With sustainability at its heart, Song Saa Private Island has serious eco cred thanks to its team of marine biologists on staff, as well as various recycling and waste initiatives.

Soon, Cambodia’s first luxury coastal resort will welcome a new project called the Song Saa Reserve, an ethically-led integrated resort that combines luxury with eco-friendly initiatives. 

Expected to be built near the famed Angkorian temple of Banteay Srei in the Cambodian province of Siem Reap, the resort will be home to hotel and villa residences that integrate seamlessly with educational centers, a solar farm, and restored sections of the indigenous rainforest. Among these, a 35-hectare lake will be a central feature.

Other sustainability-enhancing initiatives include a hospitality training center, permaculture gardens, and more.

Speaking on the project’s inspiration, Rory Hunter, CEO and co-founder of the Song Saa Collective, said: “This project scales up our ethos and approach and allows Cambodia to show the world how tourism, done right, is a powerful means for lifting people out of poverty and protecting the environment, while delivering experiences of a lifetime to global travelers and attractive returns to our shareholders.”
