Six Senses to debut in Cambodia with luxury island resort. 40-pool villa resort to open on private island in 2017
Scheduled to open in 2017, the new Six Senses Krabey Island will be a luxury resort set on a 12-hectare island in the Gulf of Thailand. Guests will be able to access the property by boat from #Sihanoukville.
Six Senses’ president, Bernhard Bohnenberger, said the new resort would adhere to his company’s environmental principles.
“We are delighted to add this gorgeous gem to our portfolio of island escapes,” said Bohnenberger. “It is a great pleasure to align with a like-minded and committed owner when it comes to sustainability and wellness.
“[Resort developer] RPB Investment… has taken careful steps to preserve and protect the island of Krabey and is also employing thoughtful and conscientious design into the project’s building practices. We are eager to offer an enticing holiday option and new destination to travellers bound for Cambodia and Southeast Asia,” he added.
Six Senses Krabey Island will feature 40 pool villas, all built using sustainable materials. All units will feature separate bedrooms and living rooms, bathtubs, private plunge pools and outdoor decks. Some villas will also feature outdoor showers, and the Retreat and Reserve villa categories will offer mini wine cellars.
F&B options at the resort will include two restaurants, a deli and ice cream parlour, and an elevated bar overlooking the sea, while other facilities will include an outdoor cinema and an observatory. And the island’s Six Senses Spa will feature a meditation cave, nail bar, gym, outdoor yoga area, and a range of alternative treatments in the Alchemy Bar.
Six Senses Krabey Island will be the second new island resort launched by the company in 2017, along with the Six Senses Fiji. These projects will join the company’s existing portfolio of 11 Six Senses- and Evason-branded resorts in China, the Maldives, Oman, Portugal, the Seychelles, Thailand and Vietnam.
It’s a good news for #tourism of Cambodia especially the our famous beach town of Sihanoukville. This giant international branded is going to be the biggest competitor of Song Saa Private Island.
