Song Saa Cambodia: Sustainable luxury on a fantasy island
“Welcome to your new home,” says Narith Asan, pushing open the villa’s heavy wooden door and lugging our bags inside.
Then he launches into his checklist: iPod over there, espresso machine there, drinks inside this fridge right here. My wife and I try to listen, but Asan’s getting some serious competition from the view.
Beyond the sliding glass doors, past the patio and the pool, the plush lounge area and the patch of private beach, the Gulf of Thailand gleams in the midday sun.
The odd fishing boat bobs on its turquoise waters. The untouched hills of a neighboring island decorate the distant horizon. Not much else is going on.
It’s is the kind of simplicity that’s been luring people to Song Saa, a new luxury resort located on a pair of islands off the Cambodian coast.
