Borei Angkor Resort and Spa Review

Borei Angkor Resort and Spa Review

We immediately felt in touch with the #Cambodian #culture as soon as we entered the Borei Angkor resort. An extremely well presented 5* hotel, with incomparable customer service. I felt total #relaxation whilst exploring the gardens or sitting on our private terrace.


As soon as we walked into the lobby of the Borei Angkor Resort and Spa, we felt close to the culture and the enormous scale of historic Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Huge blocks the size of boulders make up the walls reaching up to a soaring ceiling, and the staff wear traditional Khmer attire. Despite the colossal aesthetic, we were greeted warmly and invited to take a seat on a comfortable sofa.

The staff were all insistent on asking our names and telling us their own, always pointing at their nametags for extra clarity. They helped bring a sense of warmth and hospitality to the property.

The Rooms

The rooms were warmer than the lobby and ours had a small balcony, but not much of a view. Warm wooden accents and teal pillows added character to the room.

For a more catered experience, book a room on the Privilege Floor. Benefits of this private level include separate check in and out, a club lounge and concierge services. Packages that include drivers and tours are also available for luxurious bespoke vacations.

The Grounds

We felt swallowed by the property as we made our way around in search of the pool and spa. Grand staircases in the front and a two-story-high sculpture of a flowering plant dwarfed us even more.

The Damnak lounge on the fourth floor has a small outdoor patio that overlooks the city. It doesn’t sound high, but no building is higher, so it is a great view of the surrounding are. At night, not much is lit up but it is still a nice vantage point and a pretty view during the day or at sunset.

The Food

The Borei has several dining and drinking options. We ordered room service for lunch and thought about enjoying our Croque Monsiuer — on our balcony until the heat drove us back inside.

Borei Resort offers a buffet dinner with choices of cuisine in all styles and a dessert table right at the front that is sure to draw you in. We ended up leaving the hotel for dinner, but it did look delicious and if you choose to dine here, there is certain to be something for everyone in your party.

For a complete dinner and entertainment experience, join culture Night on Thursdays in the outdoor are. The dinner package includes introductory cocktail hour with h’ors d’ourves and a seated dinner with a series of local dancing and music. During our stay a private event had taken over the evening, but we were able to catch a glimpse of what looks like a very fun night.

The staff made the experience at Borei Angkor, and our butler ensured that all our needs were taken care of. He arranged for a breakfast box and early check out for us since we left early the next morning to watch the sunrise over the temples of the Angkor Historic Park.
