Fodor's Expert Review Jasmine Valley
Kampot, Kampot, Cambodia
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
Below the National Park on a jungly mountain near the Vietnam border, Jasmine Valley is an ecologically responsible hotel, which runs completely on solar power that guests can regulate for their own rooms. Homegrown food is served at the restaurant, rooms are built from natural materials, bathing water runs at its natural temperature, and the owners work on various initiatives to support the local community. Rooms, all with wide openings for savoring lush jungle views and wildlife sounds, range from charming mudbrick bungalows to treehouses and two mountain lodges. If (you, or) your teenager is craving action, Jasmine Valley has built its own skateboarding bowl.
