“Beautiful, tranquil retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I would definitely recommend this beautiful, tranquil retreat with elegant, wooden decor and fine attention to detail. The staff were friendly and courteous, going out of their way to make us comfortable. I particularly enjoyed a delicious dinner in the candle-lit garden, while enjoying watching some serene traditional music and dancing. The spa is truly beautiful, a lovely, cool, relaxing atmosphere, and the service discreet and professional, serving a nice ginger-spiced tea after the treatment. Breakfast was also a highlight - I didn't need another mouthful for the rest of the day, although I couldn't resist a tangy salad and some Asian wraps for lunch! Thank you so much La Residence d'Angkor, it was one of the highlights of our time in Cambodia.

La residence was the first stop of our holiday in Cambodia.
From the instant of our arrival the welcome was very warm and professional .nothing was too much trouble. The front desk staff were first class- polite, helpful, informative and always ready to help. The management were also very much in evidence , which was all to the good.
We had a lovely big room, and good size bathroom. Fresh milk for morning tea was provided readily!
The swimming pool is big enough for lap swimming and is not purely decorative.
There was a good choice at breakfast and we had dinner in the restaurant once. Although far from full we had an excellent meal ( though not cheap!) with the customary superb service,
Would highly recommend

Super Service at this Hotel, highly recommended when staying at Siem Reap. A truly wonderful, top of the pops, world class Service and Quality at Hotel Restaurant - despite stiff prices. Really, truly outstanding! The lobby lounge is superb, the reception is truly helpful and the hotel grounds are a delight. Not much to add - visit!

Siem Reap is an up and coming town with much diversity to discover... quite different from other places we visited. This hotel was beautifully appointed. The staff was perfectly professional and service was graciously delivered. Temple touring is a hot and sweaty adventure and returning home to LaResidence was always a delight as you were greeted at the entry by a smiling face handing you an ice cold cotton cloth right out of a cooler. It is heavenly and so appreciated. There are benches right outside the grounds along the river offering a lovely restorative place to sit in the shade and watch as life passed by. There are some unique boutique shops right across the river, a 2 minute walk. Some world class new designers offering delightful silk and high quality fabric garments you won't find anywhere else.

We just left this quaint hotel in Siem Reap, and need to express our deep gratitude to Mr. Jacques Varet and the entire staff. My wife came down with a very bad case of food poisoning (in Laos) and needed to go the hospital (Royal Angkor Hospital by the way is first rate, and the staff and doctors there were excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to return there again if I needed to). The entire staff at La Residence were concerned, caring and checked in with us regularly to make sure my wife was recovering well.

By the time we left there today, we felt like we were leaving a group of family and friends. The hotel is very nice, and if you book with AMEX Platinum, there are several wonderful benefits you can take advantage of. The only improvement would be the way the shower is set up in the room...in that the shower is part of the bath tub. You can always shower at the Spa if you are need of a traditional shower. A small price to pay for the great service.

Thank you all again, and enjoy the sweetest Cambodian smiles!

Very friendly reception, beautiful room (we had a deluxe poolside room on the 3rd floor for 5 nights) with spacious bath, helpful and friendly staff, large breakfast buffet and very good food in both restaurants, although I have to say that the fine dining restaurant is substantially overcharging (we made the same experience in 2010 and 2011 at Yangon's Governor's Residence which is run by the same company). We have eaten very good food in Siem Reap on numerous occasions at a fraction of the price charged here. Nevertheless, we would definitely come back here, as the hotel is very nice in all respects, is beatifully set, not too big and has a tranquil atmosphere that allows you to relax after the long hours spent at Angkor's wonders.

Room Tip: The deluxe pool side rooms, the higher up the better, as they get more light
