Song Saa Private Island in Cambodia, with 27 luxury jungle, overwater and ocean-view villas, has been welcomed into the exclusive Virtuoso® travel network. The first private island resort in Cambodia is located in the pristine Koh Rong Archipelago and has set new standards for luxury and sustainability for the region.
The luxury always-inclusive island getaway showcases a largely undiscovered part of Cambodia, seamlessly blending interior spaces with the panoramic natural beauty of the islands. Inspired in design by the Cambodian fishing villages found throughout the Koh Rong Archipelago, the villas feature unique pieces of art, bespoke furniture made by local artisans from driftwood collected on the islands' beaches, private pools and every comfort one would expect of a Virtuoso-affiliated resort.
At the center of the resort is the breathtaking Vista Restaurant & Lounge, spectacularly positioned over the ocean to take in dramatic sunsets, seascapes and starry evenings. The menu features a delicate fusion of traditional Khmer and western cuisines with locally sourced fish and produce, and dishes based on the five elements of Salt, Heat, Raw, Scent, and Sweet.
The property has an extensive sustainability program that aims to protect the surrounding natural environment, while simultaneously fulfilling the livelihood needs of local communities as well as the aspirations and desires of guests.
The enclave is located just 35 minutes by boat from the port of Sihanoukville, which is about 115 miles southwest of the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh. Song Saa Private Island also operates four weekly return services by helicopter between Song Saa and Phnom Penh, which harbors the closest main airport to the island. Most of the islands in this area remain undeveloped: a deserted oasis of virgin rain forests, tropics reefs and glistening white beaches.
Guests who book through their Virtuoso travel advisor will enjoy special amenities including an upgrade upon arrival subject to availability, a complimentary 50-minute massage for up to two guests per stay, and one Five Mile Beach excursion for two, once per stay.
