For our last three nights in Siem Reap, we had a lovely stay at The Sarai Resort and Spa. All of the rooms overlook the tranquil courtyard, salt water pool. Our room had a king sized bed with a twin sized day bed. The bathroom had a large tub and rain shower as well. The bed was extremely comfortable and much needed after a full day tour of the temples.
With breakfast included, we were able to order it to the room every morning. It was really quite the way to start the day. The menu included traditional Cambodian soups and rice dishes as well as western style options. We also enjoyed massages at the spa, which we definitely recommend booking during your stay. They give 20% off of all spa offerings to guests staying at the resort.
We spent a decent amount of time by the pool, which has lounge chairs in the water and day beds along the sides. The day beds are covered areas with fans so you can escape from the hot sun and relax in comfort. The chef prepared a fixed menu meal for us pool side, which was amazing. We had spring rolls, sugar cane chicken and a fantastic dessert during one of our lazy days.
We felt that the staff was very attentive. Anything we needed they assisted with. Even if we just needed a tuk tuk to go to town, the concierge would ensure that someone would take us and not overcharge. Also, when the restaurant across the street was playing some louder music later in the evening, they were happy to quickly resolve the issue. They also helped to guide us with planning our excursions throughout the city and countryside. Finally, they booked our transportation from Siem Reap to Bangkok through Mekong Bus Company. This was a perfect place to celebrate Jessica’s Birthday!!
If you are looking for a great place to stay that is quiet and clean, this is the place for you! Next we are off to Thailand!!!
Follow your tummy…
