A growing collection of bars and restaurants are opening up to cater to the steadily increasing trickle of tourists visiting the idyllic island of Koh Rong Samloem. Here are some of the best.
Located in the small but developing fishing village of M’Pai Bay, Sunset Bungalows is a small beachside resort comprised of a collection of bungalows. It is also home to a restaurant that overlooks the white sands and clear waters, and welcomes outside guests through its doors. Specialising in French and Khmer cuisine, the freshest ingredients are prepared by talented locals, who are overseen by a French chef.
For scrumptious bargain bites on a tropical beach setting, head to Erin’s Kitchen. Famed in the village for serving up a hearty selection of Khmer and Western food, it is popular in the morning for its breakfast dishes, which span fresh fruit, noodles, pancakes and fry-ups. It also offers lunch and dinner options.
This delightful eco-resort boasts a restaurant serving up a wide selection of food from Cambodia and beyond. The menu is MSG-free, with all food cleaned and cooked in drinking water to keep any potential bad belly at bay. Seafood is the order of the day, with fresh food caught and delivered daily. Think mackerel wrapped in bacon with parsley potatoes and salad, and stuffed squids, green pepper sauce and rice.
Offering fusion cuisine, this urban-style accommodation and eatery nestled on the beachfront boasts a menu packed with Asia-European food. And it is famous nationwide for its top-quality pizzas. The thin and crispy delights come with a range of toppings – perfectly accompanied with a glass of chilled white wine.
The One Resort has its own restaurant serving up Asian and European cuisine throughout the day and night. Its beachside location means diners can spend the rest of the day lounging on one of the sun beds that dot the stretch of perfect beach, enjoy a massage at the spa, make use of the gym or take a dip in the resort’s swimming pool. It is also a child-friendly restaurant ideal for families.
