“Best Place”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

This owner runned Bungalow Hotel was one of the most sympathetic and cutest place we stayed on our trip in Cambodia.
Very nice and clean Bungalow, the breakfast buffet was gorgeous and the staff is very courteouse.
The garden and pool aera is very lovely and on the little rooftop bar you can enjoy the sunset with a good glass of wine.
Very recommendable!!!

We stayed in a bungalow (double bed, hot shower, separate toilet, TV, A/C, hanging rack, window doors looking out at private palm lined veranda with table and chairs) for 3 nights and were very happy. The grounds have a pristine blue heated pool surrounded by palm trees. The owners are a couple from Singapore and France who spoke English, were very friendly and very helpful. At the time we stayed, they had owned the resort for about one year. They are transforming the resort to a lavish hide-away. (The photos with red umbrellas are the more recent ones). The renovations weren't disruptive; for example, changing the light fittings and installing bamboo screens. It was a very pleasant and serene place, which will only improve.

The attention to detail was impeccable. For example, each evening an aromatherapy oil burner was lit in our room. Our room was made SO QUICKLY when we went for breakfast (which was only 15 minutes) and the owner was always attentive, asking us each morning if anything required attention.

The included breakfast comprised of eggs/omelette and bacon (prepared when you arrive – your choice of cooking style), yoghurt, fruit, muesli, coffee, juices, bread, pancakes. It was fantastic. They have normal coffee available plus a selection of pod coffees via an automatic machine (for coffee snobs like us).

Rooms are large, extremely clean and very private. Garden and pool are great. It is a small boutique resort (there seem to be only about 10 max concrete bungalows).The rooms do not have a fridge or kettle (but I am sure they are not far from being provided) and there are no bathtubs (but we didn’t want one given that there was a heated pool).

It is in a great location about 500 meters from the crab market and 500 meters from the entrance to the National Park.

We stayed an extra night because we were impressed and we had visited 6 other places in Kep.

Myself and a friend have just got back from our stay at Raingsey, we had a lovely couple of days rest in a little oasis when we originally only booked one night!
Laurent and Joey were very welcoming and helpful, just ask and they will do everything they can to assist including making sure you have the best wine (much appreciated)!! Probably the best hosts we've experienced.
The vegetable curry was the best I've had since being in Cambodia for 3 months...... I really need that recipe ;0)
Bungalows were clean and I really liked the layout, comfy beds too.
Everything about this place has a relaxing feel to it and it's hard to get out of the pool once you're in!
All the staff were very friendly and they enjoy trying to improve their english whilst you can learn Khmer.
Thanks for a great stay....

Had a great stay here. Looked after like royalty. Laurent made our 4nights stay very special. Upgraded us up to a King room after a mix up with Double bed bungalow room. Made my Husbands Birthday very special with flowers in the room. and a lovely bottle of French wine.Breakfast was fantastic and I had the best Crab in pepper sauce at their resturant. The staff were all fantastic especially Chib. Pool and lush surrounding area was great and hotel is close to crab market,resturants and the national park. Really special place to stay. Thankyou and hope to return again.

We came to kep expecting to stay for 2 nights and ended up staying for 5!
Raingsey Bungalows is a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay. The garden is beautiful, very lush and gives the bungalows a private feel. The rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed the towel art!
We were well looked after by Laurent and his team. What we particularly enjoyed about our stay is how welcome we were made to feel, more part of the family than an anonymous hotel guest.
The bungalows are well situated, close to the crab market and also to the national park. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Stayed recently over four nights and had a fantastic stay. The biggest attraction is Joy and the staff (especially Chib) - couldn't do enough to make the stay wonderful and were always took the time to have a chat between making certain everyone had everything they needed (brilliant at improving my Khmer). The location is very close to Crab Market (a five minute walk) and the National Park is about five minutes in the other direction (great trail to the top where you can get great views). Our room was great (king sized bed - Room 9) - large room, great bathroom, plenty of space for clothes and cleaned perfectly every day. The pool and surrounds are terrific (bamboo will be around the entire pool soon), as are the plants and palms around the pool - fell completely secluded both at the pool area and the room. Very quite, good food and great views of sunset from the main dining area. Really is a must compared to many other places in Kep.
