The best in town
Tree Top is by far the nicest place to stay in Banlung and, oddly, one of the best value.
It opened in early 2009 and you can get a beautiful wooden hut with a wraparound porch that hangs off the side of a lush hillside for a (relative) song.
Inside, bungalows have electricity, vaulted ceilings, an immaculate bathroom and super-comfortable mattresses with soft linens. The cheaper rooms, while still a good deal, are set in a row house and lack the incredible views and private outdoor space. Free WiFi is available in the restaurant area only. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and bustles with travellers, though we found the food to be only so-so. The view looks straight out on to the evening’s sunsets.
We loved our stay here, and felt very well looked after by the staff, who also minded our gear while we were off braving the wilds of Virachey.
