If you are looking for a true Cambodian experience, and to be immersed in the local culture, this is the place for you. You will stay at one of our minimalist, ultra-comfortable bungalows
But, please, if you are looking for a resort with luxuries this is not the place. We tried our best to make our bungalows comfortable and we strive to keep them clean. But yes, you will have to put up with mosquitoes, bugs, lizards, birds.
We clean the beach everyday and sometimes several times a day but depending on the ties and the season the beach can be dirty and the water unappealing. There is no rubbish collection in the village and this means we have to burn the rubbish we pick up from the beach and we produce. It can be a smelly and smokey job!
Living in a fishing village has its pros and cons. Super fresh fish, crabs, prawns, shells get here before they hit the market so we can have lovely barbecues and healthy, tasty meals. It is fascinating to see them going to sea around 5 pm every day, but the engines on their run down boats are so noisy! The boats come back at 5 in the morning, the whole village wakes up, the children and the wives wait at the jettys for their fathers and husbands coming back after 14 hours spent at sea. It's a very noisy and busy time, you would be tempted to bring here with you your western habits, that tell you that 5 in the morning is too early to wake up. But it is not, not here. Take a shower, have breakfast looking at the sunrise, enjoy the most cooling time of the day, choose from the boats the fish you want to eat at lunch. You will have time to sleep deep in the hottest hours of the day (from 11 am to 3 pm) when the village gets incredibly silent and quiet, Everybody stays indoor or under the shelter of their homes. The fishermen sleep before going back to the sea again and the women fix the nets.
Days here have a different pace. After the last call of the day from the mosque (Ishah) it is time to get ready for bed, read a book, watch a movie on the ipad, make love and call it a day.
So... are you ready to make a whole different experience from what you would get just a few kilometers from here?
Breakfast is from 8.00 to 10.30
Kitchen is not shared, we are happy to cook for you but we do not allow guests to use the kitchen. No cooking inside the room. Meals must be booked in advance (pasta always available without prior notice).
