Rambutan Resort & Spa, Home Away From Home – Siem Reap, Cambodia

20476165_10213318310542754_6760048368256422005_nThe Rambutan Resort in Siem Reap is located in a quiet residential area, yet walking distance from the Old Market, Pub Street and other places to find local food, nice restaurants, bars and, of course, shopping.
The Rambutan Hotel & Resort, Siem Reap (formerly Golden Banana Boutique Hotel & Resort), comprises two properties, a mere 50 meters apart, in a quiet paved lane just 5 minutes walk from Phsar Cha (the old market), in the historical centre of Siem Reap town.

It’s a one bedroom, one bathroom, two-story apartment, fully-equipped kitchen, living area with two sofa beds, and a bridge that connects the bedroom to a private balcony and my roof top. Well, it felt like mine:)
Rambutan Resort – Siem Reap – caters for the independent traveler who wants some privacy and luxury during their stay in the city of Angkor.

Each property has its own lush tropical garden, swimming pool and restaurant, which are available to guests of both properties. The accommodation focuses on comfort and privacy, with all Deluxe Suites and Villas have their own balcony or terrace with outdoor bathtub and splash shower.

From single level Khmer style suites with spacious lounging balconies to our two story villas with their own private rooftop terrace, Rambutan Resort has something for everyone.

The restaurant provided me with a take-away breakfast at 4:00am for my sunrise trip to the Angkor Wat temples. When I asked their help to find me a ‘tuk-tuk,’ transport, within seconds it was ready.

Wine and dine in-house, as we have an excellent chef serving you a delicious selection of Eastern and Western dishes. Our pool Bar is open from 1pm until 10pm, offering a varied selection of great wines, local & international beers, and house infused signature cocktails, all with a welcoming smile.
