Knai Bang Chatt
Kep's most luxurious
What we say:
Listed on Conde Nast Traveler's Hot List 2007, and with rates that start at $110 a night (skyrocketing up to $350), this luxurious compound isn't trying to be anything but the very best. The setting is sublime -- a landscaped lawn estate with a sizeable horizon pool, artfully placed hammocks and massage salas accompanied by a wooden, open-air restaurant along the waterfront which offers terrific views across the Gulf of Thailand and serves up fine healthy food. The architecture is unmatched too, the three main buildings all beautiful 1960s structures with simple, straight lines, and low-slung, open-air walkways. The rooms vary in their minimalist style and positioning -- most, though not all, have sea views. A reading room/library by the swimming pool has WiFi and there's ample public veranda space to enjoy the views. When we last visited during low season, most of the place was under construction, with the manager explaining that the whole place gets updated and repainted annually and that there are plans to add eight additional rooms in 2010. Our previous reviewer said that the resort lacked five-star service. We waited around to speak to a manager for some time and when he arrived, he was pleasant, helpful, and informative. Guests have access to the Beach Club next door and its array of water sports on offer, including snorkelling trips, hobie cat sailboats and windsurfing. Phally, the staff masseuse, is supposedly known countrywide.
