My wife and I visited Thailand and Cambodia on our Honeymoon and stayed in all 5* hotels (i.e. The Peninsula in Bangkok) and this was hands down our favorite.
This hotel is a perfect alternative to the large commercialized resorts that pepper the entire town.
The stay started with the hotel picking us up at the airport and providing us with our choice among several fresh fruit juices, provided a cold towel to wash our faces and presented us with a traditional flowers. As we drove to the hotel they kindly pointed out some of the sights as we made our way through Siem Reap.
Once at the hotel, they provided a second welcome drink and moved all of our luggage to our room as we checked in. We were given a quick and informative briefing of the property and were then lead to our room.
The room was amazing. As we were on our Honeymoon, it was set up with rose petals in the shape of a heart on our bed, the bathtub was also full of water and petals and the candles were lit for a romantic atmosphere. The room was designed in a way that provided instant relaxation. It included a private garden in the back and an outdoor shower. It was free of any modern electronics and just allowed you to relax.
After settling into our room, we arranged with the hotel for a driver and guide of Angkor Wat and the surrounding area. They did this quickly and provided a great driver/guide combination.
After the day touring the sights, we came back to the oasis of our hotel and had an amazing private dinner next to the pool. There was a great selection of Khmer, French and other international cuisines available. The prices were more than reasonable. Since it was after dark, the hotel lit a fire pit that is attached to the pool. After dinner we stopped by the marketplace shop and purchased a few gifts to bring home with us. The shop was reasonably priced (certainly can get less expensive items elsewhere, but you ensure the quality by buying it at the hotel).
The next morning we awoke and traveled to Angkor Wat to watch the sunrise. This day we had the hotel's driver take us and he was more than accommodating. After returning to the hotel, we enjoyed the breakfast that is included with any stay. It was a feast. I chose the pancake breakfast (it was the best pancake I have ever eaten outside of the US). My wife had the egg breakfast.
After breakfast we enjoyed a nice morning at the pool. The pool is a saltwater pool that they cool down during the day to keep it refreshing. It is crystal clear water and they have plenty of lounge chairs.
All in all this was an amazing hotel. All request were handled quickly and professionally. The staff is top notch and easy to communicate with. I would recommend this hotel as a truly special place to stay when visiting Siem Reap.
