Food & Beverage + + +
Tror Kuon Restaurant has a menu of western and local favourites, and probably serves the most authentic Khmer dishes (for a hotel) in town. We absolutely love the homemade breads, especially Moringa bread. Sunsets are greatly cherished at Skybar, a rooftop bar with a westward view that serves Siem Reap's best cocktails and most delicious bar grubs.
Spa & Wellness + + +
An outstanding boutique hotel that blends the best of decor accents old and new, this resplendently sumptuous property is setting new heights for luxury hotels in Siem Reap with its outstanding earth hugging conservation concepts. Riverpark Spa may be a tad small and basic, but the massages here are well rendered.
Service + + +
The service extended by the staff here is good as gold and would exceed even royal expectations. Walk through the entrance and it's a chorus of warm greetings with an offer of welcome drinks, or beer, depending on the time of the day. Upon check-in complimentary washing service is quickly offered and expediently returned barely 12 hours later. Guests can expect to find attention readily lavished upon them at any spot within this hotel.
Design + + +
This contemporary stunner exudes both the sophistication of an luxury hotel and the warmth of a familial dwelling. Fascinating old world accoutrements inhabit the bright open spaces whilst the roomy suites are skillfully crafted with modern aspects through Khmer sandstone flooring and rich teak wood details. A lavish hit of fabulous flora envelope the entire property; a balcony view fringed by palm fronds is an inspired touch.
