Song Saa Private Island Cambodia – A Luxury Island Escape for Less
If you don’t know anything about Song Saa private island – the Cambodian islands are still something of an off-the-beaten-track destination for many – Song Saa was a first of its kind for Cambodia when it was established and is an award-winning luxury property and a foundation that supports myriad causes, from the environment and education to the arts.
Located on tiny Koh Ouen, which is part of the Koh Rong archipelago, not far from the coastal city of Sihanoukville, Song Saa private island epitomises barefoot luxury.
This is a package for those who really need some downtime (take me too, please!) although being as exclusive as it is, Song Saa private island is also an ideal hideaway for a honeymoon.
The Luxury Escapes package includes daily breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and nightly dinners – both in-villa dining and destination dining – plus unlimited non-alcoholic and alcoholic house beverages (including house wine, house beers and house spirits, cocktails), complimentary daily mini-bar, return airport and speedboat transfers, complimentary Wi-Fi and laundry.
On top of that, there’s a complimentary long tail boat tour and tour of Sala Song Saa village, complimentary snorkelling, kayaking and sailing (and a 10% discount on motorised water sports), complimentary mini-massages, including 15-minute foot ritual and 15-minute neck, head and shoulder massage (and a 10% discount on other spa treatments).
Where You’ll Stay and What You’ll Do on Song Saa Island
Each of the spacious 135sqm Jungle Villas are nestled on the shore surrounded by lush tropical greenery and have their own private 26sqm pools and timber sundeck with a canopy daybed and outdoor rain shower. Inside the villa there’s a king-sized bed, comfy sofa, big sunken bathtub, and a Bose surround sound system.
For those who want to upgrade, there are huge 200sqm Ocean View Villas with sun loungers on a private beach deck and 17sqm infinity pool with sublime sea views, along with breathtaking one-bedroom Overwater Villas with glass floor portholes with marine life vistas and a private pool – although you can also step straight into the crystal clear sea for a dip.
If you’re keen to do more than relax in the sun and swim, there are Cambodian cooking classes, a Buddhist blessing ceremony, afternoon meditation, and a complimentary long tail boat excursion to the local village of Sala Song Saa. There’s also complimentary water-sports include snorkelling, paddle-boarding and kayaking, along with scuba diving for an additional cost.
What to Eat on Song Saa Private Island
There’s fantastic food to be savoured on Song Saa private island resort. Daily à la carte menus feature freshly caught seafood from local fishing villages – from fresh sushi and sashimi to grilled fish – and gourmet dishes that showcase local Cambodian ingredients, prepared with organic produce sourced from the resort’s garden.
So you don’t get bored, Song Saa private island offers an array of unique dining destinations that keep you wondering where your table is going to be set up next – for one meal you might find yourself on a snow-white stretch of beach with your toes in the sand within splashing distance of the sea, and then next dining under a star-filled night sky with the soundtrack of waves quietly lapping against the shore.
Dining is super-flexible on Song Saa. These people appreciate that we all want a sleep-in on holidays and don’t want to be dashing to breakfast by ten. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want it, 24 hours a day, and indulge fin breakfast in bed every day if you wish with unlimited room service. In true barefoot luxury style, there’s a ‘no shoes necessary’ policy at the waterfront and beach restaurants.
For those who enjoy a tipple on holidays – and who doesn’t want to savour the sunset with a glass of white in hand? – there are unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic house beverages that can also be enjoyed whenever and wherever you want – whether you want to kick back on the beach with an icy cold beer or pour yourself a glass of prosecco from your own mini-bar (replenished daily) to toast to sunsets and indulgent holidays from your own private deck.

A resort representative meets you at the airport and then it’s just a short 30-minute drive and a scenic 45-minute speedboat trip to Song Saa private island. Helicopter transfers are also available for an extra cost and can be arranged after booking.
