THE GREEN LEAF BOUTIQUE HOTEL REVIEW
Making a difference in Cambodia!
‘Profits generated from our hotel go towards our foundation which provides several humanitarian programs for locals in our community and across the Siem Reap province’
The Green Leaf Boutique Hotel is a beautiful art inspired one of a kind non-profit foundation with an aim to make a difference in their community. This highly acclaimed, award-winning hotel puts all of its profit into several programs that include water purification, women's education, recycling and support for local schools. How could you not support such an incredible cause by just staying and enjoying their services!
We were warmly welcomed the minute we stepped foot inside with genuine smiles, offered refreshing cold water and towels to cool us down. They sure understand the struggles of dealing with Cambodian heat at this time of the year! The kind staff carried our heavy backpacks down to our room with ease and cranked on the much-needed aircon followed by a tour of the beautiful room.
We recently had the pleasure of staying in this gorgeous hotel and can say we absolutely made the most of it! With a combination of luxury and homelike relaxation it sure was the perfect place for a much-needed break from the crazy travel life.
Other services provided:
-Tours (From Angkor Wat to helicopter rides they are more than happy to recommend/book tours for you to ease the process!)
-Yoga & Wellness (The Green Leaf Hotel is a proud partner with Tavoos Garden & Wellness Center located right nextdoor)
Located only a few minutes drive (13min walk) from Pub Street and other main attractions, it is pretty central to Siem Reap. This meant we were able to come and go by foot easily when we wanted to explore the markets and nightlife Siem Reap had to offer.
Although it is pretty central, it is still far out enough to provide a quieter, tranquil experience rather than the loud hustle and bustle of the city.
Ten spacious newly renovated rooms surround the crystal clear refreshing swimming pool. Blending luxury and style with comfort and affordability. They even have rooms catering for families with two large king sized beds, so this hotel really accommodates for all.
We were in one of the poolside rooms on the ground floor and were blown away by the homely feeling it provided!
Although it does have a slightly modern look, the hints of green and outdoor inspired bathroom surely made you feel like you were in a hidden tropical retreat. With a large comfortable bed, mosquito net, fridge, desk, jug, coffee/tea, hairdryer, bathrobes, slippers and more, we sure had everything we needed.
Ways they are achieving an eco-friendly environment within the rooms:
-Asking you to turn off all power as you leave the room for the day.
-Reusing towels to save water (Unless you leave the towel on the floor to be cleaned)
-Water fill up station for free + no plastic bottles given! Only reusable glass.
One of our favourite parts of our stay in this beautiful hotel had to be the crystal clear refreshing pool. Surrounded by lush green plants providing some shade from the scorching sunshine, this pool was a great break from the heat after a day of exploring. I would have to say we spent at least an hour a day relaxing in the pool on the lilo or just sitting next to it on the loungers while reading a book. Living the holiday dream!
Every quest is offered a wide variety of delicious breakfast options complimentary with their stay. Whether your craving a Sunday morning pancakes in bed or hearty poached eggs on toast accompanied with a much-needed coffee there are many options to satisfy your taste buds.
We absolutely loved our stay at The Green Leaf Boutique Hotel and wish we could have stayed for longer! Knowing they are making such a positive impact on the community made our stay even more enjoyable. Located close to the main attractions in town, providing a large range of delicious food and a wonderful pool to relax by is more than we could have asked for at such a budget-friendly price!
We highly recommend this beautiful hotel if you are in need of a home away from home with a touch of that luxury feel whilst benefiting the community.
