We arrived in a rainstorm complete with thunder and lightening. The staff somehow managed to transport us and our luggage to the lodge and keep us dry. We settled into our large comfortable cabin complete with sitting area and verandah with chairs and hammock then back along the walkways for tea,fruit and cake. We spent 3 nights here and one day walked to the waterfall with Pirom and Nico and swam and climbed and sat under the smaller cascades. We were picked up by boat in time for lunch at Rainbow Lodge. The afternoon was spent in a double kayak from RL. Next day was amazing spent with Gee the naturalist exploring the mangrove
Forest by kayak and walks. Gee seems to know everything from the root systems to identifying the insects ,birds, butterflies and plants / fascinating. The food was superb. Elliott impressive with the personal attention he gives. We were also lucky to be staying at the same time as Janet the founder so heard the narrative of the struggles to make this all happen. Finally there is all the work in the local community supported and done by Rainbow Lodge

We booked four nights here and it was great after we arrived. The minibus on the way was harrowing as they all are in Cambodia. And the river boat to the lodge was loud! Bring earplugs. But it was really cool. They have bouncy bamboo platforms to walk above the vegetation that lead to a large reception area that also serves as dining and lobby space. More walkways lead off to bungalows with comfy beds, couches and mosquito netting for nights. There are fans and showers in each and lots of windows. We had a couple of laughing thrushes stop by each afternoon on the branches near our bungalow and we saw great hornbills in the fruiting tree above the reception area.

We took a walk with Gee, the naturalist, who showed us all sorts of interesting flowers and bugs, butterflies and birds. Our favorite were the Chestnut headed bee-eaters. And we saw some water buffalo up really close--we were in their pasture.

We went to the waterfalls and kayaked the mangroves. The food was delicious and they accommodated my diet, even making me a special dessert my last night so I could enjoy dessert too. Thanks so much , Elliott!!

We all enjoyed our time here. You can be active or laid back and they are as eco-friendly as possible and Elliott tries his hardest to make everyone's stay amazing. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Each bungalow has a couch for sitting and an inside bathroom and a little balcony with a hammock.

Rainbow lodge was definitely the highlight of our two week trip.
The setting at rainbow lodge is beautiful - you're surrounded by trees and the buzzing of insects. You feel and are completely surrounded by nature.
The lodges are great - simple but comfortable, perfectly decorated, clean and stylish. We had the family suite which had a double and then twin beds segregated from each other, a lounge sofa and terrace with chairs and a hammock so plenty of space to relax.
There are lots of walking activities however with a young child we couldn't do these - which we did appreciate before booking. We spent lots of time just sitting on the terrace or wandering the grounds enjoying the environment around us instead; birds, butterflies, fire flies and geckos. Our daughter loves this kind of outdoors so it was great for us but probably not for all younger children.
Having said that Elliot and his team were very accommodating and we went on two lovely boat trips.
The food was amazing with a tasty selection of dishes provided at each meal and the staff were all extremely friendly and welcoming.
The work being done at the lodge to preserve and support the local environment is also brilliant.
Thanks to everyone at rainbow lodge who make this a beautiful place and made our stay so enjoyable.

My boyfriend and I went on a trip through Cambodia this January. Our stay at Rainbow Lodge was the highlight of a perfect holiday.

The location is breathtaking, the staff is friendly and serviceminded, the food is lovely, the activities are exciting, and the general atmosphere is relaxed and "cozy"

Also; the masseuse, Fern is absolutely amazing. It was the best massage I have ever had!

Go there - It's fantastic!

Rainbow Lodge is a great place to kick back and partake in well organized activities run by Elliot and his excellent staff. They are right on the river with their own dock, so you can swim or kayak without any effort. In addition, they run excellent treks/activities to waterfalls, the mangrove protected areas, and hiking in the Cardamom mountains. Food is excellent and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Eco lodge so no AC, hot water, etc, but these amenities hardly missed. Elliot runs a smooth operation. Highly recommend.
