Luxury, serenity and a deep connection with the environment

This gorgeous private island resort just off the coast of Sihanoukville is one of Cambodia's best kept secrets. Perfect for an indulgent retreat after exploring the Angkor Temples, spend a few nights relaxing in your very own private pool villa with nothing but the sounds of the jungle and the lapping waves of the ocean as a soundtrack. There is a real emphasis on sustainability and barefoot luxury at this resort and you can choose to partake in many optional experiences including island safaris, visits to a local village, Khmer cooking classes and picnics on nearby Koh Rong island. Meals can be enjoyed at the over water restaurant with incredible ocean views or you can create your own romantic dining experience with the help of the resort chefs. Reached by road and speedboat from Sihanoukville airport, this fabulous resort offers the ultimate private island experience.

A place to unwind and feel at peace

Sydney, Australia

My husband and I stayed in a beach front villa for 5 nights and I found the whole Song Saa experience the most relaxing holiday we have had. If you want somewhere to put down your mobile phone, live in the moment and just enjoy the peaceful surrounds, this is for you. From the beautifully appointed villa, friendly staff, stunning sunsets, thoughtful dining venues and great food. Nothing is too much to ask and the staff are so happy (it rubs off)- sure not everyone there has perfect English but it does not seem to matter. A luxury island with a social conscience - would not hesitate to go again and was sad to leave

Making the details count

Charlottesville, Virginia

My husband and I stayed at Song Saa for three nights in March during a month long trip to Asia. The resort absolutely lives up to the hype, but I have a small story that says a lot about the care that is taken of guests. It's Cambodia. It's hot. Chocolate is not a thing. I really wanted chocolate in the room. I called guest services and requested some more chocolate chip cookies (closest thing I could think of to chocolate) and mentioned that I was craving chocolate. More cookies were brought. They were a little light on chocolate chips, but, hey, that's to be expected. It's Cambodia. It's hot. This is not the land of chocolate. And yet. . . . That evening, when we returned from dinner, left out with the turn down of our room were a half dozen perfect and freshly made chocolates. Yup. The staff had heard what I asked for but had intuited what I really wanted. That's a level of service that is simply amazing and is very difficult to teach. Hats off to Karen Merrick the General Manager of Song Saa and her outstanding team.
