The main building of the Karavansara Retreat is a Cambodian Heritage Colonial Villa. The Hotel has taken this piece of history and renovated it so that each guest can spend a night with all the comforts they expect. In addition, the whole retreat is set in lush garden enclosures and features a traditional wooden Khmer house which has been transported from deep in the Cambodian jungle to be the communal focus of the retreat. The Karavansara Retreat and Residences is unparalleled — a world cultural heritage site, a beautiful natural environment, award-winning architectural design, exceptional service and a small number of rooms to ensure exclusivity and privacy. The ethos of Karavansara is founded in the sophisticated luxury that is afforded by attention to the smallest details to ensure guests have a lasting experience.
