Located three hours to the southwest of Phnom Penh on a private nature sanctuary, this ecolodge is set on an 865-acre site in a wildlife corridor between the Bokor and Kirirom national parks and surrounded by a forested landscape dominated by the peaks of the Cardamom Mountains. The camp is dramatically situated at the edge of a ravine and comprises 15 opulent tented accommodations erected on stilts. The personal project of the renowned architect and designer Bill Bensley, its interiors reflect his theatrical and baroque style, with public areas resembling those of an old-fashioned colonial-style safari camp, complete with brass fixtures, leather chairs, steamer trunks and crystal tumblers and decanters. Lavish tented villas, featuring huge elevated decks, outdoor tubs, dining tables and vibrant animal-print sofas, feel like romantic private worlds in which to luxuriate and unwind. The property has an excellent restaurant serving locally sourced Cambodian cuisine, a black lap pool surrounded by tropical forest and a small hilltop spa. Guests can accompany rangers onto hikes into the surrounding protected areas.
