Sabay Beach is a small and wildly romantic resort tucked away along the riverside in Kampot, southern Cambodia.

The restaurant and bar overlook the Preaek Tuek Chhu river and have the most awesome view of the Bokor Mountain range.  Sabay Beach bar is the best place to see the sunset in Kampot.

The guestrooms are clean, decorated beautifully and are discretely scattered throughout the grounds. Each room possesses its own dreamy and ultimately unique charm. We highly recommend Sabay Beach for any visitors to the area. It is at the top of our list of places to stay in Kampot.

Kampot Province is located on the southern coastline of Cambodia. It is around 3 miles from the Gulf of Thailand. It borders with Vietnam. The city of Kampot is on the Preaek Tuek Chhu River and the province is famous for its pepper plantations. Not only is it famous for its pepper plantations but also for its salt fields.

Kampot has many French colonial style buildings that date back to the end of the 19th century. One example is The Governor’s Mansion, a well-preserved building which now houses The Kampot Provincial Museum.

Kampot was once a major port, although, now it is quiet riverside town. It still holds much of its charm but is rapidly gaining popularity. It is especially appealing to environmentally conscious foreigners and locals looking for a slower pace.

The Kampot region is internationally famous for pepper. A great trip for any visitor in the area is to an organic pepper farm where they strive not just to grow some of the world’s best pepper but to educate people about the spice.

It is a spice that is all too often taken for granted but anybody trying fresh peppercorns for the first time straight from the pepper vine will certainly experience a new flavour entirely.
