When you work in travel for a long time you can get a little cynical about luxury hotels and when the press release came out for Song Saa private island a few years ago, dare I say I may have just gone “here we go another luxury pool villa hotel in SE Asia!” BUT here we are a few years later, and like many travel consultants and guests across the world we all know that Song Saa is completely unique and a very special place. I have previously blogged about my incredible stay there (which you can read here), so i’m going to keep it short on this one…
Song Saa have just released a very special offer which is stay for 4 nights and pay for only 2. This is valid during the green season which is right now, between July and September.
So a little bit about Song Saa private island:
- 27 beautifully designed private villas, all with their own pools.
- An ‘always included’ policy in the room cost so everything that passes your lips is included. Plus non-motorised watersports, all laundry, wifi, so if you want a glass of port in the middle of night, a movie set up in your room with snacks and popcorn or a celebratory dinner in one of the private dining areas with unlimited drinks – it’s all included!
- Strong sustainability policy, with on sight marine biologists, all villas built from reclaimed materials and as little environment impact as possible.
- A 45 minute speed boat ride from Sinhoukville, which is accessed by road from Phnom Penh (3 hours) or a flight from Siem Reap (1 hour)
Many people will be put off by the green season in Cambodia, but what does it really mean? The chances are it will probably rain, but in short sharp showers which will unlikely disturb your day too much, the climate will change quickly (a lot like it does in the UK summer!) and it will be humid all day. It is called the green season for a reason, and the vegetation is very lush, waterfalls look incredible and the communities are thriving because they have more money from selling crops and enjoy the rain after longs spells of drought.
I do love talking about SE Asia, and Cambodia especially so feel free to give me a call if you just want some general advice.
Lots of information on our website too.
