A driving force behind the clean lines and minimalist style of Knai Bang Chatt is adopted from the ancient Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi, which places importance on rustic simplicity, understated elegance, and the inherent beauty of imperfection.

Appreciation for the elements and the ingenuous integrity of natural objects can be found in our polished teak wood beds, natural earthy tones, and imperfect ceramic lamps and vases. Throughout the property, trees, pebbled pathways, and natural bamboo screens define the open space and time-weathered wood is transformed into seating and dining areas that blend seamlessly into the relaxed and beautiful surroundings.

When Knai Bang Chatt was first established as a private home, it was important to the original owners – Jef Moons and Boris Vervoordt – to include cultural artifacts and historical works of art throughout the property.

After the full renovation in 2012, more artifacts and local art pieces were sourced and incorporated into the rooms, providing a sense of history and appreciation for authenticity and Khmer relics.
