Palm Beach Resort

Opposite the exclusive Song Saa resort, Palm Beach had us almost feeling sorry for the rich and famous.

And while this little piece of paradise doesn't come with its own butler, South African owner Kevin does his best to make guests feel welcome. Approaching the beach down a long jetty, over clear aquamarine water and rocks, it's difficult not to feel that you must have done something very good in a former life. The carefully made varnished wooden bungalows are arranged around a sandy volleyball court. Hammocks are slung in the shade underneath the eponymous tall palm trees, and for more active guests, kayaks and tubes are available to rent. The shady restaurant bar is reasonably priced and there's a beach barbecue every night, also popular with visiting ecologists from a nearby project. The resort runs its own slow ferry directly to and from Sihanoukville, which is arranged when you book. Mobile phone reception and 3G wireless are available. The only downsides are that the beach at the front is pretty tiny – walk around the side of the resort though and there are other attractive stretches. A Khmer-run place was under construction next door as of November 2014, meaning it likely won't be as peaceful as it once was when it's fully operational.
