The hotel structure; rooms; location and staff are just wonderful.
Hotel: The hotel lobby, bars, rooms and walkways are something to see. Everything is done in wood, its simple and magnificent. Fresh floors and tasteful decorating make you feel instantly welcome.
The bar is open concept --- covered back in time. It is simple and wonderful elegance. You feel the evening Cambodian air --- which is much cooler. Try their infused rice wines they are a delight.
Food -- get your breakfast included. Its a great selection and food throughout the day is equally as good. Diverse selection of local foods and more western choices if you wish. They also open at 5 ov530 for early excursions; or will pack a picnic for you at no charge.
Ground/Location --- this is a perfect spot to go to local market (walk \/$2 yuk-yuk ride). Its also very close to the temples. The grounds are wonderful --- the gardens and pool area make you feel like you are far away from the town; but you are not.
The rooms are well appointed and kept. They are a great size. They need to work on double sink concept. Thats my only suggested improvement.
Gift shop --- remarkable. You will find Siem Reap one of the last places to buy atrisian product unique to the area at affordable prices. Jewellery and sceptres (bronze/wood). The hotel works with local artists and displays some fanatsic pieces. They also include shipping to north america in the pricing.
Service --- the people that host you here are wonderful. As are the people of Cambodia period. The folks at the hotel are true professions; four seasons if not better standard and delivery. I cannot thank them enough for making our stay so wonderful.
