Where is Mad Monkey Koh Rong Samloem?

Koh Rong Samloem is an island off the south coast of Cambodia. It’s located just southeast of the more heavily-visited Koh Rong island. To get out to Koh Rong Samloem, you’ll first need to get to Sihanoukville.


Getting to Sihanoukville

Buses run to Sihanoukville regularly from all major Cambodian cities (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Kampot) and from Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam.

Some local budget airlines run flights to Sihanoukville. Check out Cambodia Angkor Air or Cambodia Bayon Airlines.


Getting from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong Samloem

To get out to the island you will need to take a ferry. There are several ferry companies operating out of Sihanoukville — we recommend GTVC and Buva, both of which leave from Sihanoukville Port Autonomous.


The Final Leg of the Journey

The ferry will drop you off at one of Koh Rong Samloem’s major ports. The exact drop-off location is subject to change by season, but our Mad Monkey team always knows where the boat will be.

When you get off the ferry, Mad Monkey’s private boat (it’s orange with some pirate flags) will be waiting at the port to take all Mad Monkey guests the rest of the way to our private bay.

One of our Customer Experience Reps will be on the boat with you to answer any questions you may have, and get you excited for the epic time you’re about to have!

Free pick up from Orchid Pier at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., and 4 p.m. OR when the ferry arrives. Departure from the pier may not be at these exact times, but rest assured our boat will be there.

I was on my own before I decided to go on this trip but little did I know that this trip to Koh Rong Samloem would be the most adventurous trip of my life.

I made a lot of friends and felt like I was on vacation with my family. The vibes of the people you meet there are amazing and the staff at Mad Monkey are so kind and attentive.

I would recommend this to everyone. Rooms are quite spacious, clean and the sunset is so beautiful every morning. Food is so delicious and I am sure I might have put on some weight there because I just kept eating.

Working out on the beach and jumping from the pier on a sunny day is still etched in my memory from this trip. Also, how can I ever forget the thrill of seeing an island, beach and ocean for the first time?

Thank you for making my stay wonderful and encouraging me to jump from the pier that I would have never dared to do.

Thank you very much (Brian, Kat, Pipa and Peter and to the Khmer Staff) 💕
