Coming to Cambodia for a vacation we decided to choose the Golden Temple Retreat based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed (which is an understatement)... this hotel was... read more amazing down to it’s last detail! Prior to arrival we were in constant contact with the hotel organising spa treatments and tours of the temples etc, they responded quickly and it only heightened our excitement to stay here. We were picked up expeditiously from the airport and greeted with cold water and cold towels (which are such a great idea!!), we then we welcomed inside the hotel with cold iced tea, sticky rice and fruit. All the staff were amazing bringing drinks to the pool (which was just an amazing clear and refreshing pool that you actually want to sit around) and asking if there was anything that we needed. The service in this place was just amazing, you definitely would never see this level of service at hotels in Australia!
I know that there is a downturn at the moment in travel, but the staff were just amazing, I was eager to learn the language and they took the time to teach me, which they didn’t have to, and this was just great - special thanks go to Southea and Huor for there help here ☺️.
The spa is also incredible and very affordable, so definitely take the time to enjoy a relaxing massage if you can!
I could go on about really how great this place is - but why not be surprised and check it out for yourself!!!
Thanks again Golden Temple Retreat! We hope to be back next year for sure!!!!!
We really enjoyed our stay here and whilst the facilities and amenities were excellent the staff bizarrely were a little over attentive for our liking. Whilst they were courteous,... read more some were very over keen to engage when we were just trying to enjoy the tranquility of the hotel. We appreciate it is a careful balance, but overall we felt that a better balance should be made. That all said we were very pleased with our stay which was unfortunately just as the COVID-19 concerns were peaking in the region,so everyone was a little tense anyway.
We had a lovely stay at this hotel for 4 nights. The manager Mr Sim is great and remembers everyone’s name . Attention to detail is good and all staff... read more in every area of hotel really attentive. A special mention must go to little Emily who collected us from the airport with a cheery smile and nice cold towel . Hotel near enough to pub street ( about 10 min walk ) without all the noise Would definitely stay here again. Thank you ‘golden retreat’a lovely way to begin our holiday
