“Totally beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

and so relaxing. Although there are some things missing - (laundry facilities, TV, beauty parlour) that a big hotel supplies they are NOT missed at all. From the minute the driver met us in Pnom Pehn we were looked after handsomely. Our stay was delightful from all the food which was amazing to the location - truly spectacular and the kayaks for doing the only hard work we did (well paddling round the island was slightly aerobic!) I cannot recommend this enough for a truly chill out stay among friends - I don't know when (there is a big world out there to explore) but we will go back.

Room Tip: The end two rooms, one at the end of each arm of the hotel - are the quietest but really there is no...

Hi janCrete_Greece,

This is wonderful! You remembered to write this beautiful review about us, 7 months from your date of stay with us. This means so much to our team, thanks a lot!

We cannot provide the laundry service because most of our crew are coming from the neighboring villages, and are extremely difficult to train on simple service standards, and we've experienced tearing the guests' clothings...sadly. This is because our crew want so much to impress our guests, but it takes a long time for them to grasp the learnings we give them. But we are committed to involving this community to be part of our endeavor, to protect this special rainforest around 4Rivers.

By hiring the villagers, they do not have time anymore to hunt the wild in the Cardamoms, and to do illegal logging.

This is why every review, especially the very nice ones, is VERY SPECIAL AND IMPORTANT to our team, because this helps us continue doing what we do best at 4Rivers... to create that remarkably unique experience aboard our floating hotel, that could be remembered a lifetime!

Thank you very much!!!

Sincerely yours,

Anna Pawlik-Szocs

My girlfriend and I stayed at 4 Rivers for 3 nights in early April. The resort was exactly what was described in the website (www.ecolodges.asia). It was one of the most peaceful, relaxing experiences of our lives (we are 54 and 53). The food EXCELLENT and the staff was very professional and courteous. Everyone was focused on ensuring that all guests were enjoying themselves. If you are looking to get lost for a few days, this is your place. Make sure you get to Tatai Falls and get out into the jungle for a trek. Utterly Fantastic!!!

A highlight of our trip to Cambodia staying here, such a lovely destination floating on a river in tents! Tent rooms where lovely with our own deck and being able to jumb in the river for a swim. Anna and her team where lovely, the food was great and being able to kayak across to the island was great. The nights where so peaceful only the plop of fish jumping in the river and the sounds of the jungle coming alive in the morning. Well worth the experience.

Room Tip: Only 12 tents so all excellent

Hi Sue J,

I am so thrilled to read your review :)

Thank you and N for being very nice to us also... N's suggestions on how we could improve the "engineering" aspect of the place had been the agenda of my meetings with the maintenance team. Please send my biggest thanks to N!

I certainly hope to welcome you again at 4Rivers soon...

With warmest thanks,

A tranquil oasis in the jungle, and for those who like to get away from the mad rush of the developed world, paradise. A lovely spot on the bend of a great river, where the breezes provide welcome relief from the heat and ensure very few little biters disturb your stay. Lovely, friendly staff, and huge and well-appointed bedroom/suite tent. The swimming pool is the river. A tad on the expensive side but worth it. Food good if not top-notch. As everywhere we stayed in Cambodia, reasonable wine at reasonable prices. Very good excursions – we arrived on our wedding anniversary, and signed up for the sunset cruise down-river. We turned out to be the only two on the boat apart from two crew, and got a wonderful, atmospheric sunset over the jungle with a backdrop of towering clouds as we sipped our fizz and a storm with plenty of lightning doused the resort. After dinner we went on another trip (again just us two) to see the fireflies; and then a trip up-river to see the falls next day. Perfect for a long weekend.

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a tour of Cambodia and thought it was a wonderful experience.. The place is really so unusual and in such a peaceful setting. The food is good and the people are very friendly and helpful and the tents are very comfortable.
The only issues we had were with the swarms of tiny black flies which can get through the fly screens, so when you put your lights on at night you need to let down and zip up the rain screens to stop them getting in, which does make it hot in April. The other issue was with the waterfall boat trip - be aware that this is really a visit to a waterfall to go swimming, rather than a day out enjoying the scenery from a boat. We hadn't realised this when we booked, but decided to just go along with it and said we were happy to just sit in the shade while the other people on the boat swam, however we found the guide to be very rude when he kept asking us (several times) if the was something wrong with us that we wouldn't swim!
Overall I would recommend this as something very different and the chance to see the beautiful Cambodian countryside after a busy time in Phnom Penh / Siem Reap.

Dear Diana014,

Thank you for your kind words in this review...

We have managed to change the balcony lights and replaced them with more subtle lighting, so that there would still be lights to guide you to your tent in the evening, when you go back from the restaurant, without inviting the insects in (with bright lights).

These insects are part of the ecosystem, and we continuously find ways to lessen their attraction to the guest's room. This is why we ensure that upon arrival, guests are informed to zip close the tent screens after the sun has set, and to make sure that the tent curtains are closed when lights in the room are turned on.

I am deeply sorry if you felt bad about how the tour guides approached you. I would have to be honest that the resort managers are giving follow up training to each and every resort crew, as they still have sooooooooo much to learn. They are a big part of the hotel's efforts to remain sustainable. Educating them in being a tour guide, and ensuring customer satisfaction is of utmost importance, because in a way, we are able to educate them as well on how to preserve our surroundings. Thank you for telling us about this, and I will find a way to improve this behavior of our tour guides. They are very enthusiastic, and i am certain that they will be more than willing to receive your feedback.

Once again, Diana. Thank you very much for writing this review.

We hope to be of service to you again in the future!

Best regards,

Anna Pawlik-Szocs
