We stayed 4 nights at the Sojourn in August 2011. I can't think of anything negative to say about this place!! We booked the 3-night Getaway and added an extra night. Included in the package were a private driver each day and night, breakfast (delicious!!!), a tour guide one day, a picnic lunch two days, a sunset picnic (wine, cheese and crackers, olives, etc, overlooking Angkor Wat), and one massage each. The package is more expensive than you can find in Siem Reap, but well worth it and still a bargain.
We were treated like royalty and called by name (although my husband laughed when they referred to him as "Stephanie"!). The staff is amazing and so, so friendly. I was extremely impressed by their kind attitudes towards guests, from the manager and driver to the waiters and massage staff. Having a private driver is such a bonus. The Sojourn provided us with a suggested itinerary but we were able to adapt and change it as we saw fit. It was so nice to not have to think about anything!!
The hotel is about a 15-minute drive from town (as another review said, don't get scared when the driver turns down a dirt road!), located next to a Cambodian village. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and there are only about 7 bungalows so it's all quiet and very private. The pool was great and had an underwater bar. The food here was the best we had in our 2 weeks in Cambodia and Thailand.
The rooms are luxurious. My only negative comment is that there is no luggage rack. The bathtub seats two easily and is filled up by water cascading down the granite wall behind the tub, like a waterfall. There is a huge indoor shower and a fantastic outdoor shower. Robes and slippers are provided. The bed was extremely comfortable and there were lounge chairs in the room, as well as an outdoor porch with a table and chairs.
We had a "destination dining" experience for my birthday and it is one of the most romantic things we've ever had. We had a private table over a lotus pond, lit by candles, with our own chef and waiter. Only one couple a night can book this experience and sitting there listening to frogs and other nightlife was an amazing experience. Check out their website for details and treat yourself!
