    Canvas and Orchids is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. Such a beautiful relaxing setting, we loved jumping straight into the water from our decking and exploring the river on kayaks. The staff went above and beyond to look after us...

Property info

Glamping with a conscience. An enchanted encounter with Mother Nature where you find yourself enveloped in her splendor everywhere you set your sights upon. Feel the calmness that is embodied in the quietly flowing river and the majesty of the Cardamom Mountains in the background. Give your senses a feast by listening to the songs of the birds, watching the changing cloud formations, the sun rising from behind the misty mountains and spectacular sunsets that delight you with four dazzling colors at the very least, and on days when the weather is just right, a magical synchronized light show brought to you by thousands upon thousands of fireflies. All this beauty is complemented by the quiet luxury afforded by remarkable floating tents, which spare no effort in ensuring your comfort. Each tent is carefully furnished with the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel, with the outstanding feature of providing you with the experience of jumping into the Tatai river for a quick swim or a kayak ride right from your own balcony! Great efforts have been undertaken in the design and construction of these exceptional floating tents, which are unique in all of the world.

Neighborhood info

At the moment, you are in a place in Southeast Asia that is like no other place you have been…welcome to the province of Koh Kong that is home to the largest mangrove forest system and one of the largest protected forests in Southeast Asia. Very, very special indeed! The Cardamom Mountains provide essential ecosystem services upon which people depend, namely water. The monsoon rains fall heaviest on the Cardamom Mountain's plateau – the source of several nationally significant rivers – making this the primary watershed for one-third of Cambodia. The tours to nearby waterfalls, fishing villages and neighboring communities are conducted by guides and boatmen who have lived in these villages for most of their lives. The boats for these tours are prepared anticipating your every possible need and the guides conduct these tours with the joy and warmth of one who is taking friends around one’s own community.
