Offering a slice of paradise, this private island resort is ideal for a romantic, nature-centric getaway.
Unlike many Thai islands, the Cambodian islands in the Gulf of Thailand are undiscovered and unspoiled — and Song Saa intends to keep it that way. Inhabiting two islands connected by a footbridge over a marine reserve established by the resort, Song Saa is only 30 minutes by boat from Sihanoukville, but it feels as if it's in another world. Jungle- and sea-view villas are constructed from reclaimed driftwood and fishing boat timber, and the setting is so tranquil you might wake to find a rare hornbill hanging out on your balcony. Guests can enjoy a spa nestled in the rainforest, and a restaurant and lounge sitting just offshore, embraced by the sea. Song Saa employs a full-time marine biologist and conservation staff members, and also offers plenty in the way of unique resort activities, from sunrise yoga to Buddhist temple ceremonies.
