Pavillion Indochine

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Located well out of Siem Reap, down a dirt path off the back road to Angkor Wat (which used to be the main road when the early French archaeologists and historians were knocking about here), this French-run place has a lovely little garden setting and 19 clean rooms with low, soft beds and stylish, modern decor as well as spotless, if small, bathrooms.

Floors are made of teak, and the whole place is distinctly modelled after French-Khmer design, with old posters and maps evoking a bygone age. If you think you’d like to stay at Belmond La Residence D’Angkor but don’t want to spring for it, this is a fine, bargain alternative.

Former guests throw around words like oasis when referring to the hotel’s atmosphere, and they’re not far off. A large, vaulted wooden, traditional style restaurant where we hear fantastic food, included complimentary breakfast, is served abuts a mid-sized swimming pool surrounded by lounge chairs and palms. Each room has a private, cordoned-off spot on the long wooden deck surrounding the pool with its own chairs and table, a perfect spot for breakfast in the morning or a cooling cocktail in the evening. There are also two family suites and two bungalow suites, with private terraces.

The main issue is that while you’re very close to Angkor, you’re quite a way from everything else, so you’ll be getting to and from town by tuk tuk. However, day-long tuk tuk transport to the parks and to town are now included in the price, which sweetens the deal. It’s a savvy move on behalf of the hotel’s managers, because it really negates the one major drawback — having to pay to get to the restaurants and shops in town. Not anymore. Pavillon represents extremely good value for the money.

The prices below are the base and premium prices (excluding Christmas/New Year when an additional $10 should be added to the high season rate). They may vary, and may be negotiable depending upon occupancy. Recommended.
