Samanea (Rain Tree) Beach Resort is a little paradise in the middle of 5 HA Botanical Park along the seashore of Kep,

the favorite destination Cambodia’s during the 50’s and the 60’s, and next to our protected mangrove forest.

Enjoy the infinity pool of 300m2 with integrated Jacuzzi jets or the private seafront,

sipping a cocktail and listening to the parrots while looking at the stunning sunset on the Bay of Thailand and the Bokor Mountain.

The ruins of seaside cottage were lying on the land before the Resorts construction. We tried to use the same materials (bricks, stone, cement tiles) for its renovation (It is now the reception) and for the other buildings, for a better integration in Nature. The sumptuous natural surrounding where Samanea is situated gave us the obligation to give a very special attention to environment and sustainability issues.

“It’s like a park when you first see it, spacious uncluttered and green, green, green. The Bungalows are the nicest I’d stayed in in years, huge and tastefully decorated. I meant to stay for three nights and was still there two weeks later.”
