Krabey Island is nestled on a 30-acre tropical island off the coast of Cambodia, an idyllic retreat surrounded by the glittering waters of the Gulf of Thailand. This resort takes great pride in ensuring its sustainability practices, making use of organic produce grown on the grounds, offering an on-island bottling plant with clean drinking water, engaging and supporting local community programmes, along with marine conservation and education projects.
Guests will arrive at the mainland reception before a short water transfer to the island. There’re 40 private pool villas, which blend seamlessly into the surroundings without compromising on luxury. Spacious interiors, beautiful en-suite bathrooms and living rooms with a day bed offer ultimate comfort, and a soft, neutral colour scheme works with the natural environment. Each villa opens out onto a decking area with a private plunge pool.
The food at Krabey Island is a real highlight. Aha Restaurant offers seasonal pan-Asian and western cuisine while the Treehouse Restaurant hidden among the trees takes inspiration from Khmer, South East Asian and Mediterranean cooking. The Sunset Bar is perched above the ocean, treating guests to sweeping views over the gulf. And when you need to cool off, there’s an ice-cream parlour serving home-made gelato and sorbet.
When you want to simply unwind, indulge in a treatment at the spa where you can learn about the ingredients and create your own products at the Alchemy Bar. There’s also a gym and a beautiful swimming pool.
There’s so much to do while staying at Krabey from snorkelling and kayaking to island hopping and cooking classes. They even have their own outdoor cinema where you can watch classic films under a starry night sky.
Butterfly breeding programme and hornbill conservation programme
As a result of sustainable planning, the resort blends into the natural vegetation, creating an environment that has become a paradise for birds and butterflies. So far, the butterfly breeding programme has recorded 23 species and they are now initiating a hornbill conservation program and beekeeping project.
Youth development programme
This resort contributes to AllKids, a non-profit organisation registered in Cambodia. Its main objective is to support and educate disadvantaged children from nearby villages through scholarships, student transport and financial assistance for equipment.
Upskilling local families
Six Senses Krabey Island also assists nearby families with organic agricultural practices by providing them with the knowledge and skills to farm organic produce that the resort will purchase directly from them, thereby increasing their financial stability.
On-island bottling plant
All Six Senses resorts produce still and sparkling drinking water for guests and hosts to minimise the carbon footprint that results from the packaging and transport of water.
Coral reef restoration
Krabey Island is blessed with coral reefs around the island creating an opportunity for reef conservation and much richer underwater experiences. Based on a survey and recommendations by experts in 2017, the resort’s detailed and controlled conservation programme in the future will enhance the quality of the coral reef and increase its density, population and protection.
