Absolutely lovely resort if all you want to do is chill, which we did for 3 days. Gorgeous large pool with plenty of sun beds, beautiful rooms, fantastic cheerful service from the restaurant - we ate there all the time. We did a cookery course which was really good fun. They

Having spent around 10 days doing the traditional tourist trail in Laos and Cambodia, we came to Samanea Beach for the last 4 days of holiday, just to relax. It was perfect. It has the best swimming pool, with enough seats and loungers for everyone. When you want a break you can

Lovely place, everyone tries to do his best for us. Kindly staff not always professional. Must increase the quality of food. Very nice bungalow, beautiful garden, big swimming pool. Friendly young German manager also.

A peaceful location in Kep with lovely staff who couldn’t be more helpful. The accommodation in standalone bungalows is spacious and comfortable with an outside bath tub and shower in a private courtyard. Very quiet with a private small beach to watch the amazing sunset. We ate

Not within really close walking distance but it's not a problem because you can always get a tuk tuk.

Unfortunately Samanea beach resort isn't convenient for airport connection, the closest airport is at Sihanoukville, the largest beach resort in Cambodia. An hour plus taxi/bus ride north. 77mile... Some would say the inaccessibility adds to its charm, proving to be the key factor that has allowed such places to retain their unique status, that the extra effort is worth the trip, I'm one of those people... In fact most the the best places in Cambodia have no airport connection, Battambang, Mondulkiri to mention two...

Hi, what are the different ways to get in to town? Is there transport available?
Hello,just ask at reception and they will order you a tuk tuk for whenever you want one. You can carry on using the same driver if you want, they are very reliable and always turn up where you want them on time. Coming back either ask the same driver to pick you up from wherever at whatever time,or just pick one up in town, they are not in short supply! If you are going further afield a taxi is a better +safer option. Enjoy!

"Arranged as 10 discrete villas, so you’ll feel secluded at any of them I should think."
"Make sure it is bug free before accepting your room if bug free is important to you."
"I think the web site would benefit from a plan of the site and fuller description of the different bungalows."
"All villas seemed well placed and luxurious"
"The double deluxe villa was lovely."
$126 - $262 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
