I've spent a small week in Knai Bang Chatt and it was a wonderful experience! The weather wasn't ideal, but even in the rain it is a paradise. I would recommend taking a cooking session (the spicy squid salad is a really delicious!), walking around the national park and most of all enjoy many relaxing spa sessions. I will be... More

Should have been the dream short stop after touring Cambodia. But Kep was just too quiet in May and too remote. The hotel is stunning, but let down by its welcome (or rather lack of it). The restaurants (both the strand and the sailing club) are well set up, but the food mediocre both in adventure and execution. Should I... More

Location 2.5 hours drive from Phnom Penh; 1.5 from Sihanoukville airport About 10 minutes walk from the centre of Kep & the crab market. Town beach, which is the nearest real beach is around 30 minutes walk, or a short tuk-tuk ride away. Be aware that Kep sprawls for miles along a main road making exploration on foot difficult. Architecture... More

we've travelled to Kep at last minute during the national holidays, therefore we had not enough time for research and proper planning of this beach escape trip, but luckily we've found "The Sailing Club" and "Knai Bang Chatt" resort and restaurant, a fabulous place for dining and hanging out, great service and delicious food

I was very excited to spend a few days in Kep. I heard stories about its history and hoped for a nice, picturesque sea town. I couldn't have been more wrong. Kep is an incredibly dirty place with an interesting crab market (lots of restaurants attached) and not much else. Luckily the Knai Bang Chatt resort is the total opposite.... More

An outstanding resort hotel on the water in Kep. We ate freshly caught crab noon and night. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are lovely. It was a great place to wind down after some heavy traveling. I'd go back in minute.

This is one of those reviews that could have gone either way. On one hand you have a very beautiful resort full of historic charm, a well laid out and well maintained garden, a nice restaurant... and all this right on the water front. On the other hand though, no tea/coffee (in room), no TV and internet access was hit... More

Tasteful, very individual resort in beautiful tropical surrounding. However, in some details a bit run down - simplicity cannot be put on one level with neglect. Unruly children can be a nuisance: A place charging 200US$ and more a night should not exude youth hostel atmosphere with screaming kids, chasing each other through the resort and dominating the (otherwise very...

The terrace architecture is unique. Heard it was a Cambodian architect who also design the Independence Monument. Room has no TV so it's a perfect resting place. The restaurant "Strand" is facing the sea and it's beautiful in the evening with candles light up. The grounds are organized and laid out. The only set-back is the hot shower. Before I... More

My wife an I just stayed one week at Knai Bang Chatt. Very beautiful and well orginized small resort. Nice pool area, 50 meters from ocean. (Perfect view for sunset) Good rooms with daily cleaning and "preparing" for the night. Brilliant breakfast in restaurant "Strand". Our warmest recommendations for Knai Bang Chatt.
