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.

"The reefs around Song Saa are great for snorkelling with plenty of colourful marine life. If snorkelling isn't your thing you can also try kayaking or on dry land there are optional cooking classes, village tours and island safaris."

Once in a Lifetime Experience!

United States

Wow, what an exquisite experience...not even sure where to start but since everyone's reviews are so so positive, I'll try to be practical: 1. All inclusive or B&B? We opted for the Bed and Breakfast option- if you are not a huge eater (for us a full breakfast- and it is huge...- and full dinner are really more than enough and we don't usually snack so much. We like a glass of wine at dinner, but otherwise are not huge alcohol drinkers. The resort is VERY generous and mineral water and soda water are served complimentary at the restaurants and everywhere else (and that's our prefered beverage during the day anyway). So if you are like us, B&B is more than enough and is far cheaper than going all inclusive. We also booked via mr and mrs smith and had a 35% discount on anything we ordered so, definitely check it out... 2. Villas- this resort is really one of the most beautiful we've experienced (and we are quite the Luxury travellers). We chose the jungle villa since it has a beautifull view from the top of the hill and is completely private. The villas are very spacious with indoor and outdoor sitting area, and are very private. Closet and huge and comfortable beds and constant clean/drinking water supply. Bathroom area is huge and everything spotless. 3. Service- well, really cant say enough, but just a little experience we had - after kayaking around the island, a staff member was waiting for us at the beach- when we told him proudly we went around the island he told us he knew because he ran around the island and kept eye contact in case we capsize so they can send the speed boat to pick us up immediately...now that is what I call service.... 4. Take a trip up to the local community of Prek Svay on Koh Rong with the community coordinator, the Song Saa foundation does very important work with the locals and it is really great to see. 5. We had a complimentary massage through mrandmrssmith- the spa is amazing, definitely get a massage if you can, it is excellent and very very professional. 6. Beach- yes the white sandy beach is not big ,but it is beautiful, very well groomed and since there are only 24 villas and limited number of guests, we were usually there on our own... In summary, this was really a vacation to remember, the food, scenery, privacy, service, everything was top notch. Yes it is expensive, but if you manage your choices you can lower the costs and I must say, now that it is over, I only remember the amazing stay and will probably remember it for a very long time- really a once in a lifetime experience.
