The accommodation is dotted around dense, mature gardens filled with mangosteens, passion fruit vines, pepper trees and coconut palms, with a good-sized pool in the middle that has plenty of shade for the sun-shy (and open space for the sun-worshippers too). Firmly in the mid-range budget, the 33 spacious rooms are available in a wooden house, pagoda-style towers or brick-built blocks, orientated for a view of the sea or the national park. The decor features wood and silk in a variety of styles -- it's worth looking at a few rooms before you decide which suits. Other than the Khmer wooden house, all rooms come with hot water and air-con. The batik-uniformed staff are informative and supremely helpful, and can assist with bicycle rental, tours, massages and treks. Mr Mab's open-air restaurant serves a splendid buffet breakfast with house-made bread, and focuses on Khmer food for lunch and dinner -- the daily three-course menu is a treat. Street Food Saturday gives an opportunity to sample 13 different kinds of freshly-made food from super-clean stations around the pool. Spring Valley Resort is a good choice for families, and for those who want some comforts along with the nature.
