Amber Kampot Resort, Cambodia

Amber Kampot is a resort project undertaken by Bloom in early 2018. In the context of an Asian mangrove at the foot of the magnificent Bokor Mountains, Bloom investigates a Kampot specific luxury retreat that would delve into the Cambodian culture. Curated for the modern traveler, contemporary villas are inserted organically like local fisherman villages as the resort paths meander.

Between river and mountain, between rice fields and mangrove, between the colonial town of Kampot and its salt farms, Amber Kampot is a resort designed to showcase the locale. The design mixes warm dark wood and neutral colors with plenty of accented textures to reflect the area’s natural beauty. To answer such a rich environment, an exuberant facility building and pool overlooks the river, with an access from the river.

This horizontal platform made of concrete, sandstone and wooden shutter to filter the sun, acts as a beacon and provides a unique sense of arrival to the hotel. Timeless and monumental, a series of villas covered in Cambodia grey sandstone are inserted within the lush vegetation of Nippa palms.

The villas are designed to propose a disconnection from the daily routine to a more serene and lush environment. They are self-centered around an inner garden with curated local species and a private swimming pool.

The team of local designer and constructor collaborated in order to highlight the crafts and the unique feature of Kampot, the sleeping beauty of the south coast of Cambodia.
