Coastal Cambodia
The Royal Sands, Koh Rong

A stay at this luxury beach retreat, set out across the white sands of picture-perfect Koh Rong, makes for an unforgettable end to your Cambodian adventure.

Many of the white-washed villas feature a private pool, so you don’t even need to venture to the large rim-flow saltwater option also on offer to have a cooling dip.  If you’re feeling active there’s a variety of land and water-based sports to enjoy but make sure you make at least one visit to the tranquil Spa.

Facilities & Activities

Tropical gardens planted with coconut and palm trees lead down to the stunning beach and saltwater rim-flow swimming pool.  Sports on site include football and volleyball as well as a gym well equipped with a good selection of running machines and weights.  If you’d rather head out on the ocean, there’s also SUPs and kayaks to hand.

The semi open-air Spa beckons for a Thai massage, or relax with a meditation or yoga session. Some of the rooms even feature transparent glass floors, allowing you to spot tropical fish whilst enjoying a treatment!

If you’re keen to explore more of Koh Rong island, there are also bicycles for rent.

The easy beach access and ‘Robinson Crusoe’ vibe is bound to be popular with children of all ages.  It’s never far to return to get any forgotten item too!

One child can share a one bedroom villa on a sofa bed, whilst multi-room options are ideal for family stays when connecting accommodation is needed, featuring two or even three bedrooms.


To help explore the resort, solar panels are installed throughout the external areas and there’s a battery-powered car to transport guests when required around the gardens, which utilise the waste water.  When it comes to the beach, this is cleaned regularly of waste washed up on the shore, which is then sorted and sent for processing.

Plastic is minimised with the use of bamboo or paper straws and re-fillable glass bottles.


Royal Sands is located on Koh Rong island, a 45 minute boat ride from Sihanoukville on the mainland, in turn access by flight or a 3 hour road journey from Phnom Penh.  Located on one of the prettiest beaches in Cambodia facing West, you’ll benefit from some spectacular sunsets when staying here… desert island bliss!
