We stayed here for 3 nights with my parents and our young daughter. The Vine Retreat was one of the best hotels we've stayed at in Asia! The highlights were... The rustic feel of the hotel, the AMAZING staff (thanks Kenny and team!), the super nice salt water pool that always kept us cool, the delicious fresh and healthy food... More

We absolutely loved our stay here during our 2 week trip to Cambodia. It is the most relaxing and beautiful place. Our window opened onto a lovely blossom filled garden inhabited by a white horse (it wouldn't have been hard to believe it was a unicorn in that setting!). The staff and owners were so nice, food was great and... More

If you're looking for a beach resort this one is probably not for you, as it is 4km up a dirt road in the middle of pepper farm country. But that is its advantage! Get away from anything that reminds you of the tourism in the area. Spend a couple of days sitting by the pool or on the balcony... More

Lovely location in the middle of nowhere - 2 to 3 hours from Phnom Penh by van, tuk tuk to Kep is about 45 mins and about an hour to Kampot. It is a pepper farm and surrounded by other pepper farms, village, schools, jungle and reservoirs. A peaceful place, apart from the sounds of nature, to stay with a... More

The Vine Retreat is a beautiful place hidden away in the jungles and Kampot pepper plantations in the Vine mountains of the Kep region. Most people head to the beaches of Kep, we however loved the Eco, sustainable ethos that the Vine offered and booked there as a pit stop between the sights of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. The... More

- Ideal for lunch - Restaurant on the first floor with a beautiful view - Yummie dishes made with veggies they grow themselves - Not far from Sothy's pepperfarm (good combination to visit together) - Out of town but easy to find by motorbike

Really amazing food. We had lunch here nine times as part of our two week service program in and around Kep and every meal was wonderful. The service was great and the fruit drinks are fresh and imaginative. I would love to stay here at the retreat, too, some time in the future.
