A relaxing stay at the Tamu

Review of Tamu Koh Rong
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Dec 2019
We stayed for 5 nights in November and was so tempted to extend our stay! The accommodation was comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly and always on hand to help. Food was to a high standard too. A great place to stay to just relax and unwind. Leave your shoes in the room, and enjoy the barefoot experience! Highly recommend Tamu for your stay on the island.

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you liked the barefoot chic spirit of Tamu. Indeed we propose luxury tents with all the comfort and also concretes rooms nestled at the entrance of the jungle.

We are facing a beautiful clear water beach, full of palmtrees, not crowded which is perfect to unwind and relax.

From organizing our transfer to the hotel to the breakfast, the massage, the dinner and the exquisite drinks - we cherished our 2 days at tamu a lot. The hotel managed to preserve the nature very well - a big plus compared to other resorts at pagoda bay. The management team was very helpful when we had difficulties with our flight there - they helped us organizing a boat later that day. I can totally recommend this oasis for people who just want to spend relaxing days reading and swimming surrounded by palmtrees.

If you are considering stay, stop it and make your reservation already. There will be nothing to regret. We stay in deluxe jungle (garden) tent and it was experience itself. Dont be afraid of it. More luxurious then other so called “deluxe rooms” in Cambodia (we stay in four different hotels). Everything you should need during your stay is there. We had our own small garden infront of room (room 9) and there was really high level of privacy and intimity. Outdoor shower is great. Everything well design and chic. Perfect design taste of owners can be feeled throughout hotel. Room service is also available everything can be managed with your phone through reception whatsup account. Our room was cleaned at the morning as we came for breakfast they made up our room. Also when we went for dinner, staff (probably) get signal and prepare our room for night (really 2xper day). Beach was great. Water really shallow and clean. Enough sunbeds for everybody (3 different types) no need for sun umbrellas lot of palms providing enough shadow for everybody (when its needed). One or two members of staff always on beach ready to fullfill your wishes. We got two great masagges on beach which were really affordable. As we stay for six nights we try almost every item on the menu and there was no problem and everything was really great (taste & serving 5*). I would like to thank owners and staff for great experience and great level of service. Please keep on doing this. The world is big and our travel desires are wide but i hope one time we will have one more oportunity to come for visit.

Dear tajkonaut_sc,

This is such a beautiful review, thank you so much. We are so glad to make you feel happy like this. Indeed our team does its best to make your stay as best as possible and your review is such a reward, thank you very much.

As we follow the concept of glamping, some amenities have been modified to fit the atmosphere of the place. We replaced the telephone in the room by a whatsapp number so we can talk easily by message. There is no proper minibar neither but an icebox that we can refill of ice and bring drinks when you need. The comfort is the same, all the tents have an outdoor private bathroom, air conditioned, a king size comfy bed.

Thank you for your compliments about the menu, we tried to follow the taste of each guest, we propose khmer dishes, some seafood, western and vegetarian dishes. In case you get bored you can try our daily evening special dish.

We wish you happy end of year celebrations we hope to welcome you again in the near future,

Sincerely,

Tamu Koh Rong Team

We spent 3 nights in Tamu Koh Rong and loved every minute of our stay. From the moment you arrive in the resort, you feel right at home. We opted to stay in one of the tents and would absolutely recommend these. You will wake up with palmtree views and the sounds of the sea. The resort has a pool and also its own private, secluded beach surrounded by palm trees. The staff is very helpful & friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a comfortable one. The resort can also arrange activities such as motorbike rentals, kayaking… Would definitely recommend this to anyone seeking a quiet getaway in Koh Rong.

Room tip: Take a tent - you'll love it!

Dear EBelMel,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, we are very glad that you enjoyed fully your stay here. I will share your review with our staff, they will feel so happy to read your words.

Indeed we propose luxury tents: some are seafront, some have seaview and some are located deeper in the garden. In total we have 15 units and our staff have time to take care of each of your needs.

Pagoda beach is a very nice beach because it is not crowded as some other beaches of the island and you can move easily to the other bays by renting a scooter or by hiring a mototaxi and if the sea is calm you can even rent a taxiboat.

We wish you happy end of year celebrations and we hope to welcome you again soon!

Warm regards

We definitely recommend Tamu Koh Rong and loved our stay there!!!

Tiny hotel where you sleep in very nice and big tents. It is literally Glamping with an outdoor bathroom. Very clean rooms and hotel. We enjoyed the food, especially the pineapple beef and the pagoda burger with our feet in the sand. Great beach front, which is well taken care of.

There is hardly anything negative to be said. Traveling there by boat worked perfectly well.
Food and drinks are quite pricey but that was to be expected on an island and also due to the higher standard of the hotel (and great quality of food!). We would have liked complimentary water throughout the day (maybe in glass carafes to avoid plastic bottles) as a minor improvement point.

The only big negative which is NOT connected to the hotel is that one has to travel through aweful Sihanoukville to get to Koh Rong. Make sure you limit your transit time there!!

Dear 843carmenk

Thank you very much for your beautiful review. We are very glad to see that you enjoyed the place but also the food.

Tamu is located between a pristine clear water beach and the jungle, the hotel is surrounded by the Nature. You can watch squirrels, monkeys or toucan behind the hotel if you are lucky.

Currently there are three other resorts on Pagoda bay, so you can try other restaurants in order to never get bored but our restaurant is open for breakfast lunch and dinner.

We take good note of your recommendation, it will help us to improve our services.

With our best regards,

Tamu Koh Rong Management
