It is because there is energy required to break bonds between water molecules. The hydrogen bonds in water are strong so it takes a lot of energy, therefore more energy is stored in gas at the same temperature than at liquid.
Because the molecules of water are held together by hydrogen bonding, it takes a large amount of energy to break those bonds and change its phase; this energy is reflected in the gas phase with its high kinetic energy
