Spotless and serene
Kampot Road, Kep T: (088) 411 2424, (088) 441 2525
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 very comfortable and attractive circular stone and thatch bungalows sharing plentiful hot-water bathrooms between them. 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. They can also rent you motor scooters for $5 a day. As Kep is not known for its 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. WiFi available. Highly recommended.
