La Villa Loti Coconut House
A terrific family option
What we say:
Taking its name from the pseudonym of a famous French writer and orientalist, La Villa Loti is a great hidden-way little spot just beside the Siem Reap River. It only has eight rooms, so in season a reservation is a very good idea. Set in a new wooden building built in the traditional style, the rooms are very tasteful, with the upstairs ones being all wooden and particularly fine. The upstairs area also has an excellent shaded veranda with hammocks, mats, cushions and pillows, making it a great spot to recover from a day of temple climbing. While the staff can be very friendly and welcoming, not all of them speak a lot of English. The traditional style restaurant is in the garden, beside a very lovely pool, and serves a mixed menu of Khmer and Western food, and the owner is particularly proud of his Thai-trained chef. Room rates have climbed a bit and it's not the great bargain it once was, but they do include pick-up from the airport, ferry or bus station. This is a good option for families looking to get away from the busier part of town. Recommended.

Pretty and Authentic...but
To be fair, it was a few years ago that I stayed here. After researching places online, it just seemed right at the time. It was beautiful and very well done. I booked at least 3 months in advance for a deluxe room. When I checked in, I was very pleased with my decision. The room was on the 2nd floor and lovely. It had been a very long day and I was pretty tired. I used one of the hotel's bikes and went for a quiet lunch at a restaurant around the corner. It's a very low-key neighborhood. The hotel is behind the river and a bit far from town, closer to the ruins. If you are looking for something very quiet and removed this is a good choice though. I had two problems. The hotel woke me up fairly early, requesting that I move rooms. I've never had that happen. I had already unpacked everything and had to pack it up again. Inconvenient, especially when I had booked in advance. Anyway, I had wanted to get an early start to Angkor and it ended up be a longer process than it should have been. While the staff were nice enough, I just felt displaced. I decided to move hotels. I went from $40 or so to $165 at Angkor Village (very nice by the way). Anyway, that's not the real problem. NO POOL! I knew that going in and I thought I wouldn't need one. Big mistake... for me. After a long day at the ruins, the pool is just the sort of thing you might wish for. While this place will give you the real feeling of being in a different world and for the money, it's a decent value, I think that there are better choices if you want to have convenience and some amenities. I'm going back in October, and I think I will try Golden Banana based on reviews here.
