Knai Bang Chatt
Kep

This intimate and discreet luxury hotel is Kep's original boutique retreat. Knai Bang Chatt provides unique experiences whilst respecting local culture, working closely with the surrounding community to help promote sustainable improvements to the education, health and livelihoods - as well as establishing a true green footprint with the aim to reduce their carbon emissions by 50%.

A 2-hour drive from Phnom Penh or a short 45-minute flight followed by a scenic hour drive from Siem Reap, this boutique hotel is located on Cambodia’s southern coast in the tiny coastal village of Kep. The property comprises of 18 spacious en-suite rooms which are scattered amongst lush and private grounds of this Belgium owned hotel. The rooms are all tastefully furnished with local antiques and artefacts, with a focus upon on purity, simplicity and understated elegance in design. The hotel works on a “less is more” ethos, which extends to a no TV policy in the rooms, so you can really have the chance to relax and rejuvenate.

The iconic infinity pool acts as the focal point of this property and provides the ideal spot to unwind or exercise while overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. For those looking to take it easy, relax in the peaceful surroundings or indulge in the spa treatments on offer by well-trained therapists who give the best of Khmer and Asian massages. On top of this, yoga and meditation sessions are part of daily activities here.

The Strand is Knai Bang Chatt’s signature fine dining restaurant which creates culinary dishes from local tastes and organic produce. The Sailing Club is home to a more low-key and casual vibe, serving up Western food and classic cocktails – with killer views over the aquamarine sea! The Sailing Club, as the name suggests, also offers water sport activities, including sailing, surfing, canoeing and beach volleyball. Bikes are also available through the activity centre as well as additional excursions to fully experience the local culture, our favourite being the boat trip to Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island) where you can enjoy snorkelling, sunbathing and a beach barbecue of fresh seafood.

Knai Bang Chatt provides a dreamy end to a tour of Cambodia, as the tropical paradise is a welcome relief after a packed itinerary touring the temples of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap and Cambodia’s other cultural sites.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
