Kep West is committed to promoting art and architecture, with plans to build a coral statue on the beach that will act as a protector of the oceans, attract tourists, and promote Kep as a cultural and architectural coastal destination.
The grand opening of Kep West was presided over by His Excellency Deputy Prime Minister Chea Sophara, Minister of Land Management, Urban Planning, and Construction, and chairman of the national committee for coastal management. What started as the Knai Bang Chatt BeachFront Model project is now a symbol of Kep as a tourism site for relaxation and sea-based sports.
Jozef J.L. Moons, who started the Knai Bang Chatt Resort in Kep in 2005, is looking to restore Kep to its former glory as a popular destination for secluded and romantic high-end seaside getaways, ideal for weddings, yearly events, corporate events, product launches, and sport events. The Kep Gardens, inspired by the Cuban sculpture Yoan Capote’s “Open Mind,” will be a new identity for Kep, according to Mr. Moons. He hopes to encourage Cambodia’s growing domestic tourism and sees the potential for growth in international tourism, especially with the upcoming sea games in May of this year.
