Kampot’s Most Happening Backpackers
Arcadia Backpackers is nestled in the jungle with 150m of absolute riverfront, approximately 7km’s upstream from Kampot, in the village of Teuk Chhu. We are blessed, with stunning river and mountain views from sunrise to sunset and a monthly full moon rising above the palm trees. The village of Teuk Chhou, is quiet, with no major shops or bank machines, however, there is always someone nearby that will sell fuel, snacks and cold drinks. So please keep in mind that because of our rural location, water and power can be a problem from time to time. However, that wont stop you from having a marvellous time during your stay.
The rooms on offer consist of both traditional grass roof rooms/bungalows as well as more hotel styled sealed concrete rooms. All our rooms vary in price and luxury, and all are equipped with fans only. Those needing the luxuries of air-conditioning and/or hot water are best off staying elsewhere.
Here at Arcadia, we try to offer a more homely and social environment for our guests. We target active people and provide kayaks and bicycles for rent, with many free toys in the river to play with all day (See Facilities). There is a sunset boat cruise offered everyday, guided hikes, kayaking and tubing down the rapids (May-December). There is also a huge pontoon for people wanting to sun-bathe and plenty of hammocks around the grounds that offer a place to soak in the view, relax or read a book. We do note that this is not the best place for a romantic getaway or for those wanting absolute peace and quiet.
The bar at Arcadia can be quite lively at times, with pub quizzes, ping pong/pool/darts tournaments and projector movie nights. The bar closes at 1am every night, except when we have special events, it may close at a later time. The kitchen is open from 7am-8.30pm, with all the food sourced from fresh local ingredients. We only accept cash here at Arcadia, so please bring money with you, as there are no ATM’s nearby.
