Our favourite place ever!

We have never enjoyed a place to stay – anywhere we have travelled – more than Maison Polanka. This is like staying in someone’s home – or the home you might dream about having one day. With large, beautiful gardens and an elegant swimming pool, but only a handful of rooms so it’s very peaceful never feels crowded even with other guests around. We also had the best Cambodian food of our trip in their restaurant, which is really just a few tables outside by the pool, but outshone anywhere else we ate. Off menu, they were kind enough to make a special noodle soup (nom banh chok) one day for us for lunch – it was delicious and worth making a special request for (in advance). We stayed in the Khmer House as a treat, and it was beautiful and spacious, though I think anyone would be happy with any of the rooms they have. But the best part of Maison Polanka are the people who work there who are warm, welcoming and willing to help with everything, from tour planning, surprise afternoon cakes by the pool, and a wonderfully memorable trip to the Road 60 night market for a dinner of insects, stuffed frogs and other more familiar foods! Our thanks in particular to Cathy, Chan, and Vong! Don’t bother looking anywhere else in Siem Reap, just stay here!
