Sokha Hotel

Sihanouk Ville is a great little tropical getaway in the sun, sea and white sandy beaches. A place to unwind in a lay back ambience, enjoy ocean-fresh seafood and take in a snorkeling or scuba diving trip. The Sokha Luxury Hotel Sokha Beach Resort, set amidst 23.5 hectares of beautifully landscaped beachfront and garden with its own 1.5 kilometer pristine white sandy beach is a top choice when vacationing in South East Asia.

It was voted amongst the Best New Hotels in the World in Conde Nast Traveler Magazine's Ninth Annual Hot List of 2005.
A nearby attraction is the Ream National Park located 18 km from Sihanoukville and a must see while in Southern Cambodia. The park, which has been open since 1993, encompasses 30,000 acres of rainforest and 12,000 acres of marine habitats.
