Dinning Experience at the Villa
We will not show you an extensive touring menu. We will not take you to the Small or Grand Circuit like everybody else. Instead, our tour masters with over a decade long experience in the area will discuss your wishes with you and design a bespoke, tailor made tour for you. With us it’s all about experiences rather than ticking the boxes of “should sees” and rushing from site to site. It’s also about knowing the best time to be at certain spots and how to navigate areas with (too) many visitors. The splendour of Angkor should be appreciated slowly and with us you are in the perfect hands.
Intrigued? With every confirmed booking we will send a sample of our tours as a taster of things to come and all your touring can either be designed upon your arrival or before. During the high season (November – February) we recommend that we assign a knowledgeable guide for you as well as vehicle with a dedicated driver, the touring element can be refined later.
In the peak season tour guides do indeed get booked up and we may not have enough reserves for last minute requests.
Siem Reap, however, is not all just about the temples. There are plethora of things to keep you occupied and entertained. Whether you wish to enjoy a relaxing massage, explore the picturesque countryside, visit the floating and stilted communities of the Tonle Sap lake, pay a visit to the Phare Circus or learn how to spin your own tea pot, we have all the necessary contacts in our directory. Please spend a few minutes with our concierge staff who will be happy to recommend activities fitting your requirements.
