Bokor Mountain Lodge is a boutique hotel, restaurant and bar on the riverfront in Kampot, Cambodia. It has undergone a dramatic and extensive refurbishment, and this beautiful old building has once again taken its rightful place in the lives of expats, tourists and locals alike. Nestling on the banks of the Kampong Bay River (Prek Kampong Bay), which flows into the Gulf of Thailand, the Lodge is set amid wonderfully evocative crumbling French colonial architecture. In this setting, it is impossible not to dream of an age gone by while dining or sipping drinks in the bar and passing the time of day with Kampot's friendly and sociable local residents.
Cruise up the river and watch the sunset or relax over a gorgeous 'fish amok' in our restaurant as another day drifts past and you'll begin to realize why Kampot is such a tricky place to leave!
Idyllic Kampot is a 2 to 2 1/2 hour run from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh, forming a perfect loop on the way to the beaches of Sihanoukville. With its location between the Gulf of Thailand and the Elephant mountains, Kampot offers a cool tropical climate for most of the year. This makes it comfortable to explore the many wonderful sites this province has to offer, from the seaside town of Kep nearby, to the crystal clear waters of Teuk Chhou river rapids and, of course, the dramatic ghost town and new resort on top of Bokor mountain. There is plenty to do, as well as relax and recuperate in one of Cambodia's most interesting and typical towns.
