Everything was wonderful about Indigo. Regardless whether you coming to Otres to chill or party, it's always great to wake up in the morning with the sea and bar just few steps away from your hut. The staffs and owners are very amiable and made me really feel like home and belonging. Please do try their Fish 'n Chips, wash it down with few glasses of Ricard, and it'll be the only food you want to eat for every meal! Merci beaucoup for the sweet memory, Indigo.

Ohhhhh Thank you Reno. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! (Ricard helps haha). Hope to see you somewhere else one day !!


A hut on the beach, great place to stay if you want to just chill on the beach for a day or so. Food was great to.


All-around great experience. The main bartender could've been up-to-date on local information.


I had only booked for one night, and ended up sstaying four nights. We only left because it was all booked up, and if we didn't go, we would have stayed there forever.

I haven't felt this relaxed in a long time. Highly recommend!


Only two dirty shower/ bathrooms for a whole resort. They gave you locks for your door and safety deposit box, these were old and almost useless. There was no one staying there! The rooms were filthy, dark and crazy hot. The staff were, however, absolutely lovely! The French girl on the bar and the Cambodian staff were really, really nice and if they did this place up it could be something really special.


Great location on Otres Beach, literally 5m from the wave. Otherwise basic, but ok accommodation. Easy to find better bungalows once you arrive. Indigo needs a new splash of life.


Very relaxed stay at Indigo on Otres. It's located on a lovely part of the best beach in Sihanoukville. The staff are really friendly and they recommended very well what to do and when. It's a very secluded area for being in Sihanoukville so it's nice to return from the town to quietness. The bar and food was great, there's a great sense of friendliness among the staff. It's very easy to get sand in your room and in your bed during the stay but that's only a minor thing

We spent a few relaxing days at this laid back hostel on the beach. From bed to beach was about five steps. The room felt secure (nobody but us went in there during our stay which I think helped- but the room got very sandy as it wasn't swept) and we were told that they have never had a problem with theft there. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food OK. Bring plenty of money because although there is an ATM a few hundred yards up the road, it was broken when we were there- not unusual


Positives: right on the beach and the staff are really nice. The area is good as well- much more laid back than serendipity and the beach was far better. Negatives: the huts felt pretty dirty and not that secure. Impossible to keep sand out which isn't much of a problem but it gets in the bed. No air con makes the rooms sweltering in the morning- I think more than one fan is needed. Also the shared bathrooms need to be kept cleaner- the bin was overflowing.


Very helpful and friendly staff we really enjoyed our stay!! Just think if there was a little bit of music from the bar area it would create more of an atmosphere. Lovely place to stay!!!


Absolutely adored these little bungalows on the beach. Waking up and having the beach just meters from your room is such a cool feeling, and the numerous bars and restaurants lining the beach within walking distance of Indigo was perfect. The towns about a 5 minute drive or $3 by tuk tuk or motorbike, and the staff were super friendly! Loved our stay here, if I had one complaint it’d be the low supply of toilet paper lol. Also pack mossie repellant, you’ll thank me later.


Being on Otres beach was great. We woke up to a really beautiful view every morning. Cleanliness could have been better though - the bathrooms definitely could have been better. There are two between all the shacks to share and one was always flooded after someone showered so I can't imagine it during peak season. It is a lot more quiet than Serendipity but a tuk tuk isn't too far if you wanted to go there at night.


Small hostel (only 10 rooms) with a lovely chilled vibe (not a party place!!!). Food and drinks were great and the staff were lovely and made an extra effort to make our stay memorable. The location is superb - on the beach! Would definelty stay here again.

thank you for this return on your stay, especially thank you for your confidence in indigo and in all the team! We will not forget you, especially not emily !!


This is the perfect place is you want somewhere chilled and quiet on the beach, away from the hassle and main strip. My boyfriend and I ended up staying longer than the original booking. There are two toilets for 10 huts, however never had to wait to long. The food was lovely and fresh. The room is simple, with a padlock for the main door and one for a chest. The staff were friendly and took time to talk to everyone. I would stay here again. It's so nice.

i realy want to reply to your coment, and especially, i want to tell you: thank you! All the team was pleased to meet you and spend time with you. Thank you for this moments together and Sao, Emily, Panna, Mot and Me are delighted to make your stay in Indigo and in Cambodia a special moment...


Room was basic and inexpensive, clean enough, a little dark and almost impossible to keep the sand out - a wash basin for your feet would be helpful outside the room, since it's directly on the beach and even the path to/from the shower is sand. The roof fan didn't work very well, barely made a breeze which hot a bit hot at night. The food was OK but better can easily be found elsewhere. Location is good, and it might be a bit more lively in high season, as it was really quiet for our visit.


Awesome location on the beach, friendly staff and a chilled atmosphere.


The hotel is kind of far away from the central but you have a beautiful view of the beach. However, the staff is not really friendly and helpful. When I arrived at 2pm, their staff were playing sknokers and none of them bothered to welcome me. The man at the reception ran back to give me the key and quickly showed me my room then off to his game again. The toilet was disgusting, stink of urine smell. There was no toilet paper (their staff didnt check and clean the toilet often).


Really nice place to stay for a night or two Owner and her brother really nice and helpful Was very quiet but i dont know whether its like that all the time or just because of the time we went Lovely place


Gorgeous location with a friendly staff. Great escape from the busy cities to a relaxing few days at the beach. Other than a terrible sunburn (beware) no complaints. No aircon, but the fans were enough to keep in pleasant at night.
