Done Right is absolute heaven on Earth. Beautiful people and beautiful staff with possibly the best 'Western' menu option in the whole of Cambodia. My girlfriend and I stayed TWO MONTHS in Done Right during the quiet season. We were looking for the perfect stretch of beach to pass a few weeks in Cambodia and we were directed to Otres Beach just near Sihonoukville. The beach when we arrived was just what we wanted, quiet bliss on the edge of a National Park, pure paradise.. and right down at the end of the beach we found Done Right.
It was perfect. Just how you'd imagine the cast of 'The Beach' living and getting along if everything went perfectly well for them! We were given a long-term deal on our Dome which became our beloved home for those months we spent there. Otres Beach is a remarkable stretch of untouched Cambodian coast with plenty of little places to put your head down but we felt that Done Right, being one of the very first places to set up on Otres, was definitely the most integrated and accustomed to the area and the western/cambodian staff had an enormous sense of community between them and neighboring settlers, who became like family to us.
Like I said, we spent 2 months there. We saw some unfortunate things happen. Once the water went brown for a week, because the Well ran dry and they had to dig for a new one. I've noticed a very nasty review here from people who came to stay in that unfortunate week which is completely unfair. [--] happens. I had something stolen from me at the bar from a kleptomaniac traveler, and had it retrieved by most helpful staff who spent days solving the crime on my behalf. Again, this was just a random unfortunate occurrence which could happen anytime and anywhere. There were very infrequent electricity problems, again one of which has made it here as a nasty review by a fleeting visitor but Done Right is essentially existing on the fringes of where civilized Cambodia meets nature and of course there are going to be some problems.
Done Right is not just about a one night stay. If there are any bad reviews of Done Right on this website, I've noticed them coming from disgruntled short-stay travelers, all TOO familiar with specific mods&cons and wanting very specific types of rooms they've become accustomed to prefer. Done Right is more Boutique Festival than Travelodge or Hilton. It strives to bring you a super comfortable haven far off the beaten track, far enough to detach yourself from civilization for as long as suits you. I can not recommend it highly enough for traveling couples who fancy a good rest from moving around too much.
Hope to see you all again soon Done Right. Sorely missed xxxxxxx
