This fearless woman bought an island , now know as “Song Saa Island”, for $15,000 and helped hundreds of local people.
It all started back in 2005, when Melita’s husband, Rory, was invited to work in #Cambodia. Naturally, she followed him on this big adventure. They were planning to stay in South Asia for a year and then move to New York.
But after spending some time in Cambodia, they decided to stay. It’s been 16 years now, and they still love it here. Moreover, Melita managed to buy a deserted local island for $15,000 and turned it into a chic resort.
It took 2.5 years, hundreds of people, and a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears, but they eventually designed and built their dream. Today the heavenly place called Song Saa Resort. This luxury Song Saa Private Island features 27 intimate villas, a Cambodian restaurant, a bar, spa, and, of course, the amazing scenery.
The Song Saa resort can be reached by boat from Cambodia’s port of #Sihanoukville in less than an hour. Those coming from other cities can take a helicopter straight to the Song Saa beaches.
