Anantara Angkor

The boy and I flew from Kuala Lumpur to Siem Reap in Cambodia for a total cost of £100 between us on Air Asia! Our hotel of choice for our one night stay was the Anantara Angkor.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. You will be welcomed with a cold towel and a refreshing drink and invited to relax in comfy seats whilst the check in process is completed. We had an upper level room with a little balcony including a table and chairs over looking the stunning pool area.

The room itself was gorgeous. We had a lounge area with large flat screen TV and a huge super king size bed. The bathroom had a beautiful roll top bath and separate soaking shower. The sink area was free standing and luxurious. We had a separate toilet and the best surprise was an outdoor rain forest shower, which I took full advantage of.

There were robes and slippers and beach bags and everything else you could think of had been provided even a variety of factor sun creams by the pool! The poolside and room service menu had all of the classics at very reasonable prices. 

The hotel provides a complementary tuk tuk service into the main center, which is available on request and takes around 10-15 mins. They will also provide a Cambodian mobile phone to arrange pick up with the driver on return. 

However, with out a doubt the best part of this hotel has to be the breakfast. The room is large and airy with tables very well spaced out. The breakfast is served a la carte and has everything you could wish for. A variety of juices, smoothies and hot drinks. A bread and pastry basket. Fresh fruit as well as cooked options such as waffles, pancakes or french toast. We also tried a breakfast bruschetta, which had tomatoes and scrambled egg with truffle oil on sourdough. This breakfast delight was also after we had devoured a breakfast box provided for our sun rise tour. This had orange juice, water, some fruit, pastries and boiled eggs included.

The hotel gave us free late check out until 7:30pm and is also located only a 15 mins drive to the airport. I cannot fault the lovely, friendly staff, the hotel rooms, the food or the ambiance. Yes, you are a little out of town but the fun tuk tuk ride makes up for this anyway and means everything is still convenient.

I would not hesitate to stay here and would recommend everyone to try this hotel when in Siem Reap.
