First of all, the pictures do NOT lie...this place is beautiful and you will feel like you have walked into the pages of Architectural Digest when you enter this wonderfully designed house and grounds. The shine comes off the place a bit when the the water does not work (as happened on occasion) and the electric cords are running everywhere... More

Stayed here for only a few days but can't fault the place. Location was spectacular, the food superb and the infinity pool a treat. Stefan is the perfect host and incredibly knowledgeable about all things Cambodian and beyond, from insects that are good to eat to the best in Khmer cinematography. All the staff there were friendly and accommodating.

We technically did not stay here, but came down for the weekend with a group of friends who had rented it out (and stayed at the Kimly Lodge nearby ourselves). We spent almost the entire time at Romonea, and loved it. The house is beautiful, the pool is great, and the service was fantastic. We spent most of the day... More

We only stayed here for a couple of nights, but we could have easily stayed for longer. The large villa is set in it's own large grounds, looking down onto the sea. The staff there are so friendly and helpful meaning you can do as little or as much as you want. If you want to just relax in the... More

Lovely '60's modernist villa in a peaceful location on the coast just north of Kep. Beautifully decorated and finished, lovely setting overlooking the (rocky) shore, nice pool, very heplful staff. One or two rough edges - the lights in our room didn't work. Hard to find as there's no sign out by the road. We spent 2 nights there: ate... More

We spent two nights at the Villa Romonea with our toddler and really liked the tranquil setting, especially the gorgeous saltwater infinity pool overlooking rice paddies and the ocean - great for watching sunsets. The rooms were pretty basic with basic amenities like bug repellent and a large, family size bottle of shampoo and body wash but nothing more like... More

I love this place..it is always the first place i think of when thinking about Kep. This is the third or fourth time I have stayed here now. Definitely recommend taking the entire villa with family / friends. Stephane and Ms Chanti are the most beautiful hosts and all the Khmer staff are excellent. Did I mention this is my... More

We spent a week here, renting the whole villa (3 families - 6 adults, 7 children) just before Easter. Greeted by Stephane on arrival who was incredibly helpful throughout the whole week - organising tennis lessons, trips to Kampong, markets, taking us snorkelling, fantastic playlists. Extremely knowledgeable about the local area, history of the country - took us on a... More

Villa Romonea is divine - an oasis in Kep. From the moment you arrive everything is special. The staff are excellent - very personable, everything is seamless. A tennis court, fabulous infinity pool, masseurs who come to the villas…and the food and beverage! You choose your menu each day - all fresh from the markets: amok, huge crabs, fresh bok... More

We stayed in the Villa for 5 nights and could not want for a richer, more fulfilling experience. This is the second time we have stayed here, and will definitely be back. The villa itself is rich in history and is a spectacular example of french architecture that has been beautifully restored. Go for the larger rooms on the upper... More
