4 Rivers Floating Lodge – Cambodia

4 Rivers Floating Lodge

Featuring 12 Overwater Tented Villas, the 4 Rivers Floating Lodge is one of Cambodia’s most unusual and highly acclaimed hotels. The setting on the otherwise pristine river is breathtaking and the service the lodge provides is reminiscent of a resort that would charge several times more. The tented villas are large and well appointed, and the ceiling fan combined with river breezes keeps them comfortable at all times.

The restaurant has an acclaimed chef preparing local and international dishes, but the lodge is also a short boatride away from local fishing villages where guests can buy fresh fish and lobsters and have them prepared. Considering the reasonable room rates, the 4 Rivers Floating Lodge offers fantastic value along with something guests won’t ever forget.
