Opened in 2012, Song Saa Private Island is an award-winning luxury eco-resort, located within the Koh Rong Archipelago, off the south coast of Cambodia and surrounded by an extensive marine reserve. The resort has pioneered conservation based luxury tourism in Cambodia and the landscape planning and design is based on a deep connection with the environment and preservation of an ecologically important island ecosystem. 24 luxury jungle, ocean view and overwater villas have been carefully designed, located and constructed, to be in complete harmony with nature. The resort draws its inspiration from the Cambodian fishing villages found throughout the archipelago. Only recycled and reclaimed timber, local materials and indigenous plant species, in keeping with the philosophy of sustainability and respect for the natural environment, have been used throughout the resort.
