Plaza Premium Siem Reap Review. A place for foodies!

I had a short stay at the Plaza Premium Siem Reap, but the lounge left a lasting impression! This lounge is great and has lots of fresh food options – make sure you arrive hungry. I only got to spend 30 minutes here, so this is a shorter review than usual.

In February, I had a short trip to Siem Reap with my family. It’s not the 1st time we’ve been here, as we really love the place. Siem Reap is famous for the Temples of Angkor, and rightly so – they’re an unbelievable sight! One thing I love is that the air is very fresh and clean – you really feel it as you walk around. Siem Reap is also a great place for luxury travel enthusiasts - you can stay in a 5* hotel for $100/night. Last time we visited, we stayed at the Park Hyatt Siem Reap, and had an amazing stay.

I got entry to the Plaza Premium lounge as I was flying in business, although you can also use a Priority Pass. The lounge is a large space with comfortable seating, fast wi-fi and an outdoor terrace.

The thing that really stood out for me is that the lounge has fantastic food. There was a high-quality buffet, and also cook to order pasta and noodles available. I was really disappointed that I had already eaten! My wife had some fresh noodles and she said they were very good.

There was also a large bar which had a range of drinks available. As it was morning however, I didn’t drink any alcohol.

Plaza Premium have a very good reputation for their lounges worldwide, and this is another example. I’ve been to a number their lounges, including 3 at London Heathrow: Terminal 2 departures, Terminal 4 departures and Terminal 4 arrivals. Each of those lounges were very good too. It’s difficult for me to compare the Siem Reap lounge, as Siem Reap is a very different airport to Heathrow. Unlike Heathrow airport, there isn’t any competition for lounges in Siem Reap. Plaza Premium could have built an average lounge if they wished, so I’m impressed that they invested in the space.

I recommend to spend an hour or two at this lounge before your flight. It’s a great place to get some food, have a drink and kick back. I’m annoyed with myself that I didn’t arrive earlier!
