“Heavenly experience at Above Us Only Sky! :)”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I initially expected to stay just 4 nights in Sihanoukville after an awful night in a different hotel on my first night there. The next day I had a stroll down to the quiet end of Serendipity Beach, and had a drink at AUOS. I found the staff so friendly, welcoming, amusing, and such great fun I decided to book a week in one of their four private bungalows over looking the beach. The uninterrupted views from the balcony were beautiful, such a joy to wake up to. The bungalows themselves were just delightful, and clearly built by local, skilled craftsmen, using natural materials. Very comfortable, with all the mod cons, all with stunning sea views, and just a stones throw from their bar. I ended up staying at AUOS for 29 days in the end, and have made life long friends with Marry, Toni, and of course the cheeky, but highly entertaining Ben. Cannot recommend highly enough! Returning in November!!

We were supposed to stay here for 3 nights. We stayed for a regrettable 1 night.

The first night, there was no electricity. I can't blame the hotel for a lack of electricity. Thankfully, their neighbors at The Cove had a room available.

Finally, we got to move into the room the next day. It had electricity, but no A/C. Again, I can't blame them for that. So now, we were very reliant on the lone fan in the room. The lone, old fan's cord was severed at the end. The owner was able to get prongs installed quickly. However, for some reason, the old fan was BEEPING ALL NIGHT. We couldn't sleep, so we had to turn it off. When I told the owner this the next day, he acted like we were imagining things. We were insulted. Also, the ROOF LEAKED. No fan, no A/C, and a leaking roof.

After having a terrible night in a room without A/C, a beeping fan, quite a few bugs in the room, a leaking roof, and the noise from the neighboring clubs, we decided to leave early. It was easily our WORST NIGHT IN CAMBODIA. When we checked out, the owner wanted to give us a discount of $5. $5?! The only reason we chose the place over The Cove, was the A/C. And we didn't have any! The same room at The Cove was $20 cheaper (and that includes free breakfast). And on top of that, we could barely sleep because of the fan and the dripping water on our heads. We shouldn't have paid any money at all. I considered the $15 I gave him as a donation. We certainly didn't pay for a capable hotel.

The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because the view is pretty nice from the bungalow. But you can expect a long walk or tuk-tuk ride to a swim-able beach. If you really want to stay here, go to The Cove.

Pro:
Beautiful View

Cons:
Noisy fan (could be a special case)
Leaky roof
Noisy neighbors
An owner who seems to be more interested in hanging out with friends at a bar rather than running a competent hotel
Bugs in the room
Not a good value at all
Very slow response to a very serious problem (no electricity)

This is our second stay and we love it.The staff are all friendly and helpful. We love the light and airy room. A timber frame comfortable bed with a mozzie net and fan or air conditioning is by the window and you can look out over the sea while laying in bed.The bathroom is very clean and sports a large mirror with a fluoro light so we can actually see! The verandah is great for an afternoon chill out before heading to the bar where you can get a great cocktail and a laugh.
We will definately be back.

If I could have given this place a minus score then I would have. No electricity at all the whole night and as the shower requires electricity to work: no shower either. Staff did not offer torch, discount or anything really. No surprises when looking at the recent log of guests that nobody stayed more than one night. Electricity was not an issue for the place next door that had music blaring until 3am. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else...

Thankyou for your honest response, however upon your arrival after the electrical storm you were told there was only a 50/50 chance of the power returning because we were having the junction box re installed and re wired.. You were offered a discount immediatley and you were adamant you wanted to stay. You were offered a torch later that evening and you you were happy to stay and use the room and the faciclities all day and night and then LEAVE WITHOUT PAYING after the bar closed can only be regarded as nothing short of theft.

Above Us Only Sky Bungalows are an excellent place to stay whilst in Sihanoukville. The bungalows are spacious and very clean. There is also the added bonus of a private balcony complete with satellite chairs and a beautiful view over the beach. Rooms come with air conditioning and mosquito net around the bed. The bar is only a few steps away for when you are in need of refreshment, and you can also order food from a nearby restaurant the staff are only too happy to order for you. Ben and the other staff are very helpful with any questions you might have. The bungalows are by far the nicest on the beach, close to the Serendipity Beach Nightlife and Restaurants. We definitely recommend staying at AUOS.

We had been recommended to go to "All Above Only Sky" by family who had already been there twice. Expectations were high and as we drove in from Sihanoukville airport with the bus and after being dropped of walking down Serendipity Street, we had our doubts. Despite bad rain the warmth and cosy atmosphere that met us at "All Above Us Only Sky", the personal touch, the fabulous view, the newly renovated and very clean rooms felt like a small oasis to us. All in all we spent 5 nights there and despite the rainy weather we had a fantastic time.

Room Tip: All Above Us Only Sky has only four chalets. We had Chalet nr 1, with 1 double and 1 single built up...
