The Royal Sands Koh Rong, Koh Rong
- Amazing watersports
- Chilled-out bar and restaurant
On the tropical island of Koh Rong, in Cambodia’s Sihanoukville province, you’ll find the high-end beach resort of The Royal Sands. You’re guaranteed a pampering stay at this luxurious hotel, with its tasteful décor and personable service. The guestrooms are spectacular, with indulgent touches like mini wine cellars, outdoor daybeds and al fresco showers. Upgrade your room if you fancy the sound of a private pool, an enormous bathroom and direct access to the beach.
If you like your beaches sun-bleached, powdery, and lapped with turquoise ocean, Koh Rong beach is phenomenal. Although our favourite spot to enjoy the view is from the infinity pool, horizontal on one of the world’s comfiest sunloungers with an obliging waiter pressing a tropical cocktail into our hand. But it won’t be long till that azure water tempts you closer, then your most difficult decision of the day will be whether you choose to snorkel, kayak or sail.
The Chill Beach Bar and Grill is a relaxed affair, serving up barbecued seafood alongside Asian and Western favourites. Chilled beers and wines and a choice of refreshing cocktails will have you hanging out in a cosy pod all evening long, listening to those waves. Aaaaahhhh...
The beach here is easily one of Cambodia's most beautiful, though you might find it hard to drag yourself away from the comfy beds in the luxurious villas.
