Nature’s Spa – Tatai Waterfall by boat

One of the region’s must-sees, we visit Tatai Waterfall every second day as a regular tour. In addition, you can ask for a private trip for your party if you are four people or more (subject to boat and guide availability).

If the waterfalls are mighty and not easy to access in the rainy season, the lower water flow makes the falls very friendly and enjoyable to explore during the dry season (Dec to May).

Some degree of fitness is necessary to be able to fully enjoy this tour.

Away from the tranquility of Canvas & Orchids Retreat, the thunder of the majestic Tatai Falls reveals the river’s true power as it drops six meters to the rocks below.

Depending on the tide, you leave at 10 am for a 45-minute ride to the falls.

Turning into a tributary you head into the heart of the Cardamom rainforest accompanied by the far-off sounds of exotic birds and its secretive wildlife. Within minutes you are at journey’s end, gazing down into the turbulent waters of the waterfalls.

Soon it’s time for lunch. Maybe take a few moments for a natural hydro-massage and a refreshing drink as you find some shade for a picnic and open your senses to the sights and sounds of the jungle. We will also have some kayaks available for you to try out for some extra fun and adventure.

After leaving the falls, depending on the season, we might stop at the mouth of a small river where you can kayak to a traditional Cambodian farm where you will see rice fields and tropical fruit trees.
