With beautifully decorated villas set in landscaped gardens, overlooking a pool, kids play area and the lush, lush hills of Mondulkiri, the plush Mayura Hill Resort is a luxurious alternative to Sen Monorom’s more low-brow guesthouses. Located a 10-minute drive from what passes for downtown and set on a hillside overlooking Sen Monorom Mayura (meaning peacock in Khmer), Mayura makes for a special place to stay for those willing to spend a little more.

Despite rumours Mondulkiri certainly isn't all rubber plantations yet

Despite rumours Mondulkiri certainly isn’t all rubber plantations yet

The Mayura has just 11 tastefully-furnished, air-con rooms spread throughout the extensive gardens — expect wild macaques and even the occasional boar to wander through. The suite-style rooms are huge, with a dining and lounge area with a widescreen TV and DVD player. (There’s not a lot to do in the evenings in Sen Monorom!) The bathrooms alone are larger than some Phnom Penh hotel rooms we’ve stayed in. Each room comes with a spacious verandah to relax on as well.

The resort is well equipped with a gym, infinity-edge pool (the only pool in Mondulkiri that we saw), a kids’ play area, and a pleasant restaurant and bar overlooking a small pond where you can enjoy the included breakfast. We’re told this is the best restaurant in town, though sadly didn’t get a chance to check that out.

Not a bad view to wake up to!

Rooms are not cheap but overall solid value when you compare them with what you can get elsewhere for a similar price. Plans are afoot to add a group of mid-range chalets.

The rooms.

The owner, a young Khmer guy from Phnom Penh, impressed us with his enthusiasm for the local flora and fauna and provides a set of reference books for guests to browse on birds, mammals, butterflies, flowers and so on.

According to staff - Mondulkiri's only swimming pool?

The resort is slightly too far from town to walk but a daily free return shuttle running into town means you won’t be stuck, while motodops charge a dollar for the trip, so it’s easy enough to get into town for a wander around the market or to check out Sen Monorom’s admittedly limited supply of cafes and restaurants.

As we said - low key but well appointed!

The helpful staff are on hand to suggest and arrange activities and trips, and can supply guides and transport. The resort owns a zip-line at Bou Sra Waterfall that was set up and is now maintained and staffed by the people behind Flight of the Gibbon. If zip-lining across waterfalls isn’t your thing they also work in collaboration with the Elephant Valley project.

Mayura restaurant is an excellent spot for birdwatching
