Villa Romonea, Cambodia Retro Villa with Driving Range in Kep

[08/11/11] 

Villa Romonea is located in Kep, Cambodia, and has all sorts of cool features including a six hole golf driving range. How many times have you wanted to smack a few balls after a couple of drinks? It's the type of lifestyle that makes us love the Entourage boys but curse our luck. We watch them living the dream while we’re stuck on a grey sofa with dirty laundry to do.

Not so with Villa Romonea which is within our grasp. The house can sleep up to 12 guests for US$900 – 1,600/day depending on the season. That price includes breakfast and as you can tell from the snaps, it’s a majestic house. Built by ‘a cosmopolitan Khmer family’ in 1968, the villa is set on five acres of grounds and features an 18 metre salt water swimming pool. Which is cool but a bit annoying. Who likes salt water anyway?

There’s a kid’s pool if you want to banish the infants and there’s also a private tennis court but the best part is the 6-hole golf driving range. By 'driving range' it’s actually more of a 6-hole pitch and putt with six different greens spread over a 175-metre fairway and it's very cool indeed. A full-time chef is also available on request and if you want to banish yourself from the infants there’s plenty to do in the surrounding area such as sailing and 4WD trips. If we're honest though it would be a waste to go with children - this is one for the boys.

Live like the Romans.
