From Rajabori Villas Resort: "For people traveling through North East Cambodia, all roads going to Laos, Vietnam, Ratanakiri and Mondolkiri converge in Kratie, a small town on the banks of the Mekong river.
Known mostly for the fresh water dolphins that dwell North of town, Kratie doesn’t usually keep its visitors for more than one night. A few hundred meters away from the town of Kratie, in the middle of the mighty Mekong River, there is another Cambodia, a Cambodia still mostly spared by the modern world.
Surrounded 8 months a year by white sandy beaches, constantly refreshed by the river’s breeze, the island of Koh Trong is some sort of an ideal Cambodia.
No cars, but carts, smiling peasants, craggy fishermen and a rich soil that man turned into an orchard, « Koh del Trong bat Cheunchien », "the island where the King lost his ring" is a small paradise. The Rajabori invites you to lay down your luggage and discover this world !
The Rajabori is a confidential resort made of 13 traditional Khmer wooden houses located North of the island of Koh Trong in front of the town of Kratie. We created it to allow a deep immersion in an unspoiled part of old Cambodia for travelers fond of nature and discovery. Access is by boat then tuktuk or moped.
The trip to the resort through the island’s countryside is beautiful but it takes a little time, so we advise those who are in a hurry or turned off by the various manifestations of nature (insects, frogs, etc.) to stay in Kratie, as clearly, Koh Trong island is not for them!"
