Spent 3 nights at the Tradition d'Angkor with their "Massage treatment package" costing USD 168, which included: 3 nights stay in Deluxe Room, breakfasts, round trip airport transfer, two hours spa treatment, one dinner for two, welcome drink (some refreshing coconut water) & tropical fruits upon arrival.
Since we were arriving from Phnom Penh, we requested pick-up from the bus station instead of the airport. We are glad we did, because the bus 'station' is in the middle of nowhere and one would not want to linger for too long over there at night.
Our room was big, comfortable and decorated in traditional style. A fruit platter was waiting for us. Only negatives were: 1. Housekeeping had forgotten to remove trash from the previous occupants, 2.the room was quite dark with almost no natural light, and 3. there were a few flies in the bathroom.
This hotel is quite far from the center of Siem Reap (since it is quite new, it does not appear on many maps, so search for Empress ANgkor hotel, and the Tradition is on a nearby side street), but we spent only one afternoon and evening in Siem Reap town, so this was not a problem as we took a Tuktuk into town, then used the free hotel shuttle to return at 9p.m.
The massage included in our package was average. The next evening, tired after touring the temples, we decided to have another massage. We had the same masseuses but this time they were really into their work and we enjoyed the massage. The tips we gave them on our first evening surely had a big impact on their motivation..
Breakfast could have been better; heavy on carbs/fats, light on veggies/protein. The fruits were delicious, but the fruit juices were sadly some sorts of flavored syrups. Service was overly attentive. Since there were about a dozen guests staying at the time, we were at most 4 guests having breakfast, so the waiters were just standing and staring at us eating.
We had dinner one evening and it was pathetic. We waited 45 minutes to receive our main dish. The Papaya salad had way too much fish sauce. Our desserts had been warmed up in the microwave and the inside was still frozen.
Overall, we were happy with the package and would recommend this hotel.
