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.

... not eating much the last couple of days, and when we went out to eat I ordered some spring rolls to go with whatever I ordered. I also ended up eating Susie's leftovers. Fat pig! The German girl from our night bus stopped and had a chat, followed by a Kiwi guy she met on her bus from Pakse to Don Det. He was a bit of a character. We chilled out for the rest of the day, then went for a couple of drinks before dinner. We went to an Indian that wasn't that good, but it did the ...
... of inner hallways and outer grounds that offer space for quiet reflection or "passive scrying" as one of my favorite character's refers to it. You empty your mind, allow your feet to wander, and you always end up at something magical. With my responsible traveler duties done for the day, I head back to town to eat more and get drunk with my new friends. Soul train treats me right once more, and then we end up at the Canadian/New Yorker's ...
... settled for a restaurant that had fewer people in and also sold the local specialities. Helen had the Fish Amok and I had the Beef Lok Lak. They were both very tasty and due to it being happy hour both only cost $2.75. Bargain. We then had a wander round the streets before heading back for an early night. Our final two days of sightseeing would be long ...
So much for my theory on weekends - yesterday morning the music was blaring by 5:30 am! One of our neighbours says even his earplugs don't help when it's that loud. Oh well, it is wedding season here, and the funerals and death anniversary celebrations are frequent too. After work yesterday, we went down to the little market near Grace House. While we meandered around the market, one of the Grace House teachers who happened to be there too asked what we were wanting to cook. We ...
... one place at one time. The sun comes up to the left of the temple first at this time of the year. Because I had walked up that side I could see that was going to happen and had wandered that direction to get a picture from the back. Most of the people were still out around the ponds. All of the sudden one of the Korean tour guides raised her flag on a stick and yelled to try and signal to her small group to come up onto the plaza to see the sun peeking thru the left ...
