Tree Top Ecolodge

Mr T, once Stung Treng's unofficial welcome committee and owner of its popular Riverside guesthouse, relocated to Banlung a few years ago because, his nephew who now runs Riverside says, he didn't see much of a future in Stung Treng.

Lucky for Banlung. Tree Top is by far the nicest place to stay and, oddly, one of the cheapest. It opened in early 2009 and you can get a beautiful hut with a wraparound porch that hangs off the side of a lush hillside for a song. Inside, bungalows have electricity, vaulted ceilings, an immaculate, connected bathroom and super-thick mattresses with soft linens. The cheaper rooms, while still a good deal, are set in a row house and lack the incredible views and private outdoor space. Free WiFi is available in the restaurant area only. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and bustles with travellers, though we found the food to be only so-so. We really enjoyed our two-night stay here, though were very annoyed when a bag went missing from our room -- management suggested a dog took it. Our suggestion? Don't leave any valuables in your room. Despite this unfortunate happening, we'd still rate this as the best place to stay in town.
