The Royal Sands Koh Rong is a gorgeous resort that has its own private beach on the island of Koh Rong. During a stay there, you will find yourself staying inside one of the luxurious villas, which offers all the comforts of home including Wi-Fi. During your stay, you will find yourself showering inside your bathroom, as well as in the outdoor shower that is attached to your villa. This is the best way to remove all the sand from your day at the beach or simply enjoy the beautiful weather as you shower for the day.
There is so much to do at the Royal Sands Koh Rong, and you will find that you are busy snorkeling, cycling, kayaking, and much more. You can even spend part of your time at the spa, where there are numerous spa treatments offered. The Chili Beach Bar and Grill is the perfect place to grab a drink and a bite to eat at the end of a long day of relaxing.
Here are 10 reviews from past travelers who stayed at the Royal Sands Koh Rong:
The Royal Sands Koh Rong is in an excellent location, yet it is secluded at the same time! I loved our room and the spectacular view from it, as well as the treatments that I had at the amazing spa. Every staff member was really friendly, and the general manager was quite professional, while making us feel right at home. The only downside during my stay was the times that the food was served and how you couldn’t get food while down on the beach. However, that would definitely not deter me from staying there again!
A Heavenly Escape
Traveling for vacation is supposed to be wonderful and I found exactly what I was looking for at the Royal Sands Koh Rong. The serene feeling was everywhere, and I easily felt it, as well as the tranquility, when I was in my room, in the breakfast room, and down at the beach. The staff gave us mosquito repellent, so that we would not have a million bug bites at the end of our stay. That was a nice touch, as we forgot ours! The only downside to our stay is that they do not serve food or drinks after nine or ten o’clock at night, which is not helpful when you are starving and thirsty at midnight.
Loved Our Stay
The Royal Sands Koh Rong is such a beautiful place and we loved our stay tremendously! I couldn’t say enough about the wonderful staff, the delectable cuisine, and the plethora of activities that we had to choose from!
Stunning Beach Resort – Best Place We Have Stayed in Cambodia
Our stay at the Royal Sands Koh Rong was short but sweet and we loved every minute of it! We loved the villas with the comfortable beds and the amazing breakfast that was served every morning. However, our favorite part was the yoga sessions, which were taught by a wonderful teacher who helped us improve our skills. The only thing that we didn’t like was the lengthy trip to the island and the rough water that we incurred in the process. However, it was worth every minute and every wave once we arrived.
A Hidden Gem
The Royal Sands Koh Rong is a true hidden gem that we found exceeded its five-star status. The spacious rooms were quite clean, and they provided phenomenal views at all hours of the day and night. I would definitely stay here again, but I would bring some food with me, as the restaurant closes early in the evening.
Great but Missing a Few Things
While I loved most of my visit at the Royal Sands Koh Rong, there are a few things that I wish they would either change or do something about. I wasn’t thrilled with the bar atmosphere, especially since it closed so early, but it would have been more bearable if I would have been able to watch movie channels on the television in my room. Also, the sand flies are horrendous and there is not much you can do besides spray repellent to hopefully prevent them from biting you.
Go Before Everyone Finds this Beautiful Destination!
The island of Koh Rong is absolutely beautiful, which is why I recommend that you travel there before the rest of the world finds it for themselves and the crowds arrive. We enjoyed our stay at this new hotel and appreciated how quiet is was the entire time that we were there.
Another Great Stay!
We have stayed here once before, and we had such a great time that we decided that we would choose the same resort when we returned for a future vacation. Our first visit was in one of the beachfront pool villas, so we were slightly spoiled with the private pool. This stay had us in the oceanview villa, which was nice, but we felt was lacking the better views. We also had to use the main pool, which wasn’t an issue, as it was fairly close to our room. We plan on returning but need to decide whether it is worth it to pay the extra money for the better views and private pool.
Excellence at its Finest
Words and superlatives do not seem to adequately express how good the Royal Sands Koh Rong really is! I have been traveling for more than forty years and this is one of the best hotels that I have stayed in within this area. I loved the high-quality items inside the Royal Sands, as well as the attentive staff and the natural beauty of the island. It is definitely worth the trek to get there!
Loved the Daily Beach Cleanup
I have gotten so tired of walking on litter cluttered beaches around the world, which is why I was happy to see that the staff cleaned the private beach of the Royal Sands Koh Rong every day. This ensured that no more garbage went out into the water, and that whatever washed up onto the shoreline got cleaned up too! That is a win in my book, and I will definitely return to stay there in the future!
As you can see, many past travelers loved staying at the Royal Sands Koh Rong, even if there were a couple little bumps along the way during a couple of their visits. You can experience this amazing hotel for yourself when you book your very first stay there.
