Sea Breeze Resort Sihanoukville - the Gem of Otres Beach 1

joohm-reap soo-a !
(it means 'hello' in Khmer language 😃)

I am just back yesterday from another trip to Cambodia with hb; this time to Sihanoukville. Many years ago, I heard that Sihanoukville was akin to Maldives paradise in South East Asia; however due to the many on-going constructions of multi-storey hotels in the city (time as per my trip), I am not so sure! I might talk more about this in next post but for now, I would love to just talk about the hotel that we stayed in; because I am so happy with this hotel and am so glad that I picked this hotel 😃

  • Strategic location right across the beach
  • Efficient and helpful reception
  • Clean and comfortable room with complete amenities
  • Delicious dinner and yummy breakfast
  • Great pool and sunbathing

The Location – right across the beach at Otres Beach 1

After booking my flight ticket about a month ago, the next thing I did was to search for a lodging to stay in. Because Sihanoukville has a few beaches and each beach offers different characteristics, first I had to decide which beach I wanted to stay at. I finally decided to stay at Otres Beach 1 as the purpose of this trip was to just relax and laze around and thus I didn't want to surround myself with all the hustle-bustle of the busier beach.

Then the next thing was, to pick a hotel at Otres Beach 1 and gosh I took many, many days to finally settle on Sea Breeze Resort, after considering the location and price, and the pictures online and reviews from other guests. I was able to book a standard bungalow at USD103.66 for a 2-night stay, via the Agoda booking site. I admit I had some worries too because there were not so good reviews from some guests too but I thought, since both of us are not fussy generally, so it would work out great for us hopefully...and yes it was!!!!

Sea Breeze Resort is located just near the junction to Otres Beach 1 and boasts a total of 22 elegant and comfortable bungalows with free WiFi access throughout the property. It took about 30 minutes travel time (about 10km) from the Sihanouk International Airport to reach the resort by taxi (USD20). Had the road condition is better (because there are so many constructions going-on at the whole city), I think it would take less than 30 minutes to reach.
