A Perfect Lazy Afternoon at Suon Soben Resort

We spent one perfect lazy afternoon at Suon Soben Resort during the Pchum Ben Holiday last September 2014. It is one of the weekend getaway sites located in Prek Eng Commune, Kien Svay District, Kandal Province, about 22 km from Phnom Penh City.

It is a beautiful place of green gardens with a nice, relaxing and tranquil atmosphere. The place is ideal for families and groups of friends or colleagues who wish to enjoy taking photographs, eating delicious food, savoring the luxury of fresh air and spending time together. It is a good place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The resort provides thatched-roofed floating picnic cottages built around the big pond and surrounded with bamboo and coconut trees. It is very quiet and relaxing. We sat, took a nap, ate snacks, read a book, had a beer, did some fishing and relaxing close to the water.

There is also a small zoo there, they have peacocks, ostriches, crocodiles, monkeys, birds, chickens, pelican, geese, and many more.

The Pelican was looking very interested in the fish that were being caught.

Did you know that Ostrich can run up to 70 km per hour?

I love the beautiful and colorful plumage of peacock. :-)

I don't really exactly know what species this is. I'm pretty sure it's a type of lizard. It looks like a Komodo Dragon though. How about an iguana?

It has a good Khmer restaurant that serves all kinds of Cambodian dishes. The staff is friendly but at the time there was only one staff who could speak English.

The resort has a swimming pool for adults and children who wish to get a good swim. It looked clean. We didn’t really know that they had a swimming pool until we had gone there as the information about this resort on the Internet doesn’t say much. Shame we could have had a good splash.

All in all, we had a good time there!

Have you been to Suon Soben Resort? What’s your experience?

Little Lilly Travel Tip:

  1. If you wish to visit Suon Soben Resort, go there by car or by taxi as the road is very dusty.
  2. Take Road No. 1. It is past the Green Resort. When you reach the gas station, turn right (Tiger Road, as it leads to the Tiger Beer Company). Keep going for about 3 km then you’ll see the resort.
