job from Netherlands
Bungalow with Fan
Stayed 3 nights in January 2017
4 Italian people run this place. We stayed here for 6 nights. Nearby otres beach for dinner. Breakfast is good, dinner is wonderfull. Bungalows are clean, Hammock in the front. Coffee or a beer brought by the owner at your own terrace! Beachtowels included and every day a new clean room if you want so. The coffee is Italian quality so you can drink at least 3 coffee before you start shaking, comparing with the local stuff. So all the facilities are great but most of all, the staff is the most friendly staff ever met during our trips. So much love and kindness. You have to visit Carpe Die only for this reason. Greetings, Nadia & Job Netherlands

Great place to stay”
Carpe Diem is well located within the area of Otres Beach. The bungalow where I stayed was superb. It was spacious, very clean and at the end of a busy day I was able to hop onto a hammock and simply relax. Silvia, Renato and Gianpaolo (there's another gorgeous italian lady that cooks but I forgot her name) made my stay very pleasant. They are good hosts, offer great italian food, and as you can imagine, the portions are generous and tasty. I recommend the home-made gelato and the calamari a la arrabbiata. This has been my best stay in Cambodia so far!

nice little bungalows”
Sweet Rooms with fan and moskitonet; little separate bathroom (low water pressure). Not cheap, but tasty original italian pastas. Very friendly, warm italian owners. 15min walk to beach restos/bars. Free bicycles.

A gem”
Owners' friendliness; food; location
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 us the day before, which was really helpful. We were greeted very warmly by all the team, and we spent much enjoyable time chatting with them during our stay. Their friendliness and open-mindedness does not hinder their professionalism, on the contrary! Everything was super clean, the rooms are nice, and have little details that make them nicer than average beach bungalows (little paintings on the wall etc.). It's not directly on the beach, but it's just a short walk away, and they provide bicycles for free. The bungalows are spread out in a very nice and relaxing little garden full of mango trees. The Italian restaurant is the most authentic we've tried in several years living in Southeast Asia. The food is home made, the owners are also the cooks and each of them has a specialty. Silvia also bakes delicious cakes with local fruit. It's a little bit more pricey than other places I guess, but really worth the additional few dollars. The music was super nice while we were having dinner (ranging from Dylan to Naepolitan songs). It just felt like being in a little trattoria a few steps away from the quiet Otres beach. We can only recommend Carpe Diem and we hope to be back next time we travel to Cambodia!

Amazing owners; quiet; I'd like more perks”
The owners are incredibly sweet and wonderful. It was incredible peaceful. The food was delicious.
We had a wonderful stay at the Carpe Diem Bungalow. Like I stated before, the owners were amazing. I would stay there again, just based on them alone. They have lovely bungalows. Enough room for a good double bed, mosquito netting, side tables, a place to hang all your clothes and store luggage,and they provided great towels. All that you need for a comfortable stay. I wish they would have provided toothbrushes and toothpaste for us because we forgot ours, but then again I didn't bother to ask, not their fault. Also, agoda states they have wifi, but I didn't pick up a noticeable signal nor was given any info, once again though, I did not ask so that is my fault. However, I am on a trip to the beach, not a trip to play on the internet all day. I could do that from home. Get off your phones and go to the beach, everyone! I am sure I could have asked the owners for anything or any help and they would have provided it for us. The location is a bit remote, being in Otres Villiage, but I really liked that. Carpe Diem seems to be one of the places the locals like to gather, understandably for the environment and food. It also was only a few minutes walk from the beach and when we got to the beach, it was like our own private beach. No one else was there. It was lovely and relaxing. About a five minute walk along the beach took us to a bunch of on the beach restaurants and hotels. After chilling out there for a few hours, I was definitely glad to get back to the peace and quiet of our little area. I will definitely stay at Carpe Diem again. If you want to avoid the weirdo beach bums, sellers, random loud music, and drunks, Carpe Diem is the place for you. They really did have a lovely vibe. Like I stated, the owners could not be more amazing. :D

Ok only”
Food and the service
Hotel is a 10 min walk to the beach and given it's location it should be quite. It isn't. Dog barking late at night then again in the early morning. No Wifi in the room which is inconvenient yet I could pick up the Moon bar ( next door) signal very well ??? Not good value for the money as the next day I moved to the Otres beach area for good wifi in the room and a quieter place !

Quiet, Italian food, lovely atmosphere
We enjoyed six nights staying in carpe diem bungalows. We loved the quiet atmosphere and the excellent Italian food. you must try the pasta and the cake :-) to the beach and bars 3 min with motorbike or 5 min with bycicle. You can also walk in 5 min to quiet beach location.everything is very clean, staff always smiling, helpful and nice. We like to come back.

Lovely place, lovely hosts!”
The room was great, lots of places to put our things! The hosts were wonderful, friendly and helpful! Free use of bicycles!
We had a great stay at Carpe Diem. The owners are warm and welcoming- it feels more like you are visiting them! Our room was spacious and pretty with lots of places to hang clothes- they thought about alot of details when creating their rooms. We had a pretty garden outside of our room that our daughter loved to play in.
