The Columns, Kampot

Mid-range - ££


The Columns is built in a restored French colonial house, and has a charming laid-back vibe that will make you feel right at home. The river is just around the corner, and as you watch it roll lazily by, you’ll find yourself getting drawn into the slow rhythm of life in this picturesque Cambodian town.

The local fish market is just a five-minute saunter away, and a little further out are Kampot‘s renowned pepper plantations.

This boutique hotel has a sociable but cosy feel. Its 17 rooms feature hand-crafted decor and wooden furnishings, lending the place an authentic and distinctly Cambodian touch. To really immerse yourself in the charm of your architectural surroundings, opt for the deluxe balcony rooms. With views over the peaceful street below, their balconies are the ideal spot to soak up the ambience.


There’s plenty to discover nearby: Kampot is close to the coast and the stunning landscapes of Preah Monivong National Park, so this is an option we’d thoroughly recommend!

After a busy day out, guests can refuel at the hotel’s restaurant which offers a range of tasty traditional meals (we hear that its breakfasts and coffee are pretty good, too)!

If all that exploring leaves you short for time, there’s even an in-house wash and fold laundry service.

Why We Love It
