We recently stayed in this gorgeous place and had an air con little bungalow. We were instantly welcomed and couldn't believe how beautiful the small place was. Our bungalow was like a home away from home, small but perfect. There was a hammock and a couch chair outside that we could relax on, but we couldn't stay away from the... More

We have been following other reviews and stayed in the wonderful place. I don't have any remarks accept maybe the prices at the bar. The don't feel Cambodian. Don't need to be, but when you are on a budget travel it adds up. Bungalows are super & cozy. Loved the bench outside. Take a cover at night (against mosquitos), lay... More

This is an immaculately kept tropical bungalow dwelling with a beautiful pool and separate bungalows that are surrounded by lovely plants. Phillipe is the french host and he does it very well - he gave us a very detailed warm welcome and let me use his computer to make Skype calls at no charge - The rooms don't have a... More

Botanical is beautiful, and would be the place for a romantic get away. The little bungalows are cute and have almost everything you need, the exception is a fridge, this is because of the ongoing electrical problems in Cambodia. However it does have a very comfy cane lounge and hammock on the veranda and the helpful staff will provide ice... More

Where do I start I literally cannot fault this place-from the hospitality of Phillipe and his gorgeous family, to the beautiful food (that is cheaper than Kep restaurants) to the delightful thatched roof bungalows. The pool is so inviting and the cocktails dreamy. The atmosphere here is what makes this place exactly where you want to be after a full... More

Loved the thatched roof bungalows, the lush foliage and flowers. The restaurant was excellent - try the crab with Kampot pepper sauce. Staff was attentive, and rooms were cleaned and linen changed daily. Our French host was gracious and helpful. His family includes two small boys who can be very entertaining. Best of all was the pool - sparkling clean... More

Perfect place to stay! Nice bungalow, swimming pool, bar, fan & net in the room, clean bathroom, nice owners (both). Owners helpful to book a bus back to sihanoukville especially during knew new year. The only pity is we which we could have stay longer in the guest house. Thx for all!

My boyfriend and I spent three nights, had a wonderful stay. Really good value for the area, beautiful bungalows and common areas. FYI - there were a lot of kids at the property all throughout the day, both guests and the owners' children; this wasn't a problem for us, but could be for some guests (you know who you are)....

Botanica only had one night available during our stay in kep, which was fine as we wanted to move a bit closer to the beach and market. It's pretty far from the main area, so if you stay here you will need to rent a motorbike or call a tuk tuk to get around. Botanica has very clean bungalows at... More
