When we arrived in Kampot having read some amazing reviews about Samon Village we were expecting something special, and thats exactly what we got. This is a tranquil, peaceful setting next to the riverbank, with an amazing set up of buildings that included our $8 a night bungalow. The food is beyond exceptional, it was actually some of the best food we tasted in the whole of Cambodia, and you eat in the relaxing setting of the restaurant. I cannot recommend this place any more, spend some time here and you will leave a person more at peace with themselves. We had booked one night but ended up staying for a week. Also the owners are just fantastic, but then pretty much everyone we met in Cambodia was fantastic.
The only negative was that our bed was a mattress on the top floor of the bungalow, which was made from bamboo and a bit uneven, so after a few nights our backs were a little sore. Other than that we absolutely loved it.
