"It’s hard to explain what makes a place feel special from the first time you encounter it and makes you want to go back every day to enjoy the wonderful environment but Michelle and Brian have clearly discovered the secret." Trip advisor 2019
Welcome to Bohemiaz resort & spa
Hello, My name is Michelle, and on behalf of myself and my dad I'd really like to welcome you to your first glimpse of Bohemiaz. I appreciate that there are many choices when looking for accommodation or restaurants in Kampot, so I hope you choose us! I decided to quit the English rat race back in 2013 and move to Cambodia to set up a hotel. On hearing the news, my not so traditional dad Brian, decided to move with me and hence the idea of Bohemiaz was born.
In 2013 we came over to have a look around Cambodia. Our first stop was Phnom Penh where we met the charismatic Meta. Meta suggested to me that we come and look at Kampot as a possible destination to open up our guest house, well....it was love at first sight! On getting off the bus something just clicked, it was a beautiful town full of lovely people, charming buildings and stunning scenery, and my dad and I both knew that this was where we wanted to make our new home and business.
Several months later we moved our lives and cats to Kampot. A few months after that we opened Bohemiaz. Meta ended up helping me set up Bohemiaz and is still a great friend to this day, we are literally living our dream. We really love Kampot and we hope you enjoy yourselves in this town as much as we do. Last year we finished building our new spa complex, complete with a Jacuzzi, herbal steam room, infrared sauna, gym, yoga platform, relaxation sun deck, private air-conditioned treatment rooms and games area with table tennis and darts. Our therapists have been trained at a top spa in Phnom Penh and together we have created a range of luxurious treatments for you to enjoy.
I'm a firm believer that any hotel or business is only as good as its staff, and I am so lucky in the fact that I have the most amazing team here at Bohemiaz. Firstly we have our bar manager Ry who is always there with a cheeky smile or sarcastic comment. Working alongside her is our newest family member Phea who has learnt so much so fast and is always happy to help where she can.
Our kitchen is headed up by the very talented Head chef Heng. Ly & Yan both work incredibly hard with Heng, these amazing girls make everything from scratch from the bread and wraps to cereals, sauces, marinades and even our home cured bacon. Our beautiful therapist and amazing all rounder Srey Nee gives the most fantastic massage and leaves you ready to take on the world (my favourite is the hot stones!). Yanee and Net keep the place spotlessly clean, and never stop, from picking up leaves to painting rooms and doing laundry! Gort & Kom are our maintenance men and they and our happy tuk tuk driver Matt keep the gardens looking lush and have the most creative ways to fix things that go wrong!
Last but not least our swimming pool is actually a natural pool, the water is clean and completely safe, and is coloured on purpose as part of our clever natural filtration design. If you would like to learn more about natural pools there is more information here for you to download.
