We want to say so, so many good things about this place, because it really is stunningly beautiful and should be on anyone’s itinerary if they can afford it, but we can’t because the staff wouldn’t allow us to see the rooms.

Given we couldn’t see the rooms, we can only tell you what the outside looks like. Extensive, rich green tropical gardens centre in on an open-air pool, which appears to be naturally filtered, and is flanked by several wooden chalets and one long main open-fronted main building which houses the reception and bar. All are done in traditional Khmer style, with lots of elegantly tailored dark wood and beautiful finishings. The restaurant serves up a reduced version of what you’ll find at Le Bungalow back in Kratie, with a selection of Khmer, French and Italian dishes at mid-level prices.

It amazes us that — as with Le Bungalow — the staff of a property in which so much time, thought, and money has been invested, can be so inept. But there it is. We do know there is at least one staff member who is wonderful, because we met him at Le Bungalow — despite not being employed at the property he had to show us around, because none of the staff members who actually worked there seemed able to do it. But the ones we met at Rajaburi Villas on the day we visited were a vision of gormlessness. We have stayed in — and loved — Terres Rouges in Banlung, and are deeply looking forward to seeing it again. We don’t understand how the experience here can be so different. They don’t have a working website, either.
