Barefoot luxury in the secluded backcountry of Cambodia: what might sound like a contradiction in terms is also an incredibly enriching experience.


The story behind this amazing resort not only sounds like a fairytale; it is a fairytale that actually came true. On their honeymoon in Cambodia, Australians Melita and Rory discovered two hidden gems in the Gulf of Thailand. Entranced by the magnificent setting, the couple purchased the islands from a fisherman. With the greatest respect for the stunning natural environment, they built a resort in perfect harmony with its surroundings. Song Saa combines barefoot freedom with every imaginable amenity a luxury hideaway could offer. Melita and Rory brought their dream to life, and now their foundation is helping locals in the region realize their dreams. The causes they support include schools, local fishing communities, and a marine conservation program.

The luxury villas are made of natural, lovingly selected materials and feature one or two bed rooms, a comfortable living room, and sunny outdoor deck with an ocean view. Partake of the first-rate Western and Cambodian fare offered in the restaurant, or sip a delicious cocktail or glass of wine while enjoying the mild ocean breezes in the lounge. And while we are on the topic of ocean breezes, a special grill party on the beach is another delightful option.
