Destinations / Asia

Following arrival at Sihanoukville Port in Cambodia, guests are whisked away via speedboat for a 45-minute ride to the beautiful private island of Song Saa Private Island. A haven of sustainable luxury, the resort embraces the Buddhist tradition of metta bhavana or loving kindness in the undiscovered beauty of Cambodia’s Koh Rong archipelago. The resort spans the islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Bong, connected by a footbridge over Cambodia’s first Marine Reserve to safeguard the islands’ reefs and marine life.

 

Offering stunning sunset views of the Gulf of Thailand, Song Saa offers the ultimate indulgence as well as utmost privacy. With a strong commitment to environmental and community programs, guests can take comfort that their footprint will be minimal while staying at the island paradise. Its design includes energy-efficient thatched roofing along with sandstone reclaimed from the villa foundation, as well as bespoke, local, hand-crafted furniture and fixtures seen throughout the resort. The Song Saa Foundation is committed to the conservation of the surrounding area and community programs.

 

Built with sustainable materials, its 24 luxury, overwater, jungle- and ocean-view villas feature open floorplans, a private pool and an outdoor deck (and many other amenities) to allow guests to bask in the stunning views. Enjoy the ultimate overwater experience in the expansive royal villa for prime off-the-grid seclusion.

Inspired by the local environment, dining at Song Saa Private Island is a sumptuous experience. Just off the island’s shoreline, Vista Overwater Restaurant & Lounge is a great space to fully be surrounded (literally by the house reef and marine reserve) by the wonders and bounty of the island and to enjoy contemporary Western and Cambodian cuisine. Enjoy natural juices, cocktails and more at the Lounge while the sounds of the archipelago drift like music around you on the open-air deck or bar area.

 

Harmony, sustainability and barefoot luxury are themes woven into all aspects of the resort, especially the spa, with treatments designed to encourage philosophies of stillness, healing and blessings.

 

Do as much or as little as you like, from Foundation activity tours to wellbeing and celebration curation to wellness retreats and more. To book your island getaway and read about the resort’s all-inclusive package, click here.
