The main reason
The bedroom in a bungalow at Nataya Coral Bay Resort, 17kms west of Kampot
The real focus of my whistle-stop trip to Kampot and Kep at the weekend was to pay a visit to a bunch of hotels, old and new. For some it was quite literally poke my head in the door then out again, others it was a more formal inspection. The latter included new resorts like Nataya in Kampot and Eskepe in Kep. Here's some pictures to show you a few places I visited.
A view of the Nataya bungalows, which houses two separate rooms
The 1km beach at Nataya is a big attraction. I think it used to be the Queen's favourite beach in bygone times.
The Magic Sponge GH in Kampot. Clean and comfortable, housed in a former building used by Acleda Bank.
Simplicity reigns in one of the bedrooms at Knai Bang Chatt in Kep
A view of Eskepe, a gorgeous house for rent in Kep, which is still to be completed
The pool and grounds looking out to sea at Eskepe in Kep
The eco-friendly Vine Retreat outside Kep has rooms on 2 floors and a relaxation area above that
