services and amenities
It is very difficult to describe our week at Maison Polanka as every expectation we had was exceeded – we felt like out needs were met before we even knew that we needed it. The level of service is fantastic and is personalised to your requirements

GYM & SPA
Located next to the garden cottage, our spa welcomes you with a variety of treatments provided by experienced therapists . For the runners, early morning runs can be arranged within the temples complex. Private yoga classes can also be organised at dusk.
We have an agreement with the Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor ( 2 mn away by tuk tuk) for an access to their gym installation.
Your Airport Pick Up and Transfer
Siem Reap airport is only 15 minutes away from the hotel but as we are a secret garden hidden address, and are thus not well known to the taxis or tuk tuks, we wish to organise your pick up from the airport or from a bus station. You will be greeted by Sopharin or Seiha who will make you feel at home right away. Please let us know your arrival details at the time of reservation so we can make necessary arrangements.
For those traveling by car, parking is available in the property and is guarded.
Your visit to art galleries
Your Tailor Make Tours to the Temples and More
We can assist you with your tours of the magnificent, jungle-covered temple ruins and give you our insiders’tips to avoid the crowds and experience more of the Cambodian culture at Angkor Wat. Reservation of guides and transportation should be done in advance during the high season (October to March) but itineraries can be adjusted day by day. You should always feel free and on holidays!
Your reservations for activities
In high season senior guides are pretty busy and should be planned ahead. We also recommend that you book ahead the evening with the Phare Ponleu Selpak circus show or the Sacred Dancers performance as they sell out quickly.
The fine dining restaurant Cuisine Wat Damnak also is often full and should be booked in advance. Closed on Sundays and Mondays.
A few notable highlights were: the relaxing and lush setting surrounding the pool and lounge area, the memorable and delicious meals (probably some of, if not the best dishes we had during our stay in Cambodia), and the massage staff that were available daily to ensure that were were in complete vacation mode. Also, the vintage Japanese bicycles that are available for taking our into town were a great way to see the area.
