Top ChoiceLodging in Koh RongLonely Beach
Lonely Beach is a traveller Shangri-La hidden on a private beach along Koh Rong's northern tip. Committed to ecofriendly living, the jungle-chic bungalows and glorious open-air dorms are breeze-cooled, and all water is dispensed via coconut-shell scoop. High season sees island-hopping trips and nightly banquets on the beach. More a way of life than a resort, Lonely Beach entices many to stay for months. Solar-powered electricity is limited to the restaurant (evenings only), and there's no wi-fi (although Smart's 4G network is accessible). Private boat transfer from Sihanoukville is US$15 each way, or you can walk from Prek Svay village (about 45 minutes if you don't get lost). Book directly through the resort for the best prices.
