I'm very happy for your welcome in staying at Le Meridien Angkor and I would special thank to and Romduol who let me know the hotel such a great hotel in Siem Reap, I would recommend to my friend to come
We spent 10 days at the Meridien Bora Bora with my wife and our 4 years old son and had such a great time! The staff was fantastic with the child and made our stay wonderful. The beach is facing the beautiful island of Bora Bora which gives a stunning view at any time. It is advised to get a bungalow on the lagoon facing north to get sun all day on the terrace from which you will be able to enjoy a swim in the lagoon. Regarding the breakfast, I would recommend to avoid the breakfast buffet, not really good and expensive and instead take a boat to the island and buy food at the supermarket and enjoy breakfast on the terrace of your bungalow... As for the 2 restaurants and the 2 bars, very good food for lunch and dinner. We enjoyed mainly the outside restaurant by the beach. Excellent grilled mahi-mahi burger (local fish) and outstanding tuna sashimi. As for the kids, all the food is very good, natural and copious. Regarding the activities, I would recommend to go for the jet ski tour and the best of the best, bathing with the sharks with No-hoo, the local star... we liked it so much this tour that we went twice and all of us swam with the sharks, even the 4 years old! If you go to the Meridien Bora Bora, you will not forget your stay!
This was one of the finest vacation experiences ever. Our overwater bungalow was delightful, spacious and felt very private. We loved staying in 324, at the end of the row, as it felt very private with great views, if a bit windy at night. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere quiet and elegant and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The see-through floor with gently lit view of the waters of the reef below our living area was a delight. We've traveled the world over, experienced a variety of locales, but this will shine out as one of the most beautiful ever.
An amazing place to visit. From being picked up from airport by boat, to our premium overwater bungalow, to the beautifully presented and prepared food at both restaurants, to the water sport activities, to the beach side bar, to the turtle sanctuary.... I could go on. Chanal the Concierge was extremely helpful in accommodating our many requests to organise our activities, especially the paragliding, which unfortunately after much organisation, was cancelled due to high winds which was a shame. For us, this resort ticked all the boxes. Would recommend Le Meridien as a first class resort to visit.
We were there and has been the best decision that we can ever take!! Breakfast are nice, for lunch you can eat something at the pool bar(nachos and pizza are nice)and dinners are nice as well!! We will repeat!!
Great hotel! Overwater bungalow is the way to go - it's what the majority of the rooms are and a highlight of the hotel. Rooms were great - compact but comfortable and had all you need. If you want shallow water outside your room (to be able to walk) you want a room that's closer to the beach, not too far down the pontoon. For more privacy, go farther down the pontoon but note that the water is very deep and the current is strong. You may need to bring a rope to tie your tube to something so you don't float away - no joke! I found the location of this hotel to have a great view of the mountain and to have one of the nicest beaches. Note that you have to get there by boat from the airport and if you want to leave the resort, you have to take the boat as well... even just to go to dinner... and I believe it was $38USD per person per round trip. Definitely worth getting out for dinner but food at this hotel was good. Breakfast buffet is price and was excellent. TONS of options and all very good. You sit half inside, half outside for breakfast and can feed the fish. For lunch there is a beach snack bar and a beach restaurant. For dinner, there were several options as well. Food was good. Service was a little lackadaisical. I can appreciate "island time" and I really don't need people to fawn over me but a few times I had to forego dessert because I got sick of waiting for the waitress who never seemed to return and another time at breakfast I had to ask so many times for coffee that I practically went into the kitchen to just get it myself. Not a huge deal but just a note for the hotel that service could be improved a little. Overall, though, this hotel was great. Not a huge place but had all we need and I really just can't get over how beautiful the surroundings were (that water!) ... I could have stayed for many more days and just stared at the scenery! Highly recommended!
Having frequented Le Meridien hotels in many places around the globe, I have never had an unpleasant experience until now. This is just a word of caution to those on less that a $2000 per day budget. Staying at a premium hotel on a remote island you would expect to pay a premium price for food and drinks. However, this hotel has taken that beyond the point of being ridiculous. If you want to eat for 2, plan on: breakfast $160, Lunch, $80+, Drinks $20+ each, Dinner $160. In other words, budget $400 per day to eat not including drinks. All activities, food, shuttles to the island ($28 each), etc have been developed to funnel as much money as possible from your bank account while you are there. Your $1000 per night buys you nothing but a bed at the resort.
My husband and I visited this resort over New Year's Eve. We stayed in an overwater villa with views of the mountain. It was exceptional. There were a good variety of restaurants and they organized a great event over New Year's Eve. Whilst apparently "booked out", the resort felt exclusive and not busy. The highlight of our trip was swimming with the sharks - 100% recommend it! I would also get a meal package of some sort as the meals were quite expensive. We booked through Tahiti Travel and found that they did a great job getting us the best deals and organizing everything for us so all we had to worry about was turning up ☺️
We stayed in a beach bungalow overlooking the inner lagoon. The room was spacious and thoughtfully laid out and 10 steps from the beautiful lagoon. The snorkeling was not great in the lagoon but there were two pet sting rays and amazing views of the mountain. Although we were told the hotel was nearly full, nowhere felt crowded and we felt we had our own private beach! It was so relaxing and the free use of the paddle boards and kayaks was a great plus. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay here again.
I have stayed in this wonderful hotel with my wife 5 years ago (Feburary 2012) for 4 days and we never forget it... A beach bungalow near the lagoon was perfect, it was like our private beach... Ambiance, staff, and service were exellent and foods were delicious. We have visited many tropical islands and resorts like Seychelles, Maldives, Palawan, but none of them could be compared with Bora Bora island and Le Meridien... It's the paradise in this world. Hope to be there again
