“Lazy Beach, Koh Rong Saloem Island, Cambodia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2009

Wow - If you are in South Cambodia and are planning some time in Sihouankville, do yourself a favour and spend a couple of nights at Lazy Beach on Koh Rong Saloem Island.

This Island beach resort is located about 2 hours from shore (they will take you in their own boat) on a quiet island with about a mile of white sandy beach-front and only 10 bungalows just steps from the beach.

The bungalows are newer, clean and have attached bathroom/showers. Each bungalow has 2 large beds, so you can easily sleep 4 people in each one. Electricity comes on at dusk and stay on very late. The cost per bungalow was only $25.00 USD per night - well worth the price.

In addition to a magnificent beach at your doorstep, Lazy Beach has probably the best food I ate during my entire stay in Cambodia. The kitchen-staff make incredible foods such as their curries that I just couldn't get enough of. You would think that being the only bar/restaurant on the beach, that the owners would jack up the prices because their guests have no other choice of places to eat/drink - but I found it just the opposite. The prices are about the same as the mainland and again - the food will make you want to book additional nights (which I did).

The owners (2 British Lads) are very friendly and welcoming and are hands-on owners. They live/work at Lazy Beach and go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable. When I was there, they offered to take guest to the other side of the island for a free snorkeling tour.

I cannot say enough about Lazy Beach. If you are looking for a quiet/romantic/peaceful getaway and are tired of the noise and abundance of people at the beaches in Sihouankville, book a few nights at one the world’s last untouched beaches.

Oh - and plan on spending most of your time in your own private hammock located conveniently on your front porch.

“Great trip experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2008

We visited Angkor in a day trip on a vacation we spent mostly in Thailand. We booked our transportation in Siem Reap with a local young taxi driver called Sun Same (sunsame99@gmail.com) who was recommended by a Trip Advisor member. We made a good decision by picking Sun. Sun was very helpful and friendly. He speaks english, which was a plus and knew the area very well. Sun scheduled the whole trip to the temples Angkor Wat, Bayon, ect. The most enjoyable part of the trip was the unforgettable visit to the Floating Village in the Tonle Sap lake, something you don't want to miss.
The cambodian people are very friendly. We regretted only spending one day there. We stayed at Le Meridien Angkor which was a very good value for a 4-star hotel. The food was very good, great accomodations and service. We traveled from Bangkok on Bangkok Airways. Once you arrive in Siem Reap you pay US$20 for the visa. There is an ATM right at the inmigration in case you don't bring cash. In general Siem Reap is a must if your vacation takes you to Thailand or any nearby Southeast Asian country.
