Vanna Hill Resort

Vanna Hill Resort

Great pool

More on Kep

Just below Veranda and Le Bout du Monde, Vanna is another bungalow and pool combination with spectacular sunset views.

Travelfish says:

It doesn’t have quite the same glamour as the other two, but Vanna is a good option if your budget doesn’t stretch that far, offering the same views, and a huge pool with a bar right beside it. The well-sized bungalows are a mix of concrete and wood -- the cheaper ones are wood and higher up the hill. They are great value, especially if you can score the one with the clear view out to sea from the balcony, with hot water, porches and a homey, comfortable feel. We weren’t able to get in to the other rooms as they were almost fully booked, but on the last visit found that they lacked the finesse that would justify paying more. The twin beds are quite narrow and many of the bathrooms are wet rooms, which is not to everyone’s taste. A few rooms aren’t ocean facing but the same price as those that are, so be sure to specify you want a seaview when you book or see a few rooms when you visit. The accommodation is set behind a platform restaurant with that fine ocean vista. The menu isn’t the cheapest and you may have to hunt down a waiter, but the inclusive breakfast is pretty good. The large pool has a shallow kids’ section and is a pleasant place to spend an afternoon. It’s $5 for visitors, reduced to $3 if you order food and drink at the bar.
