Coconutbeach Bungalows is considered one of the most rewarding, beautiful bungalow stays in Koh Rong, Cambodia. It is located in Derm Tkov Village, one of the five villages on Koh Rong Island. Our beach is untouched by civilization, its soft sand and clear water a pure gift of nature. The natural eco-system emits a calm harmony that eases the mind. There is only one small, exotic palm-fringed beach in the area of Derm Tkov and it is unblemished by the scourge of plastic. The beach’s sand stretches out like a white carpet. All that can be heard is the natural melody, music composed by the combination of bird song and the sound of waves washing up on the beach and stroking the rocks lining both sides of the small bay. The water is crystal clear and at 9 o’clock in the morning, the striking reflection of the sun adorns the shimmering blue surface. During some months of the year the sea is a beautiful green when observed from the top of the mountain. All of these natural qualities indicate how healthy the surrounding eco-systems are.
The recent boom of tourism indicates the delightful Koh Rong Island has been discovered. The main beach is filled with travelers and tourists. However, our beach in Derm Tkov is one of the most separated, culturally preserved villages on Koh Rong Island. It is poor yet innocent and peaceful. Most people in the village make a living by fishing. When you stay here you can observe the locals in their fishing village: men and women practicing the livelihood of their ancestors; the young, the old, and even the children following the traditions of their parents and grandparents.
During your stay you can also enjoy activities such as fishing and hiking, snorkeling, volleyball, frisbee games, barbequing etc. (necessary equipment for all is provided). Various card games and board games are available as well. There are hammocks, chairs, deck chairs and tables spread around the area for your convenience and comfort.
We built the bungalows and restaurant here with the aim to procure local produce, like seafood, from the people in the village and serve fresh dishes to the tourists. In this way we hoped to aid the villagers in sustaining their traditions while providing travelers with delicious Khmer dishes. What we had hoped for has become reality and we are proud of the system we have created, and happy to have the ability to carry on with this generally beneficial approach.
The bungalows’ location, near to the beach on the slope of the hill, allows all of our guests to enjoy the picturesque views closeup and without obstacles. Coconutbeach Bungalows is a family business that began with the construction of two bungalows, a restaurant, and a bar, yet we have been fortunate enough to grow with the building of more bungalows and with numerous renovations. We continue to improve in any way we can to ensure that our guests’ needs are always met and their cravings are satisfied. Our Asian-style wooden bungalows are equipped with the amenities of a western room for your convenience and for that ‘home away from home’ feel. Because that is what Coconutbeach Bungalows is: a natural, pure, tranquil, and happy home.
