Song Saa

Koh Rong | Super Deluxe

After opening in late 2011, the Song Saa immediately made ripples in the otherwise tranquil waters off Cambodia's south coast, not to mention amongst its Indochinese neighbours, who aren't used to such high-end competition from the jungle-covered little country in their midst.

The super-deluxe resort - the first of its kind in Cambodia - is hidden on the untouched Koh Rong Archipelago, just 60 minutes by speedboat from considerably more hectic Sihanoukville, one of Cambodia's busiest beaches.

The resort consists of just 27 idyllic villas, either amidst the jungle canopy, over water, or on your own private beach. Each offers a level of luxury and complete serenity more often associated with a Maldivian island, but with the deep culture and unaffected character that makes Cambodia so attractive. The resort's overall amenities are spectacular - the sunrise infinity pool is almost unworldly - but it’s the luxurious villas that real spark one's imagination. Employing recycled woods and materials from the resort's natural surroundings (including unusable old fishing vessels, purchased from their owners, who could thus afford to replace their craft), the rooms are a heavenly blend of rustic charm and modern-chic. We're very excited about this place; if Indochina contains more stylish accommodation, we've yet to find it.

Furnishings are plush, amenities right at the top end, and the views are world class. Each villa has a well-sized private pool and dual bathroom with both indoor and outdoor bathing options. The villas are extremely spacious, too; you could easily fail to emerge for weeks on end, only reappearing to reacquaint yourself with the island's tranquil beaches. The resort's eco-credentials remain at the forefront of the project, with several full time specialists employed to monitor and develop the marine reserve surrounding the island. Considerable work is also undertaken to support nearby fishing villages and the livelihoods of local communities.

We Say
Considering its five star status and eye-popping rates, Song Saa is wonderfully unpretentious. As you're a captive audience it's worth considering the All-Inclusive option.
