Unforgettable stay

Song Saa was our final stop on our Cambodia adventure and were we blown away. It was the most amazing place I have ever been to. From a booked and organised hired car down from Phnom Penh, to fresh cold towels and champagne on the boat to the island, we were taken in as family and felt so special. We arrived at our Villa with a lovely introduction to all the staff by the manager Donald. We stayed in the Jungle villa, which was beautifully managed each day. Little surprises always left for us on our nightly return after dinner. Keo was one of the members of the team who looked after us and he, along with the entire team, always had warm and caring smiles and were happy to have a chat to us. Along the way we learnt some Khmer too! What was so special was all of the conservation and work going into the local villages and wow!, what a difference they are making. It was great to see that the money going into the resort was going to great movements towards the local villages. We had an absolute ball, from amazing pools to swim in, beautiful clear waters to snorkel and a real relaxation paradise. Oh and not to forget, the food was delicious each night. Could not fault any aspect of our experience, and we hope to be back sooner rather than later! Thanks again Song Saa for having us!!!

Amazing Stay

Song Saa was the last part on our Cambodia holiday and it was the most amazing, relaxing and inspiring part. My friend and I shared a jungle villa and every single detail was taken care of by Donald, Keo and the team. From pick up at our hotel in Phnom Penh in a private car at the beginning, and return to Sihankouville airport at the end, we were cared for and made to feel like family. It was inspirational to see what the Song Saa Foundation has done for the local community and we were happy to see that our contributions to the resort would go to building sustainable and eco-friendly supports for the area. We hope so much that we will have the opportunity to visit again and see their great work. I cannot recommend this resort highly enough for those who want to impact positively through their travel 😊
