Cambodia may make you instantly conjure up images of the historic temples of Angkor Wat, but Song Saa might just make you fantasise about private island holidays from now on. A 35-minute boat ride from the seaside town of Sihanouk, the natural oasis spans the two unspoilt islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Rong, and is connected by a footbridge that crosses over a magnificent stretch of bright turquoise waters.
Thatched stone villas consisting of 27 suites are adorned with timber beams, marble walls and a private infinity pool. All villas are built from sustainable materials and are either sitting above the glorious blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand, or perched amongst the trees of the verdant rainforest. In between snorkelling, hiking and indulging in pampering spa treatments in this eco-luxe resort, you can simply rest and relax in your four-poster bed, while Moroccan lanterns decorate your view of the sea.
