“Those who call this place "Paradise" are right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

My wife and I stayed in the second of nine cabins there for three days in early July. I am not sure it was even possible to have a better break from the intensity of Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City. Ok, hot showers would have been nice, but that's it. We loved the spacious enclosed huts beach and the gorgeous sunrises. The peace it offers you from the porch would be the equivalent of years of therapy. You can read and swim to your heart's content or chat with what were invariably an enjoyable group of like-minded vacationers, but everyone seems to respect the others' privacy and peace and quiet, so you can do as much or as little socializing as you want. . The food at the restaurant is great. The place is run by a peerless staff.They are charming, good-humored and always helpful. I can't say enough about how much they make this place what it is. Our only concern is that the island remains unspoiled as there is some building going on (not near the hotel) and we hope it doesn't reach Saracen, for surely we will return some day.

Room Tip: The staff seemed to put families in the first cabin. If kids playing around, chattering away is not...

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Saracen bay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bungalow was situated right on the beach only having to walk a few meters into the crystal blue waters! The bungalow was quaint and basic but the views from your bed in the morning were exceptional. We had a fantastic time here and hope to come back again in the future!

Spent 2 nights there mid July and absolutely loved it. The newest of the bungalows (only 18months old) in the bay and it's very obvious as they are in the best condition by far. No complaints at all it is the ideal bungalow - clean, spacious, awesome couches out on the balcony, you're own loungers and big mosquito net and fan to help you through the night. We ate all our meals at their restaurant and enjoyed them all and the company of the staff even more. Great English and told us about the waterfalls and how to walk over to lazy beach. Great spot just wish we had more sunshine!

We stayed next to this bungalow but I visited Saracen Bay Resort and it is the best resort & restaurant on this Island. Every meal, we went to there because the food is excellent and the friendliest staff who often gave us commend where to go what to do and so on.

The resort is a bit more expensive then the one i stayed but it is worth to pay a bit extra for the best one.

Toilet at restaurant are always close, you need to ask the key. I understand that it is the way to keep it cleans for their customer only.

I was blown away by this little piece of paradise. I had met two English girls back in Phnom Penh and recommended I visit Koh Rong. I ended up in Koh Rong Samloem by mistake only because I didn't know there were two islands, though I was drawn to this property thinking it was on the other island. It is one of the best mistakes that could have happened. The communication prior to arriving was always prompt, they organised everything from picking me up at the airport to dropping me off to the ferry. I was met at the other end by a lovely gentlemen who carried my 4 wheeler Samsonite across the sand. A healthy tip was necessary. The staff went out of their way to make it special. Only 9 bungalows, all on the beach and very private. Facilities are basic but that is the charm. This island is not over crowded unlike Koh Rong. Very eco friendly and if you have a chance to walk to the other side and visit Lazy Beach for a beautiful piece of fish it is well worth it. A special thanks to Peter who knew all of this guest and some of the visitors from neighbouring bungalows as well, he really knew how to look after everyone. The beach in front was always pristine thanks to the staff constantly patrolling their resort.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any one of the 9 bungalows. I had no 2 and loved it.

The bungalows on the beach were very cute and homely. It was lovely to wake up every morning to the views of the ocean. All the staff working here are lovely, especially the manager who spoke wonderful English. The restaurant served beautiful food, the best on the island.
