Sok San Beach Resort Review – Koh Rong paradise

Have you ever dreamed of the perfect vacation? I do this all the time and for me the perfect place to escape the city is an island with white beaches and palm trees. This is exactly what Koh Rong is: a Cambodian paradise not yet touched by mass tourism. Situated in the Gulf of Thailand, with a surface of 78 square km, Koh Rong has it all: party beaches and secluded beaches. If you want to party, then definitely Koh Touch and Police Beach are for you. However, if you are looking for a place a bit more secluded, then I definitely recommend the Sok San Beach Resort.

Sok San Beach Resort is situated on the Western side of Koh Rong. A fact that few people know about this amazing place is that on this beach 2 seasons of Survivor were filmed. Initially, the Sok San Beach Resort was built for the filming crew of the show. As a Survivor fan, it was interesting to see some of the constructions used as part of the competitions in the TV show.

With many room types to choose from, Sok San Beach Resort is suitable for both families and couples. If you are a big family, you can opt for a Villa with Sea View. However, if you are looking for the perfect place for couples I definitely recommend the Deluxe Loft (our choice).

1. Sok San Beach Resort Deluxe Loft rooms

What I loved the most about our room was the fact that it was really spacious and beautifully decorated. I also loved all the different areas designed for work, relaxation and sleep.

We had two fully equipped private bathrooms, our own kitchen (water boiler, coffee, tea, sugar) and a terrace. The room had air conditioning, TV and of course, free WiFi.

The fact that the beach was right in front of our room was just perfect because my mornings always started with a quick swim in the turquoise water.

2. Sok San Beach Resort restaurant and menu

The Sok San Beach Resort restaurant, La Terrasse, is situated right on the edge of the beach. This means that you will enjoy an amazing view over the sea while indulging yourself in the carefully prepared dishes. The restaurant offers a wide range of both Khmer and Western meals.

The Sok San Beach Resort menu has many delicious options. From spring rolls to sandwiches, pasta, pizza, fish, Pad Thai or Khemer dishes. Everything looks yum! I found the prices affordable, ranging from 4$ to 15$.

Arrange your own transport

The second option to get to Sok San Beach Resort is to arrange your own transport and change two boats. You can take the first boat from Sihanokville to Koh Touch in Koh Rong (11$) and then take the second boat from Koh Touch to Sok San Beach (8$). Although this option is a bit cheaper, it takes about 3 hours for the whole journey, depending on the boats’ schedules.
