Song Saa Private Island

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.

Honeymoon Dream Location

This hotel and island go above and beyond. The staff, food, and hotel was amazing and the perfect Honeymoon destination while traveling in Southeast Asia. I would highly recommend to anyone, especially honeymooners who want that private island, over the water bungalow feel.

A Little piece of paradise

We were fortunate to spend a few days on Song Saa to celebrate our 25 Wedding Anniversary. From the time we arrived, till the time we left our every whim was catered for. The Management & staff of Song Saa create a unique and personalized experience for each of their guests. The staff were attentive, yet unobtrusive. The food was creative and authentic to the area and the Villas and amenities are classy and yet environmentally friendly. The organised dining experiences and selection of locations were just breathtaking. The management and staff create memories, that you will carry for a lifetime. Well done & thank you to the team at Song Saa. You do an outstanding job in creating a luxury experience for each of your guests, while doing great things for the local community and environmental sustainability.
