“The best in Sihanoukville”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

I was dropped over there by the tuk tuk driver and I usually get very suspicious about it and I tend to go see other places. So I did again at this time just to prove that Otres Orchid was by far the best one of those in Otres. (and later I found out that was the best compared to the whole Sihanoukville).

The bungalows are nicely build, with the details taken care of. Lil flowers hanging right after the terrace with chairs and a hammock. Good internet, when it works. Sometimes its just out. Bathroom with hot water, very confy mattress, spotless linens and cuddly pillow.

Its lovely to wake up and see the sunlight coming in between the bamboos (aka, the walls).

It was a bit pricey (usd 10 for low season) for Cambodia standards for cheap backpackers, but I ended up staying 3 nights.

Otres is far away from the main Sihanoukville and its true that in low season is totally dead. But its still the best place to relax.

Otres was a lovely place just back from the beach. There are a lot of dingy looking bungalows along the beach (there was one at the end that looked amazing!) and this one was a great find. The owner is still working on the landscape, but you can see what he is trying to achieve. It is a little piece of relaxing! It was good to have an en-suite and the mosquito net. Lovely place to visit. Owner was very helpful and friendly.

It is out of the way from the main beaches of Sihanoukille (Otres beach is about a 5 minute tuk tuk ride in to town and the main beaches). I'd recommend staying in this area during the high season, but during the low season, there is no reason not to stay on the main beaches. However after the madness and intensity of Cambodia if you are wanting some R&R, then this place is it.

After walking up the beach and deciding none of the dingy places there looked that appealing we found Orchid. It's a new place, so they're still doing some landscaping on the property, but the bungalows are great. They're clean, the beds are comfy, the water is hot, and each has a nice porch with hammock to hang out on. The staff are really friendly and helpful too. We loved staying here and wish we could have stayed longer. I expect the next time we come through, the prices will have gone up, once word gets out.

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!!!

A great hotel to stay at! Hot water and the huts are very fun! Ocean's close by, and the place has an awesome vibe. Very cheap pricing, it's definitely a different experience!

We came to Otres in January when Mr. Sane was just setting up the place. The huts had hot water, fans, mosquito nets, comfortable beds, and en suite. I spent some time talking to him - he has big plans for Otres Orchid (he decided on the name whilst we were there - it was unnamed up to that point!). In the next year or so he will be putting in water features, an organic vegetable garden, mango trees, and other attractions. He clearly knows exactly how he wants the place to look, and doesn't want it to be a typical "backpacker" destination - keeping it traditional will make it stand out from other accommodation on the road, and at $16 a night, it was an absolute steal. With the beach 15 seconds across the road, you simply cannot complain about Otres Orchid at all - we came for a few days to Sihanoukville and ended up staying for 2 weeks, 1 of which was here. Fantastic. Full details here: http://blog.robkershaw.com/2012/01/day-105-108-sihanoukville-recovery.html

I just wanted to share my experience at Otres Orchid Beach Resort. What an amazing, unique experience!! I've never stayed at an authentic Cambodian beach huts before, and DEFINITELY not my last time. The bamboo houses had running hot water and toilets. The hospitality was absolutely phenominal. The employees there was very friendly and helpful. The beach is definitely the best beaches i've been too as well. If you have the luxury to come to this part of Cambodia, I would definitely recommend staying here. There is no better place to stay!!!
Thank you for taking care of our group while we were there.

Room Tip: No complaints about the room. I've never stayed at a place with Mosquito nets, but the nets real...
