Serendipity Beach Resort

Excellent value

What we say: 4 stars

Offering five-star rooms at three-star rates, Serendipity Beach Resort is a solid choice for those seeking creature comforts. Rooms are plush, the hotel has stunning ocean views and a beautiful 30-metre pool beckons.

Perfect for a good night's sleep

Not quite for backpackers.

On first glance, one may assume Serendipity Beach is just another one of the charmless hotels here catering to the hordes of Chinese tour groups; even after entering the large, under-used lobby you might still be thinking the same thing and as you ride the cramped elevator to your floor and step out into a barren looking hallway, you may really believe you’ve made the wrong choice. But one glimpse into your stunning room and you’ll realise you’ve picked a winner.

Gargantuan lobby

Gargantuan lobby.

If you’ve chosen an ocean view room, you’ll notice large sliding doors leading out to a private balcony overlooking the beach. Bathrooms offer a full enclosed shower and over-sized bathtub, a relative rarity in Cambodia. They have smartly designed the bathroom with a tub-to-ceiling window that allows you to peer through the room and out to the ocean while soaking away in the tub. Privacy in the bathroom might be a little lacking, but you can always pull down the blind.



Rooms are large and immaculately clean with plush beds covered with white linens. They are well decorated, with a brightly painted accent wall, vibrant orange couch and comfy lounge, a desk in case you need to get in a little work and a large flat screen TV. Other amenities include in-room safe, WiFi and electric kettle.

Have a seat and relax

As well as the pool, the hotel boasts a gym and attached restaurant. The gym leaves a bit to be desired, with just a ramshackle collection of dated cardio equipment, but makes up for this somewhat with large glass windows allowing for an ocean view while exercising. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword though because the windows result in the gym getting hot on sunny days.

Anybody up for a run?

Anybody up for a run?

If going with a pool view room, we recommend asking for one on the ground floor. You’ll have a private sitting area behind your room located less than a metre from the pool, so you can walk out the back and dive right into the water.

Just a step away from your back door

Word around town is the restaurant serves a large, tasty breakfast with unlimited coffee for $4. Just be sure to get there before 11:00, when they stop serving.

Overall Serendipity Beach rates right up there with some of the other luxury resorts in town where you’ll be paying $60 or more a night. If you are a walk-in, they offer discounted rates of just $32 a night.
