The Vine

After our disastrous stay in Kampot, we decided to ignore our budget for a few days and stay at The Vine Retreat in Kep (not that much over budget at just $35 a night), which came highly recommended. The hotel is set on an organic farm and serves up local food (not unusual for Cambodia, since it's much easier to get something grown nearby than from a big store or company). They have a solar-filtered pool, an outdoor bar where we have spent hours on end lounging and reading, and views of the acres of farmland around. It has been amazing to spend a few days out in the countryside: we went for a bike ride through a local village, and then explored the bigger roads by tuk-tuk. If you should ever find yourself on the south coast of Cambodia, do not miss The Vine. It's one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at, and for a fraction of the cost of a Motel 6 in the US.
