The name of this place gives a western appeal to it... while the Golden Banana may sound a bit funny - it definitely lives up to its reviews on TA. On arrival, after our 5 hr journey from Phnom Penh, we were greeted by warm smiles and we were seated in the comfy chairs. Drinks came out and we had all the staff come to take our bags and fill in our details. We then made out way to our rooms up some long, high stairs. The stairs lead us to a room high up and gives us a good view of the skyline. SO perhaps the climb was worth it. Proximity to the city center and tuk tuks were very convenient and we actually enjoyed spending time in the resort, by the pool side, with a waterfall and tropical sun chairs. An omnipresent male staff presence meant we could get help with bags and heavier items up the steep stair case. the six of us also had a giggle at the artwork in the rooms, which all added to the humourous vibe of this resort. but it made us happy and refreshed - and we felt then that we were on a holiday. thank you golden banana!
