Beach resorts in Cambodia have to date largely been confined to rather sprawling stretches of development along the coast around Sihanoukville. Six Senses Krabey Island breaks the mould, bringing the brand’s legendary rustic-chic spa experience to a tropical island fringed with tropical beaches. The resort is easily reached by 15-minute boat ride from its private jetty on the mainland, which in turn is just 20 minutes from Sihanoukville Airport There are direct flights from Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City.
Come for a week or longer to completely unwind or stay for a few nights to relax after a journey through Cambodia which might also include the temples of Angkor, the jungles of the Cardamoms and the bustling, characterful city of Phnom Penh. You could also combine a stay here with a holiday in Vietnam. Our specialists would be delighted to advise on an itinerary designed around your interests.
Six categories of eco-friendly villa range from one-bedroom pool villas - each with large living areas, floor to ceiling windows taking in tropical vistas, and sundecks with pools - through to the generously-proportioned duplex Oceanfront Two-bedroom Pool Villas and The Beach Retreat, a single-level sanctuary, with two private villas suitable for up to four guests sharing a private beach, hammocks and pool. All are air-conditioned, with WiFi and Bluetooth.
