Comfort on the riverfront

Kampot River Rd, Kampot T: (012) 235 102, (012) 274 820, (017) 306 557


This is easily the best and most professionally run riverside option in downtown Kampot.

Photo of Rikitikitavi The name is a bit of a tongue twister — it comes from a Rudyard Kipling short story about a spunky little mongoose — but the seven smart ground-floor rooms in this converted rice barn will certainly stick in your mind. Laid out with a subtly Asian theme, the air-con rooms are comfortable with firm mattresses, cable TV (and DVD collection), hot water showers, minibars and safes. The decor is very tasteful while still having flair, with rattan ceilings, wide four-poster wooden beds with soft linens, and large armoires to hide the electronics. The lighting is subdued, with fixtures covered in orange silk. The artwork on the wall is interesting too -- framed old military maps of Cambodia and vintage Cambodian advertisements. The family room comes with a huge king-size and two single beds, with a smaller sofa for the littlest member. The beautifully adapted bar and restaurant upstairs serves outstanding Western food, gorgeous sunset views over Bokor and two for one cocktails for the sunset happy hours of 17:00 to 19:00. Popular with expats and returning guests, you're best to book ahead if you've got your heart set on staying here. Former guests rave about this place and its owners, whom we too found to be helpful and kind. They seem genuinely excited about what they do for a living and where they live. The rate includes breakfast, which is a proper affair, with a selection of fruit, breads, crepes and eggs.
