Paradise Found!”

Ambience, location, service all top notch
Coffee-making and refrigerator

We loved Knai Bang Chatt. After 3 weeks in Cambodia and some very good accommodation we decided that this place, and it's location in sleepy seaside Kep was one of the very best. The minimalist, modernist decor of the villas was aesthetically pleasing, and comfort was in no way compromised. We had the top front villa of the original building with views to die for. The staff were wonderful and attentive, and the managers Marion and Rudi made us feel very welcome and special. The food was divine - the Sailing Club for cocktails and relaxed fare, and the set menu in the oceanside pavilion were both brilliant, and the breakfasts were fantastic.The massage in the spa was also one of the best ever in a lovely peaceful room. The only thing on the wishlist would be the availability of coffee and tea making facilities and a refrigerator for the use of guests in the library...we felt uncomfortable asking the (more than willing!) staff for coffee every time we felt like one, especially late at night, and would have liked somewhere accessible to chill our special wine to drink on the balcony at sunset. But all told a most indulgent four days in paradise...couldn't recommend this resort more highly! Well done Knai Bang Chatt, we'll certainly be back.

Highly Recommended”

My adult daughter and I stayed at the resort for six nights in April, 2016. I highly recommend Knai Bang Chatt resort. The resort has a very interesting history and the owner has moved to preserve it. Both the buildings and the grounds are lovely and the public areas and rooms are very tastefully and uniquely decorated. Both the resort restaurant and the nearby Beach Club restaurant serve excellent food, including very good local dishes, at a fair price. You can also easily walk to a variety of local restaurants located by the nearby crab market. Although the resort does not have a beach, it is ocean side and you can enjoy the smells and sounds as the waves break. The sunset can be beautiful.It also has a lovely, clean pool. My adult daughter and I experienced the fishing excursion. The guide was excellent and the lunch superb. We very much enjoyed the day on the water- travelling in a small boat, fishing for small fish that were later cooked for us at one of the Beach Club and snorkelling. The service at the resort was absolutely first rate. The staff were very kind and attentive. My daughter fell ill before a second planned excursion and we had to cancel on short notice. The staff were very understanding and we did not have to pay a cancellation fee. They were genuinely concerned about her well being. A fine resort.

A Calming Way to Unwind away from the City Life”

+ Knai Bang Chatt is an amazing resort perched on the edge of Kep beach within walking distance to the Crab Market. Almost everything about the resort puts your mind in the state of calmness and serenity. Those foldup chairs, hammocks, and waterproof mattresses at the beachfront area overlooking the sea are my favorites together with the shades from the trees and the grass-covered landscape the hotel has got to offer. -Though the facilities, location and services of the resort are almost impeccable, I feel the rooms could be better furnished and upgraded. We paid USD 225 for our Deluxe Seaview room, yet we felt the rooms fell short in terms of luxury and comfort in comparison to other hotels of the same price range.

Slice of luxury in sleep seaside village”

View/ambience, restaurant, pool

Knai Bang Chatt is a serene slice of luxury in the sleepy seaside village of Kep. The boutique resort is French owned and operated, and the only one of its caliber in the area. The rooms are simply and elegantly decorated with dark woods and soft white linens. Room service comes twice a day, early to clean and while you're at dinner for turn-down service. So after enjoying an expertly prepared meal at their open-air restaurant, you'll return to a sweet bedtime treat and your mosquito netting turned down for you. The infinity pool is lovely, as is the spa. We had only two complaints. The first is that the hotel advertises free wi-fi both in common areas and within your own room. That is simply not the case. We stayed 5 nights and the wi-fi never worked once in our room, and worked only sporadically in the restaurant and by the pool. Also, our shower had low water pressure and the water never got very warm. I realize that in both these cases they're dealing with nature's restraints. But they should not advertise the wi-fi. However, the staff was amazing and offered us a late check-out before we even asked for it.

Extremely relaxing”

Atmosphere, location, and proximity to the ocean

It was my first time staying at Knai Bang Chatt and my third trip to Kep. After a wonderful and extremely relaxing weekend, I will probably only stay at Knai Bang Chatt from now on. The best thing about the hotel (and Kep) is the atmosphere. There are prettier beaches and more dramatic landscapes elsewhere, but there are few places more relaxing. I am looking forward to my next trip!

Beautiful location”

Knai Bang Chatt is set on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the Sea of Thailand. The rooms are large and comfortable and housed in 1960s style buildings. The pool is salt water, which someone people like since it's better for your skin, but I find that it doesn't kill the algae and parts of the pool floor were slimy. The food at both The Sailing Club and The Strand is delicious and very inexpensive. My biggest complaint about the resort is the restaurant staff. They are really lackadaisical in their service. When I sat down for breakfast on all three days, no one came over to offer me coffee or take my order. It was unclear whether you had to go up to the counter to give your order or wait for someone to take it. I noticed they took the orders for some guests, but not me. Also, they didn't refill or offer more coffee and weren't very friendly. The same thing happened at The Sailing Club. I walked into the restaurant and stood there not sure where to go while staff member after staff member just walked by me without even saying hello. The rest of the hotel staff were great. The front desk manager was friendly and kind as were the people who came to clean the room. It was just the restaurant staff that seemed not to really care. It's a shame, because the food is delicious, as are the drinks.

charming get away”

Location, old colonial charm, food

We had a wonderful week long stay. We found the locals to be very sincere and friendly. The grounds are charming and well kept, lots of places to sit/eat and enjoy the ocean views. The national park is a 10 minute walk from the resort also lovely to spend time in. Would like to encourage owners to do away with the individual bottled water and replace with water stations using the larger more economical bottles. Perhaps a complimentary re-usable bottle for each guest. The resort makes a point of wanting to be more eco friendly and this would be a huge contribution and positive example to the community. Thank you Knai Bang Chatt, we'll be back, Rachel

A great weekend getaway.”

I live in Phnom Penh and come to Kep a couple times a year to get away from the city and relax. Knai Bang Chatt is a great place if you're looking for some peace and quiet, want to lounge around, read a book, write/draw, etc. The staff are great, the place is clean, and the food is excellent. I stayed here when there was a seasonal rate of about 50% of their regular price, which made the value for money great.

We also love that it was peaceful and quiet. It seemed like we were the only guests there as we hardly saw the rest of their guests.

On arrival I was met by professional and courteous staff who showed me to my lovely room and then I ventured to the restaurant where first class food was served by very friendly staff.

Architecture is great, view and amenities are impeccable. Staff is fantastic.

I had the pleasure of spending time at Knai Bang Chatt in April. From the moment I entered the manicured grounds of the resort I was in heaven. The restored modernist architecture set along the coastline and anything you could need during your stay is available to you. I came here as a solo traveler to relax and decompress from my stressful job and this place surely did the trick. The dining was great, both under the thatched hut for breakfast and at the Yacht Club for dinner.

Best place to stay in Cambodia”

I have lived in Cambodia for 5 years and this is the first time I have stayed at Knai Bang Chatt. Now I'm about to leave and I regret that 100%. It is bar far the best place in Cambodia to stay. It's a retreat to recharge the batteries, eat great food in beautiful surroundings. The spa was amazing. I had a massage and facial. Both were fabulous and I felt very revived afterwards. Breakfast was delicious. Had fruit, bread, cheeses and fresh juice in a buffet style. Then you could order from a menu for eggs, bacon etc. They even had a noddle station. You are a walk through a gate to the sailing club which also has amazing food.

I love this place! I have stayed twice at Knai Bang Chatt and will stay again in the future. Definitely one of my favorite places in Cambodia to relax and get away from the city. Spending a day laying by the pool and watching the gorgeous sunsets is amazing. The staff are very attentive and helpful. I think what sets this resort apart is its attention to detail. Love it!

Kep's "UltraChic Boutique Hotel" delivers”

1) KBC's chef, kitchen and menu are superb, 2) spotless, well-maintained facilities; ocean view is breathtaking, 3) KBC's staff is 5-star; beyond comparison.

After a semi-wild cab ride from Siem Reap to Kep, turning left onto the road outside KBC's secluded compound, we knew we had made the right choice for what turned out to be our all too brief stay with Knai Bang Chatt's most welcoming staff in this manicured retreat from all that could possibly afflict today's traveler. Highest praise to the KBC staff; from our welcome to our farewell, the staff can easily be said to have added to our overwhelming positive experience. There is everything good to be said for KBC's staff who accommodated our every request. The kitchen is fantastic and not to be missed. Not inexpensive, KBC's menu, chef and atmosphere facing the ocean make the dining experience one to experience. You could (and should) go and eat crab at the market; however, if at KBC, do not miss their dining experience! Out at the end of the pier adjacent to the Sailing Club we took our regular swim....it's very satisfactory, considering KBC does not have the type of sandy beach found over at Kep's interchange. Excellent pool, grounds, cabana's and other details make it a delight to just be in the sun...luxuriate in the stillness...and read a book. We were a couple and thoroughly enjoyed the solitude. One evening we took the Veuve Clicquot to the rooftop and watched the sun set; the best. Would we book KBC again? Absolutely.

Excellent architecture and view, a few problems”

Sea view; architecture; nice decor; relaxing

Knai Bang Chatt is a series of beautiful architect designed modernist villas facing the sea in Kep, which is (still) a sleepy and relaxing Cambodian seaside resort. A perfect spot for relaxing - look at the sea, take nice ways, eat seafood etc. The overall look and design of the hotel is very nice, although as with all buildings in very tropical climates, the rooms need a lot of upkeep. Knai Bang Chatt is a bit like a small 'Six Senses' but with fewer amenities, slightly lower standards, and not as perfect a presentation. Pros: Friendly staff, relaxed feel, great architecture which reminds you of what Kep must have been like in the 1960s. Landscaping and pool area is nicely designed, but small. Seaview is excellent. Day beds are very relaxing. Good standard breakfast in nice breakfast bar area with sea view. Cons: For what it offers, it is overpriced and not great value (compared for example, to a Six Senses Resort). The total area is small, and there are new developments being built around the hotel, so it may become crowded. Construction noise carries over from across the road. The 'Sailing Club' bar and restaurant has a wonderful setting (best in Kep?) but the food is service is not up to standard. Ground floor rooms don't feel very private. Potentially, this is a perfect little hideaway, but I think there needs to be a higher level of service and amenities provided for the price. Kep is still lovely, but is in danger of becoming overdeveloped and there are some signs of environmental degredation - Cambodia should follow what Vietnam has done with Con Dao Island here to preserve the environment.

Beautiful, peaceful resort”

Lovely sea front setting

Knai Bang Chatt is a beautiful resort in a lovely peaceful location. Our room itself was pretty spartan - no TV, no fridge etc. As with everywhere we stayed in Cambodia, the beds were very hard. The one thing I disliked was the bathroom/toilet. The toilet was in a separate very small room with an opening to the outside covered in mosquito wire. The toilet has one very small dim light which did not make for a pleasant experience at night time, and the toilet was very warm due to the outside opening. This is also the case for the bathroom. Gardens and pool area are gorgeous. Breakfast is good, as is the food at the hotel and the sailing club bext door.

Lovely & intimate property”

By the sea, quiet, relaxing atmosphere

As we wanted a quiet getaway, Knai Bang Chatt was the perfect choice in a small town like Kep for us. We especially liked the stylish settings in rustic, low key aesthetics. The stay was restful & relaxing. Their restaurant although states fine dining, it wasn't quite the quality by most standards & has a small selection. For options, we had some meals at their sailing club next door. Great ambience again. Food is just fair not much to report. Spas is part of all our holidays, we booked a 120 minute massage each at the hotel. My husband had a great massage and clearly a more skilled therapist, mine massage was a big failure. There were lots of long pauses during the whole session. It was a non-oil massage, so there was no reaching for oil when I finally peeped to check on the therapist I observed that she was hesitating, watching her colleague who's massaging my husband. Paid full price for the services, 25% percent discount that was mentioned during our check-in was not applied. Extremely disappointing. Phnom Penh to Kampot then Kep - Via Giant Ibis, on a mini bus. Costs USD10 each person. 2.5 to 3 hrs journey with wifi. Was good & efficient. Gets us to Kampot & then we took a tuk tuk which costs another USD12. About 40-50 minutes ride. A bit of an adventure since we were there during rainy season, so it can get messy. Kep to Phnom Penh - Knai Bang Chatt front desk booked us on a big bus operated by Sorya. USD5 each. This company was 25 minutes late. What we wish we knew was that it stops every 100 metres or so, picking up passengers. It was a slow ride, & the interior was old & dingy. Journey back via Sorya 6.5 hrs! Avoid at all costs. Best to check for a non-stop service. To sum it up, this is a lovely property. Spa massage at full price is not worth it. Personally I will not repeat this experience. Front desk needs although lovely people, needs to be more informative about transport arrangements etc.
