“Beautiful Property in Kep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

We just stayed at Villa Romonea here for 3 nights and had a very nice time in Kep. Villa Romonea is a beautifully restored New Khmer villa on a huge slice of coastline property. The pool and deck area is wonderful and we enjoyed the beach front pavillion as well. The house is run almost like a vacation rental and you treat it like your own home (which we enjoyed). The management is happy to arrange for a scooter, bikes, etc. which we took full advantage of. For two of the nights we stayed there it was full, but it there is definitely enough space for everyone to enjoy. For our last night, we had the place all to ourselves and it was magic. There is a great breakfast spread, but for the rest of the day you are on your own - the arrangement they've made is that they can pick up food from several of the local restaurants for lunch or dinner. They have menus at the ready and you just tell them what you want and it is delivered and then set-up/plated for you as though it's a restaurant. I was skeptical at first, but I actually liked this arrangement. The staff is very nice, but again it is treated more like a vacation rental than a place with 5-star service - there is always a manager present but don't expect someone to come by asking if you want a drink every 10 minutes (I actually enjoy a place where I can just walk into the kitchen and grab a beer if I want). They have stocked beers, wines, etc. and you just let them know what you take if you serve yourself. When we brought home mangos or pineapple from the market, the staff was more than happy to prepare for us. We stayed in one of the large rooms upstairs and it was great. Beautiful views, comfy bed, and a huge bathroom. We also toured all the rooms while we were there and they were all nicely appointed (the rooms downstairs in the main house are small, but at this property you should be outside, in the kitchen, on the lawn, in pool, at the beach veranda, (i.e., anywhere but your room) most of the time. Kep is one of the most peaceful places we've been in SE asia and Villa Romonea is a great place to soak it all up. I hope more places like this pop up in Kep. Artful, low impact development with a focus on highlighting the glory days of Kep-sur-Mer.
