Cambodia Hotel Guide :: More Eco Lodging In Kep
HotelChatter and Jaunted Contributing Editor Claire Duffett is now reporting from Cambodia and this week she is giving us the low-down on the hotel scene. Any questions about accommodations? Send 'em to us and we'll get them answered for ya.
Earlier this week, we told you about Rainbow Lodge in the jungles of southwestern Cambodia. Turns out, the place has some company in the world of midrange eco lodges in the country wedged between Thailand and Laos.
Veranda Natural Resort, in Kep, Cambodia, has many of the amenities of Rainbow at half the price ($25 versus $50, though Rainbow's fee includes three delicious daily meals). It also includes 24-hour electricity and air conditioning, welcome amenities that might call the eco-friendly claims into question.
Kep, a sleepy town that's just now, for better or for worse, waking up to tourism, is located on the ocean. The beach there is lousy, we hear, but a short boat ride from the virtually uninhabited Rabbit Island a 20-minute boat ride away, which offers better sand and debris-free surf.
