Charming cabin-style rooms
Southeast of Sen Monorom High Street (a 10-minute walk) T: (017) 770 867, (017) 770 879
With 15 clean and comfortable wooden cabins, Phanyro was described as “plush” by one young Sen Monorom expat and while we wouldn’t go that far, it is a little more comfortable than the average and it’s out of everyone’s way, so will be quieter.
The mid-sized cabins are arranged around a pleasant little garden fronted by a rather wasted courtyard. The interiors are painted clapboard, which is vaguely romantic if you’re that way inclined, and have good bed linen, TVs, fans and hot water. The owner speaks English, and was very helpful, happy to answer questions and provide advice on things to do.
There is still no restaurant here, but that’s not really a problem, as everything else is within walking distance. Without a communal area though, you won’t really get to meet your fellow guests, so anyone looking to bond over elephant experiences may want to try Nature Lodge
or Tree Lodge

Cambodia's "Wild East" contains some of the most remote yet remarkable areas in the country. A highlight is the Mekong riverside town of Kratie and its nearby Irawaddy dolphins, but the more intrepid can explore Mondulkiri and Ratanakiri provinces to see waterfalls, a crater lake and go trekking through serious jungle.
Designed for the first-time visitor, this travel guide includes detailed maps plus accommodation, food, activities and transport information for Kompong Cham
, Stung Treng
and Sen Monorom
