Knai Bang Chatt Resort Kep, Cambodia

At Knai Bang Chatt, seventies-style architecture combines with 21st century facilities, timeless local cuisine, a superb beachside setting and a chilled atmosphere – creating complete relaxation.

The architecture could have come straight from the 1970s. Angular shapes and huge open frames revealing panoramic stretches of ocean. Polished floors and romantically tented beds set on trestle platforms. They all conspire to give Knai Bang Chatt its own style. Everywhere you look you’ll find some feature that creates a sense of wonder – this is not a formulaic international hotel.

Visit during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Cambodia and you’ll find it’s not just the design that benefits from individuality and character. The hotel’s cuisine is a unique combination of Cambodian and Khmer specialities and international dishes – and its atmosphere is an engaging mix of careful attention to detail, attentive but nonintrusive service and feel-at-home relaxation. Amplified by the closeness of the Gulf of Thailand.
