What we say: 4 stars

A kind of bo-ho feeling resonates through Elephant Garden, which is a little bit hippy, but a little bit classy too. They offer a range of room styles, with thatch bungalows, Khmer-style wooden houses on stilts, and brick bungalows (fan and air-con) with private bathrooms. The rooms are simply decorated, although the bathrooms in the brick bungalows are finished to a high standard and look almost Nordic in their design, complete with rainfall showers and blonde wood shelves. The thatch bungalows and Khmer-style houses on stilts are simpler affairs with minimal decoration, but are clean and well-maintained. The houses on stilts have their own private bathroom though. The restaurant enjoys a solid reputation for the food and may be worth a visit even if you’re not staying here. The extensive list features some lovely dishes, including pho ga ($5 -- the only desert island food you’ll need), a refreshing Andalusian gazpacho ($6), beef tournedo with caramelised onions and mango, on green Kampot pepper and red wine sauce, and potato cookies ($16), and the Elephant Garden ‘fish platter’ with prawns, steamed clams, and three different fish, depending on availability at the market, pan-fried and served with a selection of sauces ($16 per person, or $18 for one). The restaurant looks straight out onto the beach which is arranged with sun loungers and a spacious cabana with scatter cushions.
