Where Luxury Meets Sustainability  

Visit Our Kep West Site


Luxury and Intimacy in Coastal Cambodia

During French rule, Kep was Cambodia’s premier seaside destination, widely known as “the St. Tropez of South-East Asia.” Here at Knai Bang Chatt, we have worked with French architect Francoise Lavielle to restore and remodel these stunning colonial villas.


They are now the centrepiece of an impeccably designed coastal resort which features plush rooms, an infinity pool overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, world-class cuisine, and much more. We treat our guests to a combination of privacy and personalized service, and enable them to discover the splendours' of Cambodia and its wonderful people. We achieve all this while being the most environmentally aware and socially conscious hotel in all of Cambodia.

Why We Exist

Knai Bang Chatt is the personification of the notion that traveling can be an artistic endeavor. We think that most so-called travel is essentially tourism, which is predictable, mass-produced, and unaware of its surroundings.


At Knai, we provide the chance to travel in luxury guilt-free, to feel refreshed while still exciting the senses, and to savour the finer things in life without destroying the environment. Above all, an environment where traveling can be a thought-provoking experience that advances personal development.


We make compassionate investments in our local ecology and society so that traveling becomes about sharing and growing rather than consuming and staying the same.

Authentic Private Rooms

All our rooms are hand-crafted down to the tiniest detail. They offer privacy, shelter, and supreme comfort. At Knai Bang Chatt, we want to offer you a luxurious home away from home, and we do everything we can throughout your stay at Kep West to make this a reality.
