Tree Lodge


More on Sen Monorom

An impressive property, that just got better and better the more we explored, Tree Lodge is just outside of town, but worth the trek to get there.

Travelfish says:

The main building sits aside a quiet lane, with a magnificent view across the hills and valleys behind, all of which you can enjoy from inside the restaurant with its big windows, or the balcony outside. It’s perfectly aligned for catching sunsets. As you look out from the balcony, the ground drops away and you’ll spy the line of wooden chalets running down the hill. These are all fan-cooled, ensuite rooms with raised beds, mosquito nets, comfortable mattresses. and some of the grooviest bathrooms we saw in Sen Monorom, including hot water showers (for an extra $2). All were scrupulously clean.

Health & safety officials might have a slight seizure over some of the walkways; suffice to say, you don’t want to be walking around here in your high heels. But you wouldn’t really have the occasion for that in Mondulkiri anyway. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we heard good things about the food in the restaurant. In fact, we kept hearing good things from people who were staying there, including a disconsolate fellow who had to move out because he hadn’t booked for long enough and his room was reserved by a more forward-thinking guest. This place seems to get full quickly, even at quiet times of the year, so don’t make the same mistake. They are also the founders of the Mondulkiri Project, which provides elephant tours and more, and has a good reputation for taking care of their animals, and not allowing visitors to ride their elephants. Highly recommended.
