Alila Villas Koh Russey
Cambodian Islands

Chic, exotic and contemporary, Alila Villas Koh Russey is a luxurious haven in the Koh Rong archipelago in southern Cambodia. With uninterrupted views of the crystalline Gulf of Thailand and over one kilometre of pristine beach, this really is the remote island getaway modern travellers are in search for.

Clean and beautifully sleek lines, the hotel’s design is from the brainchild of Singaporean architect Chioh-Hui Goh, with the aim to harmonise the island’s surroundings, with the lush green jungle as its backdrop. This paradise resort comprises of 63 rooms, including 13 beach villas, each one is very open planned, allowing plenty of space in which to unwind. Each room is privately tucked away with outdoor seating areas which have beautiful views over the junglescape and the glittering bay beyond. The rooms are simply decorated, with cool muted tones and gossamer drapes which flutter lightly in the sea breeze. The en-suite bathrooms are spacious and come equipped with organic amenities and double vanities. The beach villas have either one or two bedrooms and provide the ultimate escape, with spacious outdoor seating and a private pool, right on the beach - one need never leave their own private sanctuary.

There are two restaurants; the Horizon is the poolside formal dining restaurant, serving fine cuisine mainly with a French focus, along with some Asian and Italian flavours, and the Beach Shack, a slightly more casual spot on the beach which serves more authentic Khmer food, as well as freshly-caught seafood grills. The chef uses ingredients that are freshly picked straight from the hotel’s organic garden, and one can also often find the daily-catch on the menu too. Breakfast is also served at the Horizon and offers a daily changing a-la-carte menu, serving everything from freshly baked pastries to huevos rancheros.

The beach stretches over one kilometre long, and the soft sand is gently lapped by the calm gin-clear waters, sheltered by the natural curve of the lagoon. Sadly, there is an issue with plastic being washed up on the shore, but the hotel makes a fantastic effort in clearing the beach everyday – guests can also help with the beach clean-up if they wish – and guests will not find single use plastic in the hotel, from biodegradable paper straws to glass water bottles and refillable bathroom amenities. It is certainly refreshing to see such great ecological steps being made. There are plenty of complimentary activities to enjoy the beautiful beach however, such as kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling, or one can relax in the swaying beach hammock, listening to the sounds of the waves. There is also a beach front infinity pool, as well as a spa, daily morning yoga and a well-equipped gym.

Alila Villas is located on the tropical island of Koh Russey, just 20-minutes from Sihanoukville airport by boat and private car, and is the perfect spot to begin or end a tailor-made itinerary to Cambodia.

Client Testimonials

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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan 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
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
