- 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.

We stayed at the Vine Retreat in April 2014 for two nights. In terms of logistics, Vine was very helpful in setting up our taxi pickup from the Sihanoukville airport with no problems. They answered questions about what to do around town, giving tours of their pepper farm, etc. Everyone is extremely nice. The house is beautiful, the surroundings are... More

We totally loved this resort! Set on a pepper plantation which lay at the foot of small mountains and surrounded by jungle it was a quiet relaxing place away from the hubbub of everyday Cambodian life. The staff were lovely - attentive, friendly and helpful. The food made from local produce was really tasty and the Banana & Mango smoothies... More

Just experienced the Vine's raw food yoga retreat with Phnom Penh Yoga's Oskar Nery and raw food genius and The Vine manager Emma Fountain. It was simply perfect. Sublime yoga space on the top floor of the wooden farmhouse with great equipment, cool breezes and a view over lush farmlands that could be mistaken for Eden - pepper plantations, mango... More

Vine Retreat turned out to be a hidden gem and the most wonderful part of the trip. After a week in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, we came to Pepper Road in Kep. The retreat is a Cambodian house built for volunteers, and now is another project to bring jobs and business to this area, torn for so long by... More

Beautiful setting and unique idea that you guys have pulled off. Great views, food, and friendly staff. Peaceful tranquility away from any rat-race. Only down side was not staying long enough! I would suggest a minimum of three nights to relax and explore.

What a shame we discovered this great place at the end of our trip. We went there to see the pepper plantation and we discovered a lovely place with swimming pool and a beautiful bed & breakfast house where you can have a yummy organic lunch/dinner in this peaceful environment. You can also buy some pepper and relax on the... More

I didn't stay here but came specifically to have lunch, tour the organic garden and buy pepper - it was worth the trip. I loved the cool breeze from the veranda and the food was tasty. I would definitely consider staying here in the future, especially given the price.

We stayed here for 3 days and could of stayed longer. Emma and Jay are perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble. A very peaceful stay after the madness of Phnom Penh. We ventured into Kep which was $16 return trip for the famous crab and black pepper dish which was great. Sunset at the sailing club bar with... More
