Hidden on Koh Trong, a little-known island in the Mekong River, Rajabori Villas provides a rural alternative for travellers wishing to spend a few days exploring Kratie - ever hopeful for a glimpse of its famous Irawaddy dolphins, and often passing through en route to northern Cambodia or Laos.
Having caught the ferry across the Mekong, it’s a short journey to the north of the island through a sleepy riverside village. The pace of life on Koh Trong is laid-back at most, providing the ideal opportunity to immerse yourself in typical rural Khmer life. The community-based initiative in place here ensures that many benefit from your visit, with jobs shared amongst the locals and profits directed straight into their livelihoods.
Accommodation comprises of thirteen rooms housed in traditional Khmer wooden houses. Raised off the ground, in keeping with the area's traditional style, each has a large terrace, whilst inside rich woods combine with a very pleasant traditional decor and simple amenities. The water in the en-suite bathrooms is heated by solar panels.
The restaurant offers a menu of rural Cambodian cuisine using seasonal produce from Kratie’s market, and overlooks a good sized swimming pool. There is even a substantial beach between December and May.
