When the heat gets too much in Phnom Penh, expats and Penhites alike head to either Sihanoukville or Kep. We haven’t been to Sihanoukville (we’re planning to go there next month, though) but we’ve been to Kep.
Kep is a resort town of Cambodia about 2-3 hours drive from the city of Phnom Penh. Kep is not to be mistaken as a beach town. Yes, it is a seaside town but it’s not for swimming, it’s more like a picnic place where people enjoy cheap seafood, and breezy, quiet atmosphere.
I booked our accommodation through Agoda after comparing rates at HotelsCombined. I chose Knai Bang Chatt Resort . I was happy with my choice. Sure, it was a bit expensive ($180++/night), but we got the privacy and the quiet we wanted.
It was a very relaxing 3-day holiday.
If I am not mistaken, there’s only about 5 of these buildings and each has two rooms, one up and one down. We stayed at the ground floor.
Our room, it doesn’t look that pretty on the picture, but it was. I also loved their bathroom.
The swimming pool, small but with a great view of the ocean.
Love this shot. This was the view from their restaurant.
The hotel’s restaurant.
For lounging, which we did the whole time we stayed there.
There’s a water sports just right beside Knai Bang Chatt. You can rent something like this.
I’d love to go there again this year. Let’s see if we have got a budget left for this. LOL!
