Certificate of Excellence
Located in the rapidly expanding area of Wat Bo, The Golden Gecko Villa is a central hub to restaurants, night life and importantly is situated only 6km from the ancient wonders of Angkor Wat. The city center is within easy walking distance, just 1 km away and the airport can be reached within 25 minutes. With its convenient location, The Golden Gecko Villa offers easy access to the city's must-see destinations and sightseeing opportunities. With only 13 private rooms The Golden Gecko Villa is a cozy and tranquil oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city, but also close enough to enjoy the delights of both the Old Market and Pub Street areas. We can assist with all of your travel arrangements via our 24-hour reception staff who can organize day trips to the temples or the lake, help with transport tickets to other Asian destinations or ticketing services to any of the best attractions that Siem Reap has to offer. You may choose to use any of our villa's recreational facilities, which can include hiring a bicycle for a day of self-led adventure around the city or enjoy relaxing by our large swimming pool. Whether it is after a day of exploring the fascinating ancient temples of Angkor or spending the day bartering for that final bargain souvenir at the Old Market, please imagine yourself relaxing in our tropical surroundings, enjoying a well-earned cocktail by the poolside and enjoying a snack before heading into town for dinner.
