Song Saa Island, Cambodia

A truly beautiful island. Song Saa makes for a great break following a few days visiting the many temples outside Siem Reap. We travelled with our young girls and stayed for 3 nights travelling on the excellent new connecting flight from Siem Reap direct to Sihanoukville on Cambodia Angkor Air (50 minutes).

We enjoyed many lazy hours in the pool and beach deck.

Experience one of Cambodia’s few luxury island resorts off the coast of Koh Rong in the Gulf of Thailand.

Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, Maldives

Beach

The Coco Palm Dhuni Kohlu is on a beautiful island, the resort is fringed by white sandy beaches, dressed with luxurious tropical vegetation, and hosts a blue crystal clear lagoon for the enjoyment of a vast range of water sports. Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu features delightful thatched villas, either dotted among palm trees in carefully planned tranquility or on stilts over the lagoon, with spectacular views of the sea and nearby desert islands.

I visited from the nearby Soneva Fushi resort in 2012. The rooms are simple and most do not have TV but offer easy access to beaches.

The food is very good.

The water is amongst the clearest of any resorts I visited in the Maldives.

The resort is home to 98 exquisite villas that either sit on the prefect white sands of the miniature island or stand in the coral banks for that true sense of escapism and abandonment. Because this is a Coco resort, expect the utmost in indulgence and luxury with everything from the finest cuisine to international standard diving for you to enjoy. Romanticism is alive and well here. This hotel offers an all-inclusive board basis, see special features for the all-inclusive package

You’ll have as much space and privacy as this couple when you stay at Coco Palm.

Plunge Pool

Enjoy your very own plunge pool with a water villa.

Beach Villa

Swimming and snorkelling in the lagoon are essential features of a stay here.
