“Something different”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at this most unusual accommodation. Our home was very nice and quite large with two bedrooms, a huge living area and great views of the sea. We liked the gardens around the complex, very nice indeed. We enjoyed the breakfast and the meals in the main restaurant. We found the hotel just over the road from our one to have a much better quality restaurant. The local crab market was ok and sure the fresh fish and seafood was great, the area was quite dirty with cockroaches running around the restaurant floor. We enjoyed our stay but not sure we would return, we would stay at the Veranda Hotel.

I stayed here on my own a few years ago and suggested to my wife that we stayed here on this trip.
I am glad we did as my wife loved it.
The accommodation is amazing, we stayed in Sopheah and slept each night with the shutters wide open. I don't know how wise this is but we came to no harm. A couple of years ago we paid over 250 dollars a night to stay in a 'treehouse' in Costa Rica and it wasn't a patch on this place.
The grounds are lovely and the location is ideal.
They arranged for two mopeds for our stay which made getting around a lot easier but there are Tuk Tuks or taxis as well.
They organised a taxi to pick us up firstly from Phnom Penh and at the end of our stay take us to Battambang, all turned up on time and delivered us safely for the normal going rate.
We had dinner on 3 of our 5 nights there and each meal was excellent in a lovely peaceful setting.
However lastly and most importantly is the service from the employees, from 6.30am to 9.30pm we were served by the most delightful girls and always with a big smile, no matter how much I pay in England I doubt I could get anywhere near this standard.
Excellent and thank you.

I am so happy in this marvelous bungalow. The exquisiteness of the decoration, the view, the contort.
This is just a place for me far from the standards of a normal hotel. Le Bout du Monde is a truly Cambodian experience. The nature that surrounds you and the very friendly staff and owner not to talk of the exquisite cuisine.
I will never forget!!!! for me this is the subtle blend of French taste and Asian exquisiteness.

I LOVE IT !!!!!

After reading all the reviews we pre booked this place really looking forward to it. Checked out after one night. Have stayed at some pretty basic hotels but for the price this just was not worth it! Sheets old and filthy, mattress and pillows rocks, shower dribbled and bathroom dirty. The worst part was the damp, mouldy smell. Also only a water glimpse through the trees. Moved into town across from the beach amazing view, comfortable spotless room.

Room Tip: Check it out first.

Your excessive comment indicates that you did not know how to choose your hotel and so your opinion is very superficial.

We absolutely loved our 3 night stay here. Be warned though.....it is so lovely, peaceful and secluded that you won't want to venture far!! :-) Apart from a couple of walks in the National Park which backs on to the property, a coffee at Led Zep Cafe (a few hundred metres up the road in the National Park) and a tuktuk ride to the Crab Market for lunch one day, we just enjoyed the beautiful surrounds of Le Bout du Monde, eco pool and restaurant. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, the accommodation is (rustically) superb and very comfy and the room we had was the perfect spot for lovely sunset photos! One little thing I discovered was that you got uninterrupted hot water for a shower if you turned the ceiling fan off! We have such fond memories of our time in this idyllic spot and have already recommended it to a number of friends.

Glorious ocean views over the Gulf of Thailand whilst lazing in a hammock on the balcony of your own Khmer tree house in the rainforest. It doesn't get much better! A nice variety of accommodation options all with that authentic Khmer influence. The wonderful restaurant also has stunning views & is ideal for breakfast lunch or dinner. The food is fantastic & the staff are very friendly. The pace of life in Kep is something else. Incredibly relaxed, friendly & chilled out & Le Bout du Monde epitomises everything about it. Would loved to have stayed much, much, much longer. It is a short walk down the hill to the crab market. Directly behind the place is the Kep National Park & a fantastic walking trail that winds it's way around the mountain, complete with some stunning views, plenty of monkeys & a nice picnic/rest spot. Awesome!

I could write what the majority have written in their reviews, but that would just repeat the obvious, just to say the plaudits are all valid.

The little things that added to our pleasure were as follows;

There was never any pressure to go out, the room was just magically attended to before your return. You could walk stark naked around your veranda and no one would see you. It was hard to believe at times that other guests were staying. The pickup from Phnom Penh airport and a return for us to a hotel there, was without hitch or stress. The friendliness of the staff was heart felt.

There were little things like, umbrellas, bottle openers, slippers supplied. Breakfast was wonderful and the wifi was very good.

Our most endearing memory will be laying in bed at night and listening to the insects and creatures of the jungle. It can't be bottled, people have to visit and stay to experience it. Always have at the back of your mind, the price you are paying for this wonderful experience, value through and through!

We used the hotels proximity to the National Park to explore (but that I will cover in another review). The Crab Markets were a moderate stroll of about 15 minutes, but save some energy for returning up hill (we are both in our early sixties and found little problem). We walked to Kep beach and pier (allow about 30 minutes).

There are always plenty of Tuk Tuk's at hand, we used a driver called David (who asked us to give him a plug) to take us to Kampot, which is a pleasant journey. There are several ATM's there by the Durian Roundabout and they are quite easy to find.

Finally, could we commend the swimming pool, beautiful, the two German Shepherds, they were also beautiful. Well done Le Bout du Monde, we will always remember you for your welcome, friendliness and memories.

Room Tip: The all seem good to me, obviously the higher up in the grounds the better the view. They are all we...
