Luxurious and intimate private island resort
There are a handful of resorts that have opened recently in Cambodia, but one that has certainly caught our eye is this luxurious new Six Senses property, on a private tropical island in the south east of the country.
There are only 40 suites here, which provide a welcome sense of intimacy. All have their own pool. Choose the Beach Retreat if you really want privacy; set on the western side of the island, it consists of two free-standing villas and sleeps up to four guests.
What really stands out at Krabey, as we’ve come to expect from Six Senses, is the spa. You can meditate in the herbal steam tent or explore a range of Cambodian healing treatments before joining an aerial yoga class or sleep programme. Once you’ve dropped the little ones off at the kids’ club, relax on the beach or explore the palm-fringed island by kayak and dine at one of several on-site restaurants to discover the sensual flavours of Khmer cooking.
