I was blessed to spend 7 nights at Champa Lodge with Stephane, his wife Yan and family. I was absolutely sublime. I stayed in the Sugar Palm House and the view of the rice paddies is one I still reflect on. The deck is just lovely to sit and chill and watch the canvas in front paint itself. The storm clouds moving across, the turkeys and chickens busy picking away in the fields, the sugar juice man climbing the tree; there is so much life yet simplicity in its finest form. This is rural Cambodia and REAL Cambodia...
The food prepared at Champa Lodge is fresh and gastronomically delightful. Yan's spaghetti Bolognese rivals any Italian...The menu features variety and reflects international flavours, with the Khmer chicken curry, Cha Kdau w/ beef and the Belgium Beer stew being my highlights. There are lovely wines to choice from and a unique selection of Belgium beers. The fresh lime juices are divine.
Poised between the rice paddies and the river, the location is spectacular. Kayaking on the Kampot river and around the loop was for me, therapy...on leaving, I felt like I was leaving home and family. Champa Lodge is just charming :)
