Towards the southern, quieter end of the beach, Secret Paradise may be a little pricey, but it offers beautiful bungalows, a great bar and restaurant, and all-around excellent service. Built in 2014, the spacious, comfortably-spaced-out, solid wooden bungalows are beautifully put together, with glass fronts looking straight out to sea, tiled floors, ensuite bathrooms, rattan furniture, plenty of storage, and airy balconies from which to take in an early-evening cocktail perhaps.

A hop and a skip away, the bar and restaurant offers up a full menu of Khmer and Western favourites. The Khmer curry we tried was delicious, and they also offer a few Polish specialities, a reflection of the hotel’s ownership. They also had the best-looking scotch list we’ve seen for a long time (at least, outside the capital), running from a 10-year-old Glenmorangie to a 16-year-old Lagavulin, with much in between.

The staff were faultless. Friendly, helpful, efficient, and also fun. The property also has WiFi and 24-hour electricity.

The price may seem high for a bungalow, certainly relative to what you may pay on the mainland, however, we were shown distinctly poorer properties on Saracen Bay all seeking the same or more. It is an unusually beautiful setting, and of course getting everything here from the mainland will add to operational expenses too. So while, $100 for a bungalow may seem steep, relative to its neighbours it remains pretty good value.
