Our top recommendations for where to stay in Kampot, Cambodia.
The laid back riverside town of Kampot is one of our favorite weekend getaways in Cambodia. Located only 2-3 hours outside of Phnom Penh, the country’s capital, Kampot is a beautiful breath of fresh air and green when we need a break from city life.
We go to Kampot at least once every couple of months, and have tried out many different places to stay both in town and on the river. The following bungalows and hotels are our favorite places we have been in Kampot so far. We will update this list when we find new places worth recommending!
Prices are for private double rooms. We have listed the accommodation in order from least to most expensive. All photos are our own.

Eden Eco Village offers a truly local experience and a chance to get off the beaten path.

Compost is recycled and there are even composting toilets. The fertilizer is used for the on-site mango orchard and other organic farming.
The property is beautiful, with green palm trees and fruit trees swaying as gentle breezes blow in from the water. All bungalows on the property overlook the river, some on the water’s edge and others on stilts, with patio doors opening up to the river. The food is healthful and delicious, and there is a creative cocktail menu. Most food used in cooking is grown on the property, and the rest is sourced locally from 50km away or less.
Eden Eco Village encourages guests to support local businesses in the community and suggests different itineraries to follow independently using the free bicycles available. Eden Eco Village is a comfortable and gorgeous place to enjoy the river and relax, immersing yourself in Cambodian village life in style.
