Sunset Valley Resort
Ranked #13 of 18 Hotels in Kep
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had a very nice stay at this small hotel in Kep. The place was beautiful, although far away from the beach, the garden was stunning, the pool area was very nice, the bungalows were comfortable and stylish, although very rustic, the staff was kind, with special remarks for the manager that was tireless and was attentive to every guest needs. Nevertheless, the place is still not amazing, as some details need to be taken care of, specially considering the price, not cheap for Cambodian standards. For instance, almost all the towels had stains, although they were clean, the pool chaises had holes and were definitely looking old, the breakfast is good, but still not in the same level as other's we had in Cambodia - for the same price, and the shower, although we had hot water, did not have enough pressure. The place is rustic and it is part of its charm, but, for the rates, I was expecting a little bit more. Anyway, we had a very good time.

Room Tip: We had room 7 and enjoyed it!

Having just been working 16 days without a break and 16 hours a day, it was time to get out of dusty Phnom Penh and head for Kep. I had stayed here about 2 years ago and didn’t enjoy the staff and the way the place was run. I did hear that it was under new management so I decided to give it a go. I went with my wife and it was truly delightful. The staff were very attentive, the place was clean and the drinks cold and the food great. I fully recommend Nature’s Garden Resort for a day or a month.

I feel like Tarzan & Jane will come by the pool side and drink with us...This is a good spot in Kep to relax and have fun with friends by the pool and enjoy the sunset. Very attentive staff and I like the furnitures. Comfortable bed and cozy room. We really enjoyed our stay here!

My husband and I had a wonderful 2 night stay at Nature's Garden. The bungalows are clean and spacious and the surrounding garden is beautiful and well maintained. There is a nice swimming pool and plenty of sun loungers to relax on.
The staff are very friendly and eager to please. Breakfast is included - the pancakes are great. We ate lunch and dinner at the restaurant on both days - everything freshly cooked to order and all the seafood was simply delicious.
The track up to the resort from the main road is pretty bumpy - the staff can take you down to the crab market in a tuktuk for $3, or it's about a 20 minute walk.
I would definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for some relaxation in Kep!

Peaceful and charming resort at a reasonable price. Not beachfront (in a beach town) but wonderfully quiet. Nice pool. Staff bent over backward to make us feel welcome and served us well. Manager is also part owner and was very friendly, sharing the story of the resort and explaining that the new team of owners is working hard to overcome negative reviews from the past. We liked the thatched roof bungalows - basic but charming, with good mattresses and a nice little private patio area. Dining space can double as an outdoor meeting space, and I plan to go back with a group in the new year for some leadership development training.

Room Tip: front bungalows are more accessible, back bungalows quietest (although all were quiet when we were t...

We really enjoyed our stay here.

Positives -
Great staff - especially Ron!
Huge pool
Gorgeous fresh fruit straight from the garden
The best pancakes in Cambodia at breakfast!
Huge rooms

Not really negatives but things to be aware of before you you choose to stay here.

The bungalows have grass roofs, this means sometimes bits my fall down and you may find the odd moth or gecko around.

No TV's in the rooms - not a problem for us but something worth knowing before.

Location is slightly out of the way - tuktuk to crab market is approx $4. The grounds here are beautiful so you may not want to leave. Food also great.

Don't let these points put you off, we really enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The standout things for us were the staff, the owner and the manager. Right from the Off they made us feel welcome and they played a huge part in the holiday that we had. Theara, the manager was great but the owner, Danny was a fantastic guy and the real life of the resort. Thanks for being such great hosts!
