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.

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
