Cambodia Escapes & Hideaways

in the bush, From £20
Les Manguiers, Kampot

Situated between the Kampot River (300 m wide) and rice fields, with views across the river to the Elephant range of mountains, Les Manguiers is set in a large garden of Mango trees stretching 800m along the riverbank of the Kampot River. 

This is more of a homestay than a resort and is highly popular as a weekend retreat for expats living in Phnom Penh. The owners, Jean Yves & Sophea, offer maps and useful information on the area. A great place to kick back, swim in the river or explore the Kampot countryside by mountain or boat.

The Kampot river and its tributaries offer great kayaking (which can be rented on site) where you can explore villages, mangrove forests or paddle downstream to a couple of riverside bars, the old colonial era Kampot town itself or even further out to sea and a number of islands.

Nearby is the awe inspiring tabletop mountain of Bokor with its ruined pre Khmer Rouge era casino (now under restoration) atop an escarpment, offering dramatic views to the Gulf of Thailand. For the adventurous, challenging treks through impressive rainforest can be arranged with local guides.

At home there is badminton and petanque to add to the entertainment.
