Set on a bend in the Tatai River in West Cambodia the Canvas & Orchids Retreat is a boutique glamping eco-lodge comprising of 8 floating and 5 island tents offering the ultimate glamping Cambodia experience. Built to the highest standards and inspired by the luxury safari tents as used by the best lodges in Africa, comfort and safety are assured. This glamping eco-lodge, Canvas & Orchids Retreat, has a mix of floating tents and island tents available to guests. The floating tents are set on anchored pontoons that literally float on the river and are perfect for couples, solo travellers, or groups of up to 3 guests. The 2-bedroom island tents are set amongst gardens on Andet Island on the bank of the river. These tents are ideal for families with the master bedroom set with a king bed and the second bedroom set with twin single beds. Both the floating tents and island tents at Canvas & Orchids Retreat enjoy private en-suite bathrooms with showers, and all the comfort and luxury a room at a boutique hotel would provide with carefully selected décor, handmade furniture crafted from locally sourced materials, TV and free-view movies, minibar and in-room safe. Everything at the resort has been designed to make as minimal an impact on the environment as possible. The design of Canvas & Orchids Retreat blends beautifully within its surroundings, and this harmony extends to working closely with the local community too with hotel staff, activity and nature guides, all coming from the local area.

Your Hosts and The Team


“Often, eco-tourism conjures up visions of uncomfortable beds, leaky tents and songs round a campfire, this is not the Canvas & Orchids Retreat experience. Our vision for the perfect vacation in unspoilt surroundings is to offer top-of-the-line luxury served in harmony with Mother Nature, to give her a chance to impress you with an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colours and images. Relax and let your senses take over with the rustling sound of a small creature in the tangled undergrowth on the shoreline, a flash of colour as a bird rises out of the jungle and the cymbals, bells and musical notes of a traditional roneat ek (xylophone) blowing in the wind. Canvas and Orchids Retreat has been designed to be at one with it’s nature-rich home and at the same time be part of, and work with, the local community in promoting and fostering the soft tread of an environmentally aware footprint to protect our unspoilt home.”


Canvas & Orchids Retreat offers the Perfect Harmony of Eco Lodge Sensitivity with Boutique Hospitality Style

Through working closely with the local community, they work together to protect and conserve their rainforest homes. Local knowledge was also employed in the initial design and build of the property and the team remains dedicated to conservation and sustainability today. There have been no compromises in comfort or service standards at Canvas & Orchids Retreat though, it is glamping Cambodia with a boutique hotel’s service standard. The retreat has an excellent restaurant from where the chef and his team serve traditional Khmer, Asian and western dishes all complemented by a full bar. The spa team at Canvas & Orchids Retreat are available for a variety of massage treatments, which make for the perfect choice after a busy day enjoying the surrounding nature on one of the thoughtfully designed excursions. Guided treks, kayaking, opportunities to learn about the local culture, nature tours and treks to romantic waterfalls within the rainforest, there is lots to see and do at Canvas & Orchids. Favourite activities of guests include the Sunset Cruise and at the other end of the day the Dawn Jungle Trek to hear the most magnificent dawn chorus you will ever hear. Located in the Cardamom Rainforest on Andet Island, Canvas & Orchids is easy to get to, almost halfway between Bangkok and Phnom Penh it is easily accessible both from Thailand and from Cambodia.



“Canvas & Orchids Retreat is an environmentally friendly glamping resort in western Cambodia of 13 luxurious tents set literally afloat on a lazy bend in the Tatai River. This glamping retreat combines the best of both worlds, environmentally sensitive yet luxurious boutique hospitality set within a beautiful and unspoilt natural environment. Perfect for families, solo travellers and couples, perfect for adventurous nature lovers, and perfect for folks who simply want to relax and laze in reverie, Canvas & Orchids Retreat has it all.”
Kim, the discoverer.



Glamping in Cambodia has a New Benchmark

Glamping in Cambodia has been taken to a whole new level by the team at Canvas & Orchids Retreat – this was the first tented boutique hotel to place luxury safari tents directly on a river atop carefully designed and anchored pontoons. Set within the Cardamom Rainforest, guests are immersed within pristine nature, the floating tents anchored over the gently flowing Tatai River and the family tents on the riverbank nearby, the beauty of nature is all around you. Enjoy peaceful moments sat on the terrace of your floating tent listening to the rich birdlife as you gaze out across the river to the pristine forest and mountains beyond. Take an in-room traditional massage after a day kayaking down river or exploring the coastal mangroves where the Tatai River meets the sea. Witness and enjoy one of nature’s most enchanting magic-shows when clouds of fireflies come out in the evening to dance their dance over the river. Take a guided hike well off the beaten path on the majestic and unspoilt Cardamom Mountains spotting the rich variety of wildlife, birdlife and flora as you explore the rainforest. Meet the locals and learn about life on the river and in the rainforest. There is so much to see, learn, explore, discover and enjoy in a stay at Canvas & Orchids, just be sure to book a long enough stay!


Rooms


Floating Tented Villas (8 units)

A truly unique glamping experience, the Floating Tented Villas at Canvas & Orchids Retreat were the first floating tents for glamping in Cambodia, and possibly in the world. Set on anchored pontoons directly on the river, guests are perfectly positioned to enjoy the river views and surrounding nature. At 45sqm they comfortably sleep 2 guests as standard on either a large double bed or twin single beds and can sleep a maximum of 3 guests with the addition of the sofa-bed (additional charges apply). Designed with protecting the environment in mind at all times, the Floating Tented Villas enjoy excellent ventilation and are set with ceiling fans and do not need environmentally unfriendly air-conditioning as a result. Clever wastewater management ensures the tents and bathrooms do not pollute the river water. Bathroom amenities are also fully environmentally friendly. Each floating tent is set with a private terrace, ideal for relaxing with a sundowner after an enjoyable day discovering Cambodia’s richly varied and wonderful nature.

Island Tented Villas (5 units)

At 65sqm the two-bedroom Island Tented Villas are perfect for families, comfortably sleeping up to 4 guests with no additional charges and a 5th guest (child) on the sofa bed. Set on the riverbank within the tropical gardens of the retreat each Island Tented Villa is set some 5 to 10metres from the river’s edge making these tents the more young-child friendly choice for families. One of the bedrooms is set with a large double bed, and the second bedroom is set with twin single beds. Both bedrooms share the brick-built en-suite bathroom which is fitted with a walk-in shower. Along with the Floating Tents at Canvas & Orchids Retreat the Island Tented Villas have been designed with protecting the environment as a priority and do not need environmentally unfriendly air-conditioning as they enjoy excellent ventilation and are set with ceiling fans. Clever wastewater management ensures the tents and bathrooms do not pollute the river water and the bathroom amenities are also fully environmentally friendly.
