Siem Reap Hotel Review| Pavillon d’Orient Boutique Hotel

Pavillon d'Orient

Siem Reap, KH – Pavillon d’Orient deluxe room (Ian Yacobucci/Borderless Travels)

Nestled between the ancient and the modern is an oasis known as the Pavillon d’Orient.  The dusty chaos of busy Siem Reap melts away at the Pavillon d’Orient’s colonial style refuge that’s close to everything yet seems miles away when you’re soaking in the salt water pools or receiving a massage at the spa.

After several days exploring the frenzied streets of Phnom Penh, followed by a several hour bus ride to Siem Reap, we were greeted by Pavillon d’Orient staff as we stepped off the bus. Getting picked up was a welcomed escape from the energetic streets of Cambodia’s most popular tourist destination, and the 5 minute drive to the hotel was a luxury we’re not always used to receiving when we arrive at a new destination.

Upon arrival at the Pavillon d’Orient, excited to explore the ancient temples of Angkor Wat and spend some time in Siem Reaps vibrant old market neighbourhood, we walked into a most unexpected atmosphere. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and filled with the friendly and welcoming staff of the Pavillon d’Orient we knew we had found the perfect refuge for our time in Siem Reap.


Tucked away just up the road from National Hwy 6 Pavillon d’Orient has a local feel as soon as you step out front.  Down the road from the local Psah Leu market, filled with the daily ongoings of Siem Reap inhabitants busying their days with work and filling the small local eateries, the area around the hotel will give you a glimpse of daily life in Cambodia.

The best part of The Pavillon d’Orient location is that it’s a 15 minute tuk tuk ride from both the ancient temples of Angkor Wat and the lively Old Market neighbourhood, where you’ll find Siem Reaps Pub Street and Night Market.

You don’t have to worry about getting a tuk tuk on your own here because the Pavillon d’Orient includes a fleet of friendly drivers that are at your service for the day or the duration of your stay.

Amenities – From the nighttime story legends that are left on your door each night to the language and customs (including do’s and don’ts) booklet located in every room, the Pavillon d’Orient takes care of everything and more.  Rooms include air con, plasma TV, WiFi, safety box, mosquito nets, writing desks, & laundry services.

Restaurant & Spa –  At the Pavillon d’Orient Boutique Hotel you can eat well at open air restaurant or relax at the affordable professional spa.  At the spa the professional masseurs provide comfortable and relaxing experiences that range in price from $8-16 for various massages that include a tradition Khmer experience (that I highly recommend and is included with a 3 or 4 night stay).

At Le Planteur restaurant, the delicious Khmer and western menu provides a variety of options to suit any palate.  The breakfast is wonderful and comes with homemade yogurt along with a splash of the daily smoothy, and the Asian options are full of flavour.  Between the delicious food and the relaxing spa it’s hard to leave the Pavillon d’Orient.

 Room – The comfortable colonial style setting is elegant yet homely and offers options for private balconies overlooking the tropical gardens and swimming pools as well as a beautiful hardwood finish that makes sitting by the writing desk to update your travel journal, or work on your computer, a pleasure.
