Song Saa Private Island, Koh Rong
- Secluded eco-luxury
- Private pools
You’ll reach the exclusive private island resort of Song Saa by speed boat. The resort is straddled across the islands of Koh Bong and Koh Ouen and as you approach, you’ll get those butterflies that tells you you’re arriving somewhere special.
The sprawling, secluded villas are at ease with their natural environment. A blend of stone, reclaimed wood and marble have been expertly crafted to create these quietly luxurious abodes, and they’re tastefully, skilfully and thoughtfully decorated. Your private pool and sunken tub beckon for long soaks overlooking the ocean, although the expansive daybed will be vying for your time, too.
Snorkelling is a must-do, as is kayaking through the mangroves. Or step aboard Song Saa’s private yacht for a tour around the archipelago, stopping for a beach picnic. When the sun sets, the bioluminescent plankton comes out to play, so be sure to return to the water to witness this otherworldly display.
The delicious food from the resort’s two excellent restaurants is locally and sustainably sourced. Although the restaurants provide a wonderful ambiance, you can choose to dine wherever you like throughout the resort, perhaps on the beach, or by the pool, or back in your heavenly villa. Nothing is too much trouble for the obliging staff here.
Song Saa has an impressive and unwavering eco stance, both in terms of their impact on the environment and how they support their local community.
