Prepare to stay longer than intended
What we say:
Opened in December 2010, Monkey Island is the work of Sihanoukville's Monkey Republic and attracts a similar, youngish crowd. Nineteen bungalows are scattered on and behind a picture-perfect white sand beach. The bungalows are made to a high standard — the walls are made in a traditional method using layers of thatch that are more aesthetically pleasing than the plain wood seen elsewhere. Each bungalow has a double bed and a single or two double beds with mosquito nets and a private balcony with table and chair and a hammock. A generator runs from dusk to 11ish nightly. Monkey Island's big shady bar and restaurant looking out to sea is a social hub — it was designed for socialising and they've even got a few bartenders with fire-spinning skills to keep the party lively. The restaurant serves a variety of delicious Western and Khmer dishes but their Thai food is truly exceptional, especially given the remoteness of the island. Food and drink prices are quite low — drinks are at the same prices you'll find on the mainland. Staff are very friendly and professional. Snorkelling gear is available to rent for $2.50.
