Looks nice, wonder what they charge/ night and if it includes meals?
Bets its in the $100/night range.
I had 2 of those kayaks in phuket, great for riding the waves and paddling around

Funny, tI've been visiting a eco-friendly fishing/mangrove planting community for years. with the same name, in the same location but totally different to all but the middle photos.

Either this is a brand new place (with same name) or those photos are from somewhere else. The water looks far too blue to be Kampot too, I'm calling fake news.....

A simple bungalow (nothing like those in the picture) was around $12 earlier this year.

A nice place to relax.

How much are they now in Thailand? I remember considering buying one with all the kit, some years ago from the big mall in Pattaya. Then they were around 15,000baht.
