The SpaceOriginally and primarily, we are a conservation project that receives groups of volunteers for four months of year. We first opened our doors to guest in March 2015, to keep the staff on all year round providing valuable income for several families in the village.
In turn this allows, you, the more adventurous traveler to experience true island culture in a Cambodian village untouched by tourism.
We have traditional bucket showers, no mains power (we have a generator that runs from 6pm-11pm) and no wifi is available. It’s a true back to basic experience. Guest AccessThere is shared access to the bar and restaurant. Our bar, which is open till 11pm, stocks a range of beers, soft drinks, spirits and cockatails. Our restaurant offers a western-inspired menu. We only have a couple of simple Khmer dishes on our menu as we encourage all our guests to support the local community by sampling traditional food at villagers’ homes. Interaction with GuestsThere's always someone available to show you round the village and assist you. They can also help arrange a wide range of activities available from scuba diving and jungle treks to relaxing on the beautiful beach 10 minutes walk away. Other Things to NoteWe have traditional bucket showers, no mains power (we have a generator that runs from 6pm-11pm) and no wifi is available. It’s a true back to basic experience.
Plus we’re not the easiest place to find however, that’s just part of the appeal.
You can take a direct boat from Sihanoukville. It leaves Pier 52, Sihanoukville port, (‘Pi Hap pee’ in Khmer) at approx 3pm. Please don’t buy a ticket in advance; it’s just $5 on the boat. The return ferry leaves at 8am. If you need a tuk tuk we highly recommend Mr Nee as he will ensure you take the correct boat. Just let us know where you are arriving/staying in Sihanoukville and we can arrange for him to pick you up.
If you’re already on Koh Rong and looking for something different, speak to a local boat captain about transfers to the Sangkat village or contact is and we can arrange for a very experienced moto driver to pick you up.
Alternatively, if you’re feeling fit there’s a 1.5-2 hour trek from the tourist side. The trail starts behind the back of Monkey Island, just ask any of their staff to point you in the direction of the road.
