Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
On an island a sense of busyness is relative, but for a range of accommodation and night life Koh Touch village and beach on the southeastern side of Koh Rong is the best choice. It attracts predominantly a young backpacker crowd looking for fun and has garnered Koh Rong the reputation of being a party island, even though all the other bays on the island are far from rowdy. There’s power until 02:00 to keep the music playing while one bar has a generator to keep it pumping till the wee hours. From homestays and cheap dorm beds to treehouses and solar powered bungalows with breathtaking views, the biggest selection is here and caters best to budget travellers.

Sok San village
Sok San village at the end of gorgeous Seven-kilometre beach has a small handful of beach bungalow options to choose from – a bunch of new bungalows sprung up in 2014. The village behind is tiny and well kept, with a small grocery stall and beachside pool tables, but very little else in the way of entertainment. There's a small waterfall reachable by walking across a swamp for which you'll need someone to show you the way.

Northeast Koh Rong
This area is well away from the crowds, but a great hangout nevertheless. Other than a small collection of local dwellings and the exclusive resort in the bay, there's not much around. This is definitely the place for relaxation and peace, but you can trek to Sok San village if you want to make sure other people exist.
