Just spent 4 nights at Natures Lodge. A very nice setting and a great concept. Like most things in Cambodia it must of been great when it first opened but now is starting to look a bit shaby due to lack of maintainance. The pick up in town offered on their website is non existent. The staff just say that it is not available or out of order. We heard this excuse made to a number of patrons.
The rooms though rustic were comfortable enough. Like I mentioned already they lack a bit of maintainance. They are a bit pricey for what you get. Having lived in Phnom Penh for 3.5 years we did not mind the wind blowing through the floor boards and welcomed being "cold" in Cambodia for the first time. I agree with the other posts in that the food at the restaurant is a bit pricey and "fair" when it comes to taste.
Looking at the prices for tours etc. we just winged it ourselves and had a great time. I must say that we were on our own motor bike so this was made easier.
We paid $5 for the two of us for an elephant ride at Monorom Falls. This was for around 20 mins which sure beats the $38 a person that was being charged. To be quite honest 20 mins was more than enough as they are quite uncomfortable.
Like the one reviewer says I really am trying to like the place.
