First of all I’d like to thank you for all your kind comments, email and tweets about The Travel Files! I appreciate that many of you took the time to send in their favorite hotels and hot spots. Today’s post features a resort that is not open yet. The Song Saa Private Island in Cambodia’s untouched Koh Rong Archipelago is a very exclusive and luxurious resort that is due to open in late 2011. It will feature 27 luxury overwater, rainforest and beach villas built with sustainable materials and with the deepest respect for the natural environment.

Song Saa Private Island is as seductive as the name implies. Think intimate. Think luxurious. But above all think harmony – with all the elements of nature that make this place so special. But all this luxury and exclusiveness comes with a price tag: Song Saa is for the wealthy castaways only!

At the resort’s heart is a world-class restaurant and lounge, spectacularly positioned just off the island’s shoreline and surrounded by sea. A short stroll on the boardwalk will leave you perfectly positioned to take in dramatic sunsets, seascapes and starry nights. Other resort facilities include an infinity edged pool, gym, spa & wellness centre, yoga & meditation centre and a beachside water sports centre offering a range of activities such as sailing, diving, kayaking and snorkeling.

The resort spans the islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Bong, connected by a footbridge over a marine reserve they have established to safeguard the islands’ reefs and marine life including dugongs, seahorses and exotic species of tropical fish.

Most of the islands remain undeveloped – deserted oases of virgin rainforests, tropical reefs and glistening white beaches. Guests can explore the islands’ reefs, wander among virgin rainforest and lie on the pure white sands of Song Saa’s beaches.

Though the interiors will be all high-end contemporary minimalism, the villas will also draw inspiration from traditional Cambodian fishing villages, especially with features like thatched roofs, and rough-cut natural wood and driftwood being used in the furniture.

Even prior to the resort opening, Song Saa Private Island has already been selected as “The Hottest New Trips for 2011” by the Financial Times, “Stylish, chic, and sexy: this year’s best new places to stay” by the Times and “2011 Where to go, what to do” by The Independent.

    After kicking out the local residents – now living in poverty on the mainland, no more able to fish their waters, getting a land concession from one of the most corrupt governments in the world – after paying a nice sum of protection money, the island can now ready to cater to the uber-rich and by keeping its dirty, little secret many tourist will come to see the wonders of the thiefdom of scambodia….

    The prices are outrageous. It may look gorgeous on the website, but this is Cambodia – one of the world’s lowliest economies – not some uber-resort like the Maldives, the Seychelles or some of the Caribbean. There are many other hotels on this archipelago and on the nearby Thai and Vietnamese coast that are just as cool but less expensive.

    May I just say what a relief to discover someone who genuinely knows what they are talking about on the web.
    You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More people must look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you most certainly have the gift.
