Historical Traveler Reviews Sokha Angkor Resort Siem Reap
Amazing, great hotel!
Best hotel of our stay in SE Asia... very reasonably priced. The rooms have great beds (Hollywood style - huge!). Bathrooms are nice... The appointments are new... they're not flashy, but they at least feel somewhat local in terms of flavour and colour.
Staff was most helpful. The pool is lovely and quite relaxing. An OK spa too.
Breakfast was good. But, do not recommend the room service or other restos there for lunch or dinner: all a bit too greasy and gross.
Great location too, which is centrally in-between Angkor Wat and downtown Siem Reap (and "Bar St."). Many of the newer hotels are farther away... but this was has a great spot on the main strips.
Very nice hotel!
This hotel is only a year old and seems to be doing fine (stained hall carpets aside). Very comfortable beds with good linens (i.e., duvets with covers rather than thin wool blankets), very nice bathrooms. Good location - walking distance to in-town excitement, but in a quiet location on the temple side of town, so the trip into the park is short and easy. If we return to Siem Reap, we would stay at the Sokha Angkor again. Breakfast is fine. Friendly service. The pool is beautiful and very well-maintained. A great hotel to come back to after a day exploring the temples!
Very comfortable, convenient
We were a group of 5 adults aand two young children (2 families) and spent 4 nights at the Sokha Angkor. It is a relatively new Hotel. The hotel was able to accommodate us in the Executive Suite which had two bedrooms (I think they opened out the connecting door of the adjoining room following our request for 2 bedrooms), one living room with attached loo and a kitchen area-all very useful when travelling with young children. The rooms were spacious. Though the accommodation was not cheap, it is possible cheaper than other hotels of a similar standard. The staff were quite courteous. buffet breakfast was very nice-even for us vegetarians. One of the guides that the hotel put us onto was quite informative and helpful. The hotel can arrange for an air conditioned carfor about 35-40US$ per day with a driver. The location of the hotel is fine and reasonably close to the main tourist shopping area.
At the Top
Among the many hotels competing in the Siem Riep market Skoha is there with the best. Masses of wood but very well appointed. Club suite is a generous size with large flat screen, music, DVD etc. Enormous bed and excellent size bathroom with what looks at first to be a jacuzzi bath is instead a very large tub in terrazzo. Staff are attentive and offer service to Bangok etc standard. Only had the breakfast which was plenty and didn't try other meals. Centrally located for town and a 5 minute walk to what is becoming the main "tourist" street with bars and restaurants. Not sure where the average room price comes from on Tripadvisor but actual cost is no where near it. Well worth staying.
Wonderful 5* Hotel
We stopped at the Sokha as part of an overland tour to Angkor Wat whilst on a Princess Cruise.
It was a super hotel.
We were greeted by a band and dancers, our room was excellent and the public rooms beautiful.
The service was first class, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel laid on a buffet and show on one night and the table decorations and food were really stunning.
All this and reasonable bar prices!
Super hotel. An oasis
We stayed at the Sokha in September 2006 as part of a tour group. It was a short stay but fantastic. The pool area is stunning and the rooms are very large and beautifully appointed.
The restaurant offers a vast buffet of which everything we tried was delicious. Not to be missed in Siem reip
More than a Five Star Hotel
I have recently spent a week in Sokha Angkor Hotel in Siem Reap attending training seminar and conference. Although only about six months in operation, Sokha Angkor has surpassed my expectation for a five star hotel in all fronts. The room was well appointed and very comfortable with all amenities (I stayed in a superior room, less expensive than a deluxe room). Staff were very attentive, freindly and accommodating. Buffet breakfast and lunch were offerred with a lot of choices and were quite tasty. Japanese restaurant was good. There was also a great band playing excellent music in the Irish pub. All in all, a great hotel for any occasions !!
This 3 month old hotel is fantastic! It truly is a 5 star luxury hotel with matching service. I had stayed at Le Meridien Angkor which looks like a Holidy Inn compared to Sokha. The staff are friendly and prompt. The rooms are spacious with deluxe rooms having a balcony overlooking the pool. The pools is nice with a large waterfall cascading down into one end. The other end is a shallow child's wading pool. The restaurants are excellent. The Japanese restaurant is pricy and tasty. The breakfast buffet is large with omelet, waffles and noodle stations. It was great! We had 2 servers for our meals so we never had empty water glasses and our plates were promptly removed.
I will definitely stay here again. I hope to someday visit their sister hotels in Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh (under construction presently).
Amazing 5* Hotel
Came to the resort with unsure expectations after staying at their sister hotel in sihanoukville, cambodia. From the moment the driver met us at the airport with a smile, a cold cloth and a bottle of cold water, our experience with this hotel far exceeded our expectations .... this is truly a 5* hotel. The service is absolutely amazing, hotel standards are very high, good selection of restaurants (good prices), rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. A very nice pool with spa and gym comes in handy after a full day at the Angkor Wat Temples. The hotel was great with taking care of all details and providing us with a private guide and driver which made the trip more memorable. Unfortunately, we only stayed for 2 nights .. wish we stayed for more. The cambodian (khmer) people in siem reap were truly friendly, trustworthy, and genuine. Would highly recommed this hotel. The hotel is still very new(opened in dec'05) so it's a good time to go now as rates are bound to increase ... a comparable hotel would cost double in siem reap.

... footwear. I had spotted the tent on our way out this morning and saw the familiar blue and gold of our World Champion Golden State Warriors. We felt so fortunate to see four of the six championship games while we were in Chiang Mai. We figured somewhere in SE Asia they must be making the NBA gear. We vowed to have a jersey or tee shirt handmade if we couldn't find any. So we were able to acquire an authentic Stephen Curry jersey for just ...
Last night I left Siem Reap and cried three separate times, saying goodbye to the other volunteers and the place that has been my home for the past two months. My dad sent me the following quote, ' be careful because Cambodia is the most dangerous country you will ever visit, you will fall in love with it and one day it will break your heart', there is no better way to describe my feelings. I am in love with this place and the people I've met. Before coming travelling ...
... when do they even have time to do that? They are busy trying to provide for their families. This country really challenges your thought process and really lets you value what you have, down to the simplest of items. We then decided to rent bicycles from the hotel to head back to Angkor Wat to see a few temples we didn't see yesterday. The bikes are $2/day and are very...weathered. No gears. Came with a bell, a lock, two brakes, two pedals, two wheels, and ...
In 800 years time when archeologists discover the ancient ruins of Siem Reap, they will most likely attribute the number of penises drawn on walls to some sort of deep and religious meaning. The truth is, as we all know, too many men like to draw penises. Tonight we visited 'Angkor What?', this is slightly different from Angkor Wat in that it is designed primarily for the worshipping of alcohol, the walls are neon ...
My main purpose for visiting Cambodia was to go Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples and wow what a place. How on earth they were built and carved so delicately amazes me. I hired a private guide and tuk tuk driver to take me around. We met at 4am in the morning, so a particularly early start considering sunrise wasn't until 6am, but the early start was needed when ...
