On the riverside around 10 minutes from Kampot, Les Manguiers (The Mango Trees) is a wonderfully simple bungalow property in a stunning setting. You’ll be happy with your carbon footprint too - rooms are fan cooled and have only cold running water. Very very simple but memorable.

Location
3kms from Kampot town in a delightful riverside, rural setting. Good access to town by bicycle, with great views across the river to Mount Bokor.


Review
This is Kampot’s back to nature bungalow resort. Facilities are simple but adequate. What’s special about Les Manquiers is the natural riverside location and lush spacious, grounds.

There are 8 stilted, thatched roofed bungalows and 2 cottages. Bungalows are a comfortable size and are fan cooled. The river location tends to take the edge off the summer heat.

A large open-air kitchen and dining room at the centre of the complex is where many guests choose to spend each meal time. Getting into town is straightforward as well.
Light sleepers might be disturbed by early morning boats on the river, barking dogs and other sounds of rural Cambodia.

This place is especially popular with families for its expansive grounds and river access. Be very careful if your kids can’t swim though.
Staff are very friendly and add to the cosy natural feel of Les Manguiers.


Briefing
Wifi, ensuite bathrooms, fan, communal balcony space, riverside access, hammocks, free bikes and canoes, computer terminals in the restaurant. Breakfast not included.
