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 hotel is well situated approx 20 minutes drive from the airport and a 2 minute tuktuk ride to Pubstreet and the night market (approx. 10 minute walk). The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. From the pool, to the rooms, to the restaurant and spa. Everything was great. Highly recommend going for a spa trip - it’s located inside the hotel and is very relaxing and cost effective. The properties immediately surrounding the hotel appear to be more rustic than the hotel itself, but my girlfriend and I had no problem or fears walking around after sundown. Other than the hotel itself, the service staff are absolutely incredible and are the real standout feature here. Axel, Thong, and Pawn (sorry about the spelling! He was our driver for both our private tour of Angkor and to the airport at our departure) provided A1 service and somehow also managed to remember us by name and greeted us every time they saw us. If you’re making a trip to Siem Reap and are looking for an affordable and best in class experience, look no further!
This was our base for 3 nights while we did an Angkor Wat visit and learned about the life of local Kymer people. Although we paid close to western prices, we were very comfortable; food is good quality (eggs benedict at breakfast to die for!) and the staff go the extra mile to make sure you have whatever you need. highly recommended.
I was very impressed with the hotel, specifically the lobby and pool area, which was stunning. The staff, particularly the Reception/Front office staff were very friendly and helpful. The staff also had very good command of english which made things very easy. This team definitely made my stay. Big thank you to Philip, who did a wonderful job. If i was to find a criticism it would be breakfast and the rooms probably need a little freshen up- but having said that they were very good rooms!
I love this hotel! It’s not very big but the building is beautiful. The swimming is nice and great to take pictures with lol. The staffs are super helpful and sweet. They even packed the breakfast for us in early morning when we had a sunrise tour. Highly appreciate the staffs there!
The hotel is not far from old market, so it’s convenient to go shopping and get food from hotel. US2 for the ride. The breakfast is cool there. You can have buffet and also order the English/ Cambodian breakfast.
All in all, highly recommended you guys stay in this hotel!
We have traveled in all parts of this beautiful country for a month. Sarai is very beautiful but their best asset is their staff. Someone has trained these people correctly. It was the best in the WHOLE country. Really felt pampered!
