We booked two rooms for my family while we were in SR this summer. It was a toss-up between this and the Raffles property in SR. We chose La Residence and I am glad we did. The rooms were amazing. We made the reservations through American Express Platinum and they got us upgrades - and it was worth it!
The rooms are very comfortable and well laid out. The bathrooms were amazing! Our rooms overlooked the beautiful pool with a balcony – the perfect place to enjoy a quiet glass of wine before dinner.
The pool is a long, beautiful pool surrounded by the hotel but shrouded by foliage - so it's a very nice setting to relax after a very early morning and a long day of walking through temples - a good way to unwind before heading out to dinner.
The bar was a great experience - a very nice, relaxing atmosphere that was great for pre-dinner drinks.
We did dinner in the hotel for the Khmer dancing – which was very good – and the food was excellent. The breakfasts were good and the service throughout our entire experience was excellent and always with a smile.
Overall, everyone had a fantastic time at this hotel and we would definitely return.
