Good news for those who love the fabulous things in life –  Six Senses Krabey Island is now taking reservations ahead of its 1 December opening.

This exciting new resort will see Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas expand into Cambodia for the first time – a country steeped in history and re-emerging onto the world stage of exotic destinations.

With 40 pool villas set around the naturally landscaped 30-acre island, with its highest point being 137 feet (42 metres) above sea level, the idyllic resort will offer a place of relaxed tranquility.

From its beginnings in 1995, Six Senses quickly became recognised as the hospitality industry’s pioneer of sustainable practices, demonstrating that responsibility can be successfully wedded to uncompromised high-end facilities.  Six Senses Krabey Island further reinforces this dedication to the environment and the community.

The resort’s private pool villas exemplify Six Senses’ commitment to using sustainable material while embracing modern technology for total guest convenience and comfort. Living rooms include a day bed that can be adapted to an additional bed, minibar and working desk. The master bedroom will feature a bed with a netting canopy while the bathroom includes a generous bathtub, with some villas featuring outdoor showers.

The resort will also offer the Sleep with Six Senses experience which includes Naturalmat mattresses and dedicated sleep ambassadors to guide guests in achieving the very best night’s sleep. Retreat and Reserve villa categories will offer mini wine cellars.

For foodies, dine at the all-day restaurant featuring a fresh breakfast buffet and a la carte selections, casual lunches and seasonally themed dinners.  Snacks, refreshments and light meals are presented poolside, as well as a deli complete with an ice cream parlour.  An elevated bar will offer the choice of stunning views out to the sea or a cozy sunken area to relax and enjoy evening libations.

Indochine is the resort’s specialty dining restaurant which will also include a communal dining table in front of the show kitchen. Make the most of hands-on cooking classes, which will introduce budding chefs to some of the finer points of Indochine-inspired cuisine.

Six Senses Spa Krabey Island will feature the Six Senses specialty menu as well as several ancient Cambodian healing traditions and multi-day rejuvenation journeys, Six Senses Integrative Wellness, detox, yoga and workshops. Ideal for relaxing, the spa will also feature a meditation cave, nail bar, gym, outdoor yoga sala and outdoor treatment sala. A spa library and juice bar will incorporate the rich varieties of fresh fruits and herbs from the island – perfect for pitstop refreshment from the heat.
