“BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

we didnt stay but our friends did & they loved the place. We did however eat there & also enjoy a Traditional Khmer Celebration & buffet there for the Chinese NY! WOW. The food was amazing, the band amazing & the whole night was just fantastic!

We ate there a few times & everything was really good. It was my favourite spot to sit & relax in Kampot. We stayed a few bungalows away at Naga House so we'd walk there to eat.

I highly recommend this place for the restaurant!

The best:
*Khmer food
*Beautiful bungalows
*Great porch where to relax, read, listen to Khmer music...
*Staff
*Great place to sleep
*Near a beautiful little village
*Close and far from Kampot at the same time :-)

The worst:
*Food and drinks are too expensive
*They didn't tell us they had dorms available when we got there, they would only show us the most expensive rooms and only after we asked many times they told us about cheaper rooms.
*Do not buy tickets there, the guy was trying to sell us a ticket to Phom Phenn for $20 when the real cost is $8!
*The bike that we rented for $5 was dangerous to drive, better to get them in town in a place where you can choose and try them ahead
*When we were there 2 people got things stolen from them
*Dirty public toilet (they didn't empty the bin for 3 days, it never had toilet paper...)
*Bring a flash light if you go to the town and return walking :-)

Stayed 3 nights at Samon's Village in one of their beautiful bungalows. Staff were vey friendly and helpful, everything was very clean, and the location is gorgeous. Great value as well. Location is great as well, right on the river, perfect for a quick dip. Lovely lounge area, very peaceful. LOTS of mosquitoes at. Night though!

Room Tip: Bungalow with e suite is spacious and good value.

Being very well received by Samon , we could enjoy the peace and beauty of this great village. If you are looking for getting close to nature , learn about Cambodia`s culture , music and food this is the right place. Pretty reasonable prices also !
Thanks Samon for providing us this great weekend !

Stayed here for 3 nights, the bungalows are basic with a bed, fan and we had an ensuite bathroom with cold water. They are very clean and basically all you need for your stay and at only 15$ per night who can complain. There is a commual area with wifi and great food. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here most nights and it was great. On Saturday they have Khmer family that come and play music and buffet for 7$ plus games and dancing which was great. At night everyone hung out and chilled with a few drink in the commural area and by day you can rent kayaks or swim in the river. We loved this place and can not wait to come back and stay here again.

we were staying in a hotel in kampot and just went out for a walk one day and came across samons village , how lucky . we asked samon if he had any bungalows available but he said he was fully booked but if we wanted he could set up a bed for us outside in the communal area, we thought about it for a moment and said yes.
what a great decision , we had a fabulous night under the stars and waking up with the sun . the following day samon got us a bungalow so we could stay an extra couple of nights they are very basic but all you need . we spoke at length with samon who told us his plans for the place which involve very much keeping the khymer lifestyle alive . overall its a great place with superb staff great food great traditional music would definately like to go back in a couple of years and see the place the way he wants it .because i can see it evolving all the time .
well done samon .
