We stayed here 2 nights in August. We needed to go to Sihanoukville but we hate crowds and loud areas. We didn't want to be amongst the backpapers partying all night. If you stay anywhere near Serendipity beach that is all you will get. This place is awesome! It is isolated on a hill and tuk tuk drivers have a hard time getting there so get a taxi if possible. It is a 10 min drive to seredipity so bit of a hassle if you really want to be at the beach. We didn't so it was perfect.
We made a reservation and arrived by Bus from Phnom Penh (6$ but took 5-6 hours when taxi is about 3.5 hours and 50USD). We arrived at the bus yard and surrounded by tuk tuk drivers that wanted to charge us 6USD to get to the hotel. (Most don't know the hotel so you ask to be taken to the Wat Leu the temple next door). However, the after a few minutes the driver from the hotel came to the bus with a sign with our name on it. It was a free pick-up and we didn't even know! (we had arranged hotel through another hotel in Phnom Penh so they must have told them what bus we were on- EXCELLENT)
Food is reasonably priced and relaxing atmosphere. Wifi and Breakfast ( from a set menu with eggs to pancakes to local food) is included in priced. Off season price is 45USD. Pool is an infinity pool overlooking the seaport. Bungalows are small but nice. Have AC and mosquito nets. If you have a hard time with stairs getting to the bungalows may be an issue especially when rainy and wet. Not far just need to be able to climb 2 -3 small flights. These bungalows are in nature so if you don't like bugs or are afraid of them this place won't make you happy.
The front staff are aplenty- almost too many. English is limited except for a few staff. But very helpful and extremely polite. Almost too polite as our car was ready but we were talking with other guests killing time waiting for the car but they didn't want to interrupt our conversation to let us know the car was ready. It was sweet how polite they are.
They can arrange local tours or travel, taxis etc at the front desk.
All in all a great stay!
Coconut/pumpkin soup is a MUST try!!
