A little tricky to find, Dragonfly is nonetheless a beautiful little spot and worth the journey, whether you’re looking for somewhere to stay, or somewhere for a beautiful sundowner.
In fact, it’s really not that hard to find in a village with only two and a half roads.
The accommodation is simple, consisting of a dorm with around a dozen simple mattresses with mosquito nets, or you can go jungle and pick one of the hammocks slung between the trees near the bar.
The bar is the best bit here. Beautifully designed, in soft wooden forms, you can take your stool there for a chat, or recline on the sala over the cliffs looking out to sea to enjoy a stunning sunset. The view is beautiful, taking in Koh Rong
, and the sea beyond.
The guys running the show here are as relaxed and fun as you can get, and we had a hard time tearing ourselves away from a highly entertaining chat, and while they were still brand spanking new when we visited, we expect there’ll be plenty of events to draw people in. They mentioned a hope of setting up yoga classes too.
To find Dragonfly, head up the road that faces on to the pier, perpendicular to the main beach road, until you get to the primary school gates. Walk through the gates, turn right and follow the “path” as it folds up the hill to the left, and there you are. Not even three minutes away from the pier.
