Song Saa was Andrew Harper's 2016 Hideaway of the year. It has only gotten better since then. This place is magical. We had a one room over water suite. It was luxurious, stylish and impeccible, but thankfully missing the plastic Disneyland quality so many resorts imbude. Next

Dear Guest, you are very kind and thank you for the review and for the kind words that you think it is better now than the much coveted award from Andrew Harpers 2016 - Hideaway of the year!... we are very humbled. I am delighted you wish to come back and especially to try one of the Ocean view villas that look out on the water and have sunrise view - very nice to have the contrast. We are happy to hear that you could be as adventurous as you wanted, enjoying the various on/under water activities as well as the dry land ones... sounds like you had good intentions but decided to relax instead... which I think many of our guests both also enjoy and should also do... life it too hectic, so it's good to recharge your batteries and enjoy a little of what Cambodia has to offer. With sincere thanks and warmest regards for 2019! Karen and the island family

The title says it all - this is the most amazing place I've ever stayed. We are so thankful to have spent part of our honeymoon here. We were greeted at the Sihanouk Airport (KOS) and driven to a marina where one of the resort's boats picked us up. We were fortunate to be the

Dear Guest, our humblest thanks for choosing not only us abut Cambodia as part of your honeymoon destination... it truly is wonderful to be part of your life story and I am very glad you felt like you almost had your very own private island! We try to gently nudge guests in different directions where possible to try different experiences so they are part of your vacation memories and glad to hear this was achieved by the teams throughout your stay. You raised a good point about All Inclusive and Villa and Breakfast options and you are right, if you like to have various alcoholic drinks throughout the day on holiday or if part of your enjoyment is partaking in the various food options throughout the day then I would also suggest an all inclusive meal plan. If your preference is to have a good breakfast, skip lunch and be free and easy for dinner with an occasional alcoholic beverage then, Villa and Breakfast is likely the best choice. Thank you for considering coming back to spend an anniversary with us in the future, the team would be delighted to look after you again... until then, we never say goodbye at Song Saa... only "see you soon". with gratitude, Karen and the Song Saa island family

Dear Guest, we certainly do remember you and I am so delighted that your stay seems to be everything you wanted... and more! Kev, our Executive Assistant Manager in charge of Food and Beverage has done a great job enhancing the wine and beverage lists and is always working on new innovations with the team and also Jeremy, our Executive Chef. We hope we can continue to surprise and delight you also with the new offerings planned for Driftwood also on your next visit. There is something magical about Song Saa... even for us, we feel it daily, as I am sure the co-founders did when creating it. I am glad that you continue to feel relaxed and we look forward to welcoming you back when you next need it. until then, please keep connected to us either in person or by social media. With kindness and gratitude for choosing to stay with us on your Cambodian adventure Karen and the island family.

Visited for 3 nights with family. The staff was really friendly and was very responsive to our individual needs as well as trying to suggest things to do. Atmosphere was very relaxing. Snorkelling and pool was fun. Though it is not TOP destination for snorkelling. Would

Dear Guest, many thanks for taking the time to write the review and we are all very pleased you enjoyed your time on the island and that the team were helpful in any way they could be. It's always challenging with small children and trying to create the right balance in terms of interaction and safety when on an island, so I am very pleased the 'Playhouse" and the team managed to keep the children entertained... I also hope they took part in the scavenger hunts and search for pirate bottles - all part of our Robinson Crusoe style. We are very happy you mentioned the snorkelling, although small and compact, the house reef just of shore was decimated and almost wiped out before the co-founders built Song Saa and the Song Saa Foundation was created to continue the protection of the marine reserve in the archipelago and primarily educate the impact of overfishing in the area...which even in my three year tenure, I have seen huge growth and improvement... hopefully one day with this protection and carefully managed improvements by the SS Foundation, we can continue to see the reefs around the archipelago re-energise and thrive to international marine standards... this is our dream and goal. We are so very grateful for you taking the time to write the review and give valuable feedback about your stay we are humbled. with gratitude Karen and the island family

I came here last year and cannot compliment the staff, the villa, the island in general, the gorgeous waters and the elements enough! We went during what we were told was their rainy season May (11-14th specific dates) - it rained during the early hours but cleared up every

Dear Guest, thank you... we remember you well and thank you for taking the time to write the review. Song Saa is small and I often say you can be as active or as quiet as you wish... there is a small corner of the island for everyone. Rainy Season (or Green Season as we call it here - for obvious reasons) is a magical time on the island... and I am so glad you raised the point about the rain... as long as you know there is a chance of rain and it is not a deal breaker for your vacation then this is a fantastic time of year to visit the property... everything begins to grow and emerge and the colours and light throughout the island is otherworldly. Being Scottish the rain does not bother me so much (given my childhood vacations of rainy days out and picnics inside the car) and there is very little that can not be done in this type of weather...it's all a matter of mindset. After nearly three years at Song Saa I can honestly say that the rain here is less than in other island locations and properties I have operated. Thank you for sharing your experience and we look forward to welcoming you home. Our best wishes for the new year Karen and the island family

How deep was the water off the over water bungalows?
Dear prospective guest, apologies for the delayed response... I missed your request due to travel. Thats a great question and it really depends on the tides... at the most shallow it can be one meter (approx) and at it's deepest/season at high tide around 5 meters. I hope this helps Karen and the island team

Dear prospective Guest, Many thanks for the question and to clarify; yes we offer a range of complimentary activities; morning group yoga, access to the House Reef with snorkel gear as well as unlimited access to the Nature Reserve Island to name but a few. We also have a selection of experiences to add on to your stay should you wish and can be shared or private experiences. These would include cooking classes, scuba diving, spa sanctuary experiences to name but a few. Hope to see you soon on the island and if there are specifics you wish to take part in. Our Reservations team will be happy to guide you prior to arrival or Guest Experience team on the island.

Dear Robert, many thanks for reaching out and we are delighted you will be visiting us. We have our own house reef directly offshore, which is protected as part of the marine reserve and there are several leisure dive spots a boat ride away. As you mentioned, if you have not dived in a while you will need to do a check dive and our Dive Master will arrange this for you by prior request. We always advise guests whom wish to dive to make a firm reservation for this activity to avoid disapointment as we are a small operation and there are so many other water activities we also host. Please reach out to the reservations team whom made your booking as they will be only too happy to forward you our Scuba Diving information and make the reservations for you. We look forward to seeing you soon Karen and the island team

How often will the boat leave the island to get you to the airport
Dear prospective Guest, we have two daily arrivals and two daily departures which can be tailored slightly once we know the incoming and outgoing guests travel arrangements. We have to be a little flexible as we have guests coming in from international destinations such as Vietnam,Malaysia and Hong Kong via Sihanoukville as well as from Siem Reap (an seasonally Phnom Penh). We also have clients driving down from Phnom Penh or overland from other cities within the Kingdom so we try to be as flexible as we can. I hope this information helps. Warm regards, Karen.
