The south-western coast of Cambodia is home to Knai Bang Chatt, a stylish boutique hotel just a short walk from Kep and 40-minute drive to Kampot. Built in the 1970s by students of Van Molyvan, the architecturally bold villas hark back to former French colonial splendour.
Its 18 rooms and suites are charmingly rustic with options for terraces, patios and sea views. Spacious interiors feature teakwood beds, muted lighting and antique ceramics while en suites are fitted with natural stone and free-standing tubs.
Savour refined dining at The Strand, Kep’s high-end restaurant, with its diverse menu offering a range of global cuisines. The Sailing Club, formerly a fisherman’s cottage, serves fresh seafood to tables set over the water. Enjoy signature cocktails at Khmer-inspired The Lounge.
Knai Bang Chatt is ideally located for visits to Kep’s Crab Market, salt fields, pepper plantations and limestone caves. The Sailing Club offers adrenaline-fuelled watersports while the infinity pool and spa offer the perfect respite.
