Luxury, serenity and a deep connection with the environment

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."

When you visit - look holistically at the concept

Hong Kong, China

We have been to Song Saa many times over the last 8 years, and never been disappointed. Song Saa is a complex structure, where a massive investment in time and funds go towards sustainable development of the area, the reefs, the people and the immediate environment and surrounding villages. As a 5* resort, at over USD 1k per night if all you are looking for is a Six Senses or Aman experience, you may not enjoy the experience to the full, as there will be shortcomings. If however, you want to experience villas that are beautifully designed, using natural and recycled wood materials, staff who are keen to express all they have learned and a desire to develop, a coral reef that is being preserved and the work that the foundation to raise the standard of people’s lives that would have been only described as abject poverty compared to ‘western standards’ - then you will truly enjoy Song Saa for what it is; an absolutely beautiful location, managed by people who really care. The staff are spectacular in their desire to care for the guests, and the GM Karen is passionate about ensuring the guests are getting the maximum out of their holiday; and customising and bespoke requests are always listened to if do-able, they will certainly try. Thoroughly recommend, and encourage people to go and visit the Discovery Centre and Foundation when on Island to better understand what they Developers had in mind when creating the concept.

Great Getaway

It's Maldives in Cambodia! I would recommend full all-in package purchase with all you can eat and drink. It is perfect to explore the lovely part of life... getting away from the fake life we all are suffering. It's simply great new experience!
