Arun Mekong Guesthouse

Arun Mekong Guesthouse


More on Kratie

We were rather startled to discover this lovely property tucked in among rich gardens and huge mango trees.

Travelfish says:

A large wooden villa is the centre piece, and houses four guest rooms and an open-sided bar and restaurant area, which looks exactly the kind of place we wouldn’t mind lounging in and forgetting about the existence of time for a good long while. The rooms are all wooden and beautifully furnished with fan, mosquito nets, and en suite bathrooms downstairs. Upstairs has a share bathroom. In the gardens, two bungalows offer a little more personal space and small private terraces. The staff were very helpful, spoke excellent English and took real pride in their professionalism. Electricity goes on for three hours in the evening. This is truly a place to get away in.
