Cambodia Honeymoons

There are few more exotic honeymoon destinations than Cambodia, a country whose holiday-worthy reputation has been built around one of the world’s most breathtaking man-made wonders but which also boasts unspoiled beaches, virgin jungles and fascinating cities.

Your honeymoon will be an adventure first and foremost – the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat temples are, of course, going to play an important part in your holiday, but you should make an effort to really explore the Khmer Kingdom – you’ll be richly rewarded.

Alongside numerous places of cultural and historical interest there are miles of empty sands in the south, the unique capital city of Phnom Penh and the untamed north-east. 

To the south, there is Kep and Sihanoukville as well as exciting honeymoon possibilities for the more wanderlust newlyweds: the dusty streets of Kratie town or the elephants of Mondulkiri to the east. 

To the west lie the wildlife-rich Cardamom Mountains, amongst the last true wildernesses remaining in South-East Asia, and Koh Kong with its countless miles of untamed jungle.


Why choose Cambodia?

  • No visitor to Cambodia should miss out on the spectacular Angkor Temples; they're every bit as wonderful as you've heard. It's important to allow enough time to see enough of the highlights in the vicinity of Angkor Wat, and there are some further lying temples which are well worth a visit if you want to escape the crowds.
  • The lesser visited provinces to the east of Cambodia are certainly more suited to honeymooners with a real sense of wanderlust and desire to escape 'the trail'.
  • There is a selection of interesting day trips in the vicinity of Phnom Penh, including team favourites such as Phnom Oudong and the Rice Bank Project at Daem Po.
  • During the country’s dry season (November to May) many honeymooners will be in search of some beach. The best sands on the mainland are at Sihanoukville, but we prefer the ambiance of Kep or the impressive offshore islands of the Koh Rong Archipelago and neighbouring islands.
  • For a touch of romance, there are luxurious Tonlé Sap cruises ranging from three to seven days, and a number of less-visited towns and regions that are well worth incorporating into your honeymoon, depending on the length of your stay.

Cambodia combines particularly well with Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar & Thailand.

One country not enough?

We can also combine countries to create multi-destination honeymoons. Vietnam and Cambodia are a classic combination, and we'd advise that you start on the hectic streets of Hanoi before travelling south through Vietnam and crossing into Cambodia, finishing at the unbeatable Angkor Temples.

Stephen, tailor-made travel specialist

The Angkor Temples are surely the perfect ending to any honeymoon, most visitors are utterly mesmerised by the sheer scale of the temples and intricate detail of the carvings within.

Tatai River

The lush Tatai River region, below the Cardamom Mountains in Cambodia's south-west, is a beautiful natural area that's perfect for romantic R&R. One of our favourite places to hide away and enjoy the jungle is the 4 Rivers Floating Lodge, where you can stay in a stylish safari tent that's pitched on a floating platform, moored against the riverbank.

The tents have all the mod cons you'd expect from a deluxe hotel room, and offer superb views of the Cardamom Mts, as well as a fine dining restaurant, which is connected to your lodge by a floating walkway.

You can only get there by boat (10 minutes along the river) and it's a perfect spot for relaxation, as well as kayaking through the surrounding mangrove forests.

Bride’s day

If you're a groom (or bride - it works just as well both ways!) wanting to add an unexpected treat or adventure to the honeymoon, our 'Bride's Day' approach is the answer. Whether it's some surprise pampering, an unexpected day of adventure, or a unique VIP experience for your loved one, our honeymoon specialists will be happy to take care of it - in strict confidence, of course.

It doesn't matter whether you have something specific or quirky in mind, or you need some ideas from someone who's been there before you - just get in touch, let us know what you're thinking, and we'll make sure that your surprise is personal, perfect... and secret!
