Twelve luxuriously equipped safari tents on the banks of the Tatai river in Cambodia. Start your day waking up to the sights and muted sounds of the Cardamom mountains. The first ever floating luxury tented camp. Here they have added a watery dimension to glamping!
Like a rare butterfly, Cambodia has emerged from a troubled past to show off its beauty. Away from the tourist trail to Angkor Wat, there is another country... a land of unspoilt virgin forest, rare orchids and fragrant frangipani, the startling colours and calls of birds of paradise, secretive jungle creatures and a perfumed air of peace and solitude. And in the midst of this ecological miracle you will find our environmentally friendly resort that captures the imagination while offering the luxury and high-end facilities of a four-star boutique resort. Peaceful seclusion, privacy, luxury, exclusivity... Leave your imagination at the door, because the Cardamoms will go beyond even your wildest expectations.
Venturing from the camp, our trekking tours into the jungle offer you the chance to discover the customs, beliefs and natural cures of the inhabitants of the Cardamom Mountains and its forests. You can follow the spore of its secretive wildlife and experience the sights and sounds of an untouched tropical paradise. Witness one of the world’s largest rainforests. Rich in natural beauty, Tatai River is your highway to the wonders of the Cardamoms and Southeast Asia’s largest coastal mangrove. Kayak down river with our experienced local guide who will lead you through the mangrove waterways that reach back into the jungle. Indulge yourself with a hydro massage courtesy of the majestic Tatai Waterfalls, team up with some locals and try your hand at fishing for your supper or snuggle up with that special someone during our Sunset Cruise. The river is all things to all people, from trailblazers to romantics.
Remote but accessible, getting to 4 Rivers Floating Lodge is your opportunity to acclimatise yourself to the country, the region and its always smiling, welcoming people. The resort is ideally situated in Tatai, next to the Thai border halfway between Bangkok and Phnom Penh (via Koh Chang). Highway 48 cuts straight through the jungle, with dramatic views of the magnificent Cardamom mountains. Tatai is 20 minutes by car from Koh Kong City, four hours from Phnom Penh or three hours from Sihanoukville. You embark at the steps of the bridge in the village of Tatai; in our boat the trip downstream the bridge to the resort takes less than 10 minutes with our speed boat or 25 minutes with our cruising boat.

With their origins in the safari veldt of Africa's game parks, each of the 12 double and twin-bed tented villas is, at 45sqm, a space age wonder combining luxury with practicality. Cocooned in comfort and surrounded by top-quality furnishings and decoration, each safari tent has flat-screen television, Wi-Fi and mini-bar. Under the expert eye of our resort’s experienced and acclaimed chef and his team, everything from breakfast to an haute cuisine dinner, a barbecue or vegetarian creation are made from fresh produce bought at local markets. All meals are lovingly prepared in a purpose-built kitchen geared to the needs of our guests.
Not that DVD movies, messages and recorded sound will be any match for the natural wonders you will witness from your private extra-large sun-lounger balcony where you can enjoy an afternoon snack or a sunset cocktail. And as the clock ticks on, maybe it’s spoil-yourself time with a refreshing dip in the river or a chance to lounge by the restaurant and enjoy the majestic colours of the setting sun.
The lush forested slopes of the Cardamoms are a perfect hiding place for the rare Javan rhinoceros, Indochinese tiger and Asian elephant. A sighting of one of these threatened species is worth 1,000 safaris anywhere else in the natural world. Gibbons sometimes serenade at sunrise and barking deer yelp at the edge of the jungle. Siamese crocodiles, once thought extinct, have also been seen in the rivers that criss-cross this magical haven. The resident birdlife is estimated at a staggering 553-plus species, although in all probability many will be added after more comprehensive surveys. A veritable twitchers' paradise, waders from storks to cranes inhabit its wetlands, song birds love its wooded slopes and the brahminy kite hovers overhead on the lookout for a meal. Among the rarest of sightings are the silver oriole and the great hornbill, which are thought to be on the brink of extinction.
