Song Saa Private Island
Scale of 90-100
This idyllic family-owned resort, a 45-minute speedboat ride from Sihanoukville on Cambodia’s west coast, is set on a desert island in the pristine Koh Rong Archipelago. The 24 luxurious villas include 2,150-square-foot Ocean View Villas, which feature soaring thatched ceilings, local art and sunken seating areas, plus wooden decks offering daybeds, outdoor showers and private infinity pools. The nine Jungle Villas afford views of the surrounding islands, while eight Overwater Villas offer direct access to the beach from private balconies. The hotel's two restaurants include the waterside Driftwood Bar for a tapas-style menu. Other on-site amenities include a private beach and a large swimming pool. Wellness programs, cultural explorations including traditional blessing ceremonies led by local Buddhist monks, spa treatments and a myriad of water sports can also be booked.

The feeling of being utterly removed from the world and sequestered on an idyllic desert island.
The long drive from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville — for which we engaged a chauffeur — is not for nervous passengers.
Good to Know
For those who don’t want to drive, a helicopter transfer can be arranged. Since April 2015, domestic flights have been available from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville airport, from where it is a 20-minute drive to the port.
