The River Garden Hotel Siem Reap Reviews
Hidden away jungle pool just out of town Mar 22, 2012
After a day of the temples there is nothing better than to unwind your achy limbs at the River Garden.
Deborah, Graham and all the staff here make you feel so welcome and it honestly was my little bit of heaven whilst staying in Siem Reap.
Again, I can't comment on the accommodation as I didn't actually stay here but if it's as perfect as the service and the staff then you can't go wrong. You only have to take a look at the website photos of the rooms to see how nice this place actually is.
It's just out of the hustle and bustle of the town so you really feel like you are escaping it but it's close enough that it doesn't feel like a mission to get there.
They welcome guests to come and use the pool free of charge but the food and drinks are so good here that it's hard to resist the urge to try one of their amazing cocktails which are on happy hour at the weekend and 2 for 1! You really must try one of the Apple or Passion Fruit Mojitos and I've been told the Pineapple and Chilli Margarita is one to try also. They have a mouthwatering selection of cakes and desserts to try as well.
The pool is a salt water pool and it's the best thing after either a day at the temples or just to escape the heat. They have both a shallow end for the children and for the real kids at heart they also have floating animals and noodles which makes for great entertainment. We have named them also - there are 2 Gromits, Puff the pink dragon, Bob the yellow dragon, Horny the reindeer. It's hard not to give them names when you are there nearly every day for 5 weeks!
They have some shaded little seating areas around the edge for you to relax in if you want to stay out of the sun along with many loungers to soak up the sun.
The staff are so friendly and always smiling and will bring your drinks and food to your seats. If you are there in the later part of the afternoon (around 4 o'clock) then you can enjoy a cup of proper English tea with a homemade biscuit.
This was honestly my little bit of heaven whilst staying in Siem Reap and it's just one of the places that needs to be known about! If you head there please say that I said hello!
