“We stayed in tent 6 north for 2 nights...we do have regrets about our stay. And that is basically the fact that we didn’t stay longer.
This place is beautiful. A friendly welcome on arrival as we then took a boat ride to the resort. Having just come from Phnom Penh the first thing that hits you is the calmness.
A further friendly and informative welcome once we reached the resort. We arrived mid afternoon and took advantage of the wonderful food and sipped a couple of beers on the deck in front of our superb accommodation.
The sheer size of the tents and the comfort factor and ammenities available are fantastic.
I loved the fact you could unzip the tent to allow you to see the beautiful surroundings at all times. As well as allowing a subtle breeze. The fans provided help with the heat and humidity and the bed is large and comfortable.
I love how EVERYTHING moves with the flow of boats passing or people walking on the walkways.
Dinner choices are required in advance where you can choose the set menu of the day or simply pick what you like from the standard menu. Breakfast choices are also required in advance.
The food is very tasty and the restaurant staff very polite and efficient.
We enjoyed a trip to the waterfall. Our 2 guides and boat driver were very good and also great fun. Very interesting to hear how they now have jobs at the resort having been poachers.
We arrived prior to anyone else and it was great. The water is warm to swim and the scenery gorgeous. Butterflies everywhere and of course the flowing falls.
Fried rice cooked fresh on boar for lunch which was delicious.
A thunderstorm started upon our return boat trip..I’m not good with lighting and I’ll never forget the guides ‘ducking’ and ‘cowaring’ with each lightning strike...when I saw what damage the lightning strikes had caused to their coconut trees you’d understand why. Thankfully after watching the rain fall with such force into the river as we arrived back it stopped.
We went on the free trip to see the fire flies. Stunning and so bizarre that they all congregate to one tree..it flashes like a Christmas tree...but it much more beautiful...and the stars...in such darkness the stars are so bright.
We were off to Kep after here and were so glad to be given the choice of when we departed. 8am 10am or 12pm. We went with the later time so to optimise our time. Using this to take a leisurely breakfast and to take the kayaks out for a paddle round the island. We saw rhinoceros hornbills and archer fish.
Highly recommend 4 rivers. Long may it stay exactly as it is”
