After a 45 minute scenic drive up to the plateau of Bokor, you arrive to find a terribly ugly, windowless monster of hotel sitting in the middle of nowhere. Rooms are without balconies, facing each other, not much privacy. A separate building called spa features a small indoor pool, massage parlours (no windows, again), beauty salon - yet, everything is quiet liveless. Staff in public cafe/bar area try to speak a bit of English and be helpful, yet are not overly motivated. All in all, this hotel is solely aimed at Asian gamblers, nothing there to please Western taste. And if you want to get an idea of what the developers of Bokor Mountain have in mind, stop at the first building on top on the right hand side after checkpoint, you will find an enormous model depicting development plans which will make you gasp for breath!!!!!

We paid to go in to what we thought was a National Park and discovered quickly that the only area you can access is one big resort complex, so therefore there is very little to do. No nature trecking, and in general the area is an environmental disaster due to the massive commercialisation. It might be cool and a relief to get away from the heat, but the resort itself is really only a casino, no other resort features. No swimming pool and not sure if the fitness centre exists. The poker machines have had the collect buttons disabled, so if you want to collect your winnings you need to get an assistant and they will round down to the nearest dollar. I spent about 20 minutes discussing this issue with the supervisor / manager, but to no avail. I would not recommend this place for gambling, and there is little other reason to come here. Hotel room was clean and comfortable, I don't think the air conditioning worked, but it was cool anyway.

If your idea of fun is being stuck on a mountain top 40km from anywhere with only a casino and a restaurant you will love this sprawling resort / construction site. If you feel amenities like somewhere to sit outside and a pool define a resort, give it a miss.

On checking in we saw a notice informing us building work would be happening between 9.00am and 5.00pm. It was. Jack hammers in the corridor. When it was still happening at 7.00pm I rang reception to ask them to stop. The next day it started again just after dawn. We put up with one more day and night then cut short a planned four day stay and took the 40USD taxi ride into Kep, having been told that both the hotel shuttle buses that day were fully booked. Turns out they are not hotel buses but public transport that stops at Kep on its way to Phnom Penh.

The resort itself is doing well and packed with Asian visitors who seem to love it. In the huge breakfast room there was us and one other western couple. I have no problem with this, but would point out that Asians idea of a holiday tends to be different. Casino's, restaurants and shops take precedence over sun loungers and outdoor activities.

The scale of this development is staggering with tens of thousands of resorts, hotels, shops, apartments and towns planned for the entire Bokhar Highlands. Which explains why the Khmer refused World Heritage status for the place a few years ago. Part of me says this will bring employment and wealth to a country that badly needs it. Another part of me sees it as a monstrous blight on an area of outstanding beauty. It is the Khmers country so it is their shout and clearly the decision has been made.

The architecture I would describe as Soviet era neo-brutalist and they are building up to the steps of the ruined French resort and church. For some reason they have not followed the French and built on top of the mountain with its truly spectacular views over Kep and the sea. They have built a mile or so back. The view out of our window was a service warehouse.

While the Bokhar Highlands is spectacular I am not sure I want to go back and see it concreted over.

They should have never been allowed to build this complex on this location. Inside the hotel is very good, clean and well presented. More casino than resort with very little else to do unless you visit the local religious sites a short walk away.

This is a resort by name only. There has been very little thought into the design of this hotel. The hotel markets itself on the beautiful views, our room however overlooked another wing of the hotel and it appears this is also the case for most of the rooms. The sky Bar was, in fact, on the second floor and overlooked the car park. Outwardly the hotel looks impressive but the interior workmanship is of a poor standard that will surprise most guests.

The resort is incomplete and there is no pool at this stage, although one is apparently planned.

The most positive aspect of our stay was the staff. What they lacked in training was made up for by their positive attitude and overall friendliness.

Definately for gamblers only, if you are looking for resort accommodation I reccommend you try somewhere else.
