This famous Kampot restaurant célèbre ‘Auberge du Soleil’ and historic hotel building (circa 1903 and completely renovated in 2006) is now available for rent / sale.

The business is being sold for $99,000 (neg) which includes the refundable rental deposit by the long-term owners as they are pursuing a Sea Change. They, of course, wish to see the business continue to flourish well into the future.

The sale of the business may, depending on the new owners’ wishes, come with the entire compliment of 7 staff (including head chef) and the owners are willing to remain available for a protracted handover of the business if needed.

Historic Kampot hotel details:

The building is available under a protected Business Lease at a reasonable $550/month (up to January 2021), then $625/month (up to January 2024). The building owner is obligated by law to renew the lease after this at ‘market price’, so there will be no surprises.

The business includes a very successful restaurant open 6 ½ days/week and four characterful guest rooms. These regularly attract clientele via Agoda, Google, AirBnB, freetobook and booking.com. Typically high season is October to April, although every month is profitable due to an established ex-pat clientele.

The building has been regularly maintained and was last painted in June 2019. The roof is completely weatherproof, furniture and kitchen hardware are in good condition and all bedding is new.

The new international port and marina planned for Kampot will no doubt offer new opportunities. This business offers some great opportunities to an insightful and enthusiastic owner post Covid.

You are invited to view the property by appointment.

Tourism Infrastructure

According to the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project (Oct 2014), the aggregate increase in tourism to the region – specifically targeting Kampot, Kep and Koh Kong – is expected to increase almost five-fold by 2025.

Further, the strategic thrusts of the Government’s Tourism Development Strategic Plan (TDSP) are to enhance (i) connectivity and travel facilitation; (ii) tourism product development; (iii) tourist safety and negative impact management; (iv) marketing and promotion; (v) legal and regulatory mechanisms to improve the business enabling environment; and (v) tourism-related HR development.
