A lovely, affordable spot

What we say: 4 stars

At Botanica, guests are greeted by a lush and overflowing garden dotted with honeybees and butterflies. Concrete bungalows are set along a meandering brick path that winds between banana plants and wild flowers. Interiors are simple but comfortable, with en suite cold-water showers and thick, comfortable mattresses. Mosquito nets and screened windows assure that no pesky critters disturb the slumber that should come easily in this quiet, out-of-the-way spot. Though it is a bit out of town, the guesthouse offers free bicycles and nothing is more than a short ride away. The restaurant serves an eclectic mix of international cuisine -- the menu is organised by country, with 12 nations represented -- and the bar is well stocked and offers a litany of cocktails and a hefty selection of Belgium beers. A pool table and friendly staff further compliment the draw of this lovely and affordable spot. WiFi is $1 per hour or $2 to use all day, and there's a laptop in the restaurant. When we visited in August 2009, the Belgian-Khmer couple who owned the place said it was up for sale and would probably change hands in a few months. They hope to sell it to people who will leave it generally as is.
