Moroccan style Sarai Resort and Spa opened in Siem Reap

The GOAT TREE Garden Restaurant is one of Siem Reap’s newest fine dining locations, situated in the just-opened Moroccan-inspired Sarai Resort and Spa luxury boutique hotel. And to let everyone become familiar with the deliciousness that’s on offer, the restaurant is giving a healthy 25 per cent discount on all food and beverages until April 30.

The name of this restaurant is inspired by a relatively common sight in Morocco – goats climbing argan trees. The leaves and fruit of argan trees provide a great nutrition for the hungry goats that flourish in parts of Morocco.

The restaurant encourages diners to indulge in mouth-watering Southeast Asian cuisine and is open for breakfast from 6-10am, lunch from noon-2pm and dinner from 6-10:30pm.

Diners are free to opt for their own choice of eating locale within the complex: they can either enjoy the meals inside the restaurant or in the green lush garden, at the fountain courtyard or simply relax by the pool.

The resort is also a great base for international visitors and Cambodian guests to indulge in peaceful surroundings in between temple visit forays and excursions around town to enjoy Siem Reap’s many gourmet delights.

The resort, which opened in mid-February this year, has been designed to be a destination where guests can pleasantly discover superior services, beautiful and comfortable rooms, great food, exquisite spa and the tranquil saltwater swimming pool. The resort is seven kilometers from the Angkor Wat temples, just a 15-minute drive away from Siem Reap International Airport and a few minutes walking distance to the town center and Old Market.

The resort also features a fitness centre featuring the latest cardiovascular and strength equipment. All gym machines come with a platform that, while enabling fitness also allows users to watch TV or video tutorials.
