Sun Island ECO Village
Camp it up!
What we say:
Sun Island ECO Village's main attraction is its beach tents with unbeatable views. More glamping than roughing it, the two-room tents are pitched under a grass roof with a yellow and green stripy tarpaulin which is practical for extra sun and rain protection though aesthetically somewhat detracts from what is otherwise a rather classy tent setup. The tents have a living area with a rug, sofas and a table and the bedroom has a mattress on a pallet, fan and lamp. The tents sleep two comfortably, or four people who know each other well. The private bathroom is housed in a clean, tiled shed next door, and 24-hour electricity is provided by solar panels outside each tent – a big plus. Just off the beach by a small lagoon are four thatched glass-window bungalows (not that our windows shut properly) with shared toilets and wet shower rooms; basic but also one of the cheapest private bungalows on Cambodia's islands. They're kitted out with a wicker clothes rail, mirror and chair -- ours also came with plenty of geckos. We negotiated and paid $15 in low season, less than their $20 advertised price. The newest addition to Sun Island are their glass-fronted bungalows made of sturdier stuff and painted a salmon pink. With private, tiled verandas boasting ample seating, these are significantly more comfortable, and dearer, than their primitive thatch options; inside they boast fresh white painted walls and tiled wet bathrooms. While we liked them, for a similar priced bungalow we prefer the likes of Saracen Bay Resort. More were being constructed at the time of our visit. Sun Island's sea-blue wooden restaurant serves Asian and Western food, including salads, pizzas and big German breakfasts, which will fill you up for a busy day of relaxing, though the food is expensive here.
