BOOK

Khla Lodge Kampot, rejuvenation and relaxation from the inside out, this is the promise of a stay in this fascinating region of Cambodia, and there may be no better place to stay than this delightful 5 room Kampot riverside hotel. Located in Makprang Village, a rural idyll 12kms north of the seaside town of Kampot, Khla Lodge is the perfect home from home for you when discovering Kampot. Set on the banks of a tributary of the Teuk Chhou River with rice paddies and lush countryside surrounding the resort, guests at Khla Lodge are spoiled for choice with the relaxing views on offer here. The lazy river winds it’s way round long bends heading south to the sea as the pastoral scenes play on seemingly unchanged by the passage of time, and the golden light of sunrise and sunset over the verdant Cambodian countryside promotes reverie and relaxation as life moves on here at a slower pace, with time governed by the seasons and the agricultural calendar rather than the clock of a mobile phone. A stay at Khla Lodge is sure to unwind and revive you. Relaxation is assured in this carefully planned and perfectly located boutique riverside resort, and if you are looking for the best area to stay in Kampot, Khla Lodge’s location is hard to beat. At just 12kms from Kampot City, the coastal city and its neighbouring town of Kep are just 30minutes and 45minutes drive away respectively. The Bokor Hill Station, a retreat from the heat of Phnom Penh for the privileged classes during the French colonial period from 1867 to 1965, with its Catholic church, palaces and grand homes is on a high point within the Preah Monivong National Park, a short 1 hour drive from Khla Lodge. This national park is famed for its dense forests, hilltops offering incredible views of the park and the Gulf of Siam beyond, waterfalls and a rich variety of wildlife including gibbons, macaques, pangolin, the endearing slow loris, the Asiatic black bear, the Malayan sun bear, and the enigmatic clouded leopard.

Your Host and The Team


“I simply fell in love with this land when I first visited it! We are just a few miles north of the city of Kampot and the nature surrounding Khla Lodge is so beautiful. It is a perfect location for a Kampot boutique hotel with big shady trees on the property and the river gliding silently past our hotel. With my family, we designed and built a stylish Khmer-style boutique-hotel to share this quiet, unique and peaceful place with open-minded travelers from all over the world, in order to experience real and natural Cambodia. We hope to welcome you to our Kampot home soon.”


A Kampot Boutique Hotel with All You Need for a Great Stay

The 5 rooms at this Kampot boutique hotel are set thoughtfully within the hotel’s beautifully maintained tropical gardens. Each room is individually decorated, air-conditioned, and set with a private en-suite bathroom. Interiors are light bright and airy, with the cool, clean white walls complemented by the warm tones of the locally sourced hardwood floors, doors and windows. The guest rooms at Khla Lodge have all been positioned both for views and to ensure privacy for guests, and with each room either enjoying garden views, pool views or river and mountain views. For a Kampot riverfront location Khla Lodge is hard to beat. The beach in front of the hotel is a great place to launch a kayak, which are provided on a complimentary basis to guests, and explore the river. Be sure to make time during your stay to take a seat on the terrace of your room between activities and just enjoy the peace and quiet of this lovely rural location. This serene Kampot boutique hotel also features a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with dishes crafted by the kitchen team from only the freshest locally sourced produce. And for folks keen to treat their family and friends back home with a taste of their holiday in Kampot, the team at Khla Lodge also offer cooking classes to share their favourite recipes from Cambodian cuisine. There are lots of options for walks in the area surrounding the hotel. A walk along the riverfront or explore the farmland to learn a little about the lifestyle of the villagers and what they grow in their fields here. It may be a Kampot riverside hotel, with water on its doorstep, but it still has an outdoor pool for guests to enjoy. The pool is set in the heart of the property with areas for sunbathing and for shade under the palm and mango trees. At 20metres long the swimming pool is perfect both for exercise and for just cooling off after a busy day exploring Kampot, or between poolside reads of your favourite book. Khla Lodge’s other services include 24hour reception and security, car parking on site, complimentary WiFi, a shuttle service and a library with books and board games.



“Country living Khmer style sums up the stay experience at Khla Lodge in Kampot. Peaceful and serene, the 5-room Khla Lodge is a truly charming Kampot riverfront boutique hotel. Rooms are spacious and bright and positioned carefully to ensure privacy. The design and layout make the absolute best of the river and countryside views, this is a thoughtfully designed hotel. But more than walls and wood, the quality of the stay experience is in the warmth of the family and team that own and run Khla Lodge. They truly share their home with you, and what a home, Khla Lodge and Kampot has so much to offer the traveller! Contact the Secret Retreats concierges and Book Now before it books out!”
Kim, the discoverer.



Khla Lodge, a Kampot Riverside Hotel with So Much to see on its Doorstep

Perfectly located in the countryside just outside the city, this Kampot riverside hotel is also close enough to be your home-base when visiting Cambodia’s coastal towns of Kep and Kampot. Under the French occupation Kampot became Cambodia’s most important seaport, until the establishment of nearby Sihanoukville’s port in the mid-20th century. The city’s centre is still home to a lot of French colonial architecture, making Kampot quite an attractive and widely regarded city – its old town has been considered for listing by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Built on the Praek Tuek Chhu River, where the river meets the sea, it is just 3 miles downstream from Kampot city to the Gulf of Thailand. The geography and climate of Kampot are perfect for a variety of gastronomic delights and while staying at Khla Lodge we strongly recommend you seek these out. The Queen of Fruits, the ‘Marmite’ of fruits, something you either love or hate, the durian is grown very successfully here, so much so in fact that the town has a monument to durian. Kampot fish sauce is also considered a world beater. But any chef will tell you that some of the world’s best pepper is grown in Cambodia’s Kampot province. It is said that the quartz content of Kampot’s soil contribute to the perfection of the pepper giving Kampot pepper its unique terroir. Red, green, black and white, Kampot pepper is the perfect gift to take home from your holiday and stay at our charming Kampot riverside hotel, Khla Lodge. And why not complete the set? Kampot and Kep are both home to salt farming, with Kampot’s fleur de sal also widely regarded. And now you have some of the world’s best seasonings ready, take a trip from Khla Lodge to visit Kep, just 45minute’s drive from the hotel. Kep is another French colonial period town with charming architecture and a deep history, but we are heading to the market. Kep crabs are a not to be missed dining experience. Fresh caught, the Kep Crab Market has vendors standing by ready to cook your fresh crab for you, with other seafood, on the barbeque right there and then. Stir fried crab, with a little fresh green Kampot pepper, is an unbeatable taste and just one of the wonderful moments that awaits you during your stay at Khla Lodge. There really is so much to see, do and enjoy while staying at this delightful riverside boutique hotel, you would be wise to contact the Secret Retreats concierge for help planning and booking a unique itinerary, so you don’t miss anything on your Cambodia holiday.
