Atmosphere, Atmosphere, Atmosphere. The Building used to be the French Ambassadors private residence in the 1920's and what a place it must have been in its Hey day. It possibly looks a little plain by current architectural standards but on closer inspection, the perfect symmetry is evident throughout the whole building and gardens. The swimming pool is just divine for a moonlight dip with the infinity pool trickling into the pebbled surrounds with oh so subtle lighting.
The outside bar and dining area is spacious with elegant seating that surrounds a sparse shallow pool giving a feeling of cool opulence, perfect for twilight cocktails, with retro jazz and cool ambient chill out music. The upstairs bar and dining echo the same gracious feeling.The rooms are simple and again the art deco feel makes itself evident as do the very simple gardens enhanced by welcome shady trees.
The staff were friendly, helpful with temple tours and other bookings, I could move in permanently... The breakfast was superb, best eggs Benedict Iv'e ever had and the Khmer soup delicious. They deliver it at 4.40am if you are doing a sunrise temple tour.The rest of the food was OK, just as well as otherwise it would be inundated with other tourists... and who wants to share such a special place. I'd come back to Siem Reap just to stay here again.
