Café

Black Pepper’s café is central to our guests’ experience. This is where people can ask questions, store belongings, check out paddles to canoe, grab a yoga mat or meditation cushion, order something to eat or drink, and escape the sun. It is the most likely place to make a new friend, as guests can pull up a stool around one of our large tree trunk tables, sipping an ice cold fruit smoothie. Unless the entire property is rented for a special event, the café is always available for public use.

Size: 7.1m x 9.4m
Capacity: up to 42 guests (22 seated; 20 standing)
Includes: thatch covered bar, one tin covered outdoor seating area, two large tree trunk tables (five seats each), one small tree trunk table (two seats), grill, ceiling fans, natural Black Pepper shade structure, cooler, storage, beverages for sale

WATER HUTS

These water huts are thatch covered structures that Black Pepper has built over its canals. With two hammocks, two chairs, and a small table in each, these are great little areas to tuck away in the shade and find some privacy for the duration of a day. Whether you want to take a nap or have a space for a small gathering of friends or family, our water huts are available for daily rentals, or used on a first come, first served basis. Water huts are also nice spots to do some fishing.

Daily Rental Fee: $10 ($5 for expats and locals)
Includes: private thatch covered hut over the water, two hammocks, two chairs, small table, floor mat, storage

Pavilions

There are two pavilions Black Pepper has built to accommodate small gatherings of up to twelve guests. These pavilions are great if you’re looking for a space larger than what our water huts can accommodate, or if you’re someone looking for a venue to host a yoga/meditation retreat. The pathway that leads to the pavilions adjoins our café, so there is ease of access if your group finds itself in need of refreshments. If not rented, the pavilions are first come, first served.

Dock

Black Pepper’s bamboo dock is the primary access point to the canals that run throughout the property. Here, guests can find up to six canoes that they can paddle around the property with, which are available on a first come, first served basis. The dock itself is shaded by coconut trees, so it’s a great place for guests that simply want to relax looking out over the water. Guests can also fish from the dock; just grab a pole from the café and drop a line.

RESTROOMS

Black Pepper has western style restrooms available on site for guests to use. Within the wash chambers that also adjoin the showers, there are two male and two female restrooms. There are four restrooms in total, with running water that comes from our main well. Guests may also appreciate the aesthetic of our infinity mirrors.

Showers

There is one shower in each of the men’s and women’s wash chambers. Black Pepper provides all natural toiletries to freshen up with, and the water from the shower comes from the main well on our property. Towels are also provided – free of charge.

Ponds & Canals

Nothing says Cambodia quite like the countryside, and the entire Black Pepper property is nested in the midst of sprawling rice farms. The water that supplies these farms is the same water that runs throughout the property. We clean the water regularly by skimming any signs of algae and salting to mitigate growth. During their visit, guests are welcome to canoe, fish, or swim.

Hiking Trails

There are stone paved pathways, as well as dirt trails, that our guests are able to use and hike around the property. In total, the property is about four hectares, and most of the paths are lined with coconut trees. We invite our guests to pick coconuts, where they can bring them back to the café to drink. There’s plenty of space to get lost for a while, and you may even see a white goose or two. If it’s sunny, you can usually count on seeing lots of butterflies.
