The highlight of this peaceful resort is its location amidst the lush greenery of Hillside mountain and the great views over the sea from the verandas. Excellent spot of sunsets.
"After spending one disappointing night in Sihanoukville which I thought was one of the tackiest beach resorts I have ever been to in the world (and I have been to a lot of beach resorts!!) Kep and The Veranda Hotel were a lifesaver. Kep is small and potentially an elegant resort if they "do the right thing." The bungalows that Veranda offers go from very basic little tree houses almost to quite lavish rooms and a beautiful villa. However, everything is simply done and it is not over the top at all. They have just 2 months ago opened a beautiful large swimming pool which I personally had a hard time leaving for any activity around Kep. I passed on Rabbit Island but did do the walk around Kep National Park which they estimated to be a 2 1/2 hour walk that I did in half the time. You go at your own pace. I found it a very easy walk... The owners Lili and Mab are terrific people and deserve all the success they get of creating this wonderful resort literally out of the jungle."
