In Cambodia’s untouched Koh Rong Archipelago, two pristine islands lie side by side. They are known locally as Song Saa – Khmer for ‘The Sweethearts’. This eco-conscious resort welcomes its responsibility as a custodian of the surrounding wildlife and environment. Striving to adopt the Buddhist tradition of 'metta bhavana', translated into loving kindness, Song Saa Private Island pays respect to all living beings, by creating luxury that always treads lightly. Closely following three pillars of wisdom, Stillness, Healing and Blessings, Song Saa Private Island is a sanctuary of inner peace and fulfilment.
The resort spans the islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Bong, connected by a footbridge over a marine reserve built to safeguard the islands’ reefs and marine life. Presenting luxury Over-Water, Jungle and Ocean-View villas, accommodations are a testament to the island's environmental sensibilities. With the deepest respect for the natural environment, villas comprise natural materials to blend effortlessly with the sea, rainforests and local culture. Recycled timber from disused fishing boats and driftwood furniture pieces collected from local beaches and coves are key attributes of the villas, creating a sense of synergy with natural surroundings.
Dining at the resort celebrates age-old Cambodian traditions joining with modern Western techniques. Vista Bar and Restaurant overlooks a stunning seascape, and captures the essence of contemporary Cambodian cuisine. Driftwood Bar showcases a more playful menu, serving tapas-style dishes and pizza. Rustic and relaxed, it is the perfect spot for a sundowner. The nutritionally-dense spa menu is replete with superfoods, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, promoting a healthy detox. Song Saa Private Island takes a distinctive approach towards relaxation; purposely choosing not to have a designed spa 'centre', the resort instead believes that every entity on the island should inspire relaxation, from the tropical bird life, to the sea and rainforest.
Song Saa is a 3.5 hour drive from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville then a short 30 minute boat ride to the resort.
