help with Kampot accomodationWe arrive in P.P. on the 12th Jan for our second visit to see our sponsored childres at The Cambodian Childrens Fund. Will be there until the 15th when we would like to travel down to see Kampot after reading how nice and rural that area is. Would like some help with accomodation with a swimming pool, central location please. Have looked at a couple including Villa Verdasi but photos do not tell it as it is we have found out, there are some very good photographers.
Also any advise as to what are the best must sees around there, a river trip etc. We go back to P.P. on the 24th Jan for a few days before heading home. Is it worth a few days in Sinakouville as we both like the ocean?

1the only place with a usable pool in kampot,is villa verdici. the borey bokor built one recently,but it certainly doesnt look open to swimmers. villa verdici is really nice,although not in town. you can get a tuk tuk quite easily though. best value in town,is probably still mea culpa. excellent rooms for around 25 a night. if you want to swim,you can go up river to any of the riverside places,such as bodhi villa,ollys place,utopia,green house,or indeed villa verdici.

3nattaya is 18km out,on the road to sihanoukville. it is beautiful,but expensive,with terrible service.if you want to eat there,order about 2 hours before you are hungry. and make sure you are flexible,as the menu is usually about 20 percent available. you can use the pool for 5 bucks a day. its right on the sea,so well worth a visit,just for the setting. rooms are around a hundred a night i think.

4If you can cope without a swimming pool then Rikitikitavi is a top spot for some R & R, right on the river and very central Hire bikes or motos and head off into the villages, just gorgeous out near the fishing village.
We hired canoe's at Villa Vedichi and the pool is gorgeous, its a few k's out of town, so would need a ride in and out, will be a bit dusty at this time of year. the staff out there are very obliging.
As mentioned Nataya is about 30 minutes out of town it has one of those endless pools and is right ont he sea, we had a few drinks out there one day but were not impressed, might have improved lately.

Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
