Once a haven for French Cambodian jet set, the town of Kep remains a serene and secluded retreat on Cambodia's southern coast. Taking pride in the warm culture of the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Knai Bang Chatt staff delivers service rich in kindness and hospitality amidst a stunning coastal locale.
A heavenly peace governs this oceanfront retreat. The resort’s name means “rainbow encircling the sun”, the rainbow that symbolizes Buddha’s protective halo. Three mid-century villas are some of the last survivors of the region’s tumultuous past. These testaments to modernist architecture provide a truly residential feel at Knai Bang Chatt. Eleven spacious rooms are minimalist in style but offer amazing views of the gardens and sea through the floor to ceiling windows. With a plush oversized canopied bed facing the coast and surrounded by a private balcony, each room allows you to enjoy the grandeur of nature within luxuriant settings.
Khmer-style massage and facial treatments are available in the spa or on your private terrace, as are yoga and meditation lessons from local professionals. The Sailing Club offers excellent local cuisine nightly, as well as sailing lessons and excursions during the day. Cruise on a hired catamaran to nearby Rabbit Island for a picnic lunch, or simply kayak along the coast – a vigorous trek with a beautiful view. Spend a lazy afternoon in the ample pool, or simply leap off the dock for a swim.
The village of Kep is a scooter ride away from the lodge, with small shops and seafood markets offering further examples of the local hospitality and relaxed pace. Visit the falls of the Tek Chou River, nearby temples and derelict chalets to complete your tour of this quiet area.Request Information
