This is truly a wonderful hotel, very, very relaxing, peaceful and beautiful. We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of May 2014, at the end of a 2 week tour of Cambodia. The staff are all very kind and helpful; I have never known such un-obtrusive housekeeping staff. Rooms are serviced morning and night, but you never see anyone doing it. We ate in the Strand on our first night there - wow, the food was Michelin star standard! And we were given a private table facing the sea, lit by candles (actually could have done with a few more, it was a bit difficult to see what we were eating!).
I had a back, neck and shoulder massage in the Spa whilst there - probably the best I have ever had, and the therapist was extremely professional and kind, despite not speaking a word of English.
Our room was amazing (Room 6) - probably best on the property, so beautiful.
Only slight criticisms - this was the only hotel in our 2 plus weeks in Thailand and Cambodia that did not provide Tea and Coffee making facilities in the rooms. Nor was room service available before 7am, so for early risers like myself, who do not function until after the first cup of tea - be warned or prepared. I was also more than slightly irked by the behaviour of 2 other guests in 'bagging' one of the 2 day beds on the lawn, three days in succession, (as early as 7.30am) and then disappearing off the property for hours (including going sailing). Very difficult to deal with I know, but I think the management should perhaps be aware that this is happening and have a quiet word that this is not acceptable to the majority of guests there.
