A tropical oasis
Truly an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Koh Kong city, yet just a short hop and a skip away, Oasis Resort’s main draw is its secluded location and gorgeous swimming pool.
The owner has a strict no-sex workers rule, and the place is certainly the most family-friendly in town. The five bungalows are reasonably spacious, and well-shaded, which will help to keep them cool. Each has a double bed (there’s also a family bungalow), air-con, mini-fridge, private bathroom with hot water, safe, TV and DVD player.
Between the pool, fitness equipment, outdoor bird aviary, pool table, Thai and Khmer restaurant and huge collection of DVDs, when you check in to Oasis you won’t feel the need to leave.
The infinity pool looks out on to the beginnings of the Cardamom Mountain range, and is a beautiful spot for catching some birdlife in action. Even if you’re not staying here, you can come and use it during the day for just $4.
The owner of Oasis, Jason, has been here for a long time and is a convivial source of information about the town and can advise visitors on jungle trekking and eco-tours. Although he does not bill himself specifically as an eco-lodge, they have many eco-friendly policies.
Located two kilometres outside of town, expect to pay $1 for a motodop or $2 for a tuk tuk ride here.
