Stayed 1 night 18 Aug 13 in a junior suite upgraded from a double deluxe. We crossed to the island on a private boat rather than using the ferry as advised. To achieve this we left our luggage with our driver in Kratie and only took the items we needed for the night. This meant that the private boat could take us right to the island bank close to the villas. This avoided using the public ferry and then having to travel 3km to the villas. The staff are friendly, helpful, well trained and have good English.
The villas have no power during the day. The generator starts at 6pm. The rooms have no frigs or air conditioning and have adequate furnishings with a comfortable sitting area outside the front door. The pool good and large. The restaurant is limited in choice, a bit expensive but the food is OK.
Breakfast from the menu was acceptable.
The villas are what they are and don’t pretend to be anything else - worth the visit. Rating 7 out of 10.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Rajabori is a confidential resort made of 11 traditional Khmer wooden houses located North of the island of Koh Trong in front of the town of Kratie. We created it to allow a deep immersion in an unspoiled part of old Cambodia for travelers fond of nature and discovery. Access is by boat then tuktuk or moped. The trip to the resort through the island's countryside is beautiful and is a small adventure in itself. For now, The Rajabori has thirteen rooms spread into eleven traditional wooden houses, single or double. To accompany this discovery of traditional Cambodia, our villas and all public spaces have been furnished and decorated in typical Khmer style with what we have collected over the years in all provinces of the country. Our idea is to re create an old style Cambodian village in the protected environement of Koh Trong Island. As a matter of fact, everywhere else in Cambodia, traditional wooden houses are being destroyed to make way for ugly blocks of concrete that have become the new « chic » in contemporary Khmer society. An entire architectural heritage of incalculable value and is being ruthlessly swept under the carpet... We wanted to go against this tide by bringing together a number of well trained craftsmen who perpetuate a thousand year old savoir-faire. ... more less
