Off the west coast of Cambodia in the Gulf of Thailand lies Krabey Island, one of a cluster of islands that also includes Bamboo Island, Koh Kiev and Kaoh Chanlou. As the smaller of the four, Krabey feels like a secret hideaway. Seclusion and tranquillity are here for castaways seeking an authentic tropical escape, and the Six Senses Krabey Island resort is on hand to host your visit in true luxury style.

Luxury Holidays to Six Senses Krabey Island

Just 30 acres of verdant jungle make up the island itself, while the resort’s accommodation setup is limited to just 40 villas – all with private pool. The result is an uncrowded, unhurried place, where the tempo tends to go with the flow of the tide. Indeed, the connection between water and land created by the resort’s boardwalk echoes the laidback pace to life at Six Senses Krabey.

It’s here, after a short boat transfer from the hotel’s mainland reception (Sihanouk International Airport is a mere 10 minutes further), that guests first disembark at their island paradise. Classic fisherman’s houses were the inspiration behind the main lobby, lounge and sunset bar designs. The lush surrounding landscape meanwhile was brought into play to enhance the dining experience, where Cambodian and global cuisines are complemented by an impressive wine cellar.
