The view from your Veranda: authentic Kep

The Veranda Natural Resort and Restaurant is hidden below Kep National Park in a secluded Eden overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Tral (Phu Quoc) island and Bokor Mountain. Here you will find a retreat dedicated to the finer things in life – to beauty, tranquility and exquisite food.

It’s located only a few hours from the Phnom Penh airport but you’ll feel light-years away from civilisation, ready to experience true Kep in all its splendour.

Raised walkways crafted from stone and wood connect all of the resort’s private bungalows. Visit some of the area’s most iconic attractions and then discover your own hidden gems. Or maybe just lounge by one of the biggest saltwater pools in Kep, enjoying stunning views of the natural surroundings as the tropical breeze brings you fragrances from the wildflowers up on the mountains.

Veranda Natural Resort consists of 40 rooms, suites, bungalows and villas in an unspoiled natural environment – and with a décor to match.

Each room combines traditional, indigenous and artistic architectural designs with the kind of comforts that make the stay unforgettable, such as a private veranda offering cool mountain breezes and panoramic views of the ocean and sunset.

The resort’s restaurant is renowned for its signature seafood and Khmer dishes, and also has proved popular with visitors for its freshly cooked breakfast, snacks and dinner.

Cocktails, fruit juices and ice-cream dishes are also available – and also delectable.

Veranda serves an interesting mix of Khmer and Western dishes. One of our recommendations is steamed fish with ginger, which is a perfectly cooked whitefish plucked fresh from nearby waters. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and is served with soy sauce, vinegar and meat soup, plus sides of steamed rice and stir-fried vegetables flavoured with parsley and thinly sliced ginger.

Not enough? There’s still a whole lot more to see and do at Veranda, including a mini-mart, spa, bakery, souvenir shop, billiards hall, outdoor swimming pool and bookshop café.

Veranda Natural Resort and Restaurant is located in Kep town. For bookings or enquiries, call the friendly staff at +855 (0) 12 888 619.
