How to Get There
My wife and I visited Song Saa this past week as it was a birthday gift to me from her. After arriving and feeling like I’m in paradise I decided to extend our stay. The hospitality was genuine and sincere. The food was exceptional and the villa was as private as they get. Also one can do as much or as little as you want.....It is entirely the guests choice as there isn’t a shortage of activities to choose from.
After seeing the great job that the Song Saa foundation has done, and is still doing for the community, I was inspired!!
I see That I am “reviewer 387” to give a 5 star rating and all I can say is that they are worth it in every way. Well done to Karen and her team.
I must be honest, I was quite sad the day we had to say goodbye to the staff and he island, as it felt like I was leaving family behind.
I’m really looking forward to visiting again!!!
We have stayed at many luxury hotels as a family, the experience of the hospitality at Song Saa rates amongst the very best. We were lucky and unlucky with our stay .... the unlucky bit was the weather with only one or two spells of dry and calm weather (but what can you expect when it is rainy season .... we knew that when we booked). The lucky bit was pretty much everything else .... we had booked two jungle villas and on arrival the team upgraded us to a more family friendly two room jungle villa (huge pool in terms of space). Nothing was too much trouble for the staff ... in the restaurant we had the lovely experience of often picking the waiters favourite .... with him suggesting improvements to various dishes .... Pain Perdu for breakfast with extra passion fruit is spectacular :-)
There is a nice touch at Song Saa with bottles hidden around the island with gifts for kids and adults alike .... as it rained a bit we spent some time searching and were rewarded with a cinema night and mocktails and cookies. We tried the spa and found the massage very enjoyable and of a high standard with the usual 5 star touches as you would expect. Lastly a word on the culture ..... from Karen (and her husband ... who was chief helper for our daughters in their bottle hunt) to the water sports guy and the guest experience team to the restaurant team everyone is 100% engaged with the guests ... it’s a very personal experience that is unusual in hotels .... thanks from us to Karen and the team for a lovely 5 days with you.
PS if you get a chance when you stay it’s worth reading the annual report of the collective and foundation they have a nice mission in helping the people or the archipelago
Starting with the positive, the island is gorgeous and the food was spectacular (except the Pizza, but who orders pizza on a tropical island)!
Unfortunately we had a few incidents that brought the whole 4 day stay down significantly.
Night 1. The electrics in the villa blew, repeatedly. People came to fix it but failed and it wasn’t until 24 hours later after the fourth report of the issue and escalation to the manager that anything was actually done. He did move us to a better room as an apology.
Day 2. We took out the Hobie Cat for a little sail. No safety checks or waivers, which I didn’t even realise at the time, but also no patrol or anyone watching from the beach. Normally no issue, until the forestay snapped and the mast fell off. We had a “fun” hour getting back to the island unassisted and with no sail. Winds were fairly light, the issue was the maintenance of the equipment. Only had a small cut on one hand but could’ve been way worse and the Mrs was petrified. Another trip to the management. Another apology.
Day 3. Massage time, whilst the therapist was texting on her phone for half of it.
Finally, yoga was a great idea but not well executed.
When you stay somewhere at this price point you expect a lot. Sadly it didn’t meet expectations and half our trip was spent dealing with issues rather than chilling.
From Sihanoukville airport, we were taken by car to a boat to Song Saa Private Island where we stayed July 22-25.
To reach Song Saa island, it is approx 40 minutes speed boat ride. The boat ride in part can be bumpy and rough, especially for those who are sensitive to seasickness.
The 2 bedroom ocean villa was comfortable and spacious with an infinity pool in the villa patio overlooking the ocean. Even though it’s a remote island, there are enough water activities of all sorts and hiking on a natural conservation island which is accessible on foot. It’s a pleasant easy hike through the forest. This island is a perfect escape to indulge in delicious cuisine, relaxation and fun outdoor activities. The staff are pleasant, friendly and eager.
We spent 5 blissful days on Song Saa private island at the end of a trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. From the moment we stepped onto the speedboat to the moment we boarded it again to leave all our 5 senses we more than satisfied. Not only was the food and wine sublime the dining experiences for enjoying such decadence was out of this world. It was our wedding anniversary and the team went out of their way to set up a private dinner experience on a jetty, the table laid with candles and petals, with two lovely gentleman waiting on us, nothing was too much trouble. In fact we had so many of these breathtaking experience I could almost write a small novel. Our villa with its own pool and own "little beach" was stunning and icing on the cake was our own wine fridge fully stocked with full on room service so on the days we didn't want to leave our private paradise there was no need to. The island is so serene we felt like we were floating around, recommend taking a walk over to the little island adjoining we felt like we were the only people in the world. OH and did mention the gym, best treadmill I have ever been on looking out at the ocean with the perfect music playing could have stayed in there for longer but too much else to do! I could go on and on but to sum it up Song Saa is all about the senses, drink it all through sight, sound, touch, taste and smell! Song Saa is a stunning location with thoughtfully created buildings but the best part of all is the people that manage Song Saa and their team. A big thank you to Karen and Kevin who made our experience in this little piece of paradise a memory for us that will last for the rest of our lives. One day we will return until then we will hold on to our memories!
