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.

A bas-relief carving in Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

From the splendour of the Khmer Empire to the chilling brutality of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia has had a tumultuous history. For nearly six centuries, between the fall of Angkor and the rise of Communism, the kingdom lay buried in obscurity, forgotten by the rest of the world.
