Tamu Eat & Sleep Otres

Chic paradise

What we say: 4 stars

Chic paradise is the best way to describe two-storey, white Tamu, the only boutique hotel on Sihanoukville’s Otres Two. In a league of its own compared with its neighbours, somehow they have melded a laidback beach vibe with the luxury of a high-end hotel.


Welcome to Tamu.

Reception and other areas of the hotel are filled with sand so white and fine you’d believe it’s been shipped in from one of the best beaches in the world. The whole hotel is a spotlessly clean white and the low-rise buildings mean it doesn’t detract from the semi-deserted feel that makes Otres Beach so attractive.

If you’re like most guests you’ll enter the hotel from the rear and encounter an elegant pool surrounded by a beautifully built wooden deck scattered with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Most of the rooms are set around the pool area so guests can step out of their room and dive into the pool if they so choose. A few additional rooms are built above the reception and lounge areas and these offer spectacular views of the islands just offshore.

Nothing like an outside shower to give you the feeling of freedom

Outdoor shower, naturellement.

The rooms are minimalistic yet comfy with plush beds, clean white linens and a small sofa. The floor is a light grey polished concrete that adds to the modern ambiance and rooms have private outdoor shower areas. A small minibar, drinking water, coffee and tea-making facilities, in-room safe and WiFi round out the offerings. They also offer adjoining rooms in case you are travelling with family and want to keep the whole area open.

The hotel’s on-site restaurant lies across the road from the rooms, sitting right on the beach and the included breakfast is served here.

The French owners live on-site and stay on top of everything. Prices are on par with Sokha, the only five-star resort in Sihanoukville, but Tamu offers a more special experience and is set in a much more remote area. With rooms going for $100 to $140 per night — more cash gets your more space, with similar amenities — Tamu is not for the budget minded or backpackers, but consider the quality and style on offer, it’s great value.

I could spend my days lounging here

Yes, we could spend our days lounging here if we had to.

In its first year of opening, Tamu is very popular with older French travellers, families, and couples looking for a romantic retreat. Despite the price tag and Tamu’s relative newness to the scene, they are filling up in the busy season and if you plan on coming between November and March, it’s best to reserve your room ahead.
