After days of traveling on and off, it was lovely to stop and rest in such a beautiful environment. The boys enjoyed the pool, buffet breakfast catered to both international and Indonesian tastes. Staff were lovely and very friendly. Beach views were amazing.

... S21, you could actually still see the blood stains left on the floors from the torturing and the walls were scratched in blood with words in Cambodian.

It is no wonder wandering around the city there are not that many older people…. They were all killed.
