Knai Bang Chatt

Knai Bang Chatt, Kep, Cambodia

Knai Bang Chatt is an interesting boutique property in Kep that plays an important role in Cambodia's architectural legacy. The hotel consists of three renovated villas built in the 1970s by protégés of Vann Molyvann, who was responsible for much of the country's modernist architecture and was a former pupil of the world renowned architect Le Corbusier.

The 18 rooms take advantage of the original buildings and all offer unique characteristics and minimalist interior design with garden and sea views. Designed as an exclusive getaway, there are no televisions, phones or minibars in the room so that guests can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. With only a limited number of rooms, guests are very well looked after with an attentive team of staff and butler service. There is a restaurant at the beach as well as the adjacent Sailing Club, once a fisherman's house, it now serves as an ideal location for a sundowner at the water's edge or as a dining venue. Additional facilities include a small infinity-edged pool and fitness room.
