Description: Knai Bang ChattNestled by the beach at Kep, on the Kampot coast of Cambodia, Knai Bang Chatt is set in two uniquely designed villas, dating from the early sixties, and a third new villa, built in 2012.

Perfect for relaxing visits to Kep and the region, Knai Bang Chatt offers an excellent range of on-site activities, including Hobie cat sailing, wind-surfing, fishing, kayaking, cycling, and much more. The resort organises private discovery tours of the region, visiting abandoned coastal villas, hillside temple, and Kep's famous crab shacks. Other nearby attractions include the Secret Lake and the caves of Phnom Chhnork.
Knai Bang Chatt is home to the up-market Strand Restaurant, which serves healthy, delicious cuisine created from the finest fresh and local products, including the abundant, freshly caught fish, crab, and seafood from Kep's day-boat fishing fleet. Guests can choose from set menus, à la carte dining, and the chef's table, either in the elegant, air-conditioned restaurant, or in the open-air pavilion. More informal beachfront dining is offered at the Sailing Club.
