Spotless and serene
With spotless bathrooms, beautiful designs and comfortable beds, Bacoma is a backpacker dream.
The breezy covered restaurant area, with stone pillars and a lotus pond, sets the tone for the natural accommodation spaced out for privacy across the large garden. The cheapest rooms are circular stone and thatch bungalows sharing plentiful cold water bathrooms, but if you have a little more to spend, then a night in a traditional Khmer wooden house is a treat. All rooms come with good linen, mosquito nets and storage. The crab market is a five minute walk away, and Bacoma has free bicycles to borrow if you want to go further afield. As Kep is not known for it's nightlife, the pool table and regular movie showings on a big screen are welcome distractions, and if you don't want to eat out, the food is well priced and generously portioned. A newcomer on the Kep scene, Barcoma is an all-round hit which is likely to become very popular. WiFi available.
