Hotel Facilities & Highlights
Your Host & The Team
“Samanea was built around a historic abandoned house. Set on 2 hectares, our 12 villas were built in harmony with the plants and trees to create a unique place to relax and disconnect from routine life. We like to share our story and experiences with our guests, and our innate desire to protect our most important treasure—nature.”
Welcome to Kep
Once the favourite seaside retreat of colonial-era French holiday-makers where a resort in Kep was the ‘must have’, the quiet town of Kep was long abandoned and nearly forgotten with the retreat of the French. In recent years, it’s become favoured once again by those looking for a tranquil escape and a stay at a Kep boutique hotel will not disappoint. Wander down to the southwest coast of Cambodia to idyll away your days, stroll sandy beaches and discover colonial haunts. A stay at a boutique beach resort in Kep is the perfect antidote for life in a chaotic world.
In an effort to minimize its carbon footprint, Samanea draws its water directly from an underground mountain stream. No pump is used to supply the various buildings as the circulation of water is done by a gravity system. In addition, all wastewater passes through a system with five settling ponds. Each of these basins is divided into three compartments, so that the decanted water can be discharged into the ground through a system of hose-bores in order to not contaminate the water table below as well as the seawater. It also has implemented channels to recover rainwater in which to water the mangrove.
To further help preserve the environment, Samenea cleans the mangrove every week. The resort also hires local staff and reduces half of its electricity power with solar panels.
“Located on the beach with a long jetty to the sea next to a mangrove, this property was previously the House of the Vietnamese Consul during the occupation, but it was destroyed at the end of the war. The owner first renovated the original house, then planned the tropical gardens, built the new villas, and replanted the mangrove.”
Kim, the discoverer.
