A Taste of Kep-sur-Mer at La Maison de Domi

Known as kep-sur-mer when it hosted French colonists and Khmer elites in the early 20th century, the breezy seaside retreat of Kep was the equivalent of Saint Tropez on the Cambodian Riviera. While most of its stylish summer villas are gone, the spirit of Indochine lives on at La Maison de Domi.

Built in 2012 by Philippe and Dominique Serene on 5,720 sqm of beautifully forested land backed by Kep National Park and overlooking the Bay of Kep, La Maison de Domi is a throwback to the effortlessly elegant days of yesteryear.

The main house has four spacious bedrooms with a fully-equipped kitchen and large living room while a stand-alone studio houses a fifth bedroom. There are period-inspired furnishings throughout with generous use of wood in the design offering a glimpse of life during Cambodia’s Golden Age.

Less than 10 minutes from Kep’s famed Crab Market and town beach, La Maison de Domi makes an excellent base from which to explore the Kep countryside with its pepper plantations and salt fields.

The nearby town of Kampot is just a 30-minute drive away, and makes for an excellent day trip with its quiet riverfront and many colonial-era buildings. Alternatively, while away the day at La Maison de Domi looking out over the sea from the expansive 140 sqm veranda or working on your tan by the swimming pool.

La Maison de Domi comfortably accommodates 10-15 guests and is available for rent at USD 350 (green season from May-October with the exception of certain weekends) or USD440 (high season), including breakfast. There is also the possibility of renting individual rooms. For more, email: [email protected]
