Canvas and Orchids Retreat
Asia’s first floating tented resort, Canvas and Orchids Retreat is set on the Tatai River in the midst of a pristine natural wonderland, surrounded by rainforest filled with a rich variety of wildlife in the shadow of the enigmatic Cardamom mountains, and to add to the adventure and sense of truly being off the beaten path, Canvas and Orchids is only accessible by boat. A truly unique experience, the luxury tents are designed by the same teams that make Africa's famously luxurious safari tents, offering the height of comfort while allowing guests to be totally immersed within the surrounding nature. Canvas and Orchids Retreat is one of the best and certainly one of the most unique boutique hotels in Cambodia today, and we can safely say that very few resorts put as much care into providing travellers with a one-of-a-kind experience as Canvas and Orchids Retreat does. The accomodation is a mix of 8 floating tents and 5 inland family tents. The floating tents are 1 bedroom and comfortably sleep up to 3 guests, and the the larger inland family tents, at 65sqm, these tents can comfortably sleep up to 5 guests in their 2 bedrooms. All the tents are African-safari inspired tents with large windows to enjoy the breathtaking natural beauty surrounding you. Each of the spacious 45sqm Floating Tents and 65sqm Inland Family Tents comes fully equipped with all the amenities a modern eco-conscious traveller would expect, from eco-friendly furnishings all sourced and hand-made locally to the clever water systems that ensure no grey water from the tents enters the river. Tents are kept cool through good ventilation and the use of fans, removing the need for environmentally unfriendly and wildlife disturbing air-conditioners. Beds are large and comfy, dressed in luxury bed linens and can be made as large double beds or twin single beds. The en-suite bathrooms rival those found in any boutique hotel, with a walk-in rain shower and 'his and her' basins and vanity units. All the bathroom amenities provided are designed to be environmentally friendly from the biodegradable toothbrushes to the eco-sentsitive soaps and lotions. Canvas and Orchids also features an excellent restaurant serving both Asian, local and International cuisine, a well stocked bar, a massage spa, WiFi is available in the common areas, airport transfers, and a fascinating range of activities and tours to discover the local area and learn about the cultures and communities that call this region home.
