Le Flamboyant is one of the loveliest spots that we found in Kep.

Boasting not just one but two pools to serve 28 beautifully designed villas, the hotel is set in blooming gardens whose grass is kept clipped by a resident pony. Le Flamboyant really stands head and shoulders above its price peers, and it’s not just because they make their own bread, whose scents nearly made us faint when we went to check it out. The rooms are stylishly decorated, almost to the point of decadence, but they hold back to create a classy, romantic feel with plenty of space, which is accentuated by the high ceilings. Even the large bathrooms look romantic. Each bungalow has its own private balcony and each one gives straight out into the gardens. Two pools, neither of which is open to non-guests -- so you are guaranteed space and a little more privacy -- are on each side of the main building. This means you can chase or escape the sun as you wish. One also has a shallow paddling pool for children, who will also be delighted by the small play area with climbing frame at the top of the gardens. Grown-ups will be pleased to find one of the only gyms in Kep, which has a small selection of modern, well-maintained equipment. They expect to open a spa on site in 2016.
