Le Relais de Chhlong

Kratie | First Class

Rising from the banks of the Mekong River almost like a mirage, it’s hard to believe that this charming colonial property could exist in the small rural village of Chhlong, around 30 minutes from Kratie.

Originally built in 1916, Le Relais has been carefully restored and extended with a keen eye for both period detail and modern comfort. The ten suites all have separate master bedrooms, living rooms, and terraces, where guests can enjoy views of either the Mekong, or the well-tended tropical gardens. The décor leans very much towards muted and relaxed tones, complimented by subtle art deco touches.

Food is also a highlight of any stay at the property, and La Terrasse restaurant offers fine Khmer and European dining in a traditional wooden house on stilts over the river. For those looking for an aperitif or a nightcap, ‘Le Bar’ in the main building has a surprisingly extensive selection of soft drinks, wine and cocktails.

When not exploring Kratie and the island of Koh Trong or trying to spot the area’s famous Irrawaddy dolphins, guests can also wander the friendly nearby village. Alternatively the inviting riverside swimming pool is a great place to relax.

We Say
Le Relais is back! Its been closed, renovated, there have been whispers of a reopening, closed, sold, purchased, forgotten and now is actually open again!
