We found this place by chance after moving from Papa Pippo bungalows due to the poor standards there! We had walked the length of Serendipity and Ochheuteal beach but had dismissed all of the bungalows and guesthouses that we had viewed either because of their lack of cleanliness or because of the near by disco bar noise and the number of hawkers in this area was over whelming.
We wanted to stay on Otres beach, but also wanted a bungalow with en-suite. We hadn’t really noticed the Otres Orchid bungalows when we first arrived at Otres beach as we had only been looking for places on the beach itself and this new development is 20metres back from the sea behind The Beach Chalet Restaurant.
But when we took a closer look at what was on offer, we realised that we’d over looked a gem!
The detached traditional khmer style bamboo bungalows built around a central bar/reception area were exactly what we were looking for. A front balcony with table chairs and a hammock was great for relaxing at the end of the day, before retiring to the bedroom area with a huge double bed complete with a new mosquito net, theres also an electric blue light bug zapper for added protection! a wardrobe with full length mirror a fan and with six power point sockets in the room more than enough to keep those power hungry laptops and gadgets feed, and strong Wi-Fi signal in all areas.
The en-suite bathroom is fully tiled with an electric hot shower and western style flush toilet. Clean towels and bed linen are provided each day or when needed.
The staff are very helpful even calling to confirm our flight reservations for us.
All this for $15 a night ! Great value !
Otres Orchid wasn’t quiet finished when we stayed as there are plans to build a restaurant and a shop, the shop will be particularly convenient as Otres beach is 5km from Sihanoukville town and a tuk-tuk will charge an average of $8 return.
When Otres Orchid is completed it will be Perfect!!!
