden and surrounding with various types of plants and flowers. The Grand Tour room is huge and comfortable.

We had dinner over 2 nights at the resort. The food is very exquisite and delicious, and reasonably priced. There is quite a variety of choice from the menu. The breakfast menu is quite limited. Besides the fixed breaksfast menu, it is just a choice of eggs for the western style or noodle soup for Chinese style, We did not find this an issue, as the breakfast is more than sufficient for us.

As this resort is situated in a remote area away from the town area, it was a very relaxing experience to enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding padi fields and the local's way of life.
However, the downside is difficulty for the drivers to find the place. When we took a cab from the airport, the driver had a hard time locating the place. Luckily we call up the resort and got the manager to talk to the driver.

On 2 nights that it rained, we got a shock of our life that the whole resort just blacked out. The power returned after several minutes before it went off again. I guess this is nothing too extraordinary with the kind of living conditions the locals are in over there.

Lastly, I must comment that the service provided by the resort staff, from the managers, to the retaurant and housekeeping is excellent. The overall experience leaves us with a wonderful memory that we wish to be back again!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the guests that have chosen our Hotel since the recent opening and to thank them for taking time to share their feedback with our managers while at the resort and on this website.

We do know that the road leading to the Resort from the main asphalted road need improving and we will commence work as soon as the green season ends, even though this is a public road and should be mainlined by the local authorities. At the moment any effort to fix it gets wash out by the evening rains. We have advised all our Tuk Tuk drivers to use an alternative route to and from the resort which might be a little longer but it is surely more comfortable.

The town of Siem Reap is facing electrical issues and as a consequence, there are times during the day or night where the whole town goes dark ( including the center of town) . However we do have a back up generator at the Resort that switch on after 10 minutes that the electricity is cut off. We want to apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused to our guests , we hope that the local electricity company will fix their issues soon.

As part of our room rate we provide you with a free personal Tuk Tuk driver for your entire stay ( including airport pick up) that knows exactly how to get to and from the Resort . This is the same if you hire one of our car . If you decide to hire your own transport , please keep the resort phone number with you so that our staff can give correct directions to your driver.

The resort has only been opened for 7 weeks and it is not yet known by the local drivers.

Kind Regards
Navutu Dreams Resort
