A summary of where we are and what we do best.

Situated in a local village area the village community and activities that support it surround us including a vibrant and interesting local market and many local businesses and places of interest.

The Siem Reap river fronts the hotel and the road that follows it is the ancient river road used for centuries to get to Angkor Wat and the city Angkor Thom.

The Puppies
The Puppies, Cambodia (Guest Relations)

The Puppies, Honey and Treacle, are a precious addition to the hotel. They are the sweetest dogs in Siem Reap.


We believe in giving back to the community. Learn how our guests help us to do this.

We strive to make your experience with us enjoyable and enlightening.

This is achieved with many of the touches that are evident around the hotel……maybe you smiled when you read all the placemats in the restaurant. Possibly you delighted in feeding the fish with your own pot of fish food whilst the puppies stood by watching or was it the carefully seasoned food that flows out of the kitchen………………hopefully you’ll tell US.
