  • Description


    We built this project from scratch and started taking customers this year. We try to be as Eco Friendly as we can within the limits set by living in Cambodia.
    My wife and I run it with 3 staff of which 1 is Australian the other 2 Khmer. My wife is Thai. No set work titles are set but everybody has their own job and is willing to help with anything that needs doing.
    I have ran my own business for many years after leaving university and working for British Steel and BP Oil. My wife is Thai and is a great cook, well known throughout Cambodia as we ran a restaurant in Sihanoukville before.
    Not a place to party or rave but an idyllic relaxing and chill out place.

    We are 25km outside of Sihanoukville. We have 8 bungalows for renting, 5 boats,many Kayaks and are at present establishing vegetable production to use on the resort.
    We are in the heart of rural Cambodia although near to the holiday resort of Sihanoukville.
    It is an ideal opportunity to see the real Cambodia, worsts and all.
    We are looking for people to stay on a short term basis but somebody that can add something to the friendly resort. Food will be provided as and when the member wants it. They can cook it themselves or eat with the owners.

  • Help


    We are looking for people who are adaptable but who like working in a
    large garden, painting and general maintenance. Because the bungalows are wooden we have constant maintenance with them.
    If suitable and if wanted you can take boats up river so that customers can see mangroves and wildlife.
