Canvas & Orchids is located in the densely forested south-western corner of Cambodia, overlooked by the Cardamom Mountains. The tented villas, replete with all mod-cons and large sun-lounger terraces, are situated right on the Tatai River on floating pontoons, overlooking the dense mangrove forest. Modelled on African game park safari tents, the villas have been designed in harmony with their surroundings, minimising the environmental impact on the local area. As well as a first-class restaurant serving up Cambodian specialties and Western dishes, there are a number of activities on offer. These include exploring the mangrove waterways by kayak with an experienced local guide, fishing, learning about the traditional customs and natural cures of the native forest people, excursions to nearby waterfalls and visiting local markets. According to several prominent wildlife organizations, this unique forest ecosystem is said to be home to over one hundred varieties of mammals including the rare Javan rhino, Asian elephant and Indochinese tiger, as well as hundreds of bird and plant species.
