3.2km from 1000 Buddhas GalleryLOCATION Situated halfway between Angor Wat and Siem Reap, this sleepy resort is on a gravel road near a main road. Remotely located, there are some local businesses or residential areas nearby, but nothing orientated to tourists. We chose this accommodation for accessibility to Angor Wat and then moved to town the next day. NO LOBBY There is no lobby. That’s the problem. The “reception” desk is the counter for the dining area. Presentation of the resort is therefore poor, as the lobby is an important area which serves to give a first and lasting impression of the resort, usually with some couches, sofas or chairs for guests to relax. The pool looked ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR, but we had no time to enjoy it. ROOM Rooms are spacious, comfortable and divine! The bed was large and comfortable and having 2 washbasins added to the luxury. The extra third basin in the room would have residual water accumulating in the basin attributed to a design flaw. The bathroom is MASSIVE and the walls are immaculately smothered down so smoothly that the owner deserves special mention. The stone bath reminded me of the sarcophagus I saw at the pyramids, and can easily accommodate 2 people. However, the towels used were of poor quality and thin. Secondly, they use solar power for heating at the resort, and when we returned at 9pm, there was only a little warm water left over, so we had cold baths. Not a comfortable experience. The wardrobe closet is MASSIVE with surplus storage room that one can probably put furniture inside. If bathrobes and slippers were provided, the experience would be escalated and even more delightful and lavish! BREAKFAST 3 options of American, continental and vegetarian on offer. It was simple and filling. STAFF Courteous and polite TOUR Note that because the resort is in a remote area, there are no tuk-tuks on standby. All transportation and tours must be pre-arranged. After picking us up from the bus station, we negotiated a evening tour with the tuk-tuk driver and a full day tour with another driver the next day beginning at 5am for sunrise. In retrospect, I would not begin the tour at 5am, since the temples are only about 4km away and we spent a lot of time in the dark waiting. I would suggest getting more shut-eye and getting picked up 5:30am, or even later. The “standard” sunrise tour starts 5am. SUMMARY Stayed here for Angor Wat sunrise accessibility. With only 8 bungalows, this resort offers privacy, peace and pleasure. Otherwise Siem Reap city is more convenient for the traveler. PROS: washing machine was a bonus and there were no mosquitoes on our visit!
