Located between Phnom Penh and the majesty of Siem Reap stunning Cambodian river cruises await on board ‘Sovanna’
Sovanna means “Golden Dream” in Khmer
Sovanna is a beautiful river houseboat with two cabins. Fully equipped and designed for four live-aboard guests on. Sovanna was constructed in Cambodia from a purpose-built fibreglass mould sized on the standard two-bedroom Kerala houseboats. The boat is approximately 26 meters in length and 4.5 meters wide. As a result, she is ideal for the Cambodian river cruises. Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia is Sovanna’s home port. Guests are taken on the Tonle Sap river and onwards to Siem Reap. Sovanna can also be used for overnight trips.
What a brilliant project this has been. So interesting learning more about Angkor Wat & Siem Reap. And, a lot more about the traditions and customs in Cambodia. Thoroughly rewarding; and always great to work on the website, print, and social media. Couldn’t ask for more really!
Sovanna has just 2 cabins. She is a very special private residence.
Tastefully decorated the cabins have private ensuite bathrooms with a shower. Special care has been taken in the concealment of light. And, the quality of the bedding. The soft soothing colours and the selection of fabrics provide guests with a comfortable and cozy setting. Perfect for a peaceful nights sleep.
Sovanna is a private cruise boat and a unique boutique hotel that has just two en-suite bedrooms. Relax in complete privacy. Ideal for couples, or for friends that enjoy some quality time together. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable. And, they are on-hand to assist guests with anything they need.
Angkor Wat & Siem Reap Cruise
Welcome aboard for a luxurious and relaxing stay on Sovanna. She is a stunning boutique hotel & houseboat that cruises the Tonle Sap River between Phnom Penh and Kampong Chhnang. And, returns to Phnom Penh after a visit to Angkor Wat and Siem Reap should guests desire.
At its zenith, the Khmer Empire or, more accurately, the Angkor Empire stretched from China to Myanmar.
Hindu architects designed the buildings found in Angkor Wat to mirror the sacred peaks of Mount Meru where all the gods resided.
The Silk Island Cruise
A stunning cruise along the Mekong from Phnom Penh to one of our favourite locations. The Khmer Silk Factory on Koh Dach is otherwise known as “Silk Island”. Situated just north of the confluence of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers, Koh Dach (Silk Island) is home to a mesmerising silk weaving village and factory. Cambodia’s silk weaving history stretches back farther than the beginning of the reign of the Angkor Kings. Silk Island wholly embodies a traditional way of life.
Beautiful rich silk and cotton fabrics in jewel colours are woven on manual wooden looms into stunning designs.
