Had such a good time staying here, lying with happy hour cocktails in a tube on the lake was bliss. The sunset boat tour was a lot of fun too, shout out to pony and spidey for making it such a laugh. Stayed here for 3 nights in a private room - so cheap when split between 2 and

This place offer a nice break between visits of pepper farms, Bokor, etc. You can spend the day having fun and meeting other people. Private room are good, no luxury but everything is there including hot water. The only drawback was the quality of food served and the price of

This place is about 15-20min drive from the town of Kampot so you need to be sure that you want to stay that far out from the town. This was a downfall for me. If you are young and looking for a party, then look no further than here. The staff are great and there was a great

which airport would you fly into and how would you suggest getting there?
You could fly into Phnom Penh and take a mini van bus to Krong Kampot. It’s about a 3 hour drive. any bus company can arrange it for you. Once in kampot you can rent motorbikes for 5$ a day right near the bus station and it’s about a 15 min. Ride from there! Or you can take a 5$ tuk tuk. Alternatively you could fly into Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam (which is what I did) the flights are way cheaper and very easy to get a bus to Cambodia. they handle the visa process and then continue on to Kampot.

Is the water safe to go in? As in do people get sick from it? Thanks
Hi Jade, We are located about 1km downstream from the dam which collects water from the National Park, so the water is clean and safe. However, we advise that if you have open cuts not to go in the water. Thanks and enjoy.

do you have SUP and kayak over there?
They do have kayaks. Not sure about paddle boards but Greenhouse down the road/river does and you can rent them from there. You could even kayak down from Arcadia to Greenhouse and swap out!

"Skip the dorm and split a private room with a friend for just a little bit more $$"
"book ahead, it does book out. Private rooms much nicer than dorms."
"Rooms are pretty outdoorsy and have bugs but you are in the jungle! For couples choose Nirvana, if not just stick to the dorm!"
"The squawkers has no door, only a curtain and they don't offer a bed sheet to cover yourself, but it's pretty hot so you don't need it!"
"Hobbit house is great value for friends but if you want to sleep, book one of the pricier ones!"
