New on the Cambodian coast: Song Saa Resort


CAMBODIA 2 Bedroom Over Water Villas
December welcomes the opening of the magnificently eco-luxe Song Saa Resort on the Cambodian coast, Southeast Asia’s first over-water stilted villas designed in very Maldives-esque style. We are excited by it because it is ultra-stylish and it offers people a new and interesting alternative to Thailand as a sexy beach break. This ground-breaking luxury villa resort is also as environmentally friendly as they come and very concerned with protecting the virgin rainforests, tropical reefs and glistening white beaches of this area.

Thirty minutes by boat from the southern coast of Cambodia, Song Saa Private Island is extremely secluded with the majority of its surrounding islands completely deserted, but is still accessible by plane from Siem Reap. The design is very much focused around luxury, sustainability and is inspired by Cambodian fishing villages with features such as thatch roofs and use of drift wood.

There are 25 villas all with their own private pool and have ocean views either on the hill, on the beach or over the water and all come with the amenities you would expect, outdoor showers and day beds. You can choose to dine anywhere on the island with 48hours notice or you can eat in their world class restaurant. Diving has been dramatically improved since they restored the coral, or you can go sailing, kayaking or snorkeling. With more than 20 deserted islands close by, opportunities for offshore adventure also abound.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
