Stayed for 11 days in 3 different bungalow types: family at the beach, beachfront and jungle. Beachfront, no 1 and 13 were my favorite. I think some of the more negative reviews are a result, that they didn’t read the description properly in advance. If you read the hotel description and are ok with the level of comfort at palm beach you will not be disappointed!

WHAT YOU WON‘T HAVE: WiFi in rooms, warm water, ac, minibar.
WHAT YOU WILL HAVE: great hospitality and a relaxed and peaceful stay, long stretched beaches, a paradise in front of your doorstep, diving, kayaking, great seafood, decent cocktails, friendly staff, a great time AND amazing Instagram photos;-)

ROOMS:
If you want to to have a direct sea view, try to get „BEACHFRONT BUNGALOW“ No. 1 or 13 or ANY of the „DELUXE JUNGLE BUNGALOWS“. Note: there is also the category: „Jungle Bungalow“ (without DELUXE) they are built the same as the deluxe ones, still with ocean view but also a view at a „dead“ swimmingpool. (Owner took it over like that, huge thing, impossible to maintain) This isn’t the end of the world because right across the pool is still the ocean, you just need to focus your eyes a little more up, et voila: problem solved;-)
The JUNGLE Bungalows are a bit more solid and not as open as the others.

The bungalows which are named „AT THE BEACH“ (family + standard) don’t have seaview and are from my point of view a little less comfy though very similar to the beachfront bungalows. The „6 BEDS HOUSES“ have direct seaview.

Book a snorkeling or diving trip with Craig, he is my favorite (don’t tell the others;-) the resort is a little isolated so you will have a very cozy and almost family like atmosphere BUT nothing to do outside the resort in the evening. I stayed for 11 nights and did not get bored!!! But you should know it...there won’t be a fullmoon Party close by. ;-) but you still can get wasted at the bar;-) Also, it’s an island with a 2 Hour Ferry Drive from main land, so stock up on items you might need. At the hotel and the hotel pier you will get basics like cigarettes, toiletries and snacks.

Hotel has a ferry which runs at 1pm from Sihanoukville (ROYAL PIER) directly to the resort. And one at 9am from the resort back to Sihanoukville —>NOTE: “Royal Pier” is next to the container pier and it is in the north of Sihanoukville, you will get an email after booking with location gps and information about the ferry. You don’t have to book a ferry just use the one of the hotel, it costs almost the same as any other one and is operated by the hotel! So it is a smooth ride to where you want to go;-) The ferries from the main pier will NOT bring you close to palm beach.

Palm beach is a 100% recommendation. Go, relax and be kind.

We stayed for 3 nights. Here are the positives- room was clean, spacious, and exactly what a beach bungalow should be: including front porch hammock and a small table and chairs to enjoy your morning coffee. The food at the restaraunt was good and not overpriced.

We did the 1 hour walk to lonely beach and it was the highlight of our trip to Koh Rong. So gorgeous!! Don’t miss it.

The negatives- Our room was advertised as “beach front” and we had expected to be able to hear the ocean from our room. The bungalow was actually 5 back from the water so while we had a nice view we did expect to be closer to the water. The restaurant is the only food option and they charged $.50 for a cup of hot water which seems a bit much. Could have used a little mor love from the staff as well. There were several times I popped over to get hot water for my coffee and it really seemed as though I was as inconvenience. Guests should never feel this way.

A few small tweaks and this would earn a 5th star from us. Overall worth the trip and we had a really nice time.

It’s an amazing, beautiful location. They created a piece of tranquil paradise. If you are not the kind of person that lies on the beach the whole day, don’t worry! There are plenty activities you can do for almost no cost. But lying on the beach for a whole day is also entirely possible!

The owners and people who work there are friendly and will do their best that you come nothing short (within reason). They are involved with the locals, training and employing them in a sensible manner. We really liked the variety of the people working there and the great talks with had with each of them
They also didn’t mind me plundering their first aid kit, so i could take care of my girlfriend. Instead, they kept it refilled and up to date.


The bungalows might be basic, but they are clean and private. There was a wide selection of food with good portions and many tasty drinks! Our favourite was the Barracuda steak!

Keep in mind that this is a remote location, so try to inform yourself. If you read the information on their website and the email they send you, you wont get any big surprises. They manage to keep a great, balanced resort so I think anybody can find what they are looking for (except a rave party). This isn’t a cheap backpackers haven, but we (a greedy, backpacking couple) felt that we got more than our money’s worth.

Shout out to Raymond and Craig! The plankton kings! We spend some time with each of them and they are funny, knowledgeable persons who gave us unforgettable memories. We are very grateful to have met you!

First before anything else, i must say ...So good to be in a place without shops, without anyone trying to sell you something !

About the resort, i think is quite nice, not the "fancy" type, but cozy and with people available to feel you confortable and having a good time there. You must remenber that this is a remote place, not a city, or a resort in some kinda of urbanized area.
I liked the bungalows, and recomend beach front bungalow, nº1 :-)
The restaurant is nice and the food and drinks are very affordable and tasty.
About the staff... all the Cambodian were lovely and available to help, and for sure, Roy in the "back office - Internet " is a very reliable and suportive person that won´t let you without help or question without answer. And last but first in our heart is the lovely and very professional Craig Fortune... Dive Master, Barman, and expecially, public relations :-) ...always with time to seat a little and interact, have some chat with guests. And if you Dive as me, you will love to kwow that you could dive in some Greg "secret spot "... Nice, very nice !
For sure i recomend Palm Beach, and for sure i will be back one day !
