Song Saa Islands
"Forget the Maldives, this is the really place to be…Song Saa Island Cambodia. This first private island in Cambodia has it all. In pure Maldivian style it has rustic over water villas where from the glass floor in your lounge area you can be amazed at the variety of marine life living under your feet, this comes after you have softly awoken with your first sight of the blue sky, and sea, which blends in with your infinity private pool. Also a stair on your sun deck will give you access to the sea where you can say hello to the friendly fishes."
In the sapphire waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Cambodia’s islands nestle like dazzling natural jewels.
Song Saa Private Island lies secluded in this magnificent seascape, just 30 minutes by boat from the international airport of Sihanoukville.
Most of the islands remain undeveloped – deserted oases of virgin rainforests, tropical reefs and glistening white beaches.
While Cambodia’s islands share the same dazzling qualities that made Thailand’s islands so famous, they remain a truly unspoiled paradise.
You’ll be among the first foreigners to experience this beautiful, untouched world, where rare hornbills will land
close to you. In this private intimate setting, you will lose yourself in the natural world. No intrusions. No work.
The Song Saa resort spans the two islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Bong, connected by a footbridge over protected waters. The name Song Saa means "Sweetharts" in Khmer.
Song Saa Private Island mirrors the beauty of its environment. Think intimate. Think luxurious. But above all think harmony — with all the elements of nature that make this place so special.
Twenty five exclusive over-water, beach and rainforest villas are nestled discreetly on one of the islands — the other left as a sanctuary for abundant flora and fauna including hornbills, sea eagles, old growth rainforest and rare orchids.
A five-star, over-water restaurant and lounge take full advantage of the islands' spectacular sunsets, seascapes and starry nights. Guests can explore the island's reef with the resort's resident marine biologist, wander the virgin rainforest or lie on the pure white sands that fringe turquoise waters.
The facilities of the resort: Over-water restaurant, beach bar, Champagne bar, swimming pool, gym, water-sports and dive center, children’s club, and marine education center. A wellness center and nature trails are located on an adja-cent private island, accessible via a footbridge.
The resort is unlike anything else in the archipelago, with its oversize pool villas, Khmer-inspired cooking by chef Neil Wager (who came over from Seychelles’ North Island), and many other indulgences.
Don't miss a night at the movies. Relax in your private sala with a glass of wine and bowl of popcorn while the butler sets up a large sail screen and projector for an al fresco screening of the movie of your choice.
