The former residence of the governor of Ratanakiri Province has been transformed into a tranquil, scenic resort with a beautifully landscaped tropical garden. The charming villa, with ground-floor and first-floor rooms, and the suites, spread across the garden, are steeped in colonial charm, and decorated with Cambodian antiques and decorative items made by local tribes. The restaurant serves a satisfying selection of Khmer- and French-inspired dishes that knock the socks
off the local competition—it's the best place to eat in the locale. Try the spa, a game of boules, the saltwater pool or a Cambodian kick-boxing class.
