Cambodian Heaven: Pavillon D' Orient Part Deux

The lush tropical haven that is Pavillon D' Orient is just the icing on the cake. The sponge cake that holds this hotel confection together are the freebies, the service, and the attention to detail that you get upon checking in. For US$ 100 a night, they managed to pull-out all the essential stuff you need for a hassle-free Cambodian getaway, plus a couple of small niceties thrown in for free.

For starters, we had this uber-comfy bed to come home to every night...

And, it comes with that bed canopy drape that's just very princess-y!

We also had a tea corner, where they put our daily supply of huge water bottles every day.

Every morning, we had a fresh basket of sweet tropical fruits.

And, at night, we had a bedtime story -- of Cambodian legends -- laid out on the bed.

Never mind the grammar though. Its the thought that counts!

On top of this, we still had free buffet breakfast everyday where we get to stuff ourselves with fresh fruits, assorted breads, delish Cambodian mixed fried rice OR Cambodian congee, AND a Continental-style breakfast of eggs and breakfast meats (bacon, ham, sausage).

And, free tuktuk rides from sun-up to sun-down going to the Angkor Wat complex...and wherever else in Siem Reap we want! The piece-de-resistance though is the ice chest waiting for us with bottled waters and cold towels. Genius!

Before we left, they gave us scarves and mini Angkor Wat wooden pins as souvenirs!

Awww! How sweet!

How could you not love this place?
