Heart of Wonder Countryside Resort is located in Siem Reap. The accommodations features a 24-hour front desk as well as free WiFi. I've visited Siem Reap several times, it's such a charming little city, almost a big village! I accompanied a friend on this occasion on a short weekend trip to the temples. We wanted somewhere close to the airport and to the temples to make the most of our limited time. We'd had our fair share of drinking buckets to the early hours on Khao San Road, Bangkok and wanted to be away from the main backpacker scene to get a good night's sleep for our 5am start to watch the sun rising over Angkor Wat. I was surprised to find very few countryside options that suited our mid range budget, but this place seemed to fit the bill. It had only been open a couple of days when we arrived and the staff and owners we're brimming with enthusiasm and excitement to greet us. They were incredibly kind and sweet, a mixture of locally employed Khmer staff and the business owners, an European and Thai-Chinese couple, who also run another boutique hotel in South East Asia. The traditional Khmer house built of wood and marble was wonderful but the location was the main attraction. Sipping cocktails on the upper floor balcony watching the local people walking through the countryside with their buffalo and the rice farmers finishing their work for the day against dramatic skies is a cherished memory. The owners have gone to great lengths to make the property an authentic Khmer experience, from the food, drinks, furniture and staff uniforms! The next time I'm in Koh Samui or Phuket and I hear another whinging farang saying that I wish I was in Thailand forty years ago before it became a tourist trap, I will recommend them to stay at the Heart of Wonder, because this is Thailand forty years ago, completely unspoilt by mass tourism for less than half the price! I wish the owners the very best of luck in their new venture :)
Sun Boutique Resort & Restaurant has an outdoor pool and villas with free WiFi. Located in the countryside, the property has a garden and provides free private parking. I was met at the airport by a tuk tuk driver displaying my name on a sign, this was a pleasant surprise after my traveling; he'd been sent by the resort owner 'Sun' to bring me back to the hotel following my 'airport shuttle' inquiry. Sun speaks very good English and nothing was too much bother for her or the staff. It is a lovely family run business and the resort is very clean, tranquil and modern. My 'villa' was everything I could have asked for and the pool was just perfect. The location of the resort was ideal for me because it is a few KM away from the busy town centre. It was my third time visiting Siem Reap in four years. The Cambodian people are lovely and certainly know how to party in the town centre to welcome in the New Year!
Located in the city of Siem Reap, AMATAO Tropical Residence features an outdoor swimming pool, lush greeneries and suites with a blend of French colonial and native Khmer décor. My family was absolutely thrilled with our stay at Amatao. Before we arrived, I was a little bit worried about bringing our children because the place looks a bit like a romantic getaway spot rather than a family spot, but my worries were unfounded. Our kids were welcome and had an amazing time. The property is beautifully landscaped and well-kept with a lot of interesting spots to sit and read a book or have a drink. Our rooms were also very stylish and comfortable. The staff was, by far, Amatao's best feature. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The meals were delicious and we were especially happy with our tuk tuk driver Mr. Long. We had everything we could possibly wish for, and we're looking forward to visiting again.
Featuring traditional Khmer-style architecture of wood and bricks, Villas Kamboja offers private accommodations in Phumĭ Kruŏs, away from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap. Our host Romain was perfect. He made sure we had everything we needed, arranged our transportation and made us feel at home. I would recommend this villa to anyone.
