Song Saa Private Island
About Song Saa Private Island
In the sapphire waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Cambodia’s islands nestle like dazzling natural jewels.
Most of the islands remain undeveloped – deserted oases of virgin rainforests, tropical reefs and glistening white beaches.
As a guest, you’ll be among the first foreigners to experience this beautiful, untouched world, where rare hornbills will land on your balcony. In this private intimate setting, you will lose yourself in the natural world. No intrusions. No work. Nothing but play.
While Cambodia’s islands share the same dazzling qualities that made Thailand’s islands so famous, they remain a truly unspoiled paradise.
If you are in search of a truly private tropical island experience, where you can forget the bustling world, few places rival Cambodia’s islands.
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’.
The resort spans the islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Bong, connected by a footbridge over a marine reserve that has been established to safeguard the islands’ reefs and marine life including dugongs, seahorses and exotic species of tropical fish.
Song Saa Private Island features 27 intimate villas, uncompromising on luxury and designed to reflect the simple beauty of the natural environment.
Guests will enjoy uninterrupted sunrise or sunset views from our over-water, beach and jungle villas, complete with private pools, and all the high-end creature comforts Robinson Crusoe could only fantasize about.
After a day on Song Saa’s protected reef, each villa promises a sanctuary where you can shower looking out over the sea, sip cocktails while watching the sunset from your private verandah, or have the resort’s chef come and treat you and your guests to fresh seafood under the stars.
In keeping with Song Saa’s ethos of luxury that treads lightly, the executive chef Neil Wager is developing a unique style of food that draws its inspiration directly from the surrounding environment.
It will make use of sustainably produced local ingredients wherever possible, celebrating the natural gifts of the islands in a delicate fusion of traditional Khmer cuisine and western influences.
But most excitingly, Song Saa’s menus will draw their inspiration from the chosen site of your dining experience. In a unique concept, they will tailor their food and beverage offerings to match the various charms of each location on the island.
The unique overwater restaurant will feature contemporary Cambodian cuisine. In Villa experiences will draw upon more traditional and homely Khmer dishes. Location dining on fishing boats, on the beach or at the beach bar will have a relaxed and rustic feel.
No matter where you choose to dine on Song Saa Private Island, each food experience will be crafted with the finest and freshest ingredients to enhance the beauty of your environment.
Song Saa Private Island - Cambodia’s first private island luxury resort – has united with ila to offer a new approach to holistic personal wellbeing, based on the principles of stillness, healing and blessings.
The Song Saa Sanctuary is comprised of a number of private treatment rooms positioned spectacularly in the island’s rainforest and along the water’s edge. It provides a sacred and gentle space where guests will rejuvenate and reconnect with inner peace and joy.
The Sanctuary reflects the essence of its environment, where nature is untouched and respected. We use locally sourced herbs and plants, as well as Song Saa’s silken sands and iron-‐rich stones, in bespoke treatments designed by ila.
