It’s all lush: pools, and harmony at Nataya Resort

Located in a hidden coral bay and surrounded by tropical gardens lies Nataya Resort. With the mountains in the back, one can experience how the large swimming pool almost seems to melt into the sea when the tide is high because the basin is embedded in the jetty.

The 5-hectare compound of Nataya Round House Coral Bay Resort & Spa is about 16 kilometeres southwest of Kampot, in the fertile southeast of Cambodia.

Its emerald gardens are right between Bokor Mountain and the coast. Because Nataya Resort is embedded in nature that still feels intact, it radiates a harmonious atmosphere, promising a pampering stay that will provide a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable lifetime experience.

Cambodian and international guests alike, value the resort for the many offers it holds. Whether they come for a regular holiday, a party with friends, a pre-wedding celebration, a wedding reception, or a romantic honeymoon – all guests get their money’s worth even though room rates range from $150 to $250 per night.

Revenues are constantly reinvested for the benefit of the guests. Mediene Natchear, owner of Nataya Roundhouse Coral Bay Resort & Spa, told The Post about the latest updates: “Currently we are building two other large swimming pools and plan to finish in early 2015.”

The so-called infinity pool that already exists covers an area of 26 by 12 metres, sitting on the edge of the beach, offering a beautiful view over the coral bay of scenic local fishing boats bobbing about in the distance.

If the pool isn’t enough of a draw, one of the new pools will be filled with sea water while the other is planned as a swimming pond. This kind of pond doesn’t require chlorine to keep the water clean. Instead, water lilies and lotus flowers constantly filter the fresh water in a natural way, paying respect to the natural beauty of the environment.

“While we finish our project of the pools, a spa and other service updates, Nataya will rank as one of the best unique resorts in Cambodia,” owner Mediene said. “Since the opening until now, our resort’s architecture, uniquely stylish roundhouse and beautiful gardens have found recognition in the region of the ASEAN mainland.”

There are only 23 rooms at Nataya resort, most of them based on the beachfront. The resort also offers two-room Superior Bungalows, as well as Deluxe Bungalows. In order to accommodate families and groups of friends, these rooms have
interconnecting doors.

All rooms have views of the sea and tropical garden, with some rooms enjoying views of both the sea and the infinity pool. The Pavilion Suites have a separate lounge area.

The resort’s Reef Restaurant is reputed for its variety of cuisine. The experienced chefs are able to cook authentic Khmer, Western and Indian food. Dining is possible in the air-conditioned restaurant, on the terrace, the lawn, inside the beach kiosk or on the beach itself.

The Oyster Bar on the rooftop of the main building is the perfect place to relax over a quiet drink away from the Reef Restaurant and enjoy the panoramic view of the area, spanning from the Bokor Mountain to the Gulf of Thailand, while watching the sunset in the distance.
