We only spent two nights at Silvias and Gianpaolos place, but we immediately felt comfortable due to the warm welcome of the sympathetic Italian couple. The rooms were clean and calm. There's no air condition, but the fan is doing its job well. Good shower and clean bathroom. We once ate at the restaurant which was delicious. The prices for...

Me and a friend visited Carpe Diem in November 2015 for 3 nights whilst travelling around Cambodia and what can I say, this place is fantastic! The food freshly prepared with some ingredients being imported straight from Italy, the restaurant was like our own private 'little italy'... Bravissimo bella! We were made to feel so welcome throughout our stay and...

We stayed at the Carpe Diem for three nights, the place is run by a lovely Italian couples and every piece of the property looks like it was build with love!

We had a fantastic stay at Carpe Diem, and we already miss the Italian owners. We only stayed two nights but when we left it was like leaving home. Even before we arrived, Silvia was really helpful in organising our stay through email and answering all my questions. Her husband Giampaolo booked our boat tickets to Koh Rong Samloem for...

This was a little piece of heaven, Sylvia and Renalto treated us like family, they are so kind and accommodating and helpful. It is a lovely place to eat, with traditional home cooked Italian food, which is bliss if you've been a bit overloaded with noodle soup for a few weeks! I had been very ill before arriving here and...

Fabulous, well priced, great hospitality, clean, good food. Tranquil, feel good, great to recharge your batteries. Highly raccommended. The warmth of the hosts makes it extra special too. That usually makes all the difference, not that the accomodation cannot stand on its own merit.
