Topaz & Coastal escapade: a luxurious cocktail of refined local flavours in Kampot

For an exceptional and unique dinner, the Topaz team lead by Sopheak Pov has planned an extraordinary gastronomic getaway at one of the most luxurious hotels in Cambodia’s beautiful coastal region: Amber Kampot. Ambition : Savor the summer in Kampot  Exceptional On the evening of 20 July at 6pm, the Topaz team will take over the restaurant’s kitchens to prepare a special feast that promises to (re)discover the best of the region’s produce. These include fresh seafood, the world famous pepper, honey, the equally famous durian and exceptional vegetables.  The famed Amber Kampot If Topaz’s reputation extends beyond the capital, so too does the establishment that will host its teams on that famous evening of 20 July 2024.The region’s first 5-star luxury resort, Amber Kampot is ideally located on over 1.5 hectares of beautifully landscaped riverside grounds, with breathtaking views of the Elephant Mountains and the friendly town of Kampot in the background.   Charm and class Set on the water’s edge, but within easy reach of the provincial capital, the resort combines Cambodian charm with world-class facilities and service for a unique luxury experience. Determined to establish Kampot as a world-class destination, the Managing Director of Amber International Holdings commissioned Bloom Architects to design the hotel.   Wishing to imbue visitors with the atmospheres of rivers, mountains, rice paddies, mangroves, the Asian way of life and a sense of charm related to the city’s colonial past, the architects conceived Amber Kampot with a design that blends abundant nature, waterways, small islands, solid constructions and dark wood, mixing neutral colours with many different textures and minimal but highly original decoration.  To fit in with such a rich natural environment, a building and an elegant swimming pool overlook the river, all set on a hard platform covered in sandstone and decking and fitted with wooden shutters to filter the intense sunlight and provide a totally unique and soothing feeling from the moment you arrive at the hotel.  Design and decoration  The interior spaces of the main building are uncluttered and the decoration is minimal, so as not to detract from the marvellous landscape offered by the surrounding nature. According to the designers, “the architecture of Amber Kampot is intended to be specific, generous and respectful of the environment”. They also wanted to highlight the craftsmanship and unique characteristics of Kampot, the beautiful capital of Cambodia’s southern coast.  For the decor, local photographer and artist Nathalie Lee designed and created a space that is almost artistic, but discreet and perfectly in tune with the spirit of the place. With almost 1,500 square metres of white sandy beach awaiting guests after disembarking at the resort, Amber Kampot confirms its ambition to offer a luxurious, authentic and original experience. The beach is private, cleaned three times a day and it’s quite pleasant to feel isolated on such an exotic beach, just a few hundred metres from the city.  Perfect alliance  Make your reservation: +855 (0)15 821 888 and join us for an unforgettable coastal culinary dinner at Amber Kampot, hosted by Chef Sopheak Pov of Topaz Restaurant, and indulge in a luxurious six-course gourmet menu featuring the finest local ingredients from Kampot.
