Sustainable Island Resorts

The Song Saa Resort is Part Nature Reserve, Part Luxurious Getaway

— February 6, 2018 — Eco
Song Saa is a luxurious private island in Cambodia that is pioneering the way for sustainable tourism. The private island is part resort and part nature reserve, and masterfully blends manmade wood structures with the encapsulating natural beauty of the island. The hotel suites and activity centers are located on one half of the island, while the nature preserve is on the other, joined by wooden footbridge. The resort furthers its sustainable efforts with the inclusion of a charitable foundation and initiatives to get guests to tend to the island's beach.

The amenities offered by Song Saa are all concreted on the beauty of the landscape and the local culture of the island. The rooms are secluded away from common area and are split into three categories: Jungle Villas are surrounded by trees and foliage, Ocean View Villas nestle up by the sea and come with a small private beach and Overwater Villas come with a glass-bottomed floor and are built just over the water. All materials used in the hotel's construction were reclaimed and local materials.
