Koh Rong Sanloem - Complete Travel Guide

“Welcome to paradise!”

That’s likely to be the greeting you’ll hear when you first step foot on Koh Rong Sanloem… and it’s not far wrong!

Because it has to be said this place is pretty damn idyllic!

From the azure blue ocean that gently laps at the white sand shores, to the green jungle richness that backs the coast to, quite frankly, one of the most chilled vibes I’ve ever experienced in my traveller career – this is the spot in Cambodia as far as I’m convinced.

And you know what I mean by the spot right?!

In the same way Byron Bay is the spot on east coast of Australia, Golden Bay is the spot in New Zealand, Little Corn Island is the spot in Nicaragua and Chefchaouen is the spot in Morocco, Koh Rong Sanloem is the spot in Cambodia – yeah you know what I’m talking about, so read on to learn more…

Where is Koh Rong Sanloem?

Koh Rong Sanloem is a small island off the southern coast of Cambodia in the Gulf of Thailand.

There’s actually a collection of islands here – including the slightly larger Koh Rong and some other tiny ones – but I’m going to suggest you visit Koh Rong Sanloem, which has the perfect balance of being small enough to feel hidden, but larger enough to meet other people and have a good time.
As such, it’s often compared to the Thai islands in terms of its appearance, but is known for having far less tourists and being a little bit more laidback / behind / less developed – all plus points in my book when I’m looking for a tropical island getaway to be honest!
