Review: Romdoul Resort aka Nature Beach, Koh Rong

Beautifully situated, Romdoul Resort, also known as Nature Beach, has a lovely beach but disappointing service.

Romdoul Koh Rong, also called Nature Beach, is a Cambodian-run accommodation that offers wooden bungalows and inexpensive camping options. The wooden bungalows are simple, with one or two beds and mosquito nets, but a few have air-conditioning. There’s also a massive family bungalow with two double beds. All bungalows have private balconies for lounging.

Tents come with a futon and pillows. Tents that sleep one are on the ground and are less expensive, but tents for two are on a platform several feet off the ground.

Although the beach is beautiful and secluded, Romdoul get poor reviews for service, noise, and hordes of daytrippers that take over the beach, and for that reason, we’ve never stayed there.

Be aware that they use both the names Romdoul and Nature Beach. An employee explained to me that they call it Romdoul Koh Rong to market to Cambodians and Chinese tourists and Nature Beach to market to foreigners — he also said that only Westerners want to sleep in tents. If you do want to stay there, check both names (and note that they have double listings on review sites under both names as well).
