Beautiful location, immpecible staff, excellent food, beautiful scenery. While we did not choose the best season to view wildlife, the knowledge and expertise of the staff and owner Allen added to our appreciation. The kayaking was fantastic! Be prepared for leeches on hikes- it is the jungle .

Spent 2 nights at the camp with a group of friends last month. We had a fantastic time and truly enjoyed our glamping at Cardamom tented camp. Staff were friendly, welcoming and professional. They are very knowledgeable about the jungle and it’s wonders. Accommodation’s great. My twin share tent is spacious with comfy beds and plenty of power points to recharge devices. There’s also lovely hot shower for first thing in the morning. All the electricity comes from a large solar penal outside. Standing fan is provided in the tent and it’s enough to cool the place at night. On the 2nd day we kayaked upstream for an hour or so, followed by an easy trek in the jungle back to the lodge. We got back just before lunch and staff were waiting for us with icy cold towels. In the afternoon we just chilled in the cool river and did the zip line across the river. All meals are included with the package and they were yummy and plentiful. Make sure you understand this is an eco lodge in the middle of the jungle. If you are looking for a pampering, sitting by the pool sipping cocktail kinda holiday then this is not for you at all. But if you want something different and closer to nature and time-out from the bustling city life then you’ll love it.

We stayed for 2 nights in Cardamom tented camp on our honyemoon and absolutely loved it. We were the only guests there and the team looked after us really well. Delicious food. Some great trekking and kayaking back down the river afterwards was amazing, catching sight of some hornbills and monkeys amongst the sunset! The small selection of craft beers to go alongside was the cherry on the cake! Tents were spacious, clean, and we had very little trouble with insects etc. Would thoroughly recommend for anyone looking for something different in South cambodia.

We can't recommend Cardamom Tented Camp highly enough. Amidst the construction zone that is much of Cambodia, spending time here is surreal. Surprisingly comfortable tents erected meters from dense jungle, plentiful and delicious food (chocolate lava cake in the middle of the jungle!?), hikes along remote and trash-free trails, swimming in a calm and gorgeous river, kayaking through deep jungle tributaries, evening boat rides to enjoy the fireflies, and catching sight of gibbons, lizards, and all sorts of other wildlife. Coming from the concrete jungle of Phnom Penh, it was such a delight to know that green places like this still exist in Cambodia. We spent three nights there and would have happily spent more were it not for the "real world" that required us back. Given the remote location (7km from the nearest road; accessible only by a 45-minute boat ride), it is amazing how comfortable the accommodations are. Tents are well-appointed with proper flush toilets, hot water for showers, high quality beds and linens, and solar power for lights and charging basic electronics. While you can choose your breakfast (with western and Khmer options), lunches and dinners are served according to a fixed menu of western-friendly Khmer dishes, topped off with truly incredible western desserts. We brought snacks with us and never touched them because the food was delicious and abundant. Being located in a concession of land in Botum Sakor National Park, the camp's tagline, "your stay keeps the forest standing," is not an exaggeration. Simply by being a guest you are helping conservation efforts in a country that desperately needs them. Go!

The tents are luxurious - running water, hot showers....not at all like camping! The setting is so beautiful, with wildlife all around, kayaking and swimming in the river was wonderful. But most inspiring is the work they do in saving the forest for future generations. Go there!

Nice place. Simple but very cozy and clean tents. The friendly staff will explain you the nature and the animals during the guided trips. A perfect 3 day family adventure getaway. We had a great time. Thanks to the GM Allen. He understands to make you to love the forest and the animals.

One of our best holidays in Cambodia. Cardamom tented camp offers an escape to the still, tranquil beauty of Camobodia’s remote wilderness. Set among magnificent mangrove forests, the camp offers guests an unforgettable experience of the landscape and its wildlife. We can’t say enough about the genuine and accomodating friendly staff and Management of this camp. I wish i could give more than 5 star service. Tents are sparkling clean. such luxury right in the middle of the jungle. This palce has many activities to offer like jungle walk, kayaking, trip to watch firefly at night when its pitch dark under starlit skies (out of the world), zip line or just relax on hammock with views of river and trees. you could easily spend 3-4 days. Best thing for us was almost no network in the camp. which disconnects you and really relax in peace. Food was amazing and simple. We got everyday new menu. i really recommend this place.

The boat ride is beautiful. The staff are great. The food is amazing! It is a great place to relax away from the noise of the city! I would recommend this to anyone who would like to support keeping the forest natural here in the country and for anyone who wants a place for peace and quiet.

I visited when they had just opened back up post covid and was the only guest there. All of the staff went out of their way to ensure I had a great trip. Delicious vegetarian food and brilliant desserts. The accommodation was really comfortable and the bathroom was very clean with a hot, good pressure shower. The trekking and kayaking was great; the guides were very knowledgeable about the different plants and animals. I would highly recommend visiting now to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and reduced rates!

After one has had to take a long drive over poor roads and then a short walk to a river and then a half hour trip on a small boat with only enough room for four guests and their luggage it is wonderful to be welcomed at a beautiful teak open air restaurant and lounge area . The staff were actually waiting with cold towels and cooling drinks. To then discover that have 3 types of gin at the bar is simply breathtaking! The tents are very "glamping" and exceedingly comfortable they even have built in USB charging ports the bedside tables! Food is very good and the service is wonderful. We enjoyed our jungle walks and our river kayaking expeditions. Another highlight was to be welcomed back into camp (at the far edge, well away from the main building) by a staff member waiting there with cold drinks and towels. Made us feel like royalty! There were not very many animals in evidence while we were there but there was evidence that plenty of diverse animals do pass through. We did see the monkeys though and the birdlife and plants were fascinating
