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

We had lunch here as part of our Cambodian tour en-route to our hotel in Kep. The Vine is situated a far way up in the hills in a peaceful setting in the middle of a pepper plantation. Meals here are made with fresh produce from the gardens and were quite good, probably more good home cooking rather than restaurant... More

As you will see, many of the guests that stay overnight with us leave very good reviews based on our homely feel and willingness of our staff which we pride ourselves on. We advertise and recommend that all outside guests pre-book a pepper farm tour so that we can service you effectively when we have a full guesthouse and you... More

Lovely staff. Beautiful place. Very relaxing.. Great food. Lovely ethos there with the gardens employing locals and growing their own food. Gorgeous building. The architecture is a mix of French farmhouse and subtropical treehouse. The elevated dining room is very special, so simple but lovely.

We were basically invited by some colleagues to "tag along" on a 5 day trip that they had already planned. They'd done all the leg work and it was just left to us to make our own bookings. Making a booking with The Vine was, as I recall, super easy. If memory serves, I sent them an email, they responded... More

This must be the most restful place in Cambodia - unless you do the arduous if rewarding ridge trek as my husband did, instead of just lounging by the cool and lovely salt water pool like me. And nothing was nicer than sitting on the airy upper deck with a large glass of wine watching the sun go down over... More

I loved the Vine Retreat! It was the perfect relaxing getaway that I needed and the lodge itself has a lot of rustic charm; set in beautiful Cambodian countryside. Our room was simple but charming and clean. The staff were very kind and were happy to help with whatever needs we had. The food, which is primarily Khmai food, was... More
