Review of The River Garden, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Share on Twitter Share on Facebook

The River Garden features specific Khmer decorations and accessories meant to make you feel in the middle of a Cambodian cottage during your stay. As such, it alternates between a faux luxury and the true nature of exotic Khmer interiors, mixing vegetation with wooden chairs and bamboo mats.

Here, you get to choose your room according to your budget: from deluxe suites, to Khmer cottages, or standard rooms. In any of these cases, the feeling is that you wake up in nature, in a quiet, peaceful place.

The River Garden offers cooking classes, which is nice if you’re interested in the subject, and comfortable (you won’t have to spend time looking for a good restaurant to immerse yourself in Cambodian cuisine) and it also offers tours to Angkor Wat and Tonlé Sap.


  • Comfortable suites in an exotic context;
  • Plenty of space and freedom of move;
  • Cheap food at the restaurant.

  • The place lacks proper supervision. Up to a point however, this is understandable, considering the architecture of this hotel.
  • Problems with storage space in some rooms.
