Heavenly Koh Rong Samloem, Cambodia – Part 2

Second and last part of our trip is here full of breathtaking views!

Heavenly Koh Rong Samloem, Cambodia - Part 2

On Part 1 we showed you Saracen Bay, and today the star will be Lazy Beach.
But first you have to find your way there:

Getting To Lazy Beach

Heavenly Koh Rong Samloem, Cambodia - Part 2

Just besides Sun Island Eco Village Resort in Saracen Bay there’s a sign showing the direction for lazy beach trail that takes 20-25 min.
The walk is easy on an open, mostly shadowed pathway.
On the way you can hear the sounds of nature and nothing else, breathe fresh air and enjoy the landscape.

Heavenly Koh Rong Samloem, Cambodia - Part 2

If you’re not feeling like walking, renting a boat to get you there is possible.
However the trail is really simple and pleasant, we recommend you to do it by land.

 

Lazy Beach

Heavenly Koh Rong Samloem, Cambodia - Part 2

An inviting, basically empty stretch of sand, to relax as you wish.
Distinguishing from Saracen and its blues and whites, with clear light jade water and golden sand.

There’s only one hotel available, where you can find something to eat in order to spend the day over there.
Their passion fruit and mint juice was delicious, I suggest you to give it a try.😉

Snorkeling

We tried both sides of the bay, we’ve been told that the sea was a little shaky that day and usually it’s even more clear.
Facing the ocean, the right side had more marine life and the left was deeper with more corals.
We saw many sea urchins, but the ones that got my attention were the white ones, something you will sure encounter as well if snorkeling in Lazy Beach.🐠

Seducing crystal clear water and gorgeous white sand on a pristine paradise island.
Let’s be honest, what else would you need?

Not Big For Party Fans

If your goal is to party every night, this is definitely not a good choice.
Having a drink looking at the sea is sure possible, but nothing even near to a party is available around.

Exploring Koh Kood, Thailand - Part 1

Secluded Feeling

If a paradisiacal island, unspoiled, with peace and quiet is your goal: Bingo!
With the great balance of having enough hotel and restaurant options and even massage and small shops.

Exploring Koh Kood, Thailand - Part 1

What To Do

Waterfalls – There are 3 well-known waterfalls that are the most visited but if you are an explorer you may find a new one yourself.😉
We’ve been to the main Klong Chao Waterfall. I felt like my soul was being washed when I seated under the falling, refreshing water.
There’s great energy in that place, take the opportunity to refill your batteries.

Exploring Koh Kood, Thailand - Part 1

Mangroves – To complete the exotic atmosphere, the island is doted with imposing mangroves.If you don’t have extra time to tour them specifically, just keep an eye on your way between bays and you probably will peek at mother nature art.

Kayaking – Usually restricted to the sea, here you have the option of kayaking as well through the river near by the mangroves until a waterfall.🐒

Snorkeling – If compared to famous snorkeling spots, Koh Kood won’t make to the top, mostly due sandy bottom.
The water is a crystal clear lagoon, but as there’s no big reefs the biodiversity is quite low compared to other Thai destinations.

Exploring Koh Kood, Thailand - Part 1

Diving – From taking your Padi to advanced dives, all available for a good price compared to other countries.There’s a few companies at the island, giving you a bit of flexibility at your choice.

Chilling – Is relaxation your thing?Ok, no problem! Find a comfy spot at the empty sand and fill your eyes(and spirit!) with joy.

Exploring Koh Kood, Thailand - Part 1

Treepod Dining With Zipline Waitress – Treepod restaurant at Soneva Kiri Resort counts with picturesque setting, even the way you food is served is surprising.
But this treat is not to everyone due to the high price (around 400 usd per person).

Massage – One thing we learned is, unlike other Thai islands, here if you don’t schedule a massage you may see yourself waiting in the line or having to leave it to the other day. It’s probably not an issue at low season.

Trekking – The island is developing quickly, but still there’s a lot of unexplored places.If you’re a trek lover you’ll delight yourself with the diversity that can be found around.

Ancient Makka Trees – Ancient trees are all around untouched Koh Kood rainforest, but some of them are at the spotlight because age and size.
There’s signs at the main road leading to their location, a nice site to connect with the island.

What To Eat

As if you aren’t already lucky enough, not only the island shines but also the delicious Thai food.
Take advantage on each meal to try out exotic, flavorful dishes.
Some of our favorites are Green/Red/Massaman Curry, Vegetable Pad Thai(fried rice noodle) and Veggie Tom Yam (spice soup).
A fresh young coconut to drink and sticky rice with mango for dessert, is a must at least once!😋
Also along the roads you’ll find yummy cashew, banana, mango and more produced at the island.It’s definitely worth a try.

Where To Stay

As the place is yet not target by mass tourism, finding accommodation can be a little harder.
Conventional hotel booking websites won’t have much options as they do for other destinations in Thailand.

There’s one website where you can check most of the available hotels there plus some more info about the island:
www.destinationkohkood.com
(Disclaimer:Be aware that this is a third part website and we do not hold responsibility for any sale or claim they may do, neither we get any kind of commission)

Personally, after checking the website above, we selected our hotel and found their phone number in google.
Then we just called and booked by ourselves.Everything worked out just fine, we had a great stay.🌴
