“What an amazing place”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed my four nights stay at Rikitikitavi. The rooms were charming and very comfortable, the staff are wonderful and the food is divine. What more can one ask for? The hotel arranged a scooter for me for two days and when I had a puncture in the middle of nowhere the hotel even organised the scooter provider to find me and fix the puncture without any additional charge. The happy and friendly staff is a consequence of their decent treatment by the owner. I believed that the staff are well look after, good salary, and have good working hours. When I was there the owner was away on a long holiday but the place still runs efficiently and effectively. This says a lot about the moral of the staff. I was really sad to leave this place after four nights. Definitely will be back for a longer stay,

I had the pleasure of spending 10 wonderful days at Rikitikitavi Guesthouse! The rooms are large, modern, spotlessly clean, and each has their own private porch area. Additionally Rikitikitavi Guesthouse has a restaurant/bar above the guesthouses that overlooks the river that serves the best food in town, with a mix of Khmer and Western style foods. Though as perfect as the rooms are, it was the wonderful & friendly staff that made this place a true paradise! They went above & beyond, & truly made me feel long-lost friend that just came home! This place and the people are AWESOME!

Very much enjoyed our few days at Rikitikitavi. Truly is a boutique hotel with excellent service. Kampot is a lovely town where we felt quite safe riding motorbikes as a family and walking about. Less touristy than Sihanoukville with far more charm. Rikitikitavi were happy to organize buses, motorbikes, whatever for us. Loved sitting on the verandah sipping a smoothie watching the sun set...beautiful!

Girls trip and was exactly what we needed. They can book your tuk tuk for day or hour. :-)

The food is seriously incredible. BEST local dishes!! Smiley friendly staff. Always up for a chat.

We shortened our stay to head to Phnom Penh but no reflection on hotel, just wanted to check out the city. This change was easily managed and not a problem.

Great spot, you will not be disappointed.

Gratitude

Tams :-)

I emailed Riki before our stay and got very fast and prompt responses. They arranged a firefly trip for us in no time.
When we got there we got a huge family room with perfect beds, perfect AC, everything super clean and nice. Everything perfect. The location is right on the river. Also Perfect.

We ate in the restaurant and got some of the very best food during our two week trip to Cambodia.

Especially the Chicken Amok, Samlang, Lok Lak were delicious.

We rented motorbikes and drove to Bokor mountain also from the hotel.

What ever we asked and wanted to do, the female manager there arranged in absolutely no time at the right price. I think her name was Lin. She was impressive and so was this hotel. I cant really put a finger on anything. Even the price was very good.

We should have stayed longer. Ohh, the Firefly trip at 25 USD for a boat was great. The trip to Bokor on motorbike quite an adventure in the rain and you feel like being part of "The Shining" or a David Lynch movie going up there.

We should have stayed longer in Kampot.

If you ever go to Kampot stay in Rikitikitavi

If you ever eat in Kampot, eat at Rikitikitavi.

If you ever want to start a hotel in Cambodia, hire Lin to manage it.

Fantastic.

Rikitikitavi is fantastic. Big clean, modern rooms, tasty breakfasts, friendly helpful staff and a reasonable price!

We stayed for 3 nights and ate at the great restaurant a LOT! 2 for 1 cocktails from 5-7 and tasty fresh food too.

Each room has a DVD player and a list of all DVDs available to watch. This is a great facility that we made good use of!

Stay here, you won't be disappointed!

We didn't actually stay at the hotel but did get a sneaky peak at one of the rooms which was stunning! (If we had the budget we would have booked ourselves in immediately!)
We did eat dinner here though and both enjoyed the traditional Khmer cuisine. It was definitely by far the best food we have eaten on our trip and meant we came back for more on our second night in Kampot!! The whole place is designed beautifully and looks very magical at night when you walk up to it. Thank you Rikitiki!!
