Just met with Valentin Pawlik, the man behind the new 4 Rivers Floating Eco-Lodge that he's building in the lee of the Cardamom Mountains, on the Tatai River, 20kms from Koh Kong city, on the southwest coast of Cambodia. Its a unique and futuristic accommodation development for Cambodia and should be open in November. 18 luxury safari-tented villas will be on floating platforms alongwith a floating swimming pool and restaurant, on the bend of the river, three kilometres from Tatai village. Away from it all and surrounded by nature will be the theme. It's also just fifty kms from Chi Phat and the Wildlife Alliance eco-tourism project there so worth considering combining a trip to the natural attractions at Chi Phat with a stopover at 4 Rivers once it's up and running. Construction is underway, the platforms will be pieced together soon and the tents are due to arrive next month. The local populace at Tatai village will be building and manning the resort.
