Song Saa is a beautiful eco resort that sits across the islands of Koh Bong and Koh Ouen, affectionately known as the Sweetheart Islands. Reached by a 45-minute speedboat journey from the mainland, Song Saa is the perfect place to completely unwind and explore southern Cambodia’s stunning coastline.
The resort was built with sustainability in mind, with reclaimed timber and other materials from the mainland used in its construction. Salvaged wood from old fishing boats and factory yards was turned into decking and beams, oil drums became lamps, and weathered driftwood was crafted into beautiful pieces of furniture.
24 luxury pool villas are scatted across the island, some nestled within the rainforest along the shoreline and others perched over the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Thailand. The open-plan design of the villas creates a real sense of space and light and the natural decor and design compliments the surrounding environment. For the ultimate exclusive escape, the two-bedroom Royal Villa is reached by private boat and has its own pool, kitchen and indoor dining space for up to 12.
Locally caught seafood and seasonal fruits and vegetables are used to create delicious Khmer cuisine at the overwater Vista Restaurant. Driftwood Bar on the beach is the perfect place to grab a crisp beer or muddled mojito and enjoy a wood-fired pizza or some tapas as the sun goes down.
Dotted around the resort are little sanctuaries where you can indulge in a spa treatment surrounded by nature. There is also a large infinity pool, a fitenss centre and yoga sessions for those that like to keep active while away.
You are surrounded by white sandy beaches and crystal clear water, so grab a snorkelling mask, a paddleboard or a kayak and explore. Or, take to the rainforest trails and discover the native plants and wildlife.
