Vagabond Temple is situated within a tranquil and lush space on top of a hill, surrounded by flowers, ponds, exotic fruit trees and plants including papaya, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, jackfruit, pepper and more. Set near Kep National Park’s beautiful mountains, and overlooking the sea, our retreat centre is a haven of peace and quiet. All accommodation facilities in the retreat centre are traditional Khmer straw and wooden bungalows nestled within our spacious gardens and range from shared to private and basic to premium.
Our Prana Lounge is the heart of the temple grounds, a central community gathering space where we invite you to share meals, socialize with other guests, or cozy up in a hammock with a book from our spiritual library. Classes are held in a spacious, open-door yoga shala that is an extension of the surrounding nature. Guests can enjoy access to free wifi and laundry facilities (at an additional cost) during their stay. During free time, guests can enjoy exploring nearby villages or relax at the beach which is only a 5 minute drive from the centre (15 minute walk).
Our most upgraded option, the Premium Bungalow is fully decorated with elaborate wooden carvings, a big closet, a private bathroom and a large balcony overlooking 180 degrees of the ocean. This spacious, isolated room provides the guest the serene, peaceful experience that comes with being fully immersed in nature. There is mild uphill walking to reach these accommodations.
Our Standard Shared Bungalow is an elevated option that comes with a balcony, attached bathroom, and is located in the heart of the the center, just in between the yoga hall and the Prana Lounge. Fitted with two double beds.
For individuals or a couple who seek privacy, space, and attached bathroom facilities, we have our Standard Private Bungalow. With each having its own balcony, guests can take time to relax and enjoy the scenery. Equipped with one double bed.
Emerging from the treetops are our two Standard Treetop Bungalows, both offering stunning views from their respective balconies overlooking the trees and sea. Both host double beds, ideal for one person or a couple. The two rooms share a bathroom at bottom of their connecting stairs. While the view is well worth the effort, keep in mind this selection requires some climbing of stairs.
Located up the mountain from the Prana Lounge, Standard Top Hill Bungalows are equipped with double beds, attached bathrooms, plenty of space, and balconies to enjoy their view overlooking the retreat center. There is mild uphill walking to reach these accommodations.
The most affordable and basic option, our Basic Outdoor Dorm is a simple mixed-gender room with 3-4 single beds, and is located close to the yoga hall. Bathroom facilities are located right outside.
