The Golden Temple Residence is a beautiful resort that is centrally located to shopping and dining. Arriving at the resort was a pleasurable experience, we were met by a friendly staff that offered us a refreshing drink and local snacks while we were being checked in. There was no waiting in line at a check in counter which was a nice experience. The staff had you relax while they did the whole check in process and brought the bags to the room. The rooms are very clean and modern, the staff does a very good job keeping it that way. Breakfast offers a variety of Asian and Western cuisine. The pool is very beautiful and the signature cocktail is a refreshing drink while lounging poolside.
The hotel offers a lot of choices to purchase tickets to visit the many temples, enjoy a show, and many other activities. We decided to visit the temples and the floating village. Angkor Wat is a must. The sunrise is beautiful and the knowledge of how the temples became to be will amaze you. I highly recommend using the hotel if you decide on a private tour for an English or other language speaking tour guide. Our tour guide was Mr. Nak. Mr. Nak is not only knowledgeable about the temples but Cambodian history as well and will share a wealth of information during the tour. We were impressed with his knowledge and were happy that we had him as a guide. We decided to have Mr. Nak as our guide for the second day of temple tours and the floating village tour, a must see especially for the beautiful sunset. We decided to go by tuk tuk, our driver Mr. Kong was very professional and safe. We were extremely impressed with our whole experience and would highly recommend this hotel.
