Luxurious traditional design

RiverWind is an exclusive private residence on the Mekong River in Phnom Penh, offering absolute seclusion just minutes from the city. Enter another world, where time flows by as languidly as the waters of Asia’s most majestic river.

A Luxury Hideaway with Spectacular River and City Views

RiverWind is an idyllic rural hideaway located on the east bank of the Mekong River at Areyksat Village, five minutes from the Royal Palace. Relax from the moment you alight from the boat into the lush tropical garden, scented with frangipani and jasmine and surrounded by bougainvillea. Chill out by the private pool, where the only sound is the rustle of the river breeze in the palm trees. Unwind in a deckchair on the lawn and watch the river flow. Take in timeless sunsets over the urban skyline, or go on a sundown river cruise. RiverWind was designed and built by Dr Andrew Thomson, UN doctor, humanitarian worker and author.
