If you don’t know a lot about Kampot, you’re not alone. A quaint city nestled beneath Cambodia’s Elephant Mountains and perched on the cusp of the Preaek Tuek Chhu River, Kampot has so far remained a precious secret, with few having the pleasure of stumbling upon its beauty and power.
Anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting this Cambodian city has been completely captivated by its magic, the perfect balance of attainable seclusion. Just a short, 5-kilometer ride from the Gulf of Thailand, it gives visitors access to sandy coastal beaches, world-class pepper plantations, and adventures in the Dâmrei and Bokor Mountains.
Sound like the kind of place you’d want to visit? Well, you’re in luck. Amber International Holdings, an international hospitality development firm, is preparing to welcome visitors to this little slice of paradise with its new luxury resort, Amber Kampot.
Amber Kampot was designed to be the meeting space of relaxation and adventure – a place where visitors can unleash their dreams and daring spirit within an environment of five-star amenities, modern design and attentive service.
This luxury resort will be one of the first of its kind in Kampot. Its stunning design takes inspiration from Cambodia’s ancient forest and modern minimalism, integrating wood, neutral colors and plenty of texture to reflect the area’s natural beauty.
Each of Amber Kampot’s suites, villas and private estates has its own private pool and interior garden, while the inside is furnished with supremely soft bedding, spa-like facilities and artisanal touches.
Beyond its private spaces, Amber Kampot delivers all the comforts you’d expect from a five-star luxury resort, including a world-class spa, mystical lounge area, lush rooftop bar, and an onsite restaurant serving mouth-watering dishes made with fresh, local produce.
“Travelling to unique destinations, like Kampot, encourages us to expand our horizons and exposes us to some of the planet’s most spectacular sights, sounds, smells and tastes. We look forward to introducing a resort that combines the calms of luxury with the excitement of the unknown, and helping people reawaken their adventuring spirit.” – Taihei Yamada, Founder of Amber International Holdings
Kampot is expected to see a boom in growth over the next few years and will soon be one of the hottest destinations in Asia. According to Tourism Cambodia, the city is expected to bring in in 1.9 million tourists and $13 million in international tourism receipts in 2019, with an additional 442,000 visitors arriving by 2022 thanks to the new Kampot Ferry Terminal.
Along with a five-star hotel, the resort is also offering investment opportunities, including exclusive pool suites and villas with eight days of free stay per year.
Amber Kampot is set to open in late 2020, giving you plenty of time to put it at the top of your bucket list. To learn more and stay updated on its progress and opening dates, you can follow Amber Kampot on Instagram.
