Koh Thmei Resort
Bungalows in a natural wonderland
What we say:
Resort is probably a bit of an overstatement for the place, but Koh Thmei Resort is certainly a relaxing place to spend a few days. It opened in December 2010 and bungalows are brand new, with walls of wood and tin roofs covered by thatch for aesthetics. Although the bungalows are too close together, each one has its own balcony hung with seashells and two hammocks, and all visitors are given a jug of fresh drinking water to keep in the bungalow. Books, games, a foosball table, snorkelling gear and a surfboard are all free to guests and a kayak can be rented by the hour. Power is available around the clock — during the day thanks to solar panels and at night from a generator. The resort is on a lovely yellow sand beach covered with seashells and pine trees. Although not easily accessible by foot, a nicer beach reachable by boat is further down the island. Run by a German couple who recently arrived in Cambodia, the resort has a few kinks to work out. For one, they haven't organised a daily boat trip to and from the mainland, meaning that all visitors have to hire a $20 taxi and then a $15 boat individually. The food also leaves something to be desired. The menu is predominantly Khmer and the portions are both pricy and small, even taking into account the distance from the mainland. That said, the staff is friendly, the island is beautiful and they have draft beer which is more than you can say for most other island accommodation.
