Southern Cambodia and Kep: A destination on the rise

Southern Cambodia is currently undergoing an exciting transformation with the opening of a new lifestyle hub in the coastal province of Kep. Our Business Development Manager Sorya Song had a chance to explore the region’s new landmarks and shares her thoughts on what this means for travel in the region.

Launched earlier this year, Kep West is the most recent addition to the region’s social scene. The dining, entertainment and relaxation centre is located on the same stretch of beach as Knai Bang Chatt, a boutique resort with beautifully restored villas set around an iconic blue mansion. The resort remains a highlight of the destination, delivering the same luxury amenities and idyllic garden or sea views that visitors have come to expect.

With the addition of Kep West, guests now have a choice of three new dining destinations – Café Grande, The Deck and Crab & Co – each with their own distinct culinary offerings and style. According to Sorya, the building’s striking, contemporary architecture backed by the dreamy coastal scenery make this the perfect place to indulge in a sunset cocktail or two.

The nearby Sailing Club also offers a casual dining experience with spacious areas for families with kids to play.

In addition to culinary experiences, Kep West has launched the Sailing and Discovery Centre, which offers a wide range of water sports and other seaside activities for people of all ages. Sailing, paddleboarding, sea kayaking, beach volleyball, kite surfing and jet skiing classes are available. Bicycles are also available for hire so guests can explore the nearby national park or cycle to the Crab Market for a taste of Kep’s fresh and famous pepper-infused crustaceans.
