Sok San Bungalows
Basic but relaxing
Sok San Village, Koh Rong T: (092) 676 646
Eleven beach bungalows looking straight out to sea at Sok San, and they are finished with a slightly better cut than the rest.
They’re not luxurious by any stretch, and the mattresses won’t be winning any awards, but the views, and the beach, kind of make up for that.
Embracing the ethos of basic, with a concrete-floored ensuite bathroom per bungalow, there's not much to do here other than read, eat, swim and walk to the end of the pier and back to see how far it is, then plonk yourself on your balcony for another laze. The bungalows came under new management in late 2014 and the owner happily provided us with a torch, mosquito coils, battery-powered fan at night, and free welcome drink. Design-wise the bungalows look worn and weathered, though the practical touches meant we ended up more comfortable here than at pricier places elsewhere. They'd also just bought a washing machine should you be in desperate need of laundry to be done. The attached restaurant is reasonable value with a standard selection of Khmer dishes, seafood and the obligatory pancakes. Though sunrise facing, the light did some pretty things come sunset.
