How to Get There
We knew Song Saa would be good and we were not disappointed. From the time we left the jetty on the speedboat with glass of fizz in hand to the time we sadly had to leave to come home this was a get away from it all that was something special. The meals in different locations made each dinner have a special twist and on the beach next to the waves under torchlight was extra special. Kevin the manager, with his soft Irish lilt, always came to talk to us each meal and made us feel like we were at home but in a very exotic location! All the staff always had large smiles and couldn’t wait to say hello and test their English on us and were very professional and attentive. If you can afford to come here once in your life then you should as it is a once in a lifetime experience.
My wife and I decide to o a four day holiday to Song Saa. The initial contact with the the reservation team was very good, and they do accomodate your arrival needs where possible, to get to the boat ramp for the trip out to the island. The trip out to the island is very nice and the staff on the boat are great as the first introduction into what you are about to immerse yourself into. Once on the island and after an initial greeting the staff member then takes you to your room. There is no 'reception' as such and this is a bit different.
The rooms are amazing. We stayed in a jungle room, with a great view. The beds are fantastic, the quality is amazing. The individual private pools to each villa are great. The pools are unusually colder than the actual ocean was. But certainly not detrimentally cold.
There are lots of nice touches including little scrolls inviting you to dinner at various places and also little night time turn down treats. The showers etc are fantastic. Rooms are very tidy and you certainly don't feel like there is another 'villa' next to you.
The other facilities on the island include a gym with a spectator view. The equipment is basic, but you can achieve most work outs to keep yourself going. I wouldn't really want to be in the gym with more than one other person though, but when I was there I was on my own and it was great.
The main pool area is fantastic. A large infinity pool with the ocean behind it. There is a pool bar, plenty of beds and lounges. A great place to chill out.
Vista is the main dinning/bar area. It is an amazing place to have breakfast, afternoon drinks and dinner. This is one of our favourite places. Make sure you look around as there are plenty of fish to see and sights to take in. The staff are amazing and look after you. Take the time to talk to them and find out a bit more about them, Learn the language, a thank you in Khmer I am sure goes a long way.
Snorkelling, paddle boarding and kayaking are all on offer. We certainly enjoyed the snorkelling on the local reef's. There is also the chance to do a guided snorkelling session and a donation for the environmental fund is a great way of paying it.
A few things to consider. It's expensive. Sure if money is not an issue for you then this is a great place anyway, but just be aware that it isn't cheap. Plus there is a 20% tax on almost everything.
The island does amazing things with the environment and conservation, however this is a billboard for what plastic is doing to our planet. To see plastic bottles floating around in the ocean and on the beach is heartbreaking. Be prepared for that, it kinda sucks. But again if you see it, pick it up. It's not hard. Although we can't remember where name the marine biologist from Exeter university has a passion for working at Song Saa and for the work she does that is inspirational to everyone.
The food is made to a great standard. There is lots of choices and the drinks were great. We really loved the fact that we didn't wear shoes again after the first day until we left. The washing feet ritual before going into a villa or down the boardwalk to Vista become something we enjoyed.
Although it is expensive we love what Song Saa does for the people who work there. Out of the tax 8% goes towards the works directly and 2% goes towards an event for them, as we found out a recent one was for the staff to go to Siem Reap to discover their culture heritage, that's amazing.
We will hopefully return one day, it was a magnificent time. I would highly recommend this to anyone. The staff from the general manager down lead by example and if the rest of Cambodia could take a leaf out of how Song Saa does business with the environment, the education and the Cambodian staff it could only be for a richer future in all aspects.
Song Saa is the absolute best place to gather your thoughts and recharge. The sustainable environs are only the beginning. The appointments in each villa are beyond perfection. Then there is the staff...who can not do enough for guests. I mean basically the staff anticipates your every want or need. Did I mention the spectacular sunsets and food? We were in a villa on the water... throughout the day the views were breathtaking. Ending with an amazing sunset. The food was delicious...and available all day long delivered to your villa or at one of the 2 restaurants.
My husband and I cannot say enough about our stay, which was too short.
ps As a bonus to the property...the sustainable efforts and values outlined by the foundation are so admirable and important to the world we live in.
Beautiful of natural and beloved resort on island 🌴 My beloved resort 💕 I’m work here 1 years ago , very love it and a proud for song saa have to me , I can say I love you ❤️ song saa Private Island 🌴
We landed on the perfect Island... We choose Song Saa because of the reviews and it seemed it would be the perfect end destination after our six-week travelling holiday around Asia. And it was! From the minute we arrived, I felt at "home". We chose the ocean view villa and I was so pleased we did, it was perfect gave us the private pool and the beach in one. The main areas are also perfect, we loved the Vista Restaurant and bar and loved sitting on the swing beds after our dinner to finish off with a drink in hand reviewing our day.
The icing on the cake ... was when we decided to get married on the island (not planned) and asked the guest's experience team if they could organise a wedding in 5 days! They most certainly did !! It was perfect in every way and it is going to be my happiest day ever. They even had the chef of the island make our wedding rings from teak wood and the flowers were amazing and the Monks blessing will stay in my heart forever. We had a wedding cake and everything was more than perfect. The whole Island team made our wedding day memories and the week we spent on the island is embedded in my heart.
The staff team are amazing .. from the Foundation Team Maisie and Kristy, and the guest experience team. Nanna (The Spa Manager)who arranged my flowers and the rings and did my hair and makeup!
Karen the manager who was just there making sure all was well, sadly leaving the resort that week after 3 years and you could see how passionate she was about the Island. Kevin the Drinks and Food manager who made sure our wedding night dinner on the beach was perfect and my banana wedding cake was purple! Amazing!
Maisie who took our service ... you will always be in my memories.
Maggie the head housekeeper who is a gem and I so wish I had more time to have got to know you ... You made the Villa so perfect every day. No request was too much.
The waitress Sreypov who was our "Teekok" (ice) Lady. And Keo Ratha who was our waiter a lot of the time in the Vista Restaurant you both made it so perfect always and remembered all our needs every day!
The whole Song Saa team are amazing and you will always be in my memories.
Song Saa is teh perfect destination to relax and enjoy the world beauty. Go and enjoy .. one day I hope I will be able to return to that magical place in the world. Thank you all so much xx
