Cardamom Cottages

Chi Pat | Other

Off the beaten track in the remote village of Chi Pat, the Cardamom Cottages are cosy havens to return to after a full day of hiking. Nestling in the foothills of the Cardamom Mountains, a stay here gives you a glimpse into rural Cambodian life and allows you space and time to explore this beautiful region.

The cottages themselves are simple and welcoming. Being raised on stilts, combined with the dark wood and bamboo construction, gives them a treehouse-like appeal. The light coming in through the large windows casts dappled shapes on the floor and walls which adds to the effect. The rooms are simply furnished with good-sized wooden beds, net canopies, fans and heavy curtains to keep out the light when you want to sleep in! Cool air circulates well during the day while the thickly thatched roof keeps things snug if the temperature drops. Every cottage has its own ensuite bathroom with Western-style facilities, and each has a terrace where you can take the weight off your feet in the evenings and watch the sun go down.

Backing onto the complex is the owner’s restaurant, the Danatra Kitchen, where you can enjoy a selection of local Khmer dishes and they’ll even make you packed lunches to take with you on your treks. As Chi Pat is a CBET ecotourism area, you are encouraged to reduce waste by refilling water bottles to take with you too. WiFi and electricity are only available for a few hours each day so, when the lights go out at the end of the evening, you can enjoy the freedom of being ‘offline’ as you gaze at the night sky in its full, un-light-polluted glory.
