There are several very similar looking mid-range resorts down this end of Otres but the picturesque Secret Garden breaks the mould with their peanut shaped pool and individual chalets along paved paths winding through an attractive and lush jungly garden.

Beige/yellow chalets come with traditional style thatch roofs and balconies furnished with bamboo or rattan tables and chairs. Interiors are simply decorated but well-lit for a change and fitted out with TV, WiFi, fridge, air-con unit and ensuite bathrooms. Safety deposit boxes come in the unusual form of wooden chests which resulted in the patient and helpful staff member having to listen to us trying to explain in Khmer what a pirate was and indeed the pseudo-silk purple bed liners did look like something Captain Kidd may have looted from an Arab merchant vessel.

It’s cute without being twee which goes for their very pleasant pool and pool-side bar area too. There are loungers on a tiled deck and straw-roofed salas for shade.

Secret Garden also has a stand-alone restaurant across the street on the beach offering a comfy bar area including games and pool table, sea views and some very fine food. As usual, there’s a mixture of local, other Asian and western dishes but some of the latter were a lot more imaginative than the norm. Suffice to say that Secret Garden’s welcoming bar and classy menu are definitely worth stopping by for even if you’re not staying there.

Interiors perhaps aren’t as luxurious as say Ren or Tamu but rates are lower and the setting, to our minds, is certainly cosier and cuter. Secret Garden is our pick of the bunch on Otres 2.
