Canvas & Orchid Retreat

Cardamon Mountains

Visitors wishing to escape the more developed side of Cambodia's south coast will be delighted to pitch up at the incredible Canvas & Orchids Retreat. Even the somewhat intrepid journey is a pleasure - a 10-minute private boat transfer, passing small riverside villages and mangrove forests.

Each of the resort's luxury tented villas offers a spacious, light retreat with a jungle expedition vibe. Fitted with most of the 'mod cons' you’d expect from a deluxe hotel room (trouser press not included!), this beautiful lodge offers breathtaking views of the Cardamom Mountains and surrounding mangroves. Choose either a floating villa connected by wooden walkway, or a land-based tent tucked amidst the trees.

Location

At the base of the Cardamom Mountains, with towering rainforest as its backdrop. Prepare yourself for a longer transfer - around 4 hours from Sihanoukville airport, and then the final leg by boat - but it's totally worth it.

That extra third night just to kick back was the icing on the cake!

Why we love it

Discover what to expect from staying at Canvas & Orchid Retreat

Slow down

After the heat and bustle of Cambodia's sites and cities, this is the perfect spot to slow down a little for a day or two. Instead of a jam-packed itinerary, here you can set a more relaxed pace by spending an afternoon with a good book by the river, or perhaps trying some gentle paddle-boarding on the calm waters.

Deep in the jungle

We love the bold sense of adventure: set deep in the Cambodian rainforest, awash with sounds of the jungle. And yet, you arrive feeling safe, comfortable and in awe of the luxury setting that has been created, not forgetting all the mod cons it would be a pain to be without. Best of both worlds some might say….

Get active

Climb the slippery rocks of Tatai’s waterfall (nature’s spa), hike through the exotic jungle witnessing the fascinating flora and fauna, and take the opportunity to mingle with the locals on Koh Andet Island. Grab a few extra hours on the water, kayaking or fishing from your private balcony.

Environmental & Cultural Preservation

The management team and 'on board' staff have a strong commitment to environmental and cultural preservation, with much of the lodge being crafted from eco-friendly materials and many of the staff employed from nearby Tatai and Koh Kong. In all operations, everything is carefully thought out to reduce their carbon footprint.
