Sofitel Angkor Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort
Ranked #30 of 378 Hotels in Siem Reap
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 26, 2013

This beautiful resort lives up the Sofitel's statue with a sprawling property sprinkled with large lily ponds, waterfalls and a swimming pool that is enticing to look and delightful swim in. After the heat, crowds and noise of Angkor Wat and it's many temples, this is a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate your mind and body in. The food is exceptional and the staff can't do enough for you.
My room was so pleasing I really didn't want to leave it. It was large with a great balcony over the gardens and one of the ponds. At night the lighting was perfect through the resort accenting the resort's calmness and beauty. Loved my stay.

I'd have to say that the Siem Reap Sofitel was the best total hotel experience I've ever had. Totally unexpected and far above expectations for such a remote place.

From the reception (cold towel and car - to contrast the rather abrupt customs officer!!) at the airport to the hotel staff from doormen to reception to bar and restaurant staff could not have been better and the massage was the best I've ever had as well. Top this with the extraordinary experience of visiting Angkor Wat and the other amazing temples, the great fresh water sea and the fun of the night markets. Hard to beat for a life experience of great contrasts and among friendly people who seem not yet to be bored to death by European tourists.

Of course the night market like any market worldwide was the province of lots of people wanting to relieve you of all your money but comparatively most pleasantly.

And underlying superficiality of the tourist holiday level an insight into the tragedy of this country and the strength and resilience of its people.

Room Tip: We had a first floor room (only two floors) with a balcony overlooking the lake and pavilion. Beauti...

Very convenient location near Angkor temple complex. The hotel offers spacious and clean rooms. The food is of very high quality and the breakfast buffet is huge. They have a lovely pool area which is perfect to relax after a temple tour day.
I booked a guide through the hotel and had a very informative tour. The first concierge (Asian lady wearing a suite with I think Japanese name) was not very helpful at all and was not very interested to give advice. Later went back and another young lady named Channa who was outstanding. She gave so much advice and organised a private tour according to my wishes for the next day. Big thanks her.
The airport transfer was very special. The driver Mr. Sea did not only drive me to the airport but gave a lot of info abot his county on the way to the airport
Would definitely recommend this hotel

Spent 4 days at teh Siem Reap Sofitel. It was a great haven to return to after 39 degree Celcius days at Angor Wat. Property is very well layed out, high end finishes in the common areas and in the rooms. The service was excellent by staff at the desk, concierge and most importantly in the restaurant. Best breakfast omlettes I have had in a while - cooked to order. The one down side is the pool is not cooled... I know that sounds strange, but trust me when you have temperatures into the high 30'S and higher, it is pretty important. The pool area was a lagoon set up and was well layed out, but it was not refreshing at all. A small thing, but when a property is that good, you need to look for small things that make a difference.

Room Tip: Choose one on the Pool or Lagoon side of the

Superb hotel with wonderful service. Everyone smiles. We used it as the base for our 3 day tour of the Angkor complex - our fantastic guide Chamrong was arranged through Tours by Locals and we'd advise anyone looking for very knowledgeable local guides to use them. As we were in the hottest part of the year the hotel made a wonderful restful oasis in the middle of each day, and as other reviewers have said, the huge pool and the excellent service really completed a fantastic trip.

The hotel is a few minutes away from the airport and Angkor Wat. To get to the city proper (old market, Pub St., etc.), you can take the tuk-tuk which the concierge can easily arrange for its guests.

The room we got is spacious, with an anteroom before the balcony. The balcony looks out to the mini lake in the center of the hotel buildings.

The best meal at Citadel (main restaurant) is breakfast. Lunch and dinner buffet have limited choices, particularly if looking for traditional Khmer cuisine.

HOWEVER, the service is impeccable. The staff go out of their way to please. They are very courteous and kind. The hotel staff made our stay close to perfect.
