Koh Kong – 4 Rivers Floating Lodge
Koh Kong is a quaint border province that has long had a reputation as a ‘Wild West’ frontier location. Situated at the southwestern tip of the country near the mouth of the Kah Bpow River, the city is only 10 kilometres from the Thai border. Koh Kong has a long coastline and a large forested interior that embraces part of the Cardamom Mountains and a section of Kirirom National Park.
The province is linked to Phnom Penh and Preah Sihanouk Province via Sre Ambel by National Route 4. A drive on this road is highly recommend to those who love nature; the road winds through some of Cambodia’s least developed and unspoiled regions – the Cardamom Mountains. Amidst thick forest, streams and charming waterfalls, the adventure rewards with scenic sites for great photography.
Why is the 4 Rivers Floating Lodge special?
- Boutique environmentally friendly resort
- African style tented villas
- Remote location in the lush forested slopes of the Cardamons
Away from the tourist trail to ancient civilisations there is another country . . . a land of unspoilt virgin forest, rare orchids and fragrant frangipani, the startling colours and calls of birds of paradise and secretive jungle creatures.
Nestled amongst this virgin rainforest, 12 African style tented villas rest on the river. Whilst all tents have modern amenities they will be no match for the natural wonders on view from your private sun lounger balcony.
With nature being the order of the day there is much to do from the resort, kayak down river with an experienced guide, take an excursion to Tatai Waterfalls, swim in the river or stroll through the forested slopes of the Cardamons, considered to harbour more than 100 mammal species including numerous endangered species such as clouded leopard, pileated gibbon and Malaysian sun bear. After a day of exploration relax by the restaurant terasse and enjoy a cocktail with amazing views of the sun setting.
