Hotels: Vanna Hill Resort in Kep

Have I mentioned I love Kep, Cambodia? If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile now, I’m sure you’re familiar with my Kep love. It’s my favorite place here in Cambodia and whenever we have free or long weekends, we usually head over there. I think its the seafood fiesta that gets me or perhaps the precious peace and quiet we can savor there.

One of the things we best like there is the presence of small boutique resorts. Most of them with tranquil gardens and small swimming pools that is just haven for us, especially those with kids in tow. We’ve tried quite a few places already and one of them is Vanna Hill Resort.

We’ve been to this place a couple of times, and while the bungalows are just average for me, what makes this place standout is – their pool! It’s gorgeous and the kiddo loves it. Whenever we ask her where we’ll book, its always here, mainly coz of the pool draw. The views are also fantastic, especially during sunrise. The hammocks placed on bungalow balconies are also a great plus.

Rooms/Bungalows range from $30 – $80 including a small buffet breakfast. We usually book via Agoda and there are times we get discount rates.

Staff and service is fine, perhaps a bit indifferent at certain times. My sister commented once that the staff seemed to prefer to be more service friendly to Western guests. Hmm, I wouldn’t know about that, but I sure hope they won’t be selective as we are all guests.  They also have a restaurant, but we haven’t really tried it as we prefer to eat at the Crab Market.

Overall, a nice boutique resort and a hit with kids who loves to swim.

      Thank you Yanie. Living here can be daunting at first, and yeah you’d get your regular dose of home sickness but keep in mind this is a different country so expect less of what you are used to and discover new things, then it starts to be fun. Hope you have a great time here.
