I'm going to be in Sihanoukville over Christmas and would like to know if anyone can recommend some accommodation. Ideally we want to stay in a hut on the beach. Does anyone know of anywhere and would we need to book in advance?
Also, I read somewhere that they have full moon parties in Sihanoukville, does anyone know where I can find out what dates they are held on?
Thanking you kindly,

Cloud 9 on Serendipity Beach is a good option, though they don't take reservations in advance. I'd expect the full moon parties are help on the night of the full moon ;-) You can see party dates for Ko Pha Ngan here -- I assume they're the same in Sihanoukville.
at the end of ochateul beach-a.k.a. serendipity beach you can get very basic accomodation just for free. they want you to eat and mainly drink there. this stretch of the beach is partyzone! and-as a matter of fact- full moon parties are usally when the moon is full.

Sorry I have just left Sihanoukville and the free accomodation was demolished 3 weeks ago. I did though find a great new place called the Cool Banana close to Serendipity for $6 per night that had grat food and friendly staff. They even have a freee lunch time buffet for those that buy a beer or two.

we have been in sihanoukville for 10 days in juli 2006 and stayed in coasters at serendipity beach. this is a very nice and friendly place, with a great restaurant and relaxing place direct on the beach. of course there are a lot of cheap places in the second street behind the beach, but i prefer to stay straight on the beach. along the beach I saw still some restaurants with the sign " free accomodation", they are very basic of course. the most of them have been destroyed, as sue already wrote.

I agree that staying on the beach is great but the bungalows that dcd is talking of are the caurse of polution. They should be demolished they have open drains that flow directly into the ocean. Admitadely they have septics for there toilet waste but kitche, bath and all taps free flow into the ocean. when will people realize that by supporting places like this they are destroying what is still one of the nicest beach resorts in the world.
