4 Rivers Floating Lodge, Cambodia
Arriving at this remote eco-luxe lodge is half the adventure: A 4-hour drive from Phnom Penh, followed by 30-minute boat ride down the misty Tatai River, thick jungle on either side, that recalls the Heart of Darkness
journey in the best way possible. Once you spy the 12 handsome tented villas, inspired by African safari tentalows, you’ll realize that this is glamping—on water. Bathrooms hold wine-barrel showers and striped umbrellas shade chic chaise lounges, but you might be awoken at sunrise by gibbon call and the best massage around comes courtesy of a nearby waterfall.INSIDER TIP
For a look at local life, take the resort-offered excursion to a nearby fishing village where houses are on stilts and boardwalks stand in for sidewalks. Room rates from $220, including breakfast.
