Known as the gateway to the ruins of Angkor, Siem Reap is a vibrant city that’s brimming with a delightful energy. Once the seat of the Khmer kingdom, this fascinating place sits within easy reach of Cambodia’s unrivaled displays of natural beauty and the ancient temples of Siem Reap Province. Sarai Resort & Spa provides a city-center getaway, near enough to the nightlife to take a dip in, should you want, but equally well placed for you to seek Siem Reap’s quieter side too.
A boutique, Moroccan-inspired resort in design, the hotel’s decked out with patterned tiles across the floors, latticed woods upon the walls and ornate arches framing the Cambodian vistas, inside and out. An inviting outdoor pool provides the place to be for a refresh from the day’s heat, or you can head to the spa area for an indulgent massage. The restaurant here follows the Moroccan theme in décor but not in menu; here, you can enjoy Southeast Asian specialties and remember the incredible place you already are.
Sarai Resort & Spa’s Gold Chamber guest rooms and suites are elegantly appointed, with dark woods, plush fabrics and sleek furnishings. Each comes complete with a pool view from a bay window.
Goat Tree Garden Restaurant offers a delectable menu of Southeast Asian cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The ambience here is refined, yet relaxed, with decorative arches, patterned-tile floors and dark woods, creating a decidedly Moroccan vibe.
Seasons Spa is a tranquil space with a Moroccan air to its design. You’ll find a range of treatments on offer that blend ancient techniques with natural products. While an hour or so away in a low-lit treatment room, as an expert therapist detangles those post-flight knots, before chilling out admit the patterned tiles of the relaxation room.
Sarai Resort & Spa is situated just a short stroll from Pub Street and the Old Market, which both offer a lively nightlife. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat is just 20 minutes away by car.
How to Get There
The Sarai - just a short tuk-tuk ride from Pub Street and the night market, worked extremely well for us.
We had two rooms, one for us and one for our children. The rooms were comfortable with a large window seat overlooking the pool.
Staff was always kind and courteous - including Dara, who helped us at check-in and check-out and our breakfast waiter Nip, who was discreetly at hand for an extra cup of coffee, or a plate of fresh fruit and yoghurt, always served with a smile.
The spa had wonderful staff too who made us feel very welcome, particularly Sreypov - so kind and sweet!
We were surprised by the standard of Accommodation for the price. It was beyond our expectation. In fact everything about our stay was fabulous. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. We would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to be out of the commercial district.
Very friendly staff that go out of their way to help. Great location which is only a short Tuktuk ride to Beer Street. Beautiful pool with shaded and sunny spots to sit. Comfortable beds and a gorgeous day bed overlooking the pool.
The hotel far exceeded my expectations before even arriving! Since I had a short stay, I was contacted about setting up any transportation, tours and activities immediately after booking. It was all set up for me when I arrived and I enjoyed a great sunrise adventure complete with packed picnic breakfast from the hotel. Everything was pretty consistent during my stay - attentive service (staff will contact you throughout your stay to ensure they are meeting your expectations), friendly and helpful staff, comfortable amenities, easy transport (hotel has a number of tuk tuks right outside of the property that are always readily available). I would definitely stay here again on my next visit.
Very good location, not too out in the main street so it is quiet, but not far away from the main attractions either (less than 15 minute walk to pub street, normal tuk tuk ride to the temples).
Beautiful property also; room is always well maintained. One downside may be that the smallest of rooms for two people may be too small for larger adults.
Staff is extremely professional and are there to make you happy from check in to check out.
Had a minor issue arise with laundry damaging clothing, but staff took this very seriously and managed the issue with great satisfaction.
Not the cheapest of places in Cambodia, but still great value compared to Western destinations and you also get more than what you pay for here!
