If you’re looking for a slice of Cambodian Paradise, then you’re looking for the island of Koh Rong. Koh Rong is best known for its white sand beaches, coral reefs and relaxed vibes.
Any trip to Cambodia should include a minimum of 2 nights on the tropical island of Koh Rong, and I know just the place for you to stay.
Sok San Beach Resort is a unique timber style accommodation option, located right on Sok San beach front. The adorable timber style bungalows offer stunning ocean views, immediate access to the beach, free wifi, a range of activities (sea and land) and on-site restaurants and bars with awesome happy hour deals.

Things to do at Sok San Beach Resort
While I recommend spending the majority of your time at Sok San Beach Resort soaking up the serene surrounding and taking some time to disconnect and relax, there are a number of activities you can partake in. All these activities can be arranged by the friendly front office staff.
Snorkelling and scuba diving
Koh Rong is home to some of the most pristine coral reefs in the world, so it’s no surprise that scuba diving and snorkelling are must-do activities on Koh Rong. The cost of snorkelling from Sok San beach Resort is $20 USD per person.
If one island paradise isn’t enough for you, fear not. You can easily arrange an island hopping tour. You can choose between half day (45USD) and full day (65USD) tours which take you to Koh Rong Samloem Island and includes snorkelling.
For the families and thrill seekers, you can arrange to go water skiing, wakeboarding or tubing on the crystal clear waters surrounding Koh Rong. Kayaking and sailing is also an option. Watersports start from 20USD.
Glowing Plankton Discovery Tour
You can experience glowing plankton on a nighttime tour from Sok San Beach Resort. This tour is only available at certain times so check in with hotel staff on arrival. Cost is $15USD for adults and $7USD for kids.
This one certainly isn’t for me, but can be a lot of fun for others. Fishing tours are 20USD per person.
Tour the mangrove forest
Kayaking on Koh Rong’s Prek Tor Sok Mangrove River is a great way to explore and get up close to the wildlife and ecosystems. Tours from Sok San Beach Resort are $20USD for a single kayak and $15USD for a double kayak.
Treat yourself to a massage
I’m not going to lie, this may be my favourite option at Sok San. Why not relax when you’re in one of the most remote, serene places in the world. Massages start from $20USD.
