Six Senses Krabey Island
Cambodian Islands

Located on a small private island off the Cambodian coast, Six Senses Krabey Island is a haven of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

Spread over 30 acres, the exclusive resort has 40 individual villas that all come complete with private pools. Our favourite suites have to be the Oceanfront Pool Villas as their prime position adjacent to the ocean means that they offer spectacular views, especially at sunrise or sunset. Due to the island's small size, the warm seas are always just a few steps away. The design of the villas and the resort as a whole is much in keeping with the Six Senses brand in that minimalism is key and all the architecture subtly blends in with the local environment. The villas are very private, and if preferred one does not even have to leave the comfort of their own room!

In typical Six Senses style, the property's focus is its spa, which is inspired by the sacred Kbal Spean river. Spa users, or indeed anyone that wishes to adhere to a detox programme, are first encouraged to attend a health check with the resident doctor - who is trained in traditional Asian medicine - before receiving a recommended programme of rejuvenation. Of course, the spa is not the only reason to visit the resort; there are many other ways to relax and to enjoy the beautiful scenery of blue seas and lush green tropical vegetation on the island. We recommend the watersports here, from kayaking to snorkelling, as venturing into the ocean is bound to be a highlight of your stay.

Back on dry land, the horizon lap pool and sundeck area both make for ideal places to relax and sunbathe, and as the day draws to a close visit the sunset bar, where you’ll catch the impressive red glow of the exotic sunset with a cocktail crafted by the talented bar staff in hand. Later in the evening, enjoy a classic film at the outdoor cinema while the waves gently lap the shore in the background.

Sumptuous cuisine can be had at one of the two restaurants that serve Cambodian, international, and fusion cuisine; and for those with a sweet tooth, there is a complimentary and very extensive ice-cream parlour to feast at!

Six Senses Krabey Island values environmental sustainability hugely; not only does the resort has its own vegetable garden which produces much of the kitchen’s vegetables and herbs, but its water is also locally-sourced from the onsite bottling plant, using reverse osmosis to purify the water.

The town of Sihanoukville lies nearby, making it easily accessible from other parts of Cambodia, yet far enough away from the mainland to give the feeling of real seclusion and exclusivity: bliss.

Six Senses Krabey Island is the perfect place for a relaxing stay after a busy cultural tour of Cambodia, and can easily be combined with a stay in the Cardamom Mountains, just a couple of hours away by road, or Siem Reap, which is only a short flight away.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

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
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
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
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.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
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
