Highly-anticipated Six Senses Krabey Island opens in Cambodia

Guests are now able to visit the stunning 40-villa Six Senses Krabey Island in Cambodia following the opening of the resort this week.

Blending into the lush canopy of trees and tropical landscape, this 12-hectare private resort features 40 free-standing pool villas, an extensive Six Senses Spa, a sunset bar, two unique restaurants, an oceanfront boardwalk, and a sky observatory, to name just a few of the enticing features on the island.

The private island is located three miles off Ream National Park in the Gulf of Thailand in southern Cambodia. Just a 10-minute drive to the resort from Sihanouk International Airport, this island is sufficiently remote yet not cut off from the country that offers endless cultural and historical experiences.

There are activities for all ages and energy levels at the resort including water sports, fishing, snorkelling, speedboat excursions to neighbouring islands, an organic farm visit with cooking classes, and a horizon lap pool.

An sustainable ethos has been applied throughout the Cambodian resort by developers: the villas are sumptuous and thoughtfully designed, with green living roves and maximum use of natural daylight. Each has a sundeck for lounging and alfresco dining with infinity-edged plunge pools with rain showers.

Elsewhere in the resort, two unique restaurants are included with menus focused on quality local produce and seasonality, much of it grown at the resort’s own organic farm and herb garden.

At the resort’s signature restaurant Tree, dishes offer a modern twist on traditional Khmer cuisine with a creative interpretation of Southeast Asian flavours, while AHA serves an eclectic menu of light yet satisfying international favourites for lunch and dinner.

For those seeking out rejuvenation and beauty treatments on the island, the Six Senses Spa is inspired by the sacred Khmer Kbal Spean River, with the Six Senses Integrated Wellness screening helping to create a personalised programme to boost metabolism, energy levels, and brainpower.

The island is a 15-minute cruise from the resort’s mainland jetty and provides a tranquil setting in which to relax and reconnect. Experiences range from water activities, island hopping, boat trips, and personal wellness programs and treatments.
