Ten 103 Treehouse Bay

Jungle living

What we say: 3.5 stars

Formerly Jonty’s Jungle Camp, Ten 103 Treehouse Bay is named after the latitude and longitude location of the camp, which you may need because with so much surrounding jungle it’s barely visible from shore. Secluded treehouse bungalows are hidden among the barely-contained jungle and overlook the amber beach.

The simple bungalows, with names like Crabshack and Flying Fox, have walls made of bark and the bed frames are the trunks of young trees cleared to make room for the camp. The more expensive bungalows have larger balconies with a table and chairs and take in the lovely sunset each evening, and there’s one ensuite treehouse, a minimal boudoir with a large round bed inside and outdoors on the balcony a squat toilet that comes with seriously scenic sea views.

Jetskis and banana boats everywhere.

There’s also a dorm room with an amazing view to wake up to — we prefer the dorms to the bungalows. The shared bathrooms are clean but about as simple as possible, with scoop showers and squat toilets, and are a bit of a walk from the most distant accommodation.

There’s a definitely rustic vibe about the place and the bungalows are relatively expensive for what they are. However, it’s very friendly, with a lounging area and bar great for sunset cocktails and just one large table in the small restaurant. Despite its seclusion, Ten 103 is a culinary hotspot, run by an Italian and American chef. The pair turn out homemade breads, pastas and pastries using the wood-fired oven they’ve built. They’ve a regular menu and a handful of specials per day that are usually around $7-8 but large enough to sate even the healthiest of appetites.

Ten 103 is also uniquely home to its own absinthe distillery, which attracts some daytrippers and guests from neighbouring properties; they run tasting sessions and from firsthand research we can assure you that the absinthe-based cocktails on their drinks menu are strong. A daily boat goes to Otres beach in the morning to pick up supplies. You can catch a ride for $13 return with a free pickup available from Sihanoukville town, or call to set up a private boat.
