With 15 clean and comfortable bungalow-style rooms, this two-year-old guesthouse set somewhat outside Sen Monorom's main drag should prove popular with backpackers and others looking for low-priced and exceptionally quiet comfort.
The medium-sized rooms, arranged around a pleasant garden area, are reasonably clean, comfortable, and have televisions and operational fans, as well as warm blankets -- useful during windy Sen Monorom nights. English speaking and friendly owner Net Thavro is enthusiastic about his guesthouse and is happy to answer questions and direct tourists towards interesting things to do in the region. Mr Thavro and his English speaking staff are able to arrange tour guides, laundry, bus tickets, motorbike rentals and taxis to and from Phnom Penh. Although there's no restaurant on the premises, Mr Thavro says he plans to offer Western food soon. Travellers expecting to make new friends while traveling in Mondulkiri should probably stay at Nature Lodge -- and those just wanting a bit of solitude should give Phanyro a close look. A stroll down the road will lead you to some Khmer joints if you're seeking AM eats. No Internet available at the time of writing.
