Song Saa Private Island

Song Saa Private Island Resort is located in the warm sapphire waters of the Gulf of Thailand amongst 61 islands, most of which remain completely undeveloped and many are deserted. Song Saa Private Island has undergone five years of restoration and rejuvenation of its flora, fauna and coral to bring everything back to its natural beauty. It is located on Koh Ouen and Koh Bong – two small adjacent islands in the Koh Rong archipelago that are a 45-minute boat ride from Sihanoukville or a 1-hour flight from Siem Reap. The hotel stands as proof that Cambodia does have world-class beaches and luxury hotels.

Song Saa makes every effort to work in tandem with its environment and maximise its sustainability: restaurants cater seasonal produce, staff are predominantly local, and the hotel encourages guests to remove their shoes and enjoy “barefoot luxury”. Activities also take advantage of the idyllic tropical surroundings. Guests can discover local wildlife and fauna through a guided island safari, try their hand at sea kayaking or get a glimpse into the underwater ecosystem through snorkelling off the island shores. For those interested in local culture, the hotel also offers excursions to a local village on a neighbouring island.

This desire to protect and celebrate their environment also emerges through their wellness programs. Alongside yoga and meditation, the resort offers more niche rituals that place nature at centre stage; from marine flora immersion experiences to rain forest facials and massages under the Cambodian night sky. Wellness programs are tailored to guests needs and are available for a length of five or seven days.

In terms of dining, guests will not find their tastes limited by the remote island location. For traditional Khmer cuisine alongside a quirky mix of Western comfort dishes and stunning sea views, head for the Vista Bar – the Samlor Koko dish here is a favourite of James’ and not to be missed! For lighter meals and a healthy array of sun-downer options, however, we recommend the island’s ‘Driftwood’ bar; located on the island’s stretching white sand beach, it is an idyllic setting to while away an evening sipping on Brut and taking in the incandescent night sky. Private island dinners as well as champagne cruises can also be arranged.

Song Saa remains one of our favourite beach destinations and is perfect for everyone from honeymooners to families.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
Bill Bryson

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
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 have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, 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’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, 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
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
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
