Perhaps Cambodia is mostly known for its rich culture, its tragic history (Khmer Rouge) and its ancient temple complex, Angkor Wat. But have you ever imagined that you could also experience a luxurious and relaxing beach vacation in the country? The truth is it’s very much possible to have that epic Cambodian island getaway, which is usually offered by neighboring country Thailand. And one of the premier spots to enjoy such a great vacation is pristine Song Saa Private Island.
Situated in the country’s Koh Rong archipelago, Song Saa actually occupies two small islands, which are linked to each other by a footbridge. These islets are locally referred to Soong Saa, which means “The Sweethearts” in the Khmer language. Thus, the romantic image of crossing a bridge in the middle of the shimmering clear sea, which is also a protected marine reserve, is reason enough to consider a stay at this unique resort!
