More on Kep

Sitting above the end of Kep beach, at the beginning of the crescent that leads to to the crab market, Saravoan Hotel has views to give away.

Travelfish says:

In fact, at the prices on offer, they practically are giving them away. The 16 rooms, each with a balcony or terrace, are orientated for a sea or pool prospect, and beautifully designed with stone mosaics, concrete, water hyacinth bed platforms and old Khmer photographs. Lying in bed admiring the vista between breezy white curtains is a good way to start the day. The artistic flair extends to the bathrooms, with a rain shower, pebble mat and wooden bucket sink. Given the attention to detail on the decor, it’s disappointing that this isn’t always applied to rigorous cleaning, and the hotel is let down by intermittent WiFi, occasional lack of water pressure and a stingy inclusive American breakfast (although there’s plenty of rice to be had with the Asian option). The restaurant also serves a good selection of European and Asian food. The pool is small, but good for dipping toes and sipping a strong cocktail while looking out at the Gulf of Thailand. Saravoan’s a good choice for travellers on a splurge, and suitably romantic for couples.
