Six Senses Krabey Island, Cambodia
A scenic ten-minute drive from Sihanouvkville airport, with direct flights from Siem Reap and Saigon, followed by a short boat ride and before you know it you’ve arrived in pristine, unadulterated paradise on the island of Koh Krabey. This idyllic sanctuary is the perfect antidote to a visit to the Angkor Temples and a sublime finale to a top-to-toe journey through Vietnam. Six Senses have transformed this tiny volcanic island into a gorgeous intimate jungle retreat, with 30 acres of jungle carefully landscaped to preserve the natural environment.
Six Senses Krabey Island
The 40 private pool villas have been cleverly blended into their surroundings with the use of local timbers, volcanic stone and rooftops blanketed in tropical vegetation. Interiors are contemporary with neutral tones, creating a relaxed jungle-lux vibe. Villas are designed with a spacious living area flowing out onto the generous decking, ideal for alfresco poolside dining. Bedrooms feature classic Six Senses style netting canopies and some bathrooms have outdoor showers.
The restaurant serves up a fresh breakfast buffet with a la carte selections, casual lunches and seasonally themed dinners. Snacks, refreshments and light meals are presented poolside, and it wouldn’t be a Six Senses without the obligatory ice-cream parlour complimentary for all guests! The resort’s signature dining restaurant offers authentic, mouthwatering local and regional dishes which you can also try creating yourself in a hands-on cooking class.
Making the most of the stunning sunset views, the elevated bar is the perfect place for a few sundowners before dinner, but you needn’t feel too guilty about indulging as there’s a big focus on wellness here. The spa features a menu of ancient Cambodian healing traditions and ‘multi-day rejuvenation journeys’, along with yoga workshops.
Experiences abound at Six Senses with a range of under and over-water activities, including snorkelling, diving and kayaking. Reminiscent of the Seychelles, the island’s gorgeous beach is hidden amongst giant boulders in a small cove, with crystal clear waters and a small off-shore reef. Cinema Paradiso is an outdoor cinema featuring classic movies to be enjoyed beneath a blanket of stars, and the simple observatory offers stargazing sessions with expert talks on the universe.
