Tuk-Tuk Pick Up


It was hard to estimated what time I will arrived in Kep from Sihanoukville. My transportation got delayed arrived in Kep, as I already mentioned my arrival time with the resort, they already had the tuktuk waiting for me at the bus/van station in Kep. I also informed that I will be delayed for an hour. When I arrived at the station, I was greeted by my tuktuk to bring me to the resort, I was really surprise he still waiting for me patiently despite of the delay. He was friendly. Journey from bus station to the resort, took about 3-4 minutes.

Check-in / Lobby

When arrived at the resort, I was greet by the bell staff and he helped me with my luggage. It was really beautiful resort from the first impression I stepped out from the tuktuk. It is very green and the surrounding just calm and very relaxing.


The main reception building is a renovated seaside cottage from Kep’s past that was lying in ruins before the resort owners decided it was too beautiful to ignore and decided to restore it to its former glory. The stunningly-designed Khmer-style villas use regional materials to create chic, calming spaces.

Myself then checked-in, it was smooth,and the reception is an open space. Nothing much, and they have like a lounge with a small library. It was good. Just for your info, here, there are only 12 villas, so it's a little privacy. 

After checked-in, the bell staffs helped me with my luggage and guide me to my villa.




Deluxe Double Villa

When I arrived at my villa, it was breathtakingly gorgeous and spacious. The bed is super amazing and very comfortable and including the mosquito nett. It is like I am ready for my honeymoon, unfortunately I was here single.

What I love is when I pull the blind of my glass window, and the green view pop up. It was really relaxing when you are on your bed while surrounded with the serene view.

The TV area also great with with a big sofa. I love the office table area as here is where I done all my worked. If you can see, there are big fans near the office table as the room too spacious, the AC might not very cold. 

The drawer and cupboard also big. Inside they provided the insect spray as if you want to get rid of mosquitoes inside your villa. As its surrounded by the garden, some of mosquitoes might lost to your villa.







Open Bathroom

What I love the most about this villa, its offering open bathroom. The bathroom is really huge. There are 3 ways to have your shower, first normal shower rain, second using the water big vase where you need to use traditional coconut dipper. And other one, of course the bathtub.

The shower area is surrounded by the green plant and it is quiet relaxing when you are taking the dip in the bathtub, and enjoying the warm bath.

But to be honest, it is quiet challenging to use the toilet in the middle of the night when you are staying alone.






Breakfast / Dining


As for the breakfast, there are few menus you can choose. So I chose pancake, I also mentioned I do want any meat as they also offered bacon as a side dish. The waiter seems understand what I said, unfortunately, when my pancake arrived, it accompanied with bacon. So I asked them to remove the bacon and changing the new plate. So, the waiters here, a little bit struggle to understand English. As per photo, that's all my breakfast.

The restaurant, Chankiri, serves a delicious selection of International and Khmer specialties which you can enjoy in the restaurant itself, on the panoramic terrace, beachside, poolside, on the platform at the end of the jetty, on the platform at the end of the board walk, in the mangrove forest or on your own private terrace! Your wish really is their command! Check out the Panoramic Rooftop Bar for staggering views which are very nicely accompanied by a fabulous range of cocktail and tapas.




Swimming Pool

Even this resort only offered 12 villas, but they have really huge swimming pool. You can do a view olympic lapse here if you want to. Unfortunately, I requested towel a few times with the staffs at the restaurant, but still I did not get any towel. At last, I backed to my villa in wet. In my opinion, their staffs need a lot to improve with communication skill and their services, as this resort, the guest is not as many as city hotel, if one person at one time, they can't handle, I am not very sure how they handle a large group. Hoping they can improve from time to time as the resort is amazing.




Beach

Like I mentioned earlier, here is the only one resort with their own beach. You can enjoy the sea and view with a little privacy away from the touristic area.

At the beach, there is barbecue facilities provided and massage hut, where you can have your massage at the beach with a sea view.

The bonus is, here you can enjoy very beautiful sunset. And they have very long wooden bridge, I think is about 200m. It is really cool, reminded me with U Bein bridge in Mandalay, Myanmar.






Location

It is about 3 minutes tuk tuk ride from bus station or Crab Market area, with the fare of 3USD. It's really a long walk from Crab Market (2km), but you can use the bicycle from the resort. At night, the road to the resort is really dark. Avoid to use bicycle or walk at the main road at night.

Conclusion

Samanea Beach Resort is a little gems in Kep, Cambodia. If you are looking for a privacy, and romantic trips or family gateway, here is the best place for you! I would love to stay here again, but next time with my love one.
