One of the most appealing aspects of travel to Cambodia is the fact that there are still remote and exotic locations that have yet to be exploited by mass tourism. One hotel that “fits the bill” is the Song Sea Private Island hotel in the Koh Rong Islands. This is an unforgettable eco-luxe resort that encompasses two pristine islands. Inspired by the sea and the jungle, it offers luxury and serenity while being committed to environmental sustainability.  Crafted from local materials and built by local hands so that you can relax on their secluded beach, rest easy in the spacious wooden villas, and pamper yourself at the luxurious sanctuary spa.
