Knai Bang Chat offers a signature blend of privacy & personalised service

Knai Bang Chatt is a favourite with travellers to Cambodia for many reasons. The location seems too good to be true, being in the enchanting fishing village of Kep, an off-the-beaten-track destination which is reflective of the rustic and untouched Cambodian south coast. The interior design is fresh, natural and minimalist, with each room individually decorated with historic Khmer relics.

Knai Bang Chatt is dedicated to ensuring guests' privacy and personalised service

The resort prides itself on its signature blend of privacy and personalised service, offering spacious, relaxed comfort alongside a range of activities and rentals for the family to choose from. Facing the beautiful ocean, it is hard not to fall in love with this idyllic spot and its historic ambience.

The untouched south Cambodian coastline offers travellers a quiet hideaway from a much faster-paced world of new developments. This is the philosophy of Knai Bang Chatt, which strives to offer adventurous and peace-seeking travellers with a rustic and unspoilt getaway from the busy world.

Only a five-minute walk to the Crab Market, the resort is perched next to the ocean, providing guests with the perfect location to experience this phenomenal part of Cambodia. Focused on celebrating understated elegance and the beauty of imperfection, the grounds showcase the best of teak furnishings, earthy tones and serene outside landscaping. 

The pool, which is perched next to the garden that gently slopes into the beach, is one of the resort’s most loved areas. As well as having an exclusive beach location, the resort is next to the sailing club, which offers sailing courses for all abilities, a range of activities and rentals from kayaks to motorbikes, and it's also home to an elegant restaurant and bar, which serves phenomenal crab dishes.

Being a specialist in holistic relaxation, Knai Bang Chatt has established yoga and meditation programmes, plus a spa offering natural treatments. The resort can help plan an array of unique excursions and private dining experiences, such as a candlelit meal on a private jetty.

Guests can jump into the ocean from the Sailing Club jetty, rooms can be joined together to accommodate large groups, and families can even watch a movie in the media room if they wish. The Knai Bang Chatt allows you the freedom to make your stay unique to you. 


The Property

Comprised of 11 rooms and suites divided across three grand villas, Knai Bang Chatt is the ideal gateway to private minimalist living. Perfect for couples and families, the rooms and suites vary greatly in features and layout, and we love the choice that this gives each traveller. Upgrades can provide you with amenities such as a double-sized bathtub, a private terrace, and a separate lounge area. Each room offers vistas of the garden or ocean, with every villa featuring a shared open terrace facing the ocean. 

Guests are lucky to stay in close proximity to one of Kep’s only high-end restaurants, The Strand, which is situated on-site. The restaurant uses locally-caught seafood and vegetables, as well as quality imported ingredients for rich, yet healthy, dishes. 


Knai Bang Chatt is home to a wealth of luxury amenities, including water and sports activities, as well as a media room, infinity pool and wellness programmes.



The resort is home to the fine dining spot, The Strand, which uses local ingredients to make fresh dishes. A range of drinks can be found here and also at the Sailing Club restaurant.
