Outstanding in every way
Posted Sep 5, 2016
I had a feeling I would like this place. There seemed to be a number of nice hotels in Siem Reap, but the photos of the hotel's Art Deco style with its integration of all things Khmer had a warm appealing feel that compelled me more than colder, more formal feel of the others, so I went with it. Best decision ever. This place is incredible. In addition to being in a great location, the hotel houses an amazing restaurant that serves outstanding food and drinks (the daily breakfast buffet starts every day on the right foot) and sits right above the gorgeous and peaceful swimming pool. Anytime you go swimming or simply sit in a lounge chair, you're greeted with iced tea and snacks courtesy of the outgoing and remarkably friendly staff. And that is what really makes this place special: Every single person on the staff, from the busboys at the restaurant to the housekeeping staff to the front desk and management, engages you with a sincere desire to make your visit a happy one. It's actually unreal how kind and caring everyone was here. Everyone was so engaging in the most gentle way, asking you how your day was going if there was anything they could do for you, etc. It actually made leaving there hard because I'd felt as though after a week and a half that they were personal friends. I've never had an experience like it before. Eager to accommodate you in planning your daily activities, and pampering you constantly, this place goes beyond the expected.
