We stayed here for 2 nights. It is a fairly new resort, with some construction still happening which spoiled the serenity somewhat. It's a Chinese casino, and has a very typical old-school casino feel to it. There's not much to do here except eat, drink and hang out at the casino or listen to the (ordinary) live music in the large foyer area by the bar. The room was perfect, and the staff are extremely friendly. Service was great, but getting lost in translation cause a couple of problems with ordering food, but that's to be expected.

Unless you like to gamble, you come here for the isolation and the sights. The abandoned Catholic Church and old French casino were very eerie and surreal places to visit, just a short bike ride up the hill (you want to be at least a little bit fit). The old casino however appears to soon be re established.

The thick and almost constant fog adds an eerie feel to this place, high up on a mountain. It is significantly cooler up here, but still not 'cold' when we went.

Be cautious of the food.. Some of it is nice, but some is a little strange. I had one chicken dish in the noodle bar in the casino that I could swear was more like a piece of pigeon. Urgh!

You can also get a massage or go to the gym or pool in the adjacent building.

Date of stay: September 2013

First of all, I must say that there's no reason (for a Western tourist) to stay here unless it's a stopover on your way to/from Sihanoukville. There is absolutely NOTHING to see and to do on Bokor mountain. Its scenery (if there was one) is spoiled by the huge construction site, and this is only the beginning, a little part of huge development project that would turn a highland natural park into a luxury resort with hotels, villas, condos, casino etc. Perhaps, the customers from Cambodia, China and Vietnam seem to enjoy this kind of entertainment, as the casino was full of chinese and locals. This kind of audience is the target for all that construction (concert hall, conference centre...), so there is absolutely no chance to enjoy the views (because this hotel is built NOT on the mountain edge) or explore the surroundings (because there is none except a tiny waterfall and an old burn-down church).
More than that, the hotel itself is a collection of ugly concrete blocks built presumably in late 70s. The best view you can get is the parking lot, otherwise it's another block or the wall. I wonder how beautiful must it be to stay in a small classic hotel on the mountain, overlooking the Siam bay... I also wonder why this idea never came to the architect who designed this "resort", best association of which would be a prison.
Rooms are average (more or less deserve 4 stars) but the bathroom is dark because of the poor lighting (casual problem for most hotels in Cambodia).

There are, of course, the good things about this hotel:
- surprisingly good dinner
- reasonable prices for F&B, as well as for other activities. They could've charged more because of the location.

But, again, this is not a good reason to stay here.

I stayed at this hotel for a night last week.. This is a new hotel probably opened in the last one or two years.. The rooms are clean. However, there is nothing much to do at this hotel except spending time in the casino.

I have been on Bokor during the festival season this month and I had a great time in the resort. The weather was pretty unpredictable, with some showers during the day . The Resort and the mountain was full of people. The hotel organized live music for inside and had great BBQ set up as well as live music in front of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and the service was very attentive, also the sushi was great . In the evening we spent a couple of hours in the night which was ok. The beds are very comfy and the breakfast buffet has a wide selection of hot dishes as well as cold and fresh baked pastries and bread

We had an amazing time set amongst the clouds and a drastic contrast to the city. The views constantly change as does the weather ( bring a sweater). You need to remind yourself how high up you actually are. The staff may have limited English but were very friendly and eager to please. The food is very good with a good buffet selection and extremely cheap. If the kids didnt like what was on the buffet, staff were very accommodating in making our special orders. Whilst some parts of the mountain are still under construction ( a French villa being renovated ino a boutique hotel and the residential areas being layed out that we saw) you can still appreciate the spectacular views. If you just want to relax you can do that here. You can visit the giant statue on the hill or the waterfalls. As I was there with my children we didn't go into the casino but we did check out the kids zone which was in final construction with plenty of arcade games for the kids. We drove down to Kep for a day visit which was approx an hour to the coast and a pleasant day trip from the hotel. I enjoyed a massage every day! You can enjoy a 20 minute foot massage for just $4 usd. Overall a nice trip and another interesting part of Cambodia that you may not have necessarily known about.
