This is a lovely place away from the noisy towns. I love the old wooden house and the atmosphere was great! The food was pretty good, although not everything on the menu was available and the prices were a little higher than our usual budget. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the family room was very spacious. The only... More

I LOVED THE VINE RETREAT! it's a beautiful house located among an organic farm of fresh produce and pepper plantations. The house is clean and the food is amazing (very fresh, much better than what you'd get in PHP and Siem Reap). The staff are friendly and attentive. I was here for a yoga retreat and our group absolutely loved... More

My friends & I stayed for a night here. It is located amidst the many pepper farms in Kep. Natural and peaceful surroundings. The staff is very obliging in providing us with a 5-cent tour of the pepper farm at no additional cost. They actually do this for free even for those who aren't guests of the hotel, which I... More

The vine retreat was a fantastic place to relax in a beautiful place with great food. Our room was bright and spacious and came with a fantastic view. The staff are friendly too and kep is a short tuk tuk ride away. Would definitely come back to visit this place again.

Sometimes you just need a hammock and a view. At least that's how I felt after six weeks of life as an ex-pat in Phnom Penh back in 2011. I found respite at The Vine Retreat, a rustic eco-friendly hotel in the southeastern Cambodian province of Kep. There, simplicity is the name of the game. With little to do but... More

This is exactly the kind of place you tend to be unable to find when you're on a backpacker's budget. It's secluded and out of the way, so you get to enjoy the quietude of the Cambodian countryside, which I cannot recommend enough as an antidote to Siem Reap or Phnom Penh. The restaurant is a floor up and has... More

The building and surrounds are nice especially the pool water and stone surfaces, which are perfect for recovering at the end of the day, and the second level bar/common area for unwinding with a nice outlook (although the coast is distant).

They say that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. That's the Vine Retreat. Our first reaction was very much a case of 'What have we booked into?'. This impression was not improved by the room which was very cramped (nowhere to sit except on the bed), a broken mirror on the wardrobe, and perpetually dark. We were very,... More
