The pristine tropical islands off Sihanoukville on the south coast are the place to head if you are after some quality beach time and we’ve hunted down the best beach hotels in Cambodia. We recommend avoiding the mainland which has seen a lot of development in recent years and get straight down to the islands, which are still relatively undiscovered.
Accommodation is limited on the beautiful islands, but that’s partly what makes it so charming. We adore the rustic, beautiful islands of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem (especially the latter, which is quieter, less developed and feels like a desert island) but accommodation is relatively basic and there is no medical services on the islands.
On another scale is the private island of Song Saa, which offers unparalleled opulence and beauty. It is one of the most luxurious spots in all of Asia and all villas boast private pools, fabulous food and top-notch facilities. It is like a little slice of Paradise.
