My wife booked us for long weekend holiday to Siem Reap. There are certainly lower priced options. Slightly quirky including vintage vehicle transfer from airport. It was a 1968 Mercedes which had seen better days but charming nonetheless. Service was sincere, attentive and charming. Room was nicely appointed but slightly awkward setup for couple with teenage daughter. For cpuples itvwoukd be easier. Rollaway bed was not cheap but setup when we arrived. Minor issues like power outage and dead telephone were quickly resolved. Had one lunch, 2 breakfast and drinks in restaurant. Certainly cheaper outside but good service and great food/wine made it worthwhile. Lots of other great reviews. Add mine to the list.
MesaStila: "one of the best"
I have traveled extensively all over the world and this is probably one of the most amazing 'hotels' ever. Each room is it's own private house, a house that was bought somewhere in Java and moved to the property and then carefully renovated and modernized. Amazing. Property is just beautiful and the pool and spa area perfect. Nice touches like free afternoon tea with enough food that one has to think about not eating too much. People so nice and courteous.
Mie Cafe: "Very good food"
I just come Back from this lovely, precious ,romantic restaurant in siem reap. Shame I was dining alone as I am a solo traveler. I would recommend for a lovely romantic dinner ! Definitely a honey moon destination if you are visiting Angkor wat and stay in siem reap!!! The food was extremely tasty and well presented. I even had the chef coming at my table asking how it is going!!! I highly recommend it!!
Locavore: "good ambience. innovatively tasty"
had the vegetarian option. was bowled over by the like of hibiscus flower and forest ferns. Hadnt expected them to be tasty! Also enjoyed the complimentary pre-main-event "appetizers" which filled me!
RACHAMANKHA: "This place is so blessed and amazing…and more"
"The #1 TripAdvisor hotel at the time of our visit, this was the most unique of our 8 hotels in all of SE Asia. The Chinese influence in the architecture makes this place stupendous!The room!
The common areas!
The service!I could go on and on...This place is so glorious and fabulous...one day, we would love to go back!"
The Island Lodge: "A dream spot in the Mekong Delta"
"Are you looking for a 6 star hotel in the Mekong Delta? You just found it! Nothing needs improvement. From the first minute we arrived a the hotel till the very last moment all was a dream of a hotel. Service excellent, rooms amassing, restaurant outstanding....
Nothing else to say. A must see and enjoy hotel!!!!"
I only stayed 1 night this time around but I really wanted to go back as I was in the area again. Once you enter the gate, you are in a secluded area, although the main road is just behind. The peacefulness that emanates from the grounds forces you to switch off. Not much to do at the property but that's the whole point: listen to nature around you, watch the life on the Mekong and just relax!!
"This is a beautiful, wonderful oasis. Every single detail has been thought through in this serene, beautiful place. It whispers luxury, but - as a welcome change - doesn't shout it. I want to package it all up, and take it home!We lived in China for many, many years, and being here felt like coming 'home', only better. The Rachamankha has the ambience of a very old Chinese courtyard home/hotel, but with the convenience of a new one. I thought it WAS old, but learned that it was built in only 2004! The ornamentation (spectacular screen doors, statuary in every courtyard) is all old, though. And stunningly beautiful. You will also see a smattering of gorgeous Thai antiques adorning the walls and public areas.Don't miss the library. Or the pool. Or the outdoor, covered 'lobby' lounge area. The only disappointing thing about this lovely spot is that you have to leave it to explore the many attractions of Chiang Mai. But they're all close, and you've got this oasis to return to at the end of your day.Oh, and (I almost forgot to mention, because it really goes without saying) the service is wonderful -- unobtrusive, attentive, and friendly. Sigh. We're checking out this morning.....Enjoy!"
We were quite happy to be able to get a last-minute reservation to David’s Kitchen. When we arrived, we were greeted by David, who asked about our trip and travels. Our table was waiting, complete with a table tent that had our names, showing that reservations are a priority. The service was some of the best we’ve ever received— there were multiple servers in the dining room ensuring that all guests had everything they wanted, and David also stopped by our table after the meal. The food was delicious, as is to be expected. The wine list was broad and the ones we tried were perfect with our dinner. This restaurant was truly the epitome of too-notch customer service— we’d absolutely come back.
Rachamankha: "Paradise in Old City, Chiangmai"
A surprise paradise tucked on side street close to Temples and entrance to Sunday Market. Peaceful, elegant atmosphere. Top notch service - especially in restaurant. Dinner was terrific. Breakfast: loved the almond French toast!
